This is our favorite Bible for studying in, and we're excited to share it with you!
While most study Bibles are full of notes, commentary, and additional information (which is very helpful), this Bible is different. This Bible aims to help you study on your own, just as we've been doing together in the "Busy Mamas" studies.
For each book, this Bible gives you a few pages of instructions for studying it - what to look for, what to mark, and how to interact directly with the text. The study instructions come from Kay Arthur at Precept Ministries.
The margins are not as wide as the original NISB, but there's still plenty of room to write your own notes, make lists, and draw pictures.
Available in the ESV or NASB translation.
