This NKJV is an absolute for anyone who has ever loved the beauty and richness of the Old King James and makes this NKJV hard to put down.
Translation – Four Stars
The New King James version is an update of the older King James Version. The new update removes antiquated language (thee, thou, etc.) and improves grammar. However it still sounds very familiar to those familiar with the KJV. Most scholars tend to agree that overall it is an accurate translation, but that the underlying text the Textus Recepetus may not be the best. The differences between more widely accepted texts are generally minor and have no real impact on significant theological issues, but it’s worth mentioning.
Study Notes – Four Stars
Obviously I haven’t read each note, but in general they seem pretty good sort of moderate to conservative evangelical. They did seem to avoid some more controversial issues which seem to be why you might want to reference study notes. There are additional helps like word studies, short articles, charts, maps and a nice concordance. Overall these study notes should be a help to most people.
Physical Construction – Three Stars
The description does clearly states that this is imitation leather, but I was expecting something just a little nicer. I assumed this meant the material used in other Bibles called Duo-Tone. However, this is more like a thin embossed plastic glued to cardboard. It looks and feels cheap. In all honesty I was so disappointed I considered returning it, but the reality is this is nice enough for just a little over forty bucks. The remaining construction seems pretty nice and the general look and layout of the pages is very usable. The paper is of nice quality and not too thin as Bible paper sometimes is.
Overall 3.67 Stars (rounded up to four)
This is a good Study Bible and should serve you well as an additional study aid. If you’re looking for a nice Bible sort of an heirloom type item I would definitely consider something else due to the cover material. Also, you might save a little money and get the hardback since this isn’t really that much nicer.
I chose this bible among many other NKJV choices because it is paragraph-formatted, unlike many other NKJV offerings that are indented with every single verse. I find this more suitable for reading because it allows the text to flow like a story or letter, which is exactly what the books of the bible are.
What sometimes gets in the way are the articles strewn throughout the text. They can be distracting or interrupt the flow of scripture. I have seen other NKJV titles with articles that have them hyperlinked instead -- and this is what I would suggest to whoever publishes this content.
Everything else in this eBook, including the notes on specific scriptures, are very rock-solid. I definitely suggest this eBible (eBook? lol).
