Customer Reviews

A great study Bible in an accurate/modern translation.
T. Crownover
When it's an easy format to read it helps you to feel comfortable as you soak yourself in His Word and move through the pages.

The layout is very easy to follow and is very user friendly.

I am updating my review (as of 10/21/2011) since there is apparent confusion out there as to which version people are reviewing. My review is of the HARD COVER, ISBN 9781418542085, Second Edition. The words of Christ ARE IN RED; there are NO TABS; it is in LARGE PRINT. If you do not order this explicit ISBN you are taking your chances on what features you will get. Again, you MUST order the correct ISBN version to get RED WORDS of Christ; LARGE PRINT and NO TABS. The paper, of course, has to be somewhat thin or else the book would simply be too heavy and too large to handle. But they are NOT tissue paper thin by any means.

The confusion is a result of Amazon.com allowing reviews of different editions to be posted to a specific edition, thus the differences in the reviews by purchasers.

I have bought this edition for four of my friends who use it all the time and all agree it is the very best version out there if you want the New King James Version.


I just got this new Bible in today. It is NOT 3,200 pages long, but it is a hefty 3,002 pages! This is a brand new edition as of Nov, 2009. It DOES have the words of Christ in RED. That was NOT mentioned in the press release by Thomas Nelson. The print is very large indeed and the RED ink is perfectly legible. In fact, the entire study Bible is beautiful. It includes many many notes, graphs, maps and charts. It also includes, and again this was not mentioned in the press release, a CD-ROM of the Bible in the back of the book. I bought the hard cover version as I believe that a leather one would flex too much given the overall weight of this book. At 4.2 pounds, it is obviously not intended to be very portable. Belongs in the living room or bedroom for reading.

Nelson has released an updated and revised version of the NKJV Study Bible. It has been 10 years since the first edition of this excellent study Bible for all ages! There are more references and word translations in the center column with color coded words. The center column now includes translations/texts for better understanding. The notes seem a little smaller, but that could just be the style of printing. The history/doctrine/denominational charts are deleted. But
other pages have been added showing the teachings of Jesus, List of Jesus' parables, miracles, etc. There is a great subject index and a great large concordance for a study Bible. Each book introduction includes an article "Christ in the Scriptures". There are nearly over 75
maps, 80 charts, 150 Bible Times and Culture, 114 articles on doctrines,
350 revised Word studies, book outlines, timelines, articles on Bible study helps, etc., and much more. Plus, over 15,000 extensive notes!!!
This is one of the very best,if not the best, study Bible on the market. My prayer is Nelson will put this edition in LARGE PRINT. (Also,
revise their BIBLE DICTIONARY AND GIVE US AN Exhaustive Concordance with
Hebrew/Greek dictionary in the NKJV translation.) THIS BIBLE IS GREAT.
THERE IS ALSO A CD-ROM with the same information! GET THIS BIBLE AND GO PLACES for knowledge in God's Word. The bindingpages appears good. A great study Bible in an accurate/modern translation. A WONDERFUL Tool for yourself and as a gift for others. Buy one today! Go first class with
the 2nd Edition of the NKJV Study Bible by Nelson. It's wonderful!!

I was eager to purchase this Bible thinking that Nelson would make an already good product even better. I have mixed feelings about this one:


Cultural Notes
Jesus in the Scriptures


The print is smaller than in the first edition
The words of Christ are not in red letter.
The notes are smaller and are in a light shaded blue (The notes in the first edition could be more easily seen. The word studies, for example, were more darkly shaded and were at the top of the page).
The FullView Bible Summaries charts are gone. These charts had excellent information about Doctrine in the Scripture, the Trinity, the Doctrine of Salvation, etc.

This study Bible is good, but not as good as the first edition.

One of the first things I do when examining a study bible is to look at the list of contributors in the front. Several, such as Darrel Bock are from Dallas Seminary. Others are from seminaries such as Western Conservative. So in examining the notes, I'd expect what I'd call a modern Dispensational perspective similar to progressive Dispensationalism. In this approach, the basic Dispensational timeline is preserved but it is modified so that there is not so much emphasis on a future "Jewish looking" Millennial Kingdom. The Jews are still considered to be a race of people with purposes separate from the church, but for now, Jews join the church.

In discussions between Calvinism and Arminianism , both views are presented without definite bias; Romans 8:29 seems to lean a bit towards the Arminian view. When it comes to millennial view in the book of Revelation, the controversies about the various views are presented, but in the notes the premillennial view is preferred. The word "tribulation" seems to refer to a final tribulation before the return of Christ, usually 7 years in length based on Daniel 9. A rapture before this tribulation is preferred but other views are given as well.
So, if there is a bias in this Study Bible, it is towards a Dispensational-Premillennialism that is newer than the 1960s Ryrie & Walvoord presentations. Yet, it recognizes Non-Dispensational views and is not critical or excessively biased. It is notable that this Study Bible was updated in 2007. In 2008, the NLT Study Bible and the ESV Study Bible have been published; both are Non-Dispensational. The 2008 edition of the NIV Study Bible has gradually switched to Non-Dispensationalism as well.
