I found when reading the Bible books of Lamentations, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus that usually there was an insight next to the sections in Scripture I read (usually one to three insights per page). At first I thought every single portion of Scripture was going to be covered but then I noticed a small gap where some parts of the Scriptures were not commented on in the margins. I think there was a comment for most of the Scriptures I read. Some of the people whose thoughts are shared I think can be considered scholars while others may be considered authors and/or thinkers.
Before I read this Bible I was kind of leery about reading quotes from others because to me they recently started to seem like opinions and might not always be right. My congregation leader teaches us we should be open to reading what other thinkers think so I felt better about it later. I read the article from N.T. Wright "What The Whole World Is Waiting For" and was glad to read about the new heaven and new earth that Isaiah prophesied. It seemed really Greek-focused in the places of this Bible I read but it may have been more Hebrew-focused in other places that I didn't come across.
I liked that there were two ribbon markers in the Bible, and that they were two different colors, because it helped me keep my place of where I read in the Old Testament and the New Testament.
I think this would be a great Bible for Christian teachers of the Word since they may be able to dig deeper into the insights that are given from the interpreters or use the insights as they are given in some ways in their sermons sometimes. It think it will also be a great Bible for people that like to know what other well-known Bible thinkers who have deeply studied the Word thought about different Scriptures.
