|Review:||Although a nice bible, I would not consider this as a study bible in any way; there is nothing contained in it (footnotes, references, etc.) that could classify it as such. I would recommend this as a bible but definitely not as a study bible.|

|Review:||thought there would be notes next to or below columns, why is this called a study bible?|

|Review:||This is a great Bible choice for those interested in being able to defend the Catholic Faith. It has an entire Apologetics section citing Scripture verses for Catholic beliefs and practices. I have never found a Bible that did this and it is very helpful to me to have this tool. Even if you are just interested in a good study Bible, this is a great choice.|

|Review:||I am used to protestant study Bibles that have lots of footnotes and cross-referenced Scriptures, Concordances, and Cyclopedia indexes. I did just discover the index in this Bible, so that is good. I am still getting used to how to use it best. I am not dissatisfied with this purchase. I just wish Catholic Study Bibles had a little more meat to them.|

|Review:||This is a truly beautiful bible. However, the title Study Bible is somewhat misleading. Since I am rather a novice to serious bible study I was hoping from the title to find more of a study guide embedded within this purchase. Anyway ,the illustrations are beautiful and it is a bible I will use after I find a truly good STUDY GUIDE supplement to accompany it.|
