My Thoughts on the Modern Life Study Bible:
I liked the colorful format and font size of the Modern Life Study Bible. It made the text very easy to read. There are many sidebars peppered throughout the actual text which expanded on different topics. I personally prefer to read Bibles which have the text alone (no footnotes or sidebars) because I find the extra commentary distracting, but since this is a study Bible, sidebars are expected. Overall, this format was very visually appealing and I plan to use it whenever I want to research specific topics in the Bible.
