Awesome Bible - Review by JosephThis Bible is awesome! It has plenty of notes and references. The binding is strong and flexable and comes with lambskin. The KJVSTORE will do a great job putting your name on the outside cover. (Posted on 5/14/15)
Excellent Product - Review by James GreenUnlike my pentacostal fellow review, I have not found anything so far that I would challenge with the notes. I especially admire the notes concerning "The Gospel" of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4.
No works just pure "Grace". Highly recommend this Common Man's Bible for true serious believers in the Faith. Great price as well for Lambskin. (Posted on 7/22/15)
Great Commentary Best Bible You need to Own this. - Review by edwardThis book has helped me get organized it tells the truth. Common mans reference has plenty of room for your own notes.The lamb skin is nicer than all my church bibles for real. Save your money buying books that defend the Kjv just get this one bible if defends the kjv just fine. You could do whole sermons on just the notes before the books start. The section to paul gives you great insight into the truths of dispensations. Over all I know this bible beats out anything ive ever laid eyes on. Ill keep looking for a better bible because I love studying it. Its a sad shame there isnt other bibles like this one. My Old Scofield and Henery Morris Collect dust . David Hoffman didnt write these notes just organized them. Please go to David Hoffman preaching type it into google and listen to this man of God before you judge him. He is the best preacher I have ever heard. (Posted on 8/28/15)

Beautiful Bible - Interesting Notes - Review by GayleThis KJV Bible is very well made and should last a lifetime. It has a sewn binding and the lambskin leather is buttery soft. In fact, it's almost too soft, if that's possible. It lays very flat right out of the box and drapes over the hand when standing to read, preach, or teach. I would like the text to be larger with less margin on the sides, but that's obviously my personal preference. I would like to see "Wide Margin" in the title for this bible because it's definitely a wide margin bible and looks much like other wide margin printings with respect to page layout and font size. I find the introductions and notes a little hard to see and feel like I need magnifying glasses to prevent eye strain. I don't own any, so I need to buy a pair for reading the Common Man's Bible. I am guessing the font to be 8.5 for the Text, and 6.5 for the notes.
Some of Brother Hoffman's notes are unusual and thought provoking, for sure. I think the reader just needs to remember that his notes are simply that - HIS notes. He provides many scripture references to support his statements, and I rather like his sometimes humorous take. For example, his note for Amos 6:4 reads, "These beds were used as a coach potato to recline while eating (Esther 1:6; Song. 1:12)." At first, I thought he had misspelled the word "couch." But then I found his spelling in the Urban Dictionary. Both "couch potato" and "coach potato" mean the same thing, by the way.
There are 12 full-color maps on heavy stock, and I find them to be quite useful. I really like the inclusion of 20 lined pages at the back for personal notes. Also, there are a lot of cross references in the center column between two columns of Text.
When studying at home, I also use my laptop that has the Dake Bible Reference software on it. I have the Dake software open, as well as a free, on-line resource called the Blue Letter Bible, which gives me the Strong's Greek and Hebrew Concordances with audible pronunciation. I highly recommend this free resource as a value-add to your bible study sessions.
In closing, the Common Man's Reference Bible is a beautifully crafted Bible that I use daily for my home study. However, the Bible I carry with me is the Defined King James Bible. (Posted on 3/6/16)
