This is one of the nicest study bibles that I've found anywhere. Most KJV bibles use the verse by verse center column format, but this is one of the few that uses a paragraph format with references in the margin. The binding is tight but flexible. Most store bought Bibles do not have the flexibility this binding offers. It can almost be folded in half which is also hard to find in this price range. The paper is soft and it comes in plenty of cover styles. I personally like the look and feel of the leatherlike cover. Again most KJV bibles (plain text, reference, or study) use a verse by verse format which doesn't provide for easier casual reading. This Bible offers a great paragraph format, references, original translators notes, decent commentary and study helps at a decent price.
