1. GENERAL EVALUATION: The intent purpose of a Study Bible is to give the reader assistance in understanding the scriptures through cross references, comments and exegesis carefully compiled by a board of theology scholars. There are many Study Bibles available, as you likely discovered [....] Each version and publisher differs to varying degrees. I own and use four Study Bibles. All my Study Bibles are very helpful.
The Holy Bible King James Version the King James Study Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishers is an outstanding value. [....]
2. FORMAT: The binding is genuine leather with gold color stamped letters. The page are also gold edged. The paper is high quality Bible paper and thin but not so thin that the printing on the reverse pages is distracting. This Bible is quite thick. The flexible leather covers are very helpful in holding the pages open for easy reading. A stiff cover might make the inside printing somewhat hard to see. The type font is large and very easy on the eyes.
The page format is the standard two column Bible arrangement with a third column between the main texts. The center column is a wealth of information. In the middle column, references to related scriptures are given. Also if an original Greek or Hebrew word has more than one meaning, that meaning is printed in the center column. There is more information in the center column that is too lengthy to describe in this review but a complete, clear explanation is given in the front section of this Bible. Suffice it say that the center column alone can indeed greatly expand the meaning of the texts.
Icons are used to clarify to what a note or comment refers. Doctrinal Footnotes Icons are used for systematic Biblical teachings.

I do not fault the commentary here as it is conservative and helpful in understanding the text overall. What I do fault here is the SHODDY construction value of this Bible. I bought two of these Bibles..one for my wife and one for myself. BOTH are starting to have pages come out of them!! As I looked closer at the binding I noticed that the binding is not sewn or stitched in but cheaply glued in by single sheets. Thus after a little use your high priced Nelson Bible will start to fall apart. The Leather cover is very nice..but what use is it when the binding is so substandard.

BUYER BEWARE!!!

Right up front you should know that the commentary in this edition is "fundamentalist" and mostly Baptist, heavily biased in favor of the literal truth of everything in the Bible. If you share that point of view, you'll love everything about this edition, and you'd probably give it five stars.
I'm not a Baptist or a fundamentalist. I'm a lifelong Lutheran, and I don't see any need to waste ink insisting on the literal truth of the Creation story or the Mosaic authorship of the Pentateuch. But, putting aside my doctrinal prejudices, I find this edition so useful that I wouldn't be without it.
Aside from the small core of Baptist dogma and fundamentalist apologetics, the real mission of the commentary is to help you understand the Christian Bible on its own terms. In that it succeeds much better than "liberal" study Bibles, some of which seem mostly interested in endless and useless speculation on text sources. Whatever your position in the Christian spectrum, from far right to far left, you'll find all the help you need to understand the text itself--historical background, outlines, comparisons with other illuminating passages in Scripture, and genuinely helpful translation notes.
If you love the King James Version, this is the edition that best helps you read it with complete understanding. Its great strength is that it gives you the tools you need for drawing your own conclusions. If you happen to disagree with the editors' ideas of doctrine, you can still thank them for illuminating the text so thoroughly that you have a good basis for disagreeing with them.
In short, you probably can't find a better King James study Bible than this. My only reservations have to do with its fundamentalist bias, and I find that bias easy to forgive for the sake of the many virtues of this edition.

I have recommended The King James Study Bible (Nelson) to family, friends, and members of my church: and this Bible has won even the Thompson Chain Reference group over! I appreciate the notes in the center column which explain the subtle differences in translations of words used within the text; I find it especially helpful to read the reference verses in the center column of each page, which point the reader to other, related verses; I LOVE the "keys" (doctrinal footnotes) on the bottom of the pages which give in-depth, fresh insights into the Scripture; and the special sections dealing with biographies of Bible characters and Bible archaeology are wonderful.

The Nelson KJV Study Bible is truly, in my opinion, the best evangelical/conservative study bible on the market today, and that's saying a lot because there are some good ones out there, like the Life Application Study Bible, the NIV study Bible, Scofields, Thompson, MacArthur, Nelson's NKJV Study Bible, and so on. But having used all these editions, and also enjoying them, I have found the KJV Study Bible to be the most direct and to the point. While other editions are often too much or too little, this one seems to find a good balance. The book introductions are complete, the outlines are extensive, the study notes are consistently adequate - that is, they are well thought out and cover entire passages rather than picking at a verse here and there, which I can't stand about most study bibles. Many individual verses are given separate treatment, however, in addition to the overall passage being explained. For example, each psalm is covered in its entirety rather than a verse here and there, while certain verses are also explained within the context of the psalm or overall Biblical themes. This is the pattern throughout. In addition, doctrinally difficult verses throughout the Bible are not avoided (like the Life Application Study Bible and some others), and there is an in-text study system of doctrines to accompany the notes (evangelical conservative, of course). This edition also has center column references that are extensive and contain difficult KJV word translations; plus you get listings of the miracles, parables, prophecies, the teachings of Christ, and yes, a decent concordance! I should add that the paper/ink quality is now very good in the new shipments that are arriving.Read more ›
