Book Review - NKJV Foundation Study Bible


 Part of the Signature Series line of Thomas Nelson Bibles
The New King James Version® - More than 60 million copies sold

The perfect foundation for Bible study and the Christian life. Build your life on it! The Foundation Study Bible is a thorough, portable, and affordable Bible for students of God's Word at any level. It has the most important helps for basic study, whether you're just beginning or brushing up on essentials. 
 
I have owned several Bibles throughout my life, but as far as independent study and devotions are concerned, I think I have finally found "The One" - and that would be the NKJV Foundation Study Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishing. 

The distinguishing features of this sturdy, hardcover Bible include:
  • Trustworthy NKJV text 
  • Cross references and translators' notes 
  • Verse-by-verse study notes and theological notes 
  • Words of Jesus in red Index 
  • Concordance 
  • Full-color Bible maps
For someone who has always had issues getting motivated to do independent Bible study and daily devotions, there is so much for me to love about this Bible! First off, having been a long-time NIV person, I could appreciate that this New King James text is much easier to read and understand than the regular King James text I remember from Sunday School as a kid. But what I truly can appreciate the most about this Bible is the extra little assistance it offers for someone like me - The beginning of each book of Scripture includes an introductory section with details about the author, time period in which it was written, and the theme of the book itself. The bottom of each page includes wonderful study notes that correlate to different verses, as well as a separate box of cross-references. 

What also impressed me about this NKJV Foundation Study Bible was that it's a good, portable size - not too big and not too small - and it's a sturdy hardcover edition with dust jacket that isn't too bulky but rather ideal for taking to school or church. If you're looking for a great study Bible that will help you unlock the Word of God, the NKJV Foundation Study Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishing is the one for you!

You can find the NKJV Foundation Study Bible on Amazon.
Note: This book was provided free of charge to me from BookLook/Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest review of the text.
