I’ve had my current Bible since I was a freshman in high school…that was nearly 2 decades ago. But, like an old, trusty, reliable friend, I just couldn’t bear to replace it. The handwritten notes and underlined verses reminded me of special moments in my life, and helped to carry me through the difficult times.
But, lately, I have been considering getting a new, fresh Bible to write all new notes and look at passages from the perspective of this stage of life. Plus, the book of Micah fell out…
I couldn’t resist checking out this NKJV Study Bible from Thomas Nelson. First of all, the cover colors on this Bible are beautiful. The teal and dark blue on the imitation leather cover are one of my favorite color combinations (and my 8 year old daughter even asked me to buy a copy of this Bible for her because she loves the colors so much.) There are a lot of really great features in this Bible to help you study and get a deeper understanding of the Word.
Some of the information I ran across include: a chart showing the types of Jewish calendars as compared with our calendar, five pages of Strongs words (word studies from the original Hebrew and Greek), as well as many maps, timelines, charts, articles, and tons of commentary on each page.
The only thing I wish this Bible had was red letters for when Jesus spoke. That was the only thing I didn’t love.
As a whole, though, this Bible offers a lot of information that can help both the new believer and the seasoned believer to have a better understanding of God’s Word. I loved all the information it packed in, and I look forward to this Bible being one that I can use for many more years to come.
