The bonded leather is covered in an unattractive thick/deep, leafy grain running in all directions. It looks and feels cheap. The dull, matt appearance means that it easily attracts finger marks that look like grease. The only writing on the cover is on the spine.
Still it has all the information I wanted:
- Kingdom dynamics - 41 themes throughout scripture
- Word wealth - more than 555 key terms defined from original languages
- Truth-in-action - practical charts for applying the truths found in each book of the Bible
- Detailed introductions to each book of the Bible
- Verse-by-verse study notes
- Coloured maps at the back
- Words of Jesus in red
I would recommend only for the content.
The NKJV stays just as poetic as the Authorized KJV yet is easier to read and understand. There are those scriptures in the Bible that are hard to understand and this Bible provides help in the form of Word Wealth which explains the meaning of the word via Strong's with even more information added. Also various other goldmines of information such as Truth-in-Action at the end of every book and Kingdom Dynamics throughout, footnotes, fully referenced, maps, charts, how to outreach section at the back... the list goes on!
Another notable feature is the fully in depth look at Revelation from various viewpoints, Pre-tribulation rapture view, Mid-tribulation view etc without just the one view it makes it accessible to all without bias.
All that information and yet it is not too heavy to pick up! Great Word, great book, great translation (in my humble opinion), loads of information but not so much that your head hurts and you can still carry it about!
I think my favourite part of the this study Bible is the Word Wealth. As you read, little boxes within the text explain the meaning of certain words in Hebrew or Greek, which gives you a fuller understanding of the original meaning of the text. This has resulted in some enlightening and "Oh wow!" experiences.
It is a Pentecostal/Charismatic Bible or at least leans heavily in that direction. So if that is not your thing, this Bible is probably not for you. It is dispensational too in it's understanding of history and eschatology, though in the book of Revelation it presents all major views of interpretation.
The back of the book has many articles relating to Christian life and experience by many well-known pastors, teachers and evangelists including Reinhard Bonnke and Jack Hayford.
Overall it's a good study Bible with all the usual features you would expect from a Bible of this type. Well worth the price, as I paid 80 for it at the time (about double!)
Firstly the language of the NKJV is a joy: retaining much of the beauty and authority of the KJV, but in a much easier to assimilate style. It does not resort to modern slang or political correctness though, which is very good.
Secondly the study aids are intuitive and not too distracting. There always seems to be help with the very bits I seek clarity on, and the threads that run through this fine bible: "word wealth! and " kingdom Dynamics", for example, provide surprising applicability into the readers life.
Finally it is a beautifully laid out tome that is a pleasure to own and read for pleasure as well as in study.
High recommended to anyone who would seek a better understanding of this most important book.
