The NKJV STUDY BIBLE FOR KIDS published by  THOMAS “TOMMY” NELSON is presented specifically for children ages 8-12 (note: I do not particularly care for the word “Kids”.)  A New King James Bible translation with study notes, it is unique because of the presentation of color and the commentary which targets young people.

 I like the study emphasis that are presented in the “Spotlight”  sections that encourage the reader to: Read it, Get it, Live it. There are also text blocks that present: “Epic Ideas”  and calls to “Action.” All of the text box / commentaries have a movie theme icon assocated with it even the “In Focus” text blocks, which are short one or two sentence statements.

As far as Bibles go, for young men and women it is good. The commentaries are written so as to not overwhelm the reader with college level terms but not insulting to the mind of a 14 year old, though the target reader is 8-12. The dictionary -concordance in the back of the book has words in it that shed light as to how to pronounce many of the names found in the Bible.  Also note worthy, the introduction to each book is brief, to the point and easy to grasp.

This is a good starter Bible and worth purchasing.    - - written by Marsha L F Randolph
