The study/commentary is extremely user friendly - all the additional information is on the same pages as the bible text.
It is written in such a way that encourages the reader to explore more, as it brings the Word to life and give better background information on the texts. It is very helpful for better understanding of the background with easy language and great application. Plenty of maps and biography boxes help to better 'ground' the reader in the verses.
Footnotes are extremely useful, breaking down the message, with excellent historical background information to the word, the people, and each book of the Bible.
