Last week I introduced the topic on ways I add great books to our family library. Tyndale is only one of the networks through which I receive books. Another network is Book Look Bloggers. Once again, after joining the network, one is able to request a title, read the book and then post a review on a personal blog and on a retailer site like Amazon.
During recent weeks one of my daughters had mentioned to me that she thought a study Bible would be helpful in a particular project. In particular she wanted one in the Bible version that she is primarily studying from for this project. I acknowledged her request and told her that I would keep it in mind.
Some time later, I posted a review for Book Look and perused the “shelf” to see what I would request next.
Right there on the site was a study Bible, and not just any study Bible, but one in the version my daughter had requested. This is probably one of the best additions to our family library and Bible study tools that I have found in reviewing books!
Here is a photo of the Study Bible we received:
My daughter was pretty surprised when I showed her what arrived in the mail that windy fall day. And I am excited to hand it off to her, now that I have used it for a couple of weeks.
Here is what I found in the NKJV Study Bible:
The NKJV Study Bible, the most comprehensive study Bible available, now in a full-color edition with added features! The acclaimed NKJV Study Bible is the most complete study system for all who desire accurate study in God’s Word.

Yes is has all the above. I am currently studying the book of James and came upon a passage that I just couldn’t “get”. Pulling out the study Bible I found an explanation that helped a great deal. For years I have resisted using a study Bible, but having had this one for a couple of weeks I see the great value in the helps that are available in such a resource. If you are curious about the passage that I have spent some time in understanding and processing, it is James 4:1,2. Besides the obvious, I really felt there was something more subtle and applicable, the commentary and verse cross references in the middle column pulled it all together with the current theme that I am finding at every turn.
If your Bible preference is the NKJV I highly recommend this study Bible from Thomas Nelson Publishers as an addition to your Bible study tool.
