The back of the box that the bible comes in promises "online access to a gallery of photos and bonus material". This website does not seem to exist; and the photos and maps in the bible are small and not very easy to read. Disappointed. (Posted on 12/25/2015)

Excellent, well prepared and presented. The information brings the Scripture alive for my teen study group. As another review has said it brings the culture and context alive. As a lay teacher with the teenage class, this is a wonderful tool to make Scripture relevant and not just "history".

The only disappointment was the online access to the photos and bonus material does not work. I enter the website address, but it does not come up for me.
Having something online, "tecky" would be useful to keep the teens engaged in bible study.

Still an excellent investment. (Posted on 12/11/2015)

I absolutely LOVE this Bible! The insets of historical information are worth their own book, and the footnotes explaining referenced concepts are invaluable! I've never understood the Bible at the depth and with the realism that I do now. This wonderful work brings alive the culture of the people who lived during each time period referenced in the Bible. Book introductions offer an additional layer of realism and history to each and every book of the Bible. It's an investment, but one you won't regret. During Bible study now, I'm able to answer questions with more info than just a flat answer. Several members have subsequently bought this Bible too now. (Posted on 4/24/2014)
