What study Bible do you use?

I am looking to purchase a new study Bible. I currently have several study Bibles that include the Thompson Chain KJV, a NKJV study Bible, and a KJV/Amplified Bible.

I have been considering purchasing an ESV Bible, and just wanted an opinion on translations, and study helps out there. Going to the Bible section at the book store is overwhelming, with so many different translations, and study helps available.

Would appreciate hearing what works for you, and why. Thanks!

Didn't know that about the 666. LOL... is the internet the "antichrist" then? interesting.

I have e-sword, and also use biblehub. But, I still prefer the old fashioned pages to turn. I don't have a kindle either. Guess I'm just still old fashioned, but there is something precious to me about turning pages where I can write thoughts on, underline, highlight, and so on. Because of this, I tend to wear out Bibles pretty quickly, lol.

KJV seems to be the standard that most are familiar with, for sure.

Take just 5 minutes and watch this video titled "Best Overall Bible". I did research after buying many Bibles and being disappointed with quality. Bought this one and it has **exceeded** my expectations. VERY high quality. Check out the video and let me know what you think.

As you stated "Study Bible" in your question I will say that I have been prone to follow the MacArthur and the Scofield, but there are so many available as you mentioned. Here is a great link to use to find some great recommendations!

http://www.beststudybibles.com/

[the following are quoted from it]

These are examples of Study Bibles that are available:
New International Version Study Bible (NIV)
Archaeological Study Bibles
Holman Christian Standard Bible Study Bibles
New King James Ver. Chronological Study Bibles
Hebrew/Greek Key Word Study Bibles
MacArthur Study Bibles
Scofield Study Bibles
Thompson Chain Reference Study Bibles
Today's New International Version Study Bibles

English Standard Version Study Bibles
New Living Translation Study Bibles
Life Application Study Bibles
Nave's Complete Word Study Topical Bible
Life in the Spirit Bibles
Open Bibles
Apologetics Study Bibles
Ryrie Study Bibles
Spirit Filled Life Study Bibles

Hope this helps you make the decision God would have you to chose. Pray before selecting and guidance is available.

Bill

Thank you for your input! I watched the video, and this guy certainly seems very confident in this Bible. So... you own one of these Bibles?

Question, is the OSAS doctrine "confirmed" in a sense in this Bible, since a Baptist man wrote it? I read through some of the notes detailing this Bible, and thought I would just ask you for your opinion on that.

Thanks Bill! I appreciate your input. Which Bible do you personally like the best? I went to the website, and certainly, there are an incredible number of choices.
