NKJV Foundation Study Bible

The New King James Version of the Bible has come out with The Foundation Study Bible.

This is a smaller hardback book with just a few bells and whistles.

Each book begins with explanations of the author, the date in history it covers, a key verse, and the major(s) themes.

On the bottom of each page are the notes for specific verses and the cross reference guide. This is different than most NIV study Bibles whose cross references are found in between the the passages.

I didn't find a problem with print size. Very clear, though small. The words of Jesus are in read (if you're wondering about that sort of thing)

The typically found maps, theological notes index, and concordance are found at the back of the book.

And that's about it. This is a bare-bones study guide. There is absolutely no filler content, no side bars, no cultural context insight. So if you're looking for a simple study guide Bible in the NKJ style, this is your next purchase.

I'm happy I have it as I enjoy using multiple versions while I study.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Thomas Nelson Publishing.
