The Complete Jewish Study Bible

In one of the bible studies I wrote last year, I remember looking through several different versions of the bible to see the names of God in Jewish and its meaning in English. 
And one version I came across A LOT was the Complete Jewish Bible (CJB). 
This version tends to use a lot of the original Hebrew words, which is amazing for the layperson who does not speak or read Hebrew, it helps them to be able to learn some words.

(See the Hebrew word for Genesis is B'resheet, didn't even know that!)

This one I like. It's hardcover, which I personally like all of my bibles to be hardcover. 

I also like that there are study notes and helpful tips to understand what the Jewish culture was like in each era.

(In this short article, it explains the name the Elohim and the significance behind it and its use)

 It has two marker ribbons as well, which is good when cross referencing.

I give this book 2 thumbs up! I definitely recommend, probably not for the new believer because there is a lot of Hebrew wording, that would easily be confusing or hard to understand without a second bible open. I do think this bible is best used for study and not everyday reading until you are comfortable with it. 

I do personally use it when I cross reference and study.

{FYI: I did receive this book from the publisher in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}
