I have multiple Bibles and I love it. I use different translations when I study and love using different Bibles for different purposes. So when I had the opportunity to review the new Tony Evans Study Bible, I immediately said yes! I had a feeling my husband would love it…and turns out I was right!
The Tony Evans Study Bible was written by Tony Evans, and adapted from 50 years of his teachings, sermons, and writings. Tony has said it is the culmination of a decade’s worth of researching and writing; it’s a true labor of love. The features are strategically placed alongside the biblical text to explain God’s Word in a fresh way.
“Paying attention to context is extremely important if you want to accurately understand what the Bible is saying…If you don’t pay attention to the context, you are in danger of trying to make the Bible say something that it doesn’t actually say.”

It looks like a beautiful and practical Bible. Although I’m not a religious scholar, I think he’s right about the context in regards to the Bible. I have heard many people quote the Bible, but I sometimes think that they are distorting what it means.
