NKJV Chronological Study Bible--genuine leather, black
It takes a lot to impress me, especially in regards to Study Bibles. I use our selection of 28 Study Bibles as resources in the same way that I use Commentaries, Dictionaries, Encyclopedias, and numerous other books. Since the books we write generally deal with addressing Scriptural issues that Christians face on a day-by-day basis, my primary resource is God's Word. When making the decision to purchase another Study Bible, we focus on 1) the resources within the particular Study Bible, 2) the reputability of the contributers, 3) the availability of other resources by the contributers, & 4) the cost. The Chronological Study Bible (Thomas Nelson) knocked it out of the park in all four areas of consideration. We'd been considering a chronological Study Bible for some time, but we didn't just want one for our own purposes, we wanted one that we could easily recommend to everyone else, irregardless of their level of knowledge or expertise. We chose this particular Bible after researching it, and then when we received it all of our expectations were more than met. Great job Thomas Nelson for putting it together, and thank you christianbook.com for making available to us the best of the best at a price everyone can afford!

Excellent Study Tool
The NKJV Chronological has excellent tools including timelines, maps, historical references that tie to the specific topics being discussed on the page. Gives great cultural references to the material in each section. While not handy for class use, it is a wonderful tool for individual study. The print is very good and the binding is excellent. Have bought four and have given away two as gifts. In each case, the recipients have been very pleased as I was about the overall Bible.

A Great Value
Great bible. Much of the commentary shows how Judeo-Christian thought fits in with other contemporary belief systems.
A beautiful book in and of itself. Thin, buff tone pages, easy on the eyes. Not good for highlighters! I wear +125 readers and have no problem with the font. Extensive concordance and glossary, two bookmarks; well put together.
My only complaint: too much gilt on the pages-spent a while going through and separating all the pages at the corners. A little get acquainted time. :)

The historical sections throughout brings the Bible alive in a way I have not experienced before....The chronological format easily flows with the transition stories kicking off each section.....The leather cover is a high quality product soft to the touch from the first time you pick it up to read...I look forward to reading through it cover to cover this year experiencing Gods words coming alive each day....
