If you are a language student this is a perfect place to start. It gives you all the basic texts and reference materials you need to get started.

Good translation, easy to read. Do realize this was done by reformed scholars so it tends towards a reformed/calvinistic translation of certain passages. Not a huge issue but should be remembered in your reading and use.

I like this translation at times at other times I don't, but what's new? It's a translation it will never be perfect (big shock, I'm looking at you KJV only people). It is an easy read but you lose some of the subtitles of the Greek and hebrew texts in the dynamics of the translation, but that is what makes it an easy read. Don't do your theology exegesis with it (or any english text for that matter) but still a good bible.

Its Systematic, I haven't read any other systematic theologies and comparatively I've been told this is an easy read but it sure is slow either way. He can be quite repetitive but he does a good Job presenting the views whether you agree or not.

Not a perfect Grammar, but it is easy to understand and well organized. Like I said the grammar isn't perfect but well done over all. His examples are especially lacking in quality but would still recommend. Great first grammar.

Love this, very litteral and helps reveal the underling Hebrew text. Helps reveal some of the plays on words and poetic nature the authors intended that more dynamic translations lose on account of their readability. I highly recommend this text.

Very helpful for understanding definitions and the semantic range of a word. Would be helpful if when searching a word from James 4:1, lets say, instead of opening the main section of the given word, that instead it opened it under how it is used in that context.

This module is a great price for these four books. Robertson is the best NT Greek Grammar and Burton's book is also very helpful.
