 which study Bible to buy?

I am looking to get more in depth into the scriptures with a study Bible. I currently study the NASB. My church uses the ESV and a friend who I meet with uses the ESV study bible. I'm looking for help deciding which study bible to buy since there are differences between them in doctrinal views. Thank you saints

I use the Thompson Chain Reference KJB. Ran me about $70.00 but it's worth every penny.

While I am a "KJV-Preferred" man, I bought a Reformation Study Bible (ESV) from Ligonier Ministries (RC Sproul) about 8 months ago... and I absolutely LOVE it. It's great for helping you to learn and see God's sovereign hand throughout the Bible.

I know I know... I used to argue on here against reformed theology. What can I say? God has a way of revealing Himself and changing people! I am now very much "reformed".

 Re:

I've got a KJV-NLT parallel translation that I love to snuggle up with. I'll minister from it too, giving the faithful KJV rendering and then the easily-colloquilized NLT verse, which I find safely, accurately and dynamically captures the core of the sleepy Jacobean text.

Great resource.

Ya, I'm a softie, what can I say. My wife will tell you. Got to humble ourselves somehow, right? And I'm a big crybaby too.

I slept with my bible in the bed last night with my hand on it. We must not fall from our first love, the scriptures are either exceedingly precious to us or they are a necessary duty. I am currently using the new NIV 2011 translation and am finding it very edifying and readable. It only was $30 for a great quality bible that I hope to use over at least the next 1-2 years.

 Re:

Thompson Chain Reference is one of the best. It seems to be non-sectarian. Love it!
