How could I ever give this Book, written by God Himself, less than five stars? The Bible is the most powerful, beautiful and gripping Book ever written. It is 100% inspired by God and sharper than a double edged sword. It had been translated into at least 2,400 languages--more than any other written book! WARNING: This Book can change your life forever!!!!!

Took a challenge from my mom to read the whole Bible in a week and was able to finish it in five days! It was actually really cool to read it all in a short time and It was cool to see the way everything connects!

How many people actually treat a Bible like a book and just read it? This occurred to me today as a funny quirk in many Christian circles. At a certain point in my life, I became annoyed with preachers. No surprise, that seemed to coincide with increased reading of theology books, despite my having no interest in a religious degree. I read the King James Version cover to cover as a child/early teen.

Many years went by and I picked up a Contemporary English Edition, which was humorous. I don't kn

I'm not sure if this is exactly the same bible I have. It is the NKJV, though, and you can't really go terribly wrong with this version. It is more dependable than most modern translations [NIV, Message, Living, etc]. I started off with the KJV [couldn't read it]. Then I went to the NIV and it was the first translation I read through completely. By that point I was conversing with Independent Fundamental Baptists [you guessed it, KJV 1611 only proponents] who said my NIV was from the devil. I re ...more

The NKJV has been my Bible of choice for the past five years, and when I made that decision I chose the Nelson Study Bible as my personal text. For the most part, the extra material is conservative enough without being fundamentalistic. It has too many helpful features to ennumerate in a brief review, but one that I really like and use a lot is the extensive set of study notes at the bottom of each page. The layout is user-friendly, and the relatively large text for the Scriptures is a welcome s ...more

I have two New King James Version. Apparently, they have exactly the same text and style. I always prefer NKJV to other versions. It is a bit in between the old English KJV and the not so modern NIV.

This edition is what I bring with me to church or whenever I travel. It is smaller and more handy. The bigger one, which I owned first and a bit tattered, is what I use for my quiet time and devotion.

Whenever I read, it is as if I do not trust my own comprehension that I just have to always flip bac

I like the NKJV Bible because of familiarity as my pastor in Texas, who was a great Bible teacher, used it from the pulpit. Like every other English translation, there are passages where I wonder what the translators were thinking when they translated it the way the did. But overall, it is a fairly trustworthy translation of the scriptures.

I do believe that the Nelson NKJV Study Bible, along with the Ryrie Study Bible, are the best Study Bibles you can buy today. Unfortunately, I don't believe t

1CThe Velveteen Bible 1D from Thomas Nelson is a special edition Bible in New Kings James Version for children. When I say children, one needs consider their age group before nabbing it for them. This Bible is not a typical Children 19s bible. It is not fully made of pictures (as many Children 19s Bibles are). Rather it is made of beautiful velvet cover and three sets of color illustration of animals in between certain chapters.

This Bible contains all the 66 books in its original form without

Almost exactly the same as the King James Version Bible (KJV), but with occasional modifications of archaic wording that is no longer used in English. It largely retains the middle English wording in its verses, but occasionally makes clarifying alterations of a word. Since it is the same translation as the KJV, but is slightly modernized it is called the New King James Version Bible or NKJV. I recommend it for better understanding the meaning of scriptural passages found in your King James Bibl ...more

I am now on page 1060. Studying as I go.

I have made it a quest to not read another book until I finish the bible. Man is it hard not to pick up a novel...But I am sure I will be better for all the time and effort involved in studying the Word.
Have learned a lot that I obviously have not understood about the laws revealed to Moses. God's commandments on how to treat each other is obvious. Treat others as you would have them treat you.

The quality and craftsmanship of this edition is impressive, I admire the skill that went into it's making. It's fine Goatskin cover is simply beautiful and a delight to hold. Fresh out of the box this edition is flexible and molds to fit your hand (a quality which is highly sought after in leather bound Bibles). When compared to my other compact Bibles the Smyth sewn binding of this edition lays flatter than any other compact edition. Unlike many compact Bibles this edition stays open with out ...more

I've read through the bible several times, three of the times as a Christian and once viewing it as an ancient religious text not the divine work of God, this review takes the later stance. Growing up I preferred the New King James Version, it was easier to read than the King James, but still sort of sounded like the scriptures my dad used to go around quoting from the original King James. It still mostly uses the same manuscripts but gives footnotes to the more recent critical scholarship varia ...more

A sweet addition to the Tommy Nelson Baby/Toddler Bible line, using an adorable image of a flocked velvet bunny. The Velveteen Bible features soft fur and a fuzzy tail! Inside, the New King James Version scripture is accompanied by whimsical images of bunnies and other baby animals, colorful borders, and lovely sentiments from the scriptures. The Bible is packaged in a keepsake treasure box.

Details about the book I found:

The Velveteen Bible is a keepsake Bible put out by Tommy Nelson. The translation is New King James Version. The Bible is small, 4 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ (approx.)
The Bible has flocking on both the decorative box and the cover of the hardback Bible itself. There are three sets of illustrations found in the pages. These are beautiful water colors of animals. Little ones will enjoy the fuzzy places on the cover and the bright colors inside. The pages and type are typical for adult Bibles; they are very thin

I am having problems deciding whether I really enjoy the Open Bible or think it’s a waste of time/money. I know there’s a large span between those two opinions, but I think in the end, I feel as though the Open Bible is a good Bible to have around, but I would never recommend buying it. Let me explain.

I love a good study Bible with relevant, interesting and easy to use resources. But I really dislike the idea of putting out a new Bible just for the sake of selling more Bibles. After spending som
Very cute, they got it right when they said this Bible has the Awww factor, because that it does. My favorite this is the hard keepsake box with the magnetic cover to protect the Bible. It also has the fuzzy ducky on it and is great for little tactile stimulation. Presenting the scripture in the very understandable NKJV (New King James Version) this is a great little Bible for a gift and for a memento of the early years. The presentation page, as well a "All About Me and My Family" page, and mor ...more

This is my favorite translation of the Bible. It is a literal translation like the NASB and ESV, but it does a better job of preserving the beautiful voice of the KJV. It also has supplied words in italics which helps in understanding the original better. I also enjoy having the alternate readings available in the footnotes. All these reasons make it more useful to me than the ESV which is gaining ground as the standard nearest equivalent translation. However, since both versions are fro

This is another Bible I haven't read entirely through but it's the one I keep going back to...I had both the first edition and (now) second edition of this Bible...and if I had waited for the thumb indexed version it would be 100% perfect.

The NKJV is not one I can sit and just read like an NIV, TNIV or even an ESV but when I sit in church or sit down to's the language I want to be memorizing and have running through my head. My church teaches from NIV in the pulpit and NASB in many st

This particular NKJV edition was very well done. There were some images and copious amounts of notes to further my understanding of the text of the bible, I am so glad I opted for this study bible as opposed to a classic bible. The only teeny complaint is the words of Jesus are not in red, I am used to seeing the red text so I could not help but miss that feature. I used this bible as my read the bible in 180 days plan, and some days were harder than others depending on the notes provided, becau ...more

I couldn’t wait to review this bible when it came in the post. I was looking forward to all the lovely pictures that would be featured in the bible, but for a children’s bible it didn’t have that many pictures. It did have a few pages with animal pictures along with Bible verses but not enough to keep the child attention on reading the bible.
Also, I was expecting the version of the bible to be simplified and easy to read. A child reading this bible would find it very intimidating because of the

It's a shame this study bible went out of print, for it is easily the best on the market. The margins are wide, the text large enough for legibility, and the study notes, while gently baptistic and premillennial, are thorough and helpful. Throughout the bible are many good essays.

There are a few concerns, though. Some of the essays on perseverance tend to lean towards the Zane Hodges' grace scheme. Further, the essay on Calvinism and Arminianism was misleading, as it defined Arminianism in such

This is an amazing Bible. I have the Goatskin Leather version and over time is has become an amazingly supple book. I love the wide margins for notes and the thick paper for highlighting. With all the notes I have in it and the time I have spent reading it using Professor Horner's Bible reading system, this Bible has become my most prized possession. That's just the start. The more time you spend in the Word, the hungrier you will be for it. It changed my life and it changes it every day. Love t ...more

Mine is in black leather but I couldn't find it on here. This is a great tool with lots of study helps. Not only does it have notes under the Scripture, but it also has maps (in the Bible - not just in the back) which help so much in really understanding what you're reading about. There are also "In Depth" inserts, charts, "word focus" sections (they not only define the word but tell you where and how it's used) . . . This is a great Bible for someone wanting to truly study the Bible.
