Bibles are back! In this world of: Aps, on-line viewing, big screen on church walls, and audio versions that allow you to access Scripture, it is great to get a nice big fat old fashioned Bible. Zondervan publishing has released NKJV FAITHLIFE ILLUSTRATED STUDY BIBLE for those who not only want to read the Bible but study the 66 books.

“The Faithlife Illustrated Study Bible” helps remove the obstacles to understanding the Bible, so that people with any level of knowledge and experience can pursue an enriching study of Scripture.” (Editors Preface paragraph 3)

That is what a ‘study Bible’ should do and that is what the NKJV FAITHLIFE ILLUSTRATED STUDY BIBLE does. What I like about this Bible is the presentation of timelines, somehow they make more sense to me than I have found in other Bibles. Also the family trees and graphics of various structures are easy to examine and understand. The space dedicated to the various illustrations in this illustrated study Bible is what makes it worth the investment.

Years ago, when I first started reading Scripture, I did not want a Bible with commentary; they were not called ‘study’ Bibles back then. Study Bibles have come a long way and the NKJV FAITHLIFE ILLUSTRATED STUDY BIBLE is something I would recommend to a person who has never read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation before.

I am not going to say this is my new favorite as I have said with some reviews but this one is definately a keeper and a go to reference tool as I study God’s word.
