NKJV Study Bible, Personal Size

Thomas Nelson’s New King James Version Study Bible, Personal Size has a pleasant black serif font in the text body with blue italicized section headings. Words spoken by Jesus appear in red. The book functions somewhat like a Bible commentary, because each page contains very detailed footnotes, giving cultural, historical, and linguistical background information about the Biblical text. The only downside of this personal Bible is its heaviness – at 2.7 pounds, it’s not the type of Bible that you would just pick up and carry everywhere, but rather consult when doing Biblical study or research.

Commentaries in the book delve deeper into specific topics, such as The Lord’s Supper, as well as the meanings of various words or terms. Interesting sections of the book included a timeline of the Gospels, as well as various maps, such as a map of Macedonia. A helpful part of the book was the table discussing monies, weights, and measurements in the New Testament. The Bible also has a detailed concordance and subject index. If you are leading a Bible study and want to share some background information with your group, this Bible would be a good resource.
