The Henry Morris Study Bible is not a small Bible in any way. If fact, it’s probably the largest study Bible that we own. The hardcover makes it feel very sturdy. While the dust jacket is pretty, I tend to prefer it without the dust jacket. The two ribbon bookmarks (one for the Old Testament and one for the New Testament) make it easy to keep track of scripture passages you want to reference or cross-reference. The binding appears to be quite sound. The pages are thicker than most study Bibles that I’ve encountered which makes for easier reading. The font type (10 pt.) is easy to read. This is a red letter edition which features the words of Jesus in a lovely red color. The commentary is divided from the 2 column per page text by a line. I like the fact that the commentary is in the same font type as the Bible text. It not only looks nice, but it also is easy to follow and read.
Each book of the Bible begins with an introduction. Some books have additional commentary such as Genesis which talks about authorship of the book. The Old Testament and New Testament also have an introduction. The Bible also features:
- Index to Major Topics in Annotations
- 22 Appendices
- 8 Full-color Maps
While the Bible has wonderful commentary throughout, the main focus of this Bible is supporting the literal, six-day Biblical Creation. Overall, I was quite impressed with the thorough commentary and the feel of the Bible. One thing to note is that the Henry Morris Study Bible is only available in the King James Version. I grew up memorizing scripture from KJV, but we utilize several different translations in our home now. I just wanted to throw that out there as I know some people have strong feelings about Bible translations. If you’re looking for a thorough study Bible that has foundations in the literal account of Genesis, this Bible is probably for you.
