Dr. Antonio Maurice Daniels5 Stars Out Of 5Awesome Study BibleApril 2, 2019Dr. Antonio Maurice DanielsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Thomas Nelson's New King James Version Vine's Expository Bible: A Guided Journey Through the Scriptures with Pastor Jerry Vines is an excellent comprehensive study bible that provides readers with significant study aids throughout that enable them to gain a greater understanding of the Word of God. This bible assists readers with useful introductions to all 66 books. Throughout the text, one has the opportunity to engage with unpacked key vocabulary words/concepts that permit a stronger understanding of Scripture.
Jerry Vines leads readers through the bible with 200 "Presenting the Messages," which are detailed outlines that allow them to gain a rich understanding of often complex and/or misunderstood portions of the Scripture. Also, he includes 200 "Applying the Message" entries that aid readers in seeing how Scripture is relevant to their spiritual walk with Jesus.
Many will appreciate the 100 "Living the Message" articles included in this expository bible that present vivid illustrations of true Christian living.
For those looking for a bible to serve all of their needs, this bible is sure to satisfy most (if not all) needs. This hardcover edition of the bible is durable, attractive, and comfortable to carry. The typeface and print are inviting, making you want to spend hours in serious study of God's Word. The commentary Jerry Vine offers throughout this text is grounded in biblical truths; therefore, it supports an accurate understanding of Scripture rather than impeding it.
I highly recommend purchasing this bible, even if you already have a bible, considering the aforementioned features of this text will assist you in achieving deeper comprehension and analyses of the most important book ever written: the bible.

theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5A very good Bible with solid study tools!August 3, 2018theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Overall, the NKJV Vines Expository Bible by Thomas Nelson is a really nice Bible. The copy that I am reviewing is the hardcover version. It really feels pretty good in the hand and has a nice size to it. The print is nice and large and easy to see at about a 10.5 point font for the Scripture text and a 9 point font for the study notes. It is very readable.
This is not what I would classify as a Study Bible as it doesn't have the typical study tools like cross-references or study notes at the bottom of the pages. Rather, Thomas Nelson took the expository sermons that Pastor Jerry Vines preached over his 24 years as pastor at First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida and adapted them into articles and outlines for this Bible. Those sermons were Pastor Vines' exposition that covered every book in the Bible.
With tools such as Book Introductions and key word studies, there are some nice study notes in this Bible. Also, there are a lot of articles about applying the message and living that message based on his expository sermons. All of these articles and tools provide you with a way to help you apply the Word to your life and live it out. They are very helpful.
They also provide over 200 of Pastor Vines' expository sermon outlines in sections entitled "Presenting the Message". I find these to be excellent articles relating to the portion of Scripture they are covering. Think of it as a "sermon-lite" if you will. While I have not read every one yet, the ones I have read are written very well and are solid.
I do like the tools contained in this Bible - while not as abundant as a typical Study Bible, they are well designed and easy to follow.
Overall, I would say that if you enjoy the sermons of Pastor Jerry Vines or lean more toward a Baptist background, then this Bible should be fairly high on your list to get. It is very well written and the design and layout are very pleasing. I would recommend this Bible for sure. If you are looking for a Study Bible that has notes on every single page geared toward the text on that page, then this is not the Bible you are looking for. However, if you are looking for an NKJV Bible that has some really good (and solid) commentary from a Baptist background to help you learn and apply God's Word to your life, then I would highly recommend this Bible for you.
I received a copy of this Bible in exchange for this review from Thomas Nelson and all opinions are my own.
Dr DaveCasa Grande, AZAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Resource for Preaching and TeachingJune 25, 2018Dr DaveCasa Grande, AZAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another review, another Study Bible. Well, not exactly a Study Bible. (Theres a reason Study is in quotes.) This is not a study Bible in the sense that there are a multitude of informative notes at the bottom of every page.
Rather, The Vines Expository Bible is a compilation of over sixty years of the ministry of Jerry Vines. Vines has spent that time as a pastor, teacher and preacher of the Word of God. And now, thankfully, he has placed his wealth of knowledge and years of experience into a working reference. Thus, in the sense of it being a Study Bible, its primarily aimed at preachers and teachers.
It would be voluminous to describe the various entries that are included. So, heres just some that are useful. Discerning the Meaning, scattered throughout the text, examines the meaning of various pertinent words. For example, in Proverbs Vines discusses the meaning of Instruction or in Nehemiah the Wall.
In sections entitled Applying the Message Vines provides insight on how certain passages apply to todays Christian and the church. These are quite prominent in the New Testament. Another collection of entries is Living the Message. These challenge the believer concerning how certain passages can be incorporated into his/her daily walk. And in one section labeled Presenting the Message, preachers and teachers are provided mini sermons complete with outlines and insights.
Structurally the Bible text is easy to read 10.5 type. Additional entries are a bit smaller but still easy on the eyes. The translation is the NKJV. Each book has introductory information to include authorship, date and outline and themes. Back matter includes a highly useful subject matter index, a concordance and the usual maps.
For every preacher and teacher this is a mini course on how to exegete Scripture and then compile the information into a sermon or teaching lesson. Vines has shared a wealth of insights and in the process educated us.
The one final word on this Bible is practical. Every preacher and teacher of the Bible should have this available for reference and consultation. It will instruct, inspire and motivate.

ipso facto2 Stars Out Of 5Very thin pages - the ghosting (bleed through from other side of page) is as bad as I have ever seenMay 25, 2018ipso factoQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I was planning to buy this here online but I am glad I saw it in a store first. In real life it does not look as nice as in the preview pictures. The paper is very thin and the ghosting (bleed through from other side of page) is terrible. The use of dark red borders around the many sidebars and articles makes it especially bad and I don't know how anyone could read it without getting eyestrain and a headache. And that's a shame because otherwise it is a beautiful, colorful book with large clear typeface and many interesting features.
I am also upset with the publisher for calling this "Vines Expository Bible" because it is an obvious attempt to link this with the well-known and respected "Vine's Expository Dictionary" by W.E. Vine. There is no relation between the books or the authors. That is not a criticism of Dr. Jerry Vines since I doubt it was his idea.
Bud4 Stars Out Of 5Hardcover Vines Expository BibleMay 9, 2018BudQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5We've had this bible for about a month now, and it gets used a lot as a reference to what Pastor Vines has to say about a topic, and it's very helpful for that purpose! The bible would be far more useful with cross references, as expository explanations tend to lend themselves to looking up additional references, although it does have a decent concordance. The binding is sewn and the bible seems to be of good quality. Good additional reference for the personal library.
