The first thing I love about it is the larger typeset or font. This is very easy to read and made it great for reading without eye strain. The next thing that is gorgeous about this Bible is the pink foil on the edges of the pages! I have never seen anything but silver or gold so having pink is such a treat! Again, it made it so feminine which really appeals to me.
Since this is a study Bible, there are wonderful notes at the bottom of each page that get deeper into what you're studying. They are not so small that I couldn't read them and I love understanding what I'm reading. The study notes explain things in a way that I understood, too.
Then there's the prettiness of the pages - at the beginning of each book, there is a gorgeous flower border at the top. There is also charts and diagrams that have this same flower border. I absolutely love the charts! I have never seen some of these in any other Bible. My favorite is the one called, "The Emotions of Jesus". It shares Scripture and what His emotion was during that time. Loved this! There are just endless charts like this that bring the Scriptures to life!
There are little boxes of devotions or special thoughts and I loved reading these as I read through the Bible. I used them during my quiet time to study those Scriptures in depth.
The only down side to this particular Bible is it is quite heavy for me. Because it's the hardback copy, I find it hard to carry around for any length of time. I have made it my quiet time Bible and leave it on my table where I study each day so the heaviness has not really been an issue for me. However, if you do intend to carry this Bible to church or Bible studies, I wanted you to be aware of it's heft. You might consider the soft covers of this edition if you are going to carry it and don't want the weight.
I love this Bible! It's beautiful but more than that, it has so much to offer inside! I love the NKJV and how easy it is to read and understand, too. I highly recommend this Bible to you and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
*This book was provided to me for my honest review by LitFuse Publicity Group
This Bible is something special. Thomas Nelson ups the ante with multiple binding options; the leather is likely beautiful, but I selected the clothbound and just love it. Not your normal hardback book or even Bible, the clothbound option offers an in-between middle ground that is both feminine and durable. Pairing the ease of the hardback and its lay-flat benefits with a pretty fabric makes for an eye-catching book that will last even without a Bible cover (though I still recommend it!). This Bible is heavy and, if you set it on the floor by your bed, your foot will easily stub on a corner or indent the pages. (Ask me how I know.)
The NKJV Woman's Study Bible features a ton of extras, as noted above. I love the full-color artwork interspersed throughout the pages; the splash of color makes me smile. I also enjoyed reading a handful of the articles; several longer ones are featured at the beginning, and other, shorter/topical ones are placed near corresponding scriptures.
My favorites included the features on Holy Week (what timing as we go through Holy Week right now!); missions (quelle surprise, knowing me!); fitness; and work. I felt like each very specifically spoke to my own life of late, and appreciated the introspection it incurred. Each article also includes a "chain-reference" type component - referring the reader to other pages on similar topics and scriptures accordingly. The editors admirably present the scriptures and opportunities to apply them in our everyday lives. So often we wonder how Numbers could possibly be relevant (amirite?) - and yet, these ladies do it! (You'll have to check the Bible out to see how.)
While the study Bible features the expected index, concordance, and maps, I wish its contributor list included an index component. I'd love to find anything written by Elisabeth Elliot, for example; while I'm sure I'll find it eventually, that would be a nice added feature.
I received a free copy of the NKJV Woman's Study Bible from Thomas Nelson. All opinions are my own.
