Pastor E.G. GrahamJamaicaAge: 35-44Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5The best study bible aroundApril 22, 2019Pastor E.G. GrahamJamaicaAge: 35-44Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this bible and I'm not sorry at all. It's NKJV made by Zondervan in collaboration with Faithlife the makers of Logos bible software which you can get free at logos.com. This is a heavy bible and might not be portable for most persons but this is how i love my bibles. When I have my bible in my hand it must feel like I'm holding a bible, I don't like thinline bibles, i love big hefty bibles. This bible has over 2300 pages printed on very good bible paper. It's premium bonded leather (wish it was genuine leather), Smythe sewn with 2 flimsy 1/4 inch ribbons (for a bible this size, it should have had at least 4 of these ribbons or three 3/8 inch ones). It has pink under silver art gilding which is really beautiful. It also has a decent concordance and a couple tables at the back plus 14 coloured maps on bible paper not car stock paper and they are not glossy, I really like this. It has the full NKJV text (which is my preferred bible, it's the first bible I ever read), but not the full set of translators' notes or cross references. In terms of the study notes, they are among best I've seen in a study bible, you get more than one perspective that lessens the bias which then allows you to come to your own conclusions. There are many timelines and Hebrew and Greek word studies and many illustrations. The illustrations are in the bible itself and not at the back and they don't impede your reading on the following pages which was extremely well done. There are some very good articles from respected scholars, lengthy book introductions and overviews to start each book of the bible. Each section has an introduction, one at the beginning for the Old Testament, one for the Pentateuch, the historical books, the New Testament, the gospels etc. There are overviews of people in the bible and did I mention many illustrations as its name suggests? Zondervan did a really good job on this bible, my only gripes were the flimsy ribbons and that it was not genuine leather although the premium bonded leather does look and feels great in my hands. I love this bible and got a great deal from Christianbook.com and they have the best customer service I've ever seen hands down. This will be my go to study bible, even I'm not a study bible person I much prefer reference bibles any day, as study notes are another person's opinion and I don't agree with a lot of things they say, nevertheless this one is definitely a good one and its different from most study bibles the focus is on the underlying Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek text. By the time you get through this study bible you will have learnt many Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek words and you don't have to be proficient in the original languages to understand this one (I certainly am not) but it was so well put together by the Faithlife team along with Zondervan, even newbies won't have any difficulty reading and using this bible. I recommend this study bible over all else as a wonderful tool to have in your library, its an excellent bible to have. Well done Faithlife, well done Zondervan.

I purchased the bonded leather and it is very nice and comes with two ribbons and has red under silver art gilt. The print is a 9.5 and easy on the eyes. The ink is nice and dark and clear which makes it so much more enjoyable to read and study. The notes are a bit smaller in text size but not difficult to read as the ink is dark. Also included is a decent concordance and some very nice maps. The maps aren't glossy so there isn't any glare and they are done in nice pastel colors. The paper is a bit thin so highlighting will be a challenge unless you use colored pencils. Also lacking is margin space for note taking.
The bible is a little on the large size but not as hefty as some study bibles such as the ESV or CSB. It would work as a bible to take to church but I'd recommend a cover as it is hard to hold onto due to size and slipperiness of the cover. This is a really gorgeous bible and full of helpful notes and info. I would recommend.
