Like so many, I grew up with the King James Version of the Bible. I love the poetry of the Psalms especially.
Currently, I'm teaching a Bible study to a group of women who were raised Catholic. Their exposure to the Bible was minimal. I gifted these ladies with this parallel Bible so we could read and study together. What may be difficult to understand in the KJV is cleared up by reading its parallel in the NKJV.
This Bible gives you the poetry of the original King James while clearing up some of the wording in the New King James.
This bible is relevant to me becuase the fellowship I attend has Christians who use both the KJV and NKJV. With this bible I can read which ever version is being used or bring a minstry using either version.
This is a well made kjv / nkjv parallel Bible with center column references. A great way to study Scripture by comparing 2 versions for cleairity. This hard bound Bible appears to be made of quality materials, and should hold up quite well under normal use. The print is small, but very clear. If you have a problem with the small print, you can get a varity of page magnifiers here at CBD. I would highly recommend this Bible to anyone wanting to study THE WORD.
I absolutely love this Bible, it has everything I was looking for as far as the KJV/NKJV, it is great having the scriptures side-by-side. It makes it easy to understand when studying the Bible. I just wish the writing was bigger. I like it because it's hardbacked too. Would highly recommend this for a gift or yourself.
