The Expanded Bible

I have to admit that I have mixed feeling about Bibles like the Expanded Bible and Amplified Bible. This is because we are warned of adding or taking away from scripture. This being said I do like set up of the Bible, subject headings in the margins with wide margins for writing notes. The study notes are embedded in the text. This can lead to some confusion or chopping reading. I recommend using this Bible alongside you regular study Bible. The study notes and translation used (it is clearly not NKJV, close but not quite) can give some good insights and clarification to confusing or hard to understand scriptures. Overall this is a nice Bible that I am pleased to add to my collection.
