The CEB Study Bible gives you the tools, illustrations, and explanations necessary for making informed decisions about the meaning of the Bible. The notes in this study Bible don't tell you what to believe. Instead, they give you the context for what the books of the Bible meant to their earliest readers and what the Bible means right now. The CEB Study Bible is for encouragement and challenge, for guidance and reflection, for study and prayer:
  • The reliable, readable, and relevant Common English Bible translation with the Apocrypha, in a single-column setting
  • Detailed book introductions, outlines, and notes from the finest biblical studies professors
  • Full-color throughout, including more than 200 illustrations, photographs, maps, and charts
  • Hundreds of thousands of cross references
  • More than 300 indexed sidebar and general articles
  • 21 full-color maps designed by National Geographic and fully indexed

My Review:   
I am going to get this out of the way, I Am and Always Will Be A King James Version Gal!  But this Bible is awesome. I had my daughter, who is not a King James Version gal, to pick a couple of her favorite verses and read them out of this version. She did and was impressed that she could understand and like the way this one was written. I also spoke to my daughter n law who also likes the King James Version like me, and had her do the same. She was also impressed as to how close this version was but had some subtle differances. 

As I started reading thru out the Bible and checking the notes, maps, contents in the front and thru out this amazing study Bible I have come to love it. It is fresh and chocked full of great information as well as the actual scriptures. 

So from the front, which the cover is very eye pleasing, to the back with the colorful maps, I am placing this Bible, The CEB Study Bible, on my desk for hands on studying Gods Word. And suggest that you, everyone, to pick one up today and check it out for your self. 

As for my Breath of Life Rating, I rate this book: 

 Five Clock Rating!!  

Disclosure: I did received the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and review. Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
