NKJV Study Bible, by Thomas Nelson Publishers (book review)
General Editor: Earl D. Radmacher, Th. D. was on staff at Western Seminary, and passed away on December 8, 2014.
Old Testament Editor: Ronald B. Allen, Th. D., is currently the Senior Professor of Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary.
New Testament Editor: H. Wayne House, Th. D., J. D. is the Distinguished Research Professor of Theology, Law, and Culture at Faith Evangelical College and Seminary, and President of Christian Perspective International.
Other contributors in the first edition are numerous, and many have titles following their names.
There are a number of articles strategically placed throughout this study Bible, and there is a nice article index located in the opening pages. Typically, the articles long enough to cover the subject and answer key questions, but brief enough so as to not require a lot of page space.
Beginning on page xxvii is a list of words for study. It goes without saying that the list is not all-inclusive. And while it is only five pages long, the words for studies have a Strong's concordance reference, as well as a page number index.
The concordance is a decent 195 pages long. While it does not contain Hebrew or Greek references, it is competitive to other Bible concordances when the reader is in need of a quick reference. Then again, in this digital age, a word or phrase can be quickly accessed via cell phone technology. Nevertheless, it's a useful tool.
Dimensions and Specs:
The pages measure approximately 6 1/4 inches x 9 inches, and is approximately 1 3/4 inches thick.
Each page is divided into two columns measuring approximately 2 1/8 inches wide. The columns are separated by a center reference column measuring approximately 3/4 inch wide.
I like to write in my Bible, and these margins are suitable for jotting notes, especially if you write on the smaller side of the penmanship spectrum.
This is a good quality study Bible. Prices range from $40 to $60, and would be money well spent. I really haven't found anything to "complain" about with this Bible (other than the color of the cover...most men will be more interested in a stronger color), so I give it 4.5 stars out of 5. Christmas is approaching, and maybe someone in your circle needs a new Bible.
I received this NKJV Study Bible free of charge from Thomas Nelson Publishers via BookLook Bloggers. All opinions are mine, and I was not required or forced to provide a positive review. By the way, the purchaser can even register his/her Bible with the publisher for warranty benefits. Since I received it free of charge, I didn't think it would be right to utilize this feature...so I'm not quite sure how user friendly that process is.
