    I am disappointed with many of the 'study' Bibles of our day but the Apply the Word Study Bible is quite refreshing in its commitment to prompting one think to about the text one is studying. he Bible has many "application notes" and also includes maps, charts and little character profile boxes throughout. It really is more of an application type of study Bible, not a linguistic study Bible but the application used seems to be mostly exegetically based.

It really is more of an application type of study Bible, not a linguistic study Bible but the application used seems to be mostly exegetically based. I think that the application notes are quite good, none of them really seem forced onto any text they're commenting on, even the ones found throughout the books of the law, and prophets, are quite good and don't seem as though someone was grasping at straws (as some study Bibles seem to do) to find an application of those seemingly tedious parts of Scripture and so they come up with some eisegetical way to get some personal-meaning out of them. For example, toward middle of Ezekiel one of the application notes reads: "…when the show was over, so was the people's interest. They heard Ezekiel's words but did nothing to put them into action. They enjoyed the presentation but ignored the message…Their curiosity about Ezekiel's sermons did not change their lives. When faith becomes more about entertainment than genuine commitment, we become spectators rather than players, concerned more with What is the latest word from God? Than What am I going to do with what God has said? …Self-deception is the worst thing about a faith that exalts entertainment. True conversion and true obedience involve not just expanded knowledge about spiritual things or good feelings toward God, but changed purposes, commitments, and actions." Some of the application notes are quite strikingly insightful, In Luke 18, where the blind man begs Christ to have mercy on him there is a note entitles "Holy Interruptions", part of which reads: "Jesus didn't treat these interruptions like intrusions, He let needy people elbow into His life, even when His closest ffriends tried to block their way. In fact, one could argue that Jesus did much of His work during moments of interruption. We often grown annoyed at disruptions, feeling as if life has been put on hold. When are we missing out on some of life's holiest moments?" Though I have heard of similar concepts/teachings about 'holy interruptions', I had never noticed their significance in Christ's life before and His handling of them. There were some problems that I had with it though, for instance, some references that were made to specific times when Christians "enter into the presence of God" which concept really seems to discount His omnipresence and His promise never to leave us or forsake us. I also don't like that some of the notes call the land of Israel 'Palestine', I thought that the land did not become 'Palestine' until Hadrian's day, not to mention that in our day it’s basic area is the state of Israel. I didn't understand why they didn't call that present day land area 'Israel'. And then there were some things that seemed laughably odd to me (though they didn't mean them to be), three samples of which I'll give here. First: in the intro to each book of the Bible there are lists of key people in that book and key events..etc. Among the key people of 1st Chronicles is "Sheerah, an Ephraimite woman who built three cities". Umm…that just seems odd to me as, though she is mentioned, she hardly seems "key" to the account of book of 1st Chronicles. Second: In a chart comparing Joshua and Paul entitled "Profiles of Leadership" the two men are compared to each other, and in the section "Early indications of leadership potential" one of Paul's early leadership displays was that he "Aggressively tried to stamp out Christianity"? That just seemed too odd of an example in my opinion. And the last that I'll mention is the notes on Matthew 13 where Christ tells some parables, here is a tiny excerpt from the notes, "Jesus captivated listeners by putting spiritual truths into everyday terms they could understand.…His images and language brought His message to life for ordinary people." But if the author of those notes would have just read vs. 10-17 of that very chapter they would realize that they are contradicting what Jesus said, when the disciples asked Him why He spoke in parables He said that He spoke in parables so that the people WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND!! Even the disciples did not understand until Christ explained the parables to them. But, excepting all of the above and some other things, I was pleasantly surprised at the format and study content of this study Bible. I have read too many Christian books and even, if I remember correctly, study Bible notes that seem too, for lack of a better term, "lovey-dovey", too "God is in love with YOU!", too uncomfortably and almost irreverentially romantic. This study Bible is refreshingly un-overly-sentimental…if that makes any sense. I received a free review copy of this book from the BookLook Blogger program (My review did not have to be favorable)

    This review is also available on my blog, Read Till Dawn. This is the second Bible that I've reviewed on this blog (the first was Zondervan's Understand the Faith Bible), and I have to say that Bibles are not the easiest books in the world to review. I was really curious about the New King James Version, though, and I wanted to see what sort of features this Bible has, so I went ahead and requested the Apply the Word Study Bible for review.

This is the second Bible that I've reviewed on this blog (the first was Zondervan's Understand the Faith Bible), and I have to say that Bibles are not the easiest books in the world to review. I was really curious about the New King James Version, though, and I wanted to see what sort of features this Bible has, so I went ahead and requested the Apply the Word Study Bible for review. I've used it a fair amount for a month or so now, and so I think I'm ready to finally write my review. First, the physical stuff. It's not the most attractive Bible in the world (it kind of looks like a textbook from the cover, doesn't it?), but at least it's not the garish red of the Zondervan BIble I tried before. It's hard-cover, which I suppose is nicer than the soft leather-bound Bibles I usually read from but I really just prefer the floppiness of a good leather Bible. It feels strange to hold a hard Bible, but that's really more a matter of preference than anything else. This one also doesn't have a ribbon, which is a bummer, but I just use a bookmark instead. Next, the translation. I honestly can't tell that much of a difference between the NKJV and regular NIV, but then I never really spend much time focusing on the exact words of different translations. Regardless, this is definitely a very fluid, easy translation to read - it's natural enough that it feels like someone could have written it not long ago. Since the original KJV is famous for being hard to understand for 21st-century readers, I thought it was kind of funny how easily readable its modern translation is. There's a certain elegance in the old translation, though, which is why it's my goal to someday own a King James Bible to read when I'm in a particularly poetic mood. Last, the supplementary resources in the Bible. There are little inserts every few pages that go into different verses in more detail, which are pretty interesting. There's also a nice long concordance in the back, which is probably one of the most useful tools a Bible can have. I haven't used the reference materials too much but they seem solid. This is a good Bible for studying, though not a very attractive one. I like to use it when I'm reading at home, but I've never taken it out in public and don't plan to in the future. I think after reading this review you'll know pretty well whether this is the Bible that will meet your needs, but if you have any more questions about it feel free to post them in the comments section below.

There’s a lot of love about this Bible. Here are a few of my favorite things: It’s a NKJV, and that is one of my favorite translations. In fact, for many years, it was the only translation that I regularly used. There are full-color maps and little features about major cities that are encountered, as well as sidebar articles discovering such geographical journeys and the life of Elisha or the life of Samuel. There are historical notes and timelines included. I found the ones on the kingdoms in Egypt and the timeline for the book of Ezekiel to be of special interest to me. There are little blue boxes scattered throughout the text on important people in the Bible, including questions for devotional response. There are a large number of orange application notes in the Bible, covering everything from obscure topics such as concubines in the Bible and clean vs. unclean to the considerations of very modern questions such as career changes and the worship of work. This is a really nice Bible, and I’ll be turning to the study notes again and again and I look at topics different ways in my studies. I did feel that space was a little cramped in the Bible. I like to take notes into my Bible, and there’s not much margin room and the print is on the smallish side. However, having said that, there’s a wide amount of study material and explanations in this Bible that makes it well worth having and using.

The NKJV Apply the Word Study Bible is designed to help you intimately understand the Bible’s message and apply it to your life. As I prepared for my upcoming Bible Study, I truly found the notes and insights provided in the NKJV Apply The Word Study Bible helpful. In the passages that I read, I found a balanced blend of notes that addressed Bible culture and geography, Bible figures, and insights and applications into the verses themselves. However - when I continued my personal study using other Study Bibles I owned - I discovered that the Bible Study notes in the NKJV Apply The Word Study Bible were identical to the ones in the previously released The Modern Life Study Bible (there were just fewer of them!) You can read my full comparison of the two Bibles on my blog. Overall, this is a solid study Bible - but for the slight difference in the price, my preference would be The Modern Life Study Bible.

I found this Bible to be very well laid out and the notes the maps and the helps are in ideal locations that did not distract the reader for the main text. One other thing that is very nice is that this particular Bible has a guarantee for life so that if there's any problem with the Bible whatsoever it can be returned. As for some of the negatives of the Bible, it is a little heavy so it's not very conducive for an individual who wants to do a devotional reading or take it with them on a trip. Also one thing that I've noticed is that while there are a lot of good helps they are geared more towards application and I have seem to see very little in terms of actual study. I prefer more study notes that dig into the meaning of words and some history that is behind what is happening. Having said that, when they set out to develop an application based Bible this Bible does the job. This is definitely a good Bible for somebody who is new to Christianity who would like to understand the Bible better and how it is applicable to them but doesn't want some of the theological notes that a more robust study Bible would have in it. *I received a complimentary copy of this Bible from Thomas Nelson in exchange for this honest review.

As I said before, the features are massive, there's way too many to list. I will list a few. Thomas Nelson guarantee's this Bible for life. Pretty awesome. Every book in the Bible includes an introductory to prepare reader about the writer of the book and key lessons. Along with this added bonus, there are plenty of notes and sidebars to explain what you are reading with cross references. There are numerous tables, charts and maps. Buyers also receive a Download Guide Apply The Word . And if that is not enough there are videos and reading plans at the NKJV website. I had the tremendous opportunity of reviewing the above for Book Look Bloggers in exchange for my views. I highly recommend this excellent resource.
