NKJV APPLY THE WORD STUDY BIBLE Thomas Nelson Publisher

Never judge a Bible by its’ cover not even the wonderful graphics found on the NKJV APPLY THE WORD STUDY BIBLE. There are some basic things that need to be examined before purchasing a Study Bible.
Of course the first thing is the translation and then the size of the font. (If the print is to small you will not be able to read it.) The King James, the New King James and the New International Version are three common translations, most people have one of these three.
When purchasing a study Bible it is important to understand the focus of the commentaries and supplementary information. The NKJV APPLY THE WORD STUDY BIBLE is as it presents itself to be according to the title and the pictures and then some.
I am amazed at the amount of information, commentary, words for thought and study found in the NKJV APPLY THE WORD STUDY BIBLE.

I really do not know how to describe this Bible so that you will appreciate its’ content. It is great for: personal study; if you are a Small Group Leader or teacher it is excellent to use to when planing lessons; I believe you can learn from just reading the topical commentaries.

For those who read my reviews you realize by now that I love God’s word and I am a Bible junkie! With the NKJV APPLY THE WORD STUDY BIBLE Thomas Nelson has released my new favorite Bible and set the margin very high for any other Bible, regardless of the translation. I love it and you will too; I recommend this book. xxx Marsha L F Randolph

FOOTNOTE: The notes are so interesting, I am going to treat them as a daily devotional.

AN AMISH YEAR by Beth Wiseman


It has been a long time since I have read a novel in which I wanted to read more books by the same author. After reading AN AMISH YEAR I can’t wait to discover more books by Beth Wiseman; I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
AN AMISH YEAR is four short stories ‘novellas’ with characters that live the simple life of faith and relationships not complicated by the superficial priorities of world. “Rooted In Love,” “A Love for Irma Rose,” “Patchwork Perfect,” and “When Christmas Comes Again” are the four short stories found in AN AMISH YEAR. The storyline in each novella read was believable and pleasant to read.
One of the reasons I stopped reading novels was because of the unnecessary sexual activity or violence presented.
AN AMISH YEAR is perfect for the weekend reader, 393 pages divided by four stories equals one story a day. Since this is my first book based on the Amish lifestyle I don’t have much to compare it with however, in the beginning of the book there is a glossary of the the Lancaster County Amish Words used in the book (not that many). AND there are some discussion questions at the end of each story- I guess this would be good if you are part of a book club. Did I mention there are some recipes in the back of the book?

One of the things I have determined in the year 2016 is to read more and watch less television if I can find more books like this I will not have a problem achieving my goal. I recommend this book. Xxx MARSHA L F RANDOLPH
