Thomas Nelson’s King James Study Bible in the full-color edition is a beautiful choice for those seeking a helpful, conservative study Bible. My teenage son is especially into study Bibles, so when I received this Bible for review I asked him first to take it and look at it. He loved it! My review copy was cloth over board, but he says now that this is the Bible he wants in a leather edition for his high school graduation present. He already owns some other nice study Bibles from different publishers, but in his view the notes were “deeper” and he felt he would get more out of it in his studies than from other such volumes.
From my point of view, in addition to what my son appreciated, I also was impressed by the many full-color maps and charts. There were archaeological notes, personality profiles, and discussion of important Christian doctrines. Every book of the Bible had an introduction and outline and there were helpful indices and a concordance at the end. The pictures were beautiful and I agree that the notes were helpful.
I’ll have to agree with my son on ranking this volume at the top of KJV study Bibles. I can think of one other KJV study Bible that’s almost as attractive, but the notes put this volume over the top. You owe it to yourself to look over this volume if you are in the market for a KJV study Bible. You won’t be disappointed.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
