I really enjoy the format in Ridges' scripture study books over the format in other study guides. He includes the KJV, any JST that has changes, and commentary. If there are a lot of pronouns (And they took him. And he said unto him. . . ) Ridges identifies who is doing what. (Admit it, there are times you read a few verses and get lost as to who is talking to whom because only pronouns are used rather than names or group identifiers). He offers explanations for holidays and customs, but there are times there could be more information given that would help the reader understand the "Jewish" mindset and lifestyle of the early disciples and apostles. I find Ridges' study guides a valuable asset when studying the scriptures.
