First things first I am reviewing the NKJV STUDY BIBLE - Full Color Edition. There are so many Bibles out there and so many New King James and NKJ Bibles available that you might become overwhelmed by the options.
The next point I must make is that I do like this Bible and will be using it as my primary study Bible.
I have read the King James and the New King James Bible on numerous occasions as well as other translations therefore I decided to focus attention on evaluating the “study” aspects of this Bible.
My chief complaint: As modern as the NKJV STUDY BIBLE - Full Color Edition’s cover was and as impressive as the 2,360 pages are (compared to my old NKJV Bible with 1,763) I want bigger letters. I would like to find a Bible that has a font that my eyes can appreciate; the good news is the type of font used does help.
I don’t know if I can agree 100% with some of the commentaries / clarifications of verses written however that is not to say that I am right. Despite the credentials of the contributors occasionally one denomination may not agree fully with how a particular verse is explained. Which is why it is always best for a person to read the Bible at least twice prior to reading any type of commentary allowing the Holy Spirit to reveal Truths.
Despite those the font size and the commentaries that I am not sure of this is a great Bible (you really cannot go wrong with a New King James Bible). The cultural notes, the cross-references, charts, time-lines and so forth all make the NKJV STUDY BIBLE a worth while purchase. I recommend this Bible. Marsha L Randolph
