Are you looking for a Bible that in addition to the text can teach you how to do word study? Do you use the KJV? I think you’re really going to like this new Bible by Thomas Nelson. (You can get it in hardback or in imitation leather). The Bible is a book of words. Our understanding of the Bible boils down to an understanding of the words. Every Bible student should be particular about understanding the words, especially the keywords. This new Bible will greatly help you in that endeavor.
Each book of the Bible is given a short overview in a few paragraphs with some especially important keywords to watch for. Then, in the KJV text every word that is especially studied in their added notes is underlined. Some of the discussions will take place on the page you are on while others require you to look at a list in the lower right corner of the page and go to another passage where that word is discussed. While what words are discussed may strike you as arbitrary, many words in the text get covered.
You can expand your studies by the indexes provided in the back. There’s an English word index which will guide you to the passage and Strong’s number where you can do further study of the word. Next, there’s a Scripture passage index that takes Scriptures in order from Genesis to Revelation to let you see what words will be discussed. Finally, there is a separate Hebrew and Greek index tied to the Strong’s numbers to open yet another way for further study. In addition, there’s an abbreviated concordance followed by some attractive, full-color maps.
This Bible is not a reference Bible. A reference Bible aids study by providing background information or brief commentary. This Bible is exclusively to help you develop your word study skills and get more out of your Bible reading. I consider it an awesome tool for all Bible readers out there.
