I love John MacArthur's sermons (I listen online), and am now thrilled to find this treasure-trove of exposition. I have both the 2006 NASB "MacArthur Study Bible" and the 2005 "The MacArthur Bible Commentary." I've compared the two in terms of content (not exhaustively, but fairly extensively), and I believe the 2006 study bible DOES have all the same charts, maps and articles of the 2005 commentary, though several have been renamed and moved to a different section or location. Also, the commentary itself seems to be identical between these two works. LARGE PRINT: I have the large print edition (bonded leather). Both the scripture and the commentary are significantly larger than in the normal print edition, and though the "large-print" commentary isn't AS large as the "large-print" scripture itself, the commentary is still quite a bit larger than it is in the regular print bible and is clearly legible. The scripture font is NOT as large as my other "Giant Print" bible, but is in keeping with "Large Print" expectations. KINDLE edition warning: The charts and maps are too small to be legible. After attempting to read the commentary on my Kindle for a few weeks, I went ahead and bought the full study bible (hard copy, not Kindle) solely in order to view these charts and maps in larger print.

    The Bible is a classic (not to mention the truest words ever written!). This particular publication is great because: - NASB (New American Standard Bible) is a truer translation (I think) from the original Hebrew/Aramaic and Greek - Cross-references - Alternate translations for various words - Well-written footnotes - Maps and other reference materials throughout - I like the leather binding - It was given to me as a gift from my beautiful wife

    I love the layout of this bible and MacArthur's organization of the helps and commentary. I've also come to love the New American Standard translation the most because of its very accurate, literal translation. This is a great resource for bible/theology students, pastors, small group leaders, or anyone else who wishes to dig a little deeper into the bible.

    I got this Bible as a gift several years ago and have read through it twice. I've gained an incredible amount of knowledge from the notes, especially about the Old Testament.

    For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 NIV). Great commentary provided by John MacArthur

    In 2010, i once again took a journey through God's word. This is something I try to do every other year or so. Each time I gain a deeper understanding of God, HIs plan, purposes, and sovereignty. In this particular edition, edited by John MacArthur, there are a myriad of maps, diagrams, footnotes, cross references and more to help you learn and understand God's word. If you're looking for a good study Bible, I highly recommend this one.

    I just finished reading through the Bible in one year. I used this study bible for the adventure. I really enjoyed the study notes in the publication. It clarified verses and content with which I was struggling. I didn't use the Bible reading plan in the book. I used the one from Discipleship Journal so I didn't have to read Job until last--often my hang-up in past attempts.

    Next to the Ryrie NASV, this study bible by Dr. John MacArthur and buttressed by the Master's Seminary, is the finest study bible in current publication. The intros. and notes provide very good historical, cultural and grammatical insights that support the text for faithful application. One book that I'll never finish reading!

    MY FAVOURITE BIBLE VERSION!!! and yes John Macarthur's study notes do help but only to a certain point... it is always nice to continue to study and read his and other FULL length Commentaries, i mean to take a bite is nice but to actually sink your teeth into a txt and grasp it in depth is always best! (Calvin and Spurgeon have excellent commentaries!)

    I enjoy the ministry of John MacArthur and appreciate his passion for God's Word. This edition is in the NASB, a very good Bible translation (perhaps the most literal English translation). The notes are very helpful though I differed with him over his Calvinistic views. However, I do highly recommend this study Bible.

    This is my favorite translation for study, and my favorite study bible for the notes included... .The only problem with this Bible at all is it is too easy to see through the pages, so it can cause a little eye strain if lighting is not just right....

    Great study Bible - excellent scriptural exposition and great "helps" throughout (maps, lists, book introductions, etc.)

    John MacArthur is one of my favorite living theologians today. This study bible has helped me to better understand God's revealed word. MacArthur's study bible is probably one of the most detailed study bibles you will ever come across. He has literally thousands of notes that expound difficult passages. The only issue, if you could call it that, that I have with this book is that he is dispensational so MacArthur does view many passages of Scripture from that framework.

    I loved it! I haven't read the entire thing, obviously... I prefer reading the Bible in my mother tongue (Afrikaans), anyway. But whenever I read something I don't understand, I'm able to check this study Bible - MacArthur explains the Bible with the Bible, explaining cultural background where necessary; he doesn't make up his own stories to twist the Bible his way, which is always something I worry about in study Bibles.

    This is the version I prefer when studying. I often reference back to other versions, especially NLT, when I am having trouble understaning the concept. This is also the version that I have started using for memorization work. (I don't have the MacArthur Study Bible though, I could not access the exact publication I have even though it is here on goodreads.)

    This is my current favorite Bible! I love the NASB text and the study notes are abundant and shed light onto the text. I thank God for John MacArthur!

    I have recently stopped using this Bible because I prefer the NKJV. I still use the MacArthur notes though. I don't always agree with John MacArthur but I do like his notes and ideas.

    I try to read through the Bible every year or two, and I vary the translations. This year I chose the NASB. I've had an NASB on my study shelf for years, but have only used it for reference, not for reading in detail. First - the translation: I didn't care for the NASB as a reading Bible. I will stick to it as a reference Bible. The grammatical constructions were sometimes awkward, and it lacked the readability of some other translations that I've used.

Second - the study notes: There are very detailed study notes, which were often quite helpful. MacArthur takes a pre-millennialism viewpoint, but mentions other viewpoints throughout and why he thinks his interpretation is the best. There is a schedule in the back to read through in a year, which was very helpful. I kept it bookmarked in my Kindle version so I could easily keep track of where I should be. Third - the Kindle version: This was one of the best I've seen for ease of use. It was really easy to navigate back and forth from the notes and cross-references to the text, and to get to a particular spot in the Bible. The reading guide was linked, so I was able to use that as a navigation tool as well. 5 stars for the ease of use. This version made me long for more readability, so in 2018, I'm going back to The Message for my daily reading.

    This was my first time reading the Bible from front to back. I'd tried many times, but always somehow ended up lost around 2 Chronicles. It helped to do some research about timeline and when each author lived. I have a better sense of events now, historically speaking. I'll confess, the New Testament was harder than the Old. My brain seems hardwired to focus on things I do wrong and how I fall short and how I fail, rather than on the incredible mercy and grace I've been given.

It helped to do some research about timeline and when each author lived. I have a better sense of events now, historically speaking. I'll confess, the New Testament was harder than the Old. My brain seems hardwired to focus on things I do wrong and how I fall short and how I fail, rather than on the incredible mercy and grace I've been given. It's almost like humility and awe are thwarted by negative self-talk. How can I see the character of God when I'm so focused planning on how I can do something better next time? And then there's the lovely guilt, induced by "I'll never be good enough." Legalism is a bitch, I tell you. But it's a lie - my efforts will always miss the perfection required. Which is why there's grace. I feel a need to study NT books like Hebrews and James and the Peters. Not just read through, but study. I guess I don't want to take some commentator's word for it (MacArther has a solid reputation, don't get me wrong) that certain passages "actually mean this." Do they really? What do other commentators have to say? Makes me feel like I should have learned Hebrew and Greek for myself, lol.

    I believe this to be one of the best study Bibles in print. One must remember to separate text from notes. God is author of the text. Man is writer of the notes and helps. A study Bible should always be used along with other Bible study helps.

    Not this version, and just the New Testament.
