    This edition is full of good comprehensive study notes. I use MacArthur’s outlines when I set up my own personal in-depth studies. So for me this translation gets used a lot.

    God has blessed the ministry of John MacArthur in an incredible way. Speaking from my own personal experience, I have been extremely blessed by the rigorous and God-honoring teachings of MacArthur. We live in a day and age in which the supposed mark of a "loving Christian" is "tolerance" and "inclusivism." It seems as though Biblical Orthodoxy is under attack in the evangelical churches!

Speaking from my own personal experience, I have been extremely blessed by the rigorous and God-honoring teachings of MacArthur. We live in a day and age in which the supposed mark of a "loving Christian" is "tolerance" and "inclusivism." It seems as though Biblical Orthodoxy is under attack in the evangelical churches! First and foremost, the church must always, without fail, stand upon the unchanging teachings of God, regardless of the cultural environments where we live; then we have the responsibility to transmit the truths of God in such a way that it is understandable to our various cultures. It is my personal opinion that MacArthur has done the first of these tasks with immense precision; also, despite some disagreements from my (one could say) "younger generation," MacArthur's ministry has touched the hearts of countless young people (I am a living example), giving them a passion for God's Word and the furtherance of the Gospel that is so lacking in the church. My generation is much more "soft," (is maybe the best word) than our elder generation. To many younger people, MacArthur can come off as cruel, heartless, and overly critical of others. In some cases, this is probably a correct analysis of him. However, this does not change the fact that many, many people in the church have a false perception of what "love" means. Being tolerant of sin and telling people that "God is love" is not biblical love at all. If Paul and the apostles were alive today, I have no doubt that he would be writing countless letters to our churches, with words similar to that of his letters to the Corinthians. Thank God that He has raised up men like MacArthur who have fought this pathetically heretical notion that the most loving person is someone who speaks in a tolerant tone of passivity; in all honesty, it would take God raising up millions of men like MacArthur to bring balance to the damage done. MacArthur is a Calvinist, Cessationist, Dispensationalist, Complimentarian, and holds to Premillennial Pretribulation eschatology. His teachings line up nearly exactly to that of Moody Bible Institute. I do not necessarily agree with him on everything, but I must say that MacArthur provides very honest and convincing notes that will surely make one grapple with passages throughout the Bible. All in all I heartily recommend this study Bible. It will prove to be an invaluable resource in the believer's life, as we seek to be men and women who strive to "accurately divide the word of truth" (2 Tim. 2:15).

    There is no doubt that the New Kings James Version is a good translation from the original Hebrew, Greek and the few passages of Aramaic script. So, of course the BIBLE Scripture itself gets 5 stars. I gave this edition 3 stars because of the LARGE "MacArthur" printed before the Study Bible title on the spine, the pronounced authorship credit on the title page and voluminous personal doctrine, opinions and interpretations. I take minor issue with this edition because the Bible is the Holy Bible, There is no doubt that the New Kings James Version is a good translation from the original Hebrew, Greek and the few passages of Aramaic script. So, of course the BIBLE Scripture itself gets 5 stars. I gave this edition 3 stars because of the LARGE "MacArthur" printed before the Study Bible title on the spine, the pronounced authorship credit on the title page and voluminous personal doctrine, opinions and interpretations. I take minor issue with this edition because the Bible is the Holy Bible, authored by God, with the Divine Holy Spirit's inspiration to the individual book writers... NOT written by or inspired by MacArthur. His name is not only printed first in large type on the binding, suggesting authorship credit (MacArthur's Study Bible) but he also asserts direct and specific "authorship and general editing" on the title page. Worse yet, in both instances his personal name is printed in LARGER, more impressive print than the title name Bible. Some may point out that, as with many other Bible editions, the use of MacArthur's name was necessary to identify his study guide notes. In this, I agree: then this Bible could have been titled "Study BIBLE" (large print), "Notes by MacArthur" (smaller print.) I take issue, although admittedly minor, with all Bible editions placing any proper name before and/or in larger type than the word BIBLE... ie... Thompson's Chain Reference Bible (which I also use.) Why not, "A Chain Reference BIBLE", "Reference Guide by Thompson"? Even my favorite study Bible, The Archaeological Study Bible, has the study theme in larger, fancier print than the word Bible. This may seem petty, but we are talking about GOD'S Holy Word! MacArthur's obvious claims to authorship made a negative first impression on me, which gave me pause to consider the motives and inspiration of the study notes. Reading the notes has proved caution was warranted in some instances. Not only do I sense that personal interpretations, doctrines and comments seem to be re-assigning meaning to much of the scripture, but also I found many pages of this rendition have more comments than Bible verses. The Bible stands "flawless" and doctrinally sound on its own, as it was originally inspired. It does not need to be re-written or assigned a doctrine. That's not to say that those called to teach through study guides, books, etc... and therein offer what is clearly stated as their personal insights, direction and opinions are not important and valuable. Of course they are! It is when those views are possibly presented as an authoritative addendum to God's Holy Word that we should become concerned. Scripture instructs us not to "judge" one another but charges us with the discipline of discernment. It can be a fine line, and one I do not wish to cross. So, I offer these observations, not in judgment of the subject edition, but as thoughts possibly worthy of review, prayer and consideration. I do use my MacArthur and humbly suggest others use this edition,(with a cautious eye and much prayer for discernment concerning the notes,) as a beautifully bound Bible in the now accurate NKJV translation... and give God all of the glory and credit of authorship!

    God has blessed Pastor John MacArthur with an ability to study His Word and break it down and apply it. There are so many people out there who pick and choose parts of the Bible they like and don't like. But, John MacArthur (and others like him) do their best to teach "the whole counsel" of the Word of God. In a day where so few know or even understand the words of Jesus and the message He preached, Pastor John MacArthur is one of few teaching the practical, applicable message of Jesus Christ or God has blessed Pastor John MacArthur with an ability to study His Word and break it down and apply it.

    John MacArthur's Study Bible in the New King James is the best one I have owned. It is now my number one read and resource for all things in this world and beyond. There are more than 20,000 notes referencing most of the verses in the entire Bible. This gives clarity and perspective to the Bible. I listen to John's podcasts on my ipod when going for long walks.

    This is probably THE BEST study Bible out there! I got it for Christmas, and can't stop reading it!

    As one who believes that Pastor MacArthur is one of the finest Bible expositors in our day, I bought copies of this study Bible for my entire family. My only regret was that at the time it was only in the NKJV, and I prefer the NASB, which they have now come out with.

    Having already become an avid Bible reader a few years before, I felt the need to dig deeper and to find some help with putting it all together and with understanding some of those more mysterious passages. John MacArthur was already on my radar due to his sermon and Bible teaching radio program "Grace to You." I'd also read a few of MacArthur's books and found them very helpful in developing the application part of my faith in Jesus.

Great footnotes! The extra information was feast for me. I read and reread over several years. Just for the record though, I do generally caution people not to take anyone's footnotes as being as authoritative as the scriptures themselves! Study Bibles, in general, are there to help you but shouldn't become your sole source of theological understanding or personal application. In addition to reading scripture for yourself with the help of Holy Spirit, seek out various opinions if the passage seems difficult to discern, then come to your own conclusion. To sum up, John MacArthur is very useful, but I don't always agree with his take on passage, as would be so with any commentary author or study Bible editor.

    I purchased this bible for my husband. The notes are very helpful in referencing. However I came across Luke 16. Above verse 19 a title. The parable of the Rich man and Lazarus. I am not a bible scholar but I was taught that is NOT a parable. I spoke with current pastor, old pastor another Baptist pastor and I searched many other study bibles I have (Ryrie, the Jeremiah, life application) and none of them label that a parable. Jesus specifically names Lazarus. This being said I am now concerned I purchased this bible for my husband. The notes are very helpful in referencing. However I came across Luke 16.

I asked our Assistant Pastor about the Bible as well and he also doesn’t agree with some of his interpretations. I should have asked before I purchased it for him. It is up to us to use discernment. I just thought I would mention what I ran across. We should always take the word of God as authority over any notes , however notes and headings which can aid are also able to confuse if they are not correct. Perhaps it was a misprint.

    It is an amazing book and even though I show that today I finished reading it, I will never stop. I did appreciate the MacArthur version of this Study Bible. I also read many Bible Commentaries as I was going through each book and MacArthur aligned with many of the scholars. I have other Study Bibles, but I prefer this one.

    2/10/09 Matthew 1:1-17 Level One: 1)What is contained in this passage?-The geneology of Jesus Christ. 2)Who are some of the "important" people in Jesus' geneology?-To the Jews of the time, Jesus's most famous relatives included Abraham, David, and Solomon. 3)Who were the three Gentiles in Jesus's family?-Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth were the three Gentiles in Jesus's family. Level Two: 1)What was the significance of Matthew listing these Gentile women in Jesus's geneology?-The significance was to signify tha 2/10/09 Matthew 1:1-17 Level One: 1)What is contained in this passage?-The geneology of Jesus Christ. 2)Who are some of the "important" people in Jesus' geneology?-To the Jews of the time, Jesus's most famous relatives included Abraham, David, and Solomon. 3)Who were the three Gentiles in Jesus's family?-Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth were the three Gentiles in Jesus's family. Level Two: 1)What was the significance of Matthew listing these Gentile women in Jesus's geneology?-The significance was to signify that Jesus was not just the Messiah and King of the Jews, but that He was cosmopolitan, with blood from all different peoples in His veins, meaning that He came for the Gentiles as well as the Jews. It was also written to stress to the Jews of the time that some of their heros, David and Solomon, were not pure Jews (four generations back), in fact, Solomon wasn't even half Jewish. Thus, their belief that one had to be "pure" that is, purely Jewish, to recieve the promise of God was false. 2)What is the reason for this geneology in the beginning of the new testament?-I believe that Matthew wrote this before anything else to give background into who Jesus is and where He came from. As I heard last night in Perspectives, a missionary had gone to West Africa and, after attempting for a time to get the natives interested in Jesus they finally came to Matthew 1:1-17 and loved it. Although he, in a western I-am-my-own-person attitude didn't understand their fascination, they explained that they now knew who Jesus was, because they could look back into the old testament and see his ancestors and family. Level Three: 1)Do you believe that differing perspectives can alter the way certain passages, like this one, are taken and, thus, alter the way Jesus Christ and His ministry and life are seen?-Yes, I do believe that differing worldviews and thought patterns can alter the way Jesus and even this geneology, a seemingly simple, boring passage are taken by different people.
