Reader's Bibles

The goal of the Reader's Bible format is to provide people with a more seamless reading experience with fewer distractions. It hearkens back to how the Bible appeared in its earlier written forms, when its original authors did not use chapter or verse divisions.

The NKJV Deluxe Reader's Bible is an invitation to get caught up in the story of Scripture. History, poetry, and prophecy come to life on pages designed for both devotional and extended reading. Premium, high-contrast paper, classically sewn lay-flat bindings, and an innovative approach to chapter and verse markers combine to create a distraction-free reading experience you'll want to return to again and again.

What is a Reader's Bible?

The following characteristics distinguish the format of most Reader's Bibles from that of the traditional Bible (content remains the same):

  • No chapter or verse numbers
  • Words of Christ in black
  • Some (not all) Reader's Bibles arrange the books of the Bible according to different groupings (ex. The Covenant, The Writings, The Prophets, the New Testament) rather than using the typical modern arrangement of Scripture (Genesis-Revelation).

Please Note: Not all Reader's Bibles contain all of these characteristics. We recommend looking at the "Sample Pages" slideshow for the Reader's Bible you're interested in to determine its specific layout.

The NIV Sola Scriptura Bible Project invites you to read the living Word in its most ancient arrangement. The Old Testament is arranged according to the traditional order of the Hebrew Scriptures: the Torah, the Former and Latter Prophets, and the Writings. The New Testament is reorganized by placing each of the four Gospels at the head of four groupings that together bear witness to the central story of Jesus. The NIV Sola Scriptura Bible Project also removes chapter and verse numbers, red letters, and cross references.
