NKJV Faithlife Illustrated Study Bible


NKJV, Faithlife Illustrated Study Bible, Hardcover, Red Letter Edition: Biblical Insights You Can See
comes from the makers of Logos Bible Software, with color illustrations and comprehensive verse-by-verse insights.

The features of the Faithlife Bible include:
  • The full text of the New King James Version (NKJV) translation
  • In depth book introductions that include an outline and information on authorship, background, structure, themes, and a map, a timeline, or both
  • Verse-by-verse study notes with the unique focus of revealing nuances from the original biblical languages for modern readers
  • Informative contributions by respected scholars and best-selling authors including Charles Stanley, Randy Alcorn, and Ed Stetzer, among others
  • Over 100 innovative full color infographics, comprehensive timelines and informative tables to enrich Bible study
  • Three detailed life-of-Jesus event timelines chronicling his infancy and early ministry, the journey to Jerusalem, and the passion and resurrection
  • 27 family trees and people diagrams illustrate the interconnectedness of key characters in Scripture
  • Helpful overview articles give a bird’s-eye view of the books of the Bible, noting the type of literature and key themes of each book.
  • 14 original color maps at the back of the Bible provide historical and geographical context for key events of the Old and New Testaments
  • 9-point font size

This hefty Bible is a great study tool for anyone, but I especially like it for high school and college students. My teen son was immediately taken with it and dove right in. The numerous notes, many of which take over more of the page than the biblical text itself, add so much depth to this Bible. The infographics, timelines, and family trees also add to the value of this Bible as a study Bible.

I like the larger print, and thought the font of the notes is small, it is larger than I find in most study Bibles.  The introduction includes a wonderful explanation of how to study the Bible--looking at Bible study from the standpoint of studying any other book. It definitely belongs in our homeschool curriculum.
