Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMOctober 20, 2016FitzysmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Many women collect shoes and handbags. I tend to collect Bibles. (Okay so I have my fair share of shoes and handbags too!) I have a Bible that I like to study from, I have one that I do Bible Art Journaling in, I have one I keep in my car and I have one I carry to church with me. (I also have electronic ones on my phone, Kindle and tablet.) Each one is dear to me and just the right one for the situation.
Last week I received a copy of the new NKJV Reader's Bible. It's pretty and feels great in my hands but why in the world would I need another Bible? Well every other year I like to read the Bible through cover to cover. When I saw that this is a Bible that includes the full text of Scripture but in a novel format I couldn't resist giving it a try as a reading Bible.
I know this may just be psychological but I think it reads faster than a normal Bible. I tend to get caught up in footnotes and references when I am reading so it takes me longer than I always anticipate to cover the daily reading. With this Bible it's not like that I just read to my heart's content and find that I am reading more and enjoying the story itself more than I have previously.
This particular Bible isn't marked like a normal Bible with chapters and verses. Instead it is marked with the beginning of each book (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, etc.). You are able to tell when you've gone into a new chapter because the beginning of each chapter has the first letter of the first word in a different and larger font. It really is like reading a novel.
If you are one that likes to read the Bible through on a regular basis this would be a great addition to your library. I also think that it would make a nice gift for the avid reader on your list.
I received a copy of this Bible to facilitate my review.
SnickerdoodleSarahGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Very handyOctober 18, 2016SnickerdoodleSarahGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4The Reader's Bible (this one is the NKJV) is designed as a single column, "paragraph style" Bible, with no verse or chapter numbers, just the names of the Books. This makes it so that you read the Bible more along the lines of how it was originally put together in a codex, which did not have all of the numbered chapter divisions in the books of the Bible that we have today.
This Bible is definitely reader friendly, it is easy to read through without the potential distraction of verse numbers (though they are handy) and it is a unique experience to have the historical narrative filling the whole page as one column rather than as two, more like how a regular book of history book or biography is put together. You can keep a general track of where you are in any given book by looking at the bottom corners of the pages which tell you which chapter is on the page you are reading.
The only thing that I don't like is that they kept the chapter breaks (without the numbers, just a bolded letter at the beginning of the section). Some of the breaks actually seem to break the flow of narrative or thought in the wrong place (This is the same in regularly numbered Bibles). They stop your eye when your eye should keep going, it sort of makes one's brain think that you are starting to read a new thought rather than continuing the flow or build of thought that you are already on. This has the potential mess up a person's understanding of a text. I wish that they had at least placed the chapter breaks more conveniently.though I still think that in many cases they could have been done away with altogether, especially in the epistles of the NT which would then read more like regular letters.
Other than that, I really like this edition. Also, it is a beautifully bound, elegant looking hardcover. It is also a Holman Bible, which I have found to be pretty high quality Bibles.
Many thanks to the folks at B&H/Lifeway publishers for sending me a free review copy of this Bible! My review did not have to be favorable.
