5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Parallel Version 25 May 2006
By Joseph J. Slevin - Published on Amazon.com
Many churches have gone to using the NKJV as the standard for church service and in written articles.

This parallel Bible is excellent for those who use the KJV as the standard scriptures for preaching/teaching and where the NKJV is the standard in his/her church.

One thing that is very interesting is noticing the differences in KJV/NKJV quotes. In some cases there are as many as 6 changes per page. For those who are interested in biblical criticism, this is an excellent tool to show that the NKJV is more of the revised text type than many think.

Another neat feature in the NKJV is that many of the NT footnotes, annotated as NU or M, are the texts usually used in the NIV and the NRSV or related Bibles.

So for the money, you are getting not only a parallel of the NKJV but also of the other texts.

I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - if this is what you need 8 July 2006
By David A. Bayliss - Published on Amazon.com

In some ways this is peculiar as a parallel bible; for the vast majority of the text the two columns are very, very similar. As such it really cannot be recommended for people that want a 'different view' on the same verse.

Where this bible does, in my opinion, become extremely useful is for people that have a preference for the KJV but that occasionally need a slightly simpler or more modern reading for an archaic word.

As the other reviewer mentioned, it is also useful for people or churches that are in a KJV/NKJV transition and for mixed translation bible studies.

This is the second of these parallel's I've owned; as such I recommend it heartily. However it does have some downsides as a 'go to church' bible. It is relatively heavy and it is hardbound rather than leatherbound. That means that the binding does degrade over time; my first one wore out over the period of about 5 years.

One other point to mention is that whilst it has cross references these are very weak compared to a true study bible.

The marginal references are also of dubious value. If you are using a KJV/NKJV combination then it had -better- be because you prefer the Majority text to the Alexandrian (the Greek text used by all the other translations). Thus the usefulness of the notes is limited to anyone that isn't interested in lower biblical criticism.

I have been looking for a bible that has both these translations so that I can compare them side by side.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Study Bible 9 Mar 2012
By Brian L. - Published on Amazon.com

The NKJV and KJV are excellent study bibles. This book is the absolute King James Version and absolute New King James Version. It's also good to have them side by side being that when studying from the King James and needing a more understanding of the verse, the Modern Translation is right there! I struggled between which to read and the whole NKJV controversy, but after much study, the NKJV is what it says it is... a modern translation of the King James Version. God Bless you and may you continue to seek Christ Jesus! He's coming soon!!

I THOUGHT I WAS BUYING A LARGE PRINT BECAUSE THAT'S THE CRITERIA PUT IN. ANYWAY, IT'S A NICE BIBLE, I LIKE THE CENTER COLUMN BECAUSE IT ALLOWS ME TO MAKE A BETTER COMPARISON BETWEEN THE TWO TRANSLATIONS. I OWN MANY BIBLES BUT, THIS IS ONE THAT I WILL MAKE GOOD USE OF.
