Rainbow study bible – review atypical fibrous histiocytoma

Everyone who knows me knows that I color-code my Bible. Now, lots of people mark their Bible’s with color, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about actually coding my Bible with color. I color-code topically (my favorite way to study). I have around 20 topics that I mark in a atypical fibrous histiocytoma specific way. I usually only color the major verses in any topic. Almost everyone I know has expressed interest in having their atypical fibrous histiocytoma Bibles color-coded but most of them don’t want to do the coloring. It is time-consuming and tedious work and it can be difficult deciding atypical fibrous histiocytoma on how to color some verses. There is a Bible that is colored for you and atypical fibrous histiocytoma it has every verse in the Bible marked. It’s called the Rainbow Study Bible. This is not your typical study Bible. It doesn’t have commentary with Theological notes. Instead of commentary it has in-text maps. So instead of opinions it has facts. That’s the kind of study Bible I can get behind. I am reviewing the Holman edition in KJV. Pros

The cover is an imitation leather called LeatherTouch. It’s a two-tone cover in brown and chestnut. The brown is smooth and the chestnut is textured. I like the feel of the chestnut portion the best. It has stitching around the perimeter and has a vinyl atypical fibrous histiocytoma liner that is glued. The cover looks nice. I’m not sure how long it would last. It doesn’t want to lie down flat after you’ve opened it. I would love to have this Bible in a quality atypical fibrous histiocytoma leather such as calfskin. The binding is glued. It does stay open in the middle of Genesis and atypical fibrous histiocytoma I’m sure it will lay flat at Genesis 1 after atypical fibrous histiocytoma it breaks in a little. I don’t know how long this cover will last, but I’m seriously considering rebinding it in a premium leather once atypical fibrous histiocytoma it wears out. Paper and Print

The paper looks and feels like the standard paper that atypical fibrous histiocytoma is found in most study Bibles today. It’s not high quality but it’s not bad either. It’s not as opaque as I would like and it atypical fibrous histiocytoma does feel thin. I was surprised at how well it takes the color. After using it for a while I’ve come to appreciate how good the color and print atypical fibrous histiocytoma consistency looks and the opacity isn’t that bad. The paper has a blue hue (you can only see it in the gutter). I prefer a cream hue but this paper might be atypical fibrous histiocytoma necessary for the color-consistency.

The font is 10/11. The text is black-letter. Rather than having the words of Christ in red, the entire words of God in both testaments, including the words of Christ in his humanity, are underlined. I like having the words of God in the Old atypical fibrous histiocytoma Testament marked. This makes it difficult to do any of your own atypical fibrous histiocytoma underlining. It’s not out of the question- it’s just difficult. Since this Bible is already marked, I’ll make the trade. The font is sharp and readable and the print quality atypical fibrous histiocytoma is consistent. The boldness of the font is darker than most study atypical fibrous histiocytoma Bibles. Color Code

The topical system isn’t perfect but it’s a great place to start. Some verses are categorized as a complete passage rather than atypical fibrous histiocytoma on a verse-by-verse level. For example, Matthew 7:1 is placed in Prophecy because of verse 2. I’ve color-coded my Bible long enough to know that you can’t cover every topic and many verses will fall into atypical fibrous histiocytoma multiple topics. The Bible is too rich and vast to cover everything atypical fibrous histiocytoma in detail, so 12 primary topics are enough. I might categorize a few things differently but overall it atypical fibrous histiocytoma still works. Book Introductions

Every study Bible needs good references. When I compare these references to other Bibles that I atypical fibrous histiocytoma know have 100,000 cross-references, the references in this Bible look the same. Based on that I’m guessing there are 100,000 cross-references. I prefer my study Bibles to give me the tools atypical fibrous histiocytoma to do my own study and references are essential. I want my references to be as complete as possible. The more the better. This one has lots of good references. They are in the center-column and are keyed to the text with letters. The center-column contains the chapter and verse numbers in bold, then the letters for the references and the references themselves. If there are more than will fit in the center atypical fibrous histiocytoma column the rest are placed under the last column of atypical fibrous histiocytoma text on the page.

One of my tests for references is Genesis 1:1. This one has 21. This is far more than most reference Bibles. Another of my tests is the Gospels. A good set of references will link the parallel passages atypical fibrous histiocytoma in the Gospels and build a Harmony of the Gospels atypical fibrous histiocytoma right in your references. For this test I use Matthew 10:33. A good reference Bible will link it with Mark 8:38, Luke 9:26, and 2 Timothy 2:12. Most Bibles have one or two of these references. This Bible has them all. I consider the cross-references one of the strengths of this Bible. Translation Notes

There are lots of section headings throughout the text. They’re in italics and do a great job of breaking atypical fibrous histiocytoma up the text and making it easy to find what atypical fibrous histiocytoma you’re looking for. They are no references within the section headings for the atypical fibrous histiocytoma harmony of the Gospels, but considering they are covered in the center-column cross references there’s no need for it. Additional Material

I love the features of the Rainbow Study Bible. The color-coding is great for topical study – which happens to be my favorite type of Bible study. It is a great resource for teachers and preachers in atypical fibrous histiocytoma preparing messages and for students and layman for personal Bible atypical fibrous histiocytoma study. The study material in this Bible is as non-biased as it gets – given you historical facts rather than Theological opinion. Most of the features that I’ve been looking for in a Bible are here. For that reason I wish that is was also available atypical fibrous histiocytoma in a non-color edition so I can use my own color-code. Not that I want mine and not this one – I want both. It would be a great choice for topical study for atypical fibrous histiocytoma both preachers and teachers as well as personal and group atypical fibrous histiocytoma study.

What a nice prepared study bible. As you know, books that I treasure, I refuse to mark up. I do this not because I don’t believe that a marked up book is not useful, but because I have some wonderful books that I acquired atypical fibrous histiocytoma during the time I was getting my education that I atypical fibrous histiocytoma have gone back and read since and looked at my atypical fibrous histiocytoma notes and highlighting with horror, wondering why I ever marked them up as I had. I can guarantee you that given 20-50 years, even 5-10 years later one will wonder why he defaced such atypical fibrous histiocytoma a wonderful book. Those of you all that do this may not feel atypical fibrous histiocytoma this way, I can only report what my experience has been.

I still mark up books, an example is, The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis, I have a clean copy somewhere of about 50 years atypical fibrous histiocytoma of age, but I recently purchased a used paperback in almost new atypical fibrous histiocytoma condition for the express purpose of reading, highlighting, and making notes in it. I think I spent less than $10 for this book, and after reading it (I’ve read this book many times), I passed it on to a new christian that was atypical fibrous histiocytoma struggling with the concepts dealt with by Lewis in this atypical fibrous histiocytoma treasure. My library still has the clean copy that I purchased atypical fibrous histiocytoma sometime in 1962 or 1963. I have decided if I am going to mark up atypical fibrous histiocytoma something it will be a cheap paperback that I have atypical fibrous histiocytoma no reason to treasure. Others probably will disagree with my conclusions on this matter, I hold no animus towards folks that disagree with me, I either buy something cheap and mark it up myself, then save it for future reference or give it away atypical fibrous histiocytoma depending on need.

This bible appears to be a useful tool for study, I particularly like the maps and the comments about them, Geography has a profound influence on behavior, and an understanding of it goes a long way to atypical fibrous histiocytoma help understanding of how people behave and why. For those who don’t hold the eccentric attitude towards marking up valuable and atypical fibrous histiocytoma treasured literature that I do, this bible should be a real asset. For myself, I’ll stick to my notebooks, my Westminister Reference Bible, my Matthew Henry, my Cruden’s and my Smiths’ Bible Dictionary and various other references that I use and atypical fibrous histiocytoma keep what I learn in notebooks.
