AMERICAN WOMAN'S BIBLE - NKJV published by Thomas Nelson

OMM! If ever there was a reason for a Bible junkie to buy another Bible the AMERICAN WOMAN’S BIBLE - NKJV is as good a reason as others. I received deliver of the NKJV AMERICAN WOMAN’S BIBLE - Women, Godly Virtues, and the Making of America earlier than expected but when I opened the box and saw it I canceled all of my plans just so I could at least flip through some of the pages.

The Bible is HIS-story, the AMERICAN WOMAN’S BIBLE is history as it relates to women the combination of the two makes a great study.

  • Throughout the Bible there are inserts which discuss America’s history. The chapter/topics are: 
  • Women of Early America- Colonial Times Until the Revolutionary War
  • Women of the American Revolution - The Nation is Born
  • Women of the Civil War - The Abolition of Slavery
  • Women of World War I - The Great War
  • Women of World Wart II - The Nation Unites
  • American Women of the Baby Boomer Era - Emergence of a New America
  • Women of the Civil Rights Movement - Laying New Foundation Stones
  • Women of America After September 11, 2001 - The Nation Stands Still


There are 70 biographies of women and over 150 quotes from people in American History.

This is a New King James Bible. The beginning of each book contains the author, date, setting, theme and insights. As with many Bibles cross references and translation notes are  present- bottom right of each page. The Font is a good is easy to read. In addition the value based commentary on specific verses are based on the following topics: Bravery, Challenge, Commitment, Compassion Concern, Courage, Creativity, Dedication, Devotion, Dignity, Diligence, Duty, Faith, Faithfulness, Forgiveness, Generosity Honor, Hope, Hopefulness, Hospitality, Humility, Influence, Inspiration, Integrity, Joyfulness, Justice, Kindheartedness, Kindness Knowledge, Leadership, Love, Loyalty, Mercy, Obedience, Perseverance, Persistence, Poise, Prayerfulness, Resourcefulness, Righteousness Sacrifice, Service, Steadfastness, Strength, Submission, Sympathy, Teaching, Testing, Thankfulness, Trials, Trust, Truth Unknown, Victory, Wisdom and  Worship.

If Thomas Nelson continues to produce Bibles that are true to God’s word and include such information as what is found in the AMERICAN WOMAN’S BIBLE all I can say is clean off the bookshelf! I recommend you purchase this Bible not only because it is a NKJV (my favorite translation) but is shares such a great history of American women.

NKJV STUDY BIBLE- PERSONAL SIZE


There was a time in which everyone carried a Bible to church and then many churches started showing the Bible verses on a big screen. Today many people have a Bible as an application on their cell phone or they bring a tablet or ipad to church. I have a Bible on my cell phone, lap top and even on the tablet I owned before it died. BUT my favorite Bibles I have in print form including the NKJV STUDY BIBLE published by Thomas Nelson. Last year I started carrying this very thick Bible to church with me.

It is important that we get into the habit of reading and studying the Bible the old fashioned way.  In the event that there is no internet or electricity you can still read the Word. In addition it is good when to personalize the Word with your own notes, underlines and highlights that you can review later.

Since I already have a NKJV STUDY BIBLE to those who do not appreciate owning a print Bible it does not make sense to want to review the NKJV STUDY BIBLE - PERSONAL SIZE.  To a Bible junkie (there are a lot of us out there) you can never own to many Bibles and every Bible has a purpose. For me I would prefer to be able to throw my NKJV Bible in my purse taking it with me where ever I go: church, doctors’ office, vacation, or visiting someone who may need to hear the word.

The NKJV STUDY BIBLE -PERSONAL SIZE is like its’ standard size Bible a ‘complete resource for studying God’s word” only smaller. It has the same number of pages thus every chapter and every verse page are the same. Maps, images and other inserts are in color just as the standard sized Bible. The two differences are the size though it is almost the same thickness and the font size. The font is readable with my glasses on. In terms of fitting in my purse- it does- I carry a medium size purse.

I own pocket sized Bibles this one is considerably bigger (5 1/4x8x 2); it is ‘personal’ Sized not pocket sized.  Of course I recommend this Bible.
