I am a diehard KJV reader-I was raised C.O.G.I.C. and all the 'read on' in church was STRICKLY from the King James Version of the Bible. I noticed in reading the New King James Version it read as close to the original with great clarification of some the words/terms. I also like whenever GOD/THE LORD/THE HOLY GHOST is referenced the pronoun "He" is capitalized. I also loved the Words of Jesus are in RED as well. I originally purchased this bible to take to church with me (I play organ/piano in a large Baptist church of which the NKJV is also displayed on the screen from time-to-time). However, I was SO impressed with this beautiful burgandy (my favorite color) bible I refused to take it out of the house! :) I have it in my nightstand drawer to read after I read my 20 year old well-used/marked KJV.
I am picky when it comes to my Bibles. That being said, this is one of the best Bibles I have seen in this price range.
Like the older NKJV products in this line from Nelson, the large text size, dark print and overall dimensions are perfect. Unlike some Bibles, the red text is deep red, not hard-to-read pink. There is a decent concordance and limited (but not distracting) cross references. But the icing on the cake is Nelson's new bonded leather! Competitors take note: this is how to do bonded leather. It has a gorgeous imitation leather grain in it and, after only a few weeks of daily use, it has become softer and more flexible.
One of my favorite Bibles, at any price.
Well worth the price if you are looking for a NKJV- an excellent and underrated translation in my opinion.
This version of the NKJV Bible has the perfect balance of scripture references, study helps and print large enough that your eyes can survive good, long study sessions. This Bible would be suitable for any one.
