    Got my copy via UPS this afternoon. I went for the Montana calfskin as a birthday present to myself. I've only briefly perused it, but as far as fit and finish it is a beauty. The cover is very like the premium Nelson Signature Bibles, and the text block is perfect, gilding, two ribbon markers. The made in USA text block is not puckered in the gutter from over tight sewing as some of the Nelsons I've seen were. So if you pre-ordered it ought to show up any day now. :up:

    With its 10pt type! I wonder if they will issue a Large Print or Kindle version.

    There is an edition currently available for Olive Tree and one forthcoming for Logos.


    My experience with Bibles on a Kindle have not been stellar. It is really slooooooow trying to navigate a Bible on a Kindle. I would go with the Olive Tree edition over a Kindle edition.

    Got mine today and it's gorgeous. I'm really looking forward to using it in my studies. I did happen to have the first two pages of Exodus not cut correctly. Anybody else have this happen?

    I'm looking forward to this Bible. At this stage it still hasn't been released in Australia, so I've got to wait patiently.

    I look forward to some thorough reviews of this bible. I will probably buy one of the lesser expensive editions.

    They also plan to have the contents online and free for those owning the printed version. You should have found a card in the bible with a registration number for the free signup. Others will have to pay something like $15 for the online version. The site is not quite set up, but you can see it here: http://www.holybible.com

    Now this is really a great benefit! I do a lot of my bible studying/reading via computer. Usually biblegateway is my go to option, but I would definitely prefer to be able to access the Study Bible.

    With all the study notes? What a great benefit! I too do most of my reading online and only use the print version for Sunday worship and family devotionals.

    I guess our reading lives begin with Century Schoolbook, and eventually end there.:gpl:
    10pt is considered a regular text weight but typefaces are not all the same size so some are more reading friendly than others.

    Not sure if this will be useful for a comparison of the font size, but on the left an old Oxford Longprimer, below that a Pitt Minion, and the new RHKJV on the right. The main text in the RH is nearly as large as the Longprimer in the Oxford, and the study notes have a larger font than that of the standard Pitt Minion.

    That was useful. Even though I'm young, I hate small print. I have the Longprimer and like it. The RHKJV looks good!

    Hi,

    Just wondering, should this Study Bible, or any other study bible, simply be called "bible" as some have referred it to?

    It seems that more and more that God's inspired Word is not enough. Have to add man's thoughts to it to finish it off.

    I have noticed too that a lot of modern versions of the Bible, have an abundance of notes, which to me are neither warranted or helpful. The ESV bible, even goes so far as to say their man-made notes are integral to the text.

    I am not saying study bibles are not useful, just that the word "bible" should refer only to God's Word.

    look forward to having the notes in Logos but a Study Bible without a cross reference system seems odd to me...one of the important aspects of bible study...no?

    For me study Bibles are very useful if the theology is correct. Handy if a commentary isn't available or if the reader just wants a quick clarification. For someone such as myself, who is not well schooled in doctrine, Biblical history, or linguistics, the notes, written by people who are well schooled in those things, are very useful. I don't carry one of those bricks around with me, and prefer a text/reference Bible for devotional reading, but for specific studies I find them invaluable.

    If you use Logos snd/or Wordsearch you also have all your library contents available online, too. As noted above, it the RHS notes will soon be available for Logos users, too.

    “Creating this Study Bible has provided a constant reminder of the relevance of the message of the OT for life today. It is my prayer that those who use the Study Bible will profit spiritually as I have profited and been blessed in the production. What better job could there be than to pour over the Scriptures for multiple hours every day.” So says the OT editor at this link.

    After he finished pouring over the scriptures, I am sure that his Bible was ruined.

    This study bible has some hidden treasures not advertised. For example, the twenty page, century by century history of the church is woderful. Also is the pages on how to live as a Christian.

    Maybe it was on purpose or an omission, but discovering these sort of things makes for a pleasurable confirmation of the purchase.

    Do you have any timetable for Logos or Word Search to produce the notes in their formats?

    I received my genuine leather edition on Saturday. I have been excited about getting this Bible since I ordered it a couple of months ago. I am greatly pleased with it so far. It has a very readable text type, great articles, and plenty of concise but thoroughly reformed study notes. Love it! :up:

    Legacy? Pretty cool to be asked to contribute! I'm guessing that the gazillions of dollars that you received (NOT) for your labors did not compensate you for the misspelling?

    The legacy part was tongue'n cheek :) All proceeds belong to RHB and the furtherance of Reformed material. It was a great honor to be involved.

    I note that the website says that the study bible includes: "Ancient creeds, confessions, and catechisms with introductions." What are the creeds/confessions/chatechisms included???

    Thanks!
