KJV KNOW THE WORD STUDY BIBLE Published by Thomas Nelson
When I recieved the KJV KNOW THE WORD STUDY BIBLE I was just beginning a study of the book Song of Solomon. I am using THE KING JAMES STUDY BIBLE - Full Color Edition (also published by Thomas Nelson) I thought this would be a great opportunity to compare and contrast. I recently decided to start reading the KJV of the Bible more than others.
The KJV KNOW THE WORD STUDY BIBLE does not have as in depth introduction as my Bible does. Nor does the introductory discussion cover as broad a spectrum of interpretations to the book of Solomon but this is a good thing. Sometimes all you need is a book over view. Unlike my Bible the KJV KNOW THE WORD STUDY BIBLE is light on the graphics and heavy on commentary.
This Bible is actually more like other study Bibles I have it helps direct the reader through the book. Reading this Bible will help the person apply the word to his or her life. The purpose of THE KJV KNOW THE WORD STUDY BIBLE is to help the reader “gain a greater understanding of the Bible - book by book, verse by verse, topic by topic” I think this is accomplished. Of course there are maps and there is a concordance that most Bibles include for reference and it has a concordance all in the back of the book.
This is a great Bible for someone who has never purchased a Study Bible. — written by Marsha L F Randolph
