    The Thoughts for personal and family worship found at the end of each chapter are great and very thought provoking.;)

    Probably the best outline I've read so far is here: Operation Actually Read Bible: Reformation Heritage Study Bible (KJV)

    Although Heritage are probably more interested in contents review I wouldn't mind reading what Mark Bertrand has to say.

    Still patiently waiting for my copy to reach Australia's shores ☺️

    After having the RH KJV Study Bible for an hour and reading carefully through the introductory material, etc... (looking forward to looking at the notes) I have to say this thing is pretty remarkable in a wonderful, God-honoring way. But I tell you probably the best aspect of this bible is simply its size. It is easily half as big as the monstrous ESV Study Bible. This makes the RH Study Bible portable and usable as a regular, everyday Bible.

    The "Thoughts for Personal/Family Worship" that accompany every single chapter in the RH KJV Bible are worth the price of the whole thing.

    Does anyone here consider this superior to the Reformation Study Bible (ESV) by R.C. Sproul for reasons other than the difference in version?

    I think the notes are more comprehensive for one thing. The "Thoughts for Personal/Family Worship" that Revered Glaser mentioned in a post above, are great even for those of us who have no family. The Apostles' Creed, Nicene Creed, Athanasasian Creed, Belgic Confession, The Heidelberg Catechism, The Canons Of Dort, Westminster Confession Of Faith (1647), Westminster Shorter Catechism (1647) Westminster Larger Catechism (1648) are included, as well as, Robert Murray M' Cheyne's 'Read the Bible in a Year Plan', a series of articles on "How To Live As A Christian," Twenty Centuries Of Church History and the Table Of Weights And Measures, plus a Concordance.

    I have the Reformation Study Bible NKJV and it is very good, but for one thing the print in it is smaller, and it doesn't include aforementioned resources that the KJVSB does. I have read that R.C. Sproul is publishing a new and updated version of the RFSB, not sure which translation, or what additional resources may be included though.

    Plenty of reasons why the RHB scores over the RSB (I have the ESV version)

    1 - The articles on basic/major truth (categorized as an ST course)
    2 - The How to Live as a Christian Section articles (36 in total)
    3 - Creeds and Confessions
    4 - The thoughts on personal and family worship (speak to the heart)
    5 - The Church History overview (20 centuries)
    6 - Lots of study content directly adapted from Reformers and Puritans
    7 - The most famous Bible Reading Plan

    This is simply amazing!

    Just received my copy. I'm really liking it. Any idea when the site will be up? The home page says mid-December. :encourage:

    The site is up, it is just not fully functional as of yet. There is no registration yet, but you can read the Bible on the site. Not the full featured study notes &c yet, but the text of the KJV. I assume they are working on all of the bells and whistles.

    I meant when will the site be functioning as it is intended. It currently says mid-December.

    I just got my copy of the RHSB on Saturday. :banana::banana: I am really looking forward to diving into it in the new year.

    It looks fantastic. If it explains as many archaic words and phrases as it appears to based on a brief perusal, this will be a tremendous help for those wanting to read the AV. I think that's even the case if one has a doctrinal quibble here and there with the theology of the editors.

    I'm thinking that cross references may have been left out because that would have made for a bigger Bible. Although I generally prefer a reference edition, I've found them to be a distraction at times also. As noted above, the relatively modest size compared to other Study Bibles is a big plus.

    Just received a complimentary copy for a contribution of the leather edition which was delayed due to USPS taking its time forwarding from my old address; it looks pretty nice. It is pretty fat I will say.
