Happy Holidays, readers!

Christmas season is a great time for holiday cheer, gratitude, giving, and all-around merriment. For people of Christian faith, it is a time to celebrate the birth of their savior, Jesus. For many Christians, the holiday marks the time for a new study Bible to replace the one they went through the past year and for others the inspiration to study the Bible for the first time.

For those that are not familiar with what a study Bible is, they are truly an invaluable tool for those wanting a better understanding of the book and their faith. “The MacArthur Study Bible, New American Standard Bible Signature Series”, published by Thomas Nelson, is considered one of the best and most comprehensive study Bibles there is. This new and improved study Bible is quite handsome with its gilt edges but we also selected it due to the simpler, more everyday form of English it uses tending to be one of the easier to read and understand. Although if you prefer KJV, ESB, or any other translation, there are study Bible versions of those as well.

This study Bibles includes 20,000 study notes, an introduction to the Bible, thorough book introductions and outlines, outlines of systematic theology, 125-page concordance, index to key Bible doctrines, Messianic prophecies in the Old Testament, timeline of Old Testament kings and prophet, New Testament chronology, how we got the Bible, how to study the Bible, harmony of the gospels, over 50 Bible full-color maps with an alphabetical subject list, a free Bible study tools download, and so much more which helps to provide the reader with depth and context.

Whether for yourself or a gift, “The MacArthur Study Bible” is an excellent way to reorient yourself with one of this world’s best-selling books!
