Holly5 Stars Out Of 5NLT Illustrated Study Bib.eOctober 7, 2019HollyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an incredible Bible. The powder blue Bible labels will match the blue on the cover. Many colours and pictures throughout. More than I have seen in any other Bible. The layout is really nice with lots of colour and highlighted text. Many information paragraphs and information pages. Lots of study notes to read.
Former New AgerMid-Atlantic5 Stars Out Of 5Bible with many visual helpsApril 11, 2019Former New AgerMid-AtlanticQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Bible is like a Bible and a mini-Bible encyclopedia with charts, maps, tables, pictures, articles, and excellent notes. It's a great reference tool and study resource. It is hard to stop studying with this in your hands!
I want to comment on another review's statement about an article called "The New Order" on p. 1281 of the Bible. This has nothing to do with any "new world order" but is about Isaiah 65 and God's restoration and redemption of Israel. If the person had read this and read Is. 65, that might have been apparent. Just using the words "new order" does not make anything New Age and the editors for this Bible are hardly promoting anything non-Christian or they would not put out a Bible! As a former New Ager, I can say that that reviewer's comment is baseless, and those who liked it should know better. As Christians, we are not to be fearful and read meanings into things that are not there. The Lord took me out of the New Age to Christ, and this Bible has nothing to do with New Age ideas. So if you want a Bible with a lot of visual helps and study notes, consider this one.
Ruth5 Stars Out Of 5Great BibleMarch 5, 2019RuthQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 52015 text. Lots of color and pictures, charts, articles, etc. to help the reader understand. If you tried reading the Bible and gave up because you just couldn't understand it, try this one. Then start at the Gospel of John.
Fran5 Stars Out Of 5Awesome Study Bible!February 20, 2019FranQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Wow! I love the NLT Illustrated Study Bible! If you are a visual person (and many of us are) you will benefit tremendously from the abundance of illustrations, photographs, timelines, charts and maps throughout this Bible.
I have the soft leather-look, teal/chocolate edition. The cover is beautiful, and indeed, does feel like soft leather. The paper is very white, and has what I would call a polished texture, and is thick enough to grasp easily to turn the page. The font is very easy to read and could be a daily reader, and not just a resource. That is not the case with all study bibles. The chapter numbers and headings are in a different color, such as teal in the Pentateuch, green in the Poetry books, purple in the Prophets, etc. The words of Jesus are in black, not red. With all of the illustrations, having red letters would probably make the bible look too busy and distracting. Plus the fact that the NLT version uses quotation marks. Additional study helps include: How to Study the Bible, Hebrew & Greek Word Studies (nice!), Weights & Measures, Dictionary/Concordance, Index to Special Features (character profiles, themes, timelines, photos, articles,maps, and photos - nice!) and a Notes Index (also nice!).
One thing I would like to see this 5 star bible come with is a Smyth sewn binding because I plan on using this bible a lot! I expected a sewn binding, and was surprised it was not offered. So that cost 1 star in the "Meets Expectations" category. C'mon Tyndale! Sewn binding! Let's go! You can do it!
