I didn't know much about John MacArthur except that he was Calvinist, so I was skeptical when a friend gave me this Bible. I knew that I would disagree with some of his theology. But this study Bible gives a lot more than just theological notes. What I really lacked was historical context for confusing passages, and that is a strength of this study Bible.

I often read a $2 NKJV that has 5 years of my underlines and scribblings, but I have several study Bibles, and after reviewing all of them on certain Scriptures, I am pretty sure this one has had the clearest book introductions and most helpful in-text commentary.

On ESV:
I can also say that the ESV probably cannot be beaten for combining readability and a straightforward translation. The only thing that keeps me in the NKJV is those moments when the KJV/NKJV literally translates a Hebraism or idiom, whereas any modern version interprets it for you, leaving slightly less dirt in which to dig for buried treasure.
