Book Review - NKJV Apply the Word Study Bible
NKJV Apply the Word Study Bible is published by Thomas Nelson.
For those who love the NKJV, this is a Bible to own. It reminds me a lot of my nearly 30 year old copy of the NIV Study Bible.
I have the hard covered version. A lot of hardback Bibles fall apart after multiple uses. I am hoping this one lasts a long, long time. It appears to be of great quality.
What's inside is better. The full Bible in the New King James Version is in there - New Testament and the Old. Why do I mention that? It is because many new readers of the Bible grab a New Testament and think that's all there is to it. It is not.
Each book of the Bible is prefaced with a summary and a bit of history. In the preface to Genesis, we read that "The word genesis means 'origin'". Of course, Genesis begins with telling us how the world was created - our origins, if you will.
Throughout this study version are application notes, information concerning people and places, charts, tables, and maps. What is a study Bible without maps? The maps at the back of the book are colored and detailed, helping the reader to fully understand what was going on where.
Included with this Bible is a free download of maps and study guides. TheNKJVBible.com has videos, reading plans, and other study resources available.
The Bible is not a hard book to study these days - and, with prayer, never was. I really like this study Bible and find it refreshing to have it.
