MLSBThis is a really cool Study Bible. There are quite few features that really caught my attention. Due to my love of history the fact that there are Life stories of people throughout history placed in the pages of this Bible is one that really interested me.  There were quite a few people whose stories I had never heard or have ever even heard of.  I like that there are “person profiles” and “place profiles” on the pages where they are mentioned rather than just in the back of the book.  Which I like so I don’t have to flip back and forth to read this information . Also the maps are placed in the areas they are needed and I love the insights that shows more information about the subject that is being discussed in the scripture.

In the back of this Bible is an index to the Person Profiles, Place Profiles, Life Stories and so much more. That way if there is a specific person or place you are looking to learn more about you can go right to it.

This Bible comes in eBook, Hardback ($24.99, turquoise and gray, and gray and black. And is only available in the New King James Version.

If you are wanting just straight scripture then this is not the Bible for you. However, if you want to dig deeper and study more this is a great choice of Bible.

I really like this Bible and looking forward to using it more during my study times.
