My Thoughts:

This is a beautiful Bible. The illustrations, maps, and photographs help set the scene for historical context, while the book introductions let you know what was going on at the time they were written. One of my favorite features is called “Christ in the Scriptures,” and it’s found in each of the book introductions. In this section, the editors point out references to Jesus and His mission. These references may be easy to pick up in the New Testament, but it’s fascinating to see how even the oldest of the Scriptures mentions the Messiah. The charts are also fascinating. One of my favorites is a chart called “Grace vs. The Law” that breaks down the difference between living under obligation to the law and living in the freedom found in Christ.

This Bible is very easy to use, and the commentary is easy to understand. I’ve already used it in my own personal quiet time, as well as to prepare Bible study outlines. I don’t study from the New King James Version very often, as my go-to Bible is a different translation, so I’ve enjoyed familiarizing myself with this version, and I know this is a Bible I’ll be referencing for a long time. There are just so many tools to help you understand difficult passages and see how the God-breathed Scriptures all work together to tell His story of redemption.
