I really can't say I support any Study Bibles either. I have a Thompson chain, but that is not exactly a Study Bible, more of a magnum reference Bible.

I also have a Schofield, but not so much for the study feature, but I like the way he has the little sub-titles throughout the text, it makes things so much easier to find.

Lately I have been using my Cambridge text only Bible, and really enjoying the lack of all the clutter that you usually find in most Bibles. Now if they had just left off that self pronouncing word feature, you couldn't get any better.

I have heard of the TBN. I watch it occasionaly. They own this theme park called "The Holy Land Experience" which is to me just a gratuitous money scheme that plays on people's desires to be "outwardly/actively/physically religious", much the same manner as the Catholic Church. I always suspect that Christian TV station owners are hypocrites in the business to find a niche in a smallish market and get rich quick, much like "Christian" bands nowadays.

But you mentioned the price of the Bible. It also comes with two other pretty thick books, one of which is an Encyclopaedia of Bible Prophecy, so 100 dollars isn't exactly gouging folks, but I would imagine that you're right, in that he's not in the Christian author game just to evangelize: money is a factor.

No $100.00 is not a lot to pay for a Bible these days. I just recently paid $80.00, for my plain text Cambridge. It has nothing but Bible text, no maps, no concordance, zero, zilch, nothing.

I would love to have a Goatskin bound Cambridge Concord Refrence , but that is just a little out of my bounds @ $200.00. Of course you could get a Cambridge Lectern KJV for around $500.00, so $100.00 no not much.

I watch some things on TBN sometimes also, but you have to take care what you watch.

This is true for all networks, I suppose.

Especially secular ones.
