My Thoughts On The Book:  This Bible, The Compass Study Bible is one of the easiest Bibles I have found to read and use. This Bible would be a wonderful choice for a new Christian because the characters were so lifelike.  It was more than just words on a page it came to life right before my eyes.  Using the Voice translation was very exciting.  Since the Christmas holidays were upcoming I chose to focus on both Luke and Matthew.  I actually used the Bible to prepare a sermon in Matthew.  I was so excited to read aloud from this Bible and deliver the message I prepared with the help of The Compass Bible.  I also did a Study for my church in Joshua and felt the story in chapter 22 was more like a wonderful piece of narrative and so alive.  There were some amazing features to use,  The Road Map to God's Promises was very helpful.  There was a definite break between the Old and New Testaments where I found wonderful nuggets like, "The New Covenant" and "The Titles of Jesus". There was also a topical guide to the notes as well as to the Scriptures.  I thnk my favorite section was a 365 Day reading Guide and a guide that takes the reader on a 40-Day retreat with Jesus. I am delighted to have this book to add to my developing collection of study Bibles.  I think this Bible would make a wonderful gift for the holidays and if you have someone you need a special gift for, this is the perfect choice.
