The Women's Study Bible NKJV
Thomas Nelson has a new bible translation out of the Women's Study Bible in the New King James Version. I know that most of you tend to be familiar with this version and it's up to par with any other New King James. I have to say that I have not had too much experience with NKJV and this was, for the most part, a new thing. I really enjoyed reading this version. It was easier to read than I expected. I really like comparing it with my NIV and noticing some of the different words and exploring more of scripture through those subtle differences.
As for the rest of the features in this bible, I knew them quite well. They are exactly the same as the NIV version of this bible. For those of you who don't know, there are some short articles that are sound in their writing, personal profiles of people from biblical times that will help you get to know them better, a small collection of notes for some of the scriptures and beautiful, full color maps in the back of the bible. What really caught my attention and shocked me was the this is also a red-letter bible, which I didn't know about when I requested to review it. That was a WONDERFUL surprise since my NIV version don't not have this feature. If you are unsure about what the red-letter feature is, it's where the words of Christ are printed in red so they stand out more and are easier to find.
OH...and did I mention the font is great! It's larger than most and made reading this bible soooo nice.
Overall, I really like this bible. The only thing I kind of have a little qualm about is that the cover is cloth and I have a feeling it will get dirty easy and I would hate to see that since it's actually quite beautiful.
If you are wanting a study bible and not sure about putting out the investment for one that has notes for every, single verse, I would suggest you try this one. Or if you are wanting a NKJV this is the one to get also. I think any woman would love this!
