 This is a wonderful bible.  
The arrival of this bible was absolutely perfect.  I was beginning a new study in prayer and it was suggested that you read the Gospel of Luke so you can learn about prayer from Jesus. 
 As I opened the Bible to Luke the first thing I noticed was the reference given to the author, time, key verse and it also gives a theme. These areas gave me a good reference for what I was about to read.  For a lot of people these are important elements when beginning to read God's word.  The text is in NKJV which conforms to the thoughts flow of the of the 1611 Bible.  There are subject headings to assist the reader in identifying topics and transitions in the biblical content.  Words or phrases in italics indicate expressions in the original language which require clarification and  there are also cross references and translator's notes.  At the bottom of each page are verse-by-verse study notes and theological notes.  The words of Jesus are in red.  
There were many things I liked about this Bible.  
-First, the text is easy to read and understand. 
-Second, the study notes further explained the scripture and helped with comprehension and implementation of the scripture.  
-Third, I liked the background given of the author.  I don't believe I had ever heard this before. 
-Fourth, the time frame.
-Fifth, the theme of the Gospel. 

In the back of the book gives theological notes and index by title and  a large concordance that is very helpful when looking for something directly.  Then lastly there are 8 pages of full-color biblical maps. Each is very precise and beautifully illustrated. 
The one thing I didn't like about this book was the print size.  If it had of been just a little bigger it would have been much better. 
 I would recommend this to anyone looking for a study bible.
