Book Review: NKJV Study Bible

_225_350_Book.1385.cover
NKJV Study Bible
Thomas Nelson Publishers

This is a Bible dictionary, Bible atlas, Bible handbook, and complete NKJV Bible all in one handy volume! Full color maps are featured in most books of the Bible that show where events were happening in that book. References to Greek and Hebrew word origins in Strong’s concordance are accompanied by a brief word study of that entry. Brief insight into most verses plus in-depth discussions of key concepts fill the lower half of each page with meaty information.

Last month we started a new study on Wednesday nights at my church where we will be reading through the book of Isaiah verse by verse and chapter by chapter from beginning to end. Can I tell you how excited I am to think of bringing this along for the next two years or so that we’ll be digging in deep on one of my favorite books of the Bible?!

One of the things I appreciate about this Bible is that it refers to Israel as “The Holy Land” on historic maps. I wish all my Bibles had this, especially since Jesus himself referred to the region as Israel in his day. (See Luke 4:25)

My other personal favorite is reading the BIBLE TIMES & CULTURE NOTES that help me understand the context of the era various events took place in. These colorful boxes also have photographs of archaeological finds to help bring the Bible to life.

Here is what the publisher shares about this amazing new study Bible:
The NKJV Study Bible, the most comprehensive study Bible available, now in a full-color edition with added features! The acclaimed NKJV Study Bible is the most complete study system for all who desire accurate study in God’s Word. The Second Edition includes more features to make it the best all-purpose study Bible. Using the trusted New King James Version, The NKJV Study Bible has “the mind of a scholar and the heart of a pastor.” Nelson’s skilled team of scholars has produced the system to reach for when study in God’s Word is the goal.

Features include:

NEW attractive full-color page design
NEW stunning Bible-land photos and graphics
NEW in-text maps and charts
