The Spurgeon Study Bible is pretty impressive. The hardcover, tan and brown binding for the edition that I have is very nice to look at and comfortable to hold. I really like that this Bible includes two ribbon place markers. That is very handy.
I enjoy reading the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) interpretation and am happy that this is the interpretation used for this Bible. The font is a nice size and I do not have to squint or strain in order to read God’s word.
Charles Spurgeon’s notes are spread throughout the Bible as footnotes at the bottom of the pages, with occasional breakout quotes printed in a script font. There are also illustration break out sections spread throughout the pages. These are simply more of Charles Spurgeon’s thoughts on particular verses. I like the way these notes and thoughts give me a bit more insight into particular areas of the Bible.
There are also twenty lost sermons from Charles Spurgeon included throughout this Bible. These are shown in his handwriting and also printed out on the facing page for easy reading. The sermons are in outline form.
All in all a good, solid addition to the CSB Bible collection and of particular interest to those who enjoy the works of Charles Spurgeon.
I received a complimentary copy of this Bible. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
