As a Bible student, I am required to read a book of the Bible two and three times before proceeding with a lesson. Now this can be quite tedious if, for instance I have only two months to read the entire Old Testament. So, I've come up with a for study: read the complete text first, then review the text using the Kwikscan Bible. It's been a great help. I would not recommend using this Bible for one's personal devotional time--God uses the whole Bible to speak to us--but for a quick review of a text for test or sermon preparation (as another reviewer stated) this Bible may come in handy. Apparently, the Kwikscan Bible is now out of print. I'd recommend purchasing a used copy if you can get your hands on one.
