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.
