Review: Thomas Nelson’s NKJV Study Bible Full-Color Edition

In college, I invested in a study Bible that I loved. I used that study Bible until it literally fell apart. It served me well… including during my first, tenuous days as a youth pastor when I felt as though I was consistently in over my head theologically. The study Bible was a tool that enabled me to both grow in my own faith and teach others to do the same.

When that study Bible wore out, I replaced it with a thinner Bible. Although I haven’t returned to a study Bible since then, there are many times I’ve wished I had a good one. For that reason, I was excited for the opportunity to review Thomas Nelson’s NKJV Study Bible Full-Color Edition.

Thomas Nelson’s NKJV Study Bible Full-Color Edition is stunning. It has a beautiful embossed cover and full-color pictures scattered throughout it. One of my favorite features is the full-color maps dispersed throughout the pages of Scripture, wherever they make sense. (The end pages also feature a few key maps including the World of the Patriarchs and the Holy Land in the Time of Jesus.)

Thomas Nelson’s NKJV Study Bible Full-Color Edition has all the study helps you’d expect from a good study Bible. Additionally, each book of the Bible opens with background information about the book’s author and date, historical background, historical accuracy, and its importance in the canon. It’s features like these that make Thomas Nelson’s NKJV Study Bible Full-Color Edition an excellent resource for anyone looking to deepen their knowledge and understanding of Scripture. 

Disclosure: I received a copy of Thomas Nelson’s NKJV Study Bible Full-Color Edition from Thomas Nelson and the Blog about Blogger Network in exchange for a fair and honest review.
