I have two other Life Application Bible's. I have the 2011 NIV version, and the KJV version. All are Black, Bonded Leather, Thumb-Indexed.
The NKJV Life Application is a nice addition to my Bible collection. The only complant is that Tyndale's printing is a little light. Other than that I will enjoy reading this version. One other note, this Bible is very heavy.
To me the most important fact is where the Bible is printed and assembled. This Bible is made and printed in the USA. I know I am old fashioned, but I like things made in the country where I was born.....
This was purchased as a gift for a new Christian. I chose this for it's ease of understanding. I also wanted something to help make the content applicable as opposed to just a story or a set of rules. I believe that NKJV Lief Application Study Bible was the perfect gift.
