NKJV, Vines Expository Bible A Guided Journey Through the Scriptures with Pastor Jerry Vines By Jerry Vines Published by Thomas Nelson is a newly published study bible. This bible is perfect for new believers as well as those established in faith and familiar with the bible. The bible is bound with a cloth textured cover and two marker ribbons. This beautiful presentation would make a perfect gift. The larger font is easy to read as well, which will encourage hours of study and reading while at home and at a church service or bible study. Spot color in red adds visual appeal to this bible.
As far as the study material- this bible is as good as having a pastor at your side to guide you as you read the bible. For those who cannot attend bible study or bible services, this bible provides valuable insight with the "Applying The Message" side bars as well as the full length "presenting the Message" pages. These pages and side bars are like sermons and bible studies right from Pastor Jerry Vines, a spiritually gifted teacher of the bible message. Smaller "Discerning the Meaning" tid bits of useful and spiritually awakening information is scattered throughout. Study features such as a concordance and index of topics is perfect for those who want a "where to turn to when feeling _____", for inspiration and information. This bible is in the NKJV. I would like to see this bible also available in the NIV format for those readers who prefer the more modern NIV version. Other than that, this is a perfect choice for a bible, delivering a traditional, non watered down message through the study features included from Pastor Vines. As a blogger for Booklook I received a copy of this bible published by Thomas Nelson. There are many, many study bibles on the market and its hard to choose what to trust. If you are looking for a bible with reliable direction and notes from a trustworthy source, to help inspire you and to help you apply bible principles as you read, this is a great bible to turn to.
