I had the distinct pleasure and blessing of working in Christian retail for about 5 years many moons ago. Truly a dream for this book reader, I treasured the opportunity to see incoming product and, quite frankly, spend my paycheck at the same place that issued it. Each employee focused on a certain department; my colleague Jeannie, for example, was the resident expert and owner of all things children, while Betty focused on fiction (drool). The store manager (a Brit, by the way, possessing a delightful accent) assigned me to the Bible department.
I wasn’t sure what to make of that at first, but quickly grew to enjoy the assignment. Many a closing-time discussion saw those of us on the “late shift” banter over which version was the “right” one and why. Each certainly has its perks (and drawbacks), but the NKJV holds a special place in my heart as a direct result of those conversations. So, when this blog tour opportunity came up, I jumped at the opportunity to review the NKJV Woman’s Study Bible.
I’m not here to tell you what’s great about the translation. 🙂 Rather, I’m here to tell you that this Bible is something special. Thomas Nelson ups the ante with multiple binding options; the leather is likely beautiful, but I selected the clothbound and just love it. Not your normal hardback book or even Bible, the clothbound option offers an in-between middle ground that is both feminine and durable. Pairing the ease of the hardback and its lay-flat benefits with a pretty fabric makes for an eye-catching book that will last even without a Bible cover (though I still recommend it!). This Bible is heavy and, if you set it on the floor by your bed, your foot will easily stub on a corner or indent the pages. (Ask me how I know.)
The NKJV Woman’s Study Bible features a ton of extras, as noted above. I love the full-color artwork interspersed throughout the pages; the splash of color makes me smile. I also enjoyed reading a handful of the articles; several longer ones are featured at the beginning, and other, shorter/topical ones are placed near corresponding scriptures.
My favorites included the features on Holy Week (what timing as we go through Holy Week right now!); missions (quelle surprise!); fitness; and work. I felt like each very specifically spoke to my own life of late, and appreciated the introspection it incurred. Each article also includes a “chain-reference” type component – referring the reader to other pages on similar topics and scriptures accordingly. The editors admirably present the scriptures and opportunities to apply them in our everyday lives. So often we wonder how Numbers could possibly be relevant (amirite?) – and yet, these ladies do it! (You’ll have to check the Bible out to see how.)
While the study Bible features the expected index, concordance, and maps, I wish its contributor list included an index component. I’d love to find anything written by Elisabeth Elliot, for example; while I’m sure I’ll find it eventually, that would be a nice added feature.
I received a free copy of the NKJV Woman’s Study Bible from Thomas Nelson. All opinions are my own.
