This Bible translation is a great tool for deep study, especially with the 95,000 cross-references that it provides on this Bible. It is very accurate, and with the update, it is very readable. To me, it surpassed the NASB 95, ESV, NKJV, and the MEV Bibles for readability. This translation got me excited to read more than what I already have. It is still not as readable as the HCSB, but it is closer than the other translations as I mentioned above.
