Usually, when we think of a study Bible we think of a Bible which has cross references and notes with references, etc. NKJV, Unapologetic Study Bible: Confidence for Such a Time As This from the Emmanuel Foundation is different. We read the Bible everyday and have several study Bibles, each one has a little something different. Some have quite a few maps and illustrations. One is laden with footnotes that explain in a little more depth what is going on and gives cross references to other parts of the Bible that help to understand the passage. The NKJV, Unapologetic Study Bible does not have all that. It does have some notes about translation differences in other translations of the Bible. It also has what could be called articles sprinkled throughout the Bible that discuss the message that all Christians should be getting but many aren’t. The Emmanuel Foundation takes on the issues that preachers should be preaching about but so few do because they are afraid that people don’t want to hear about their sins; they only want to hear about how good they are doing and that everything under the sun is okay. This NKJV, Unapologetic Study Bible gives what should be a wake up call to Christians who have grown up in a world of political correctness and tolerance. One should read Matthew 7:21-24 to see that many of these so called “tolerant Christians” are not correct. All Christians should read these articles and hear what they may not be hearing from the pulpit of their church. We give NKJV, Unapologetic Study Bible: Confidence for Such a Time As This from the Emmanuel Foundation all five stars. We feel like The Emmanuel Foundation is correct in its assessment of what the Bible really says. This would make a great gift for any Christian. The only real issue we have is minor. When this Bible breaks into an article, it often does so in the middle of a Bible chapter. This sometimes breaks the flow of reading. This is only a very minor issue. We were sent a complimentary PDF copy of this book. We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

As might be imagined, at its base this Bible is a New King James Version with a large amount of supplementary material.  Aside from this, the Bible is not a study Bible per se, having only very straightforward textual notes, even if it does have a very lengthy index of features for topical study at the back of the Bible that ought to encourage some readers to take some relevant studies of how the Bible applies to society and has been so applied through the ages.  What sets this Bible apart from so many others is the nature of its commentary material, which is divided into eight categories:  church (prophetic voice, glory, in decline, culture and public duty, world religions and worldviews, spiritual disciplines), corruption (bribery, greed, hypocrisy, idolatry, prejudice), economics (systems, poverty and wealth, taxation), education (evolution and intelligent design, manners, teaching and learning), family (adultery and fornication, divorce, homosexuality and trangenderism, marriage and family, parenting), government (church and state, environmentalism, forms of government, peace and war, punishment), sanctity of life (abortion and infanticide, contraception and fertility, biotechnology, euthanasia and suicide), and virtue (compassion, courage, faith, character, justice, repentance, and work ethic).  These eight themes are viewed in four quadrants:  biblical, historical, quotations/writings, and commentary, and manage to find some very thoughtful material about these concerns in nearly every book of the Bible, which is mapped out at the beginning of each book of the Bible in introductions. To the editors' credit, the material in this book comes off as an appealing mixture of combative but also moderate and nonpartisan in its town.  The author speaks out clearly about personal and social evils, but puts those in a biblical perspective that also emphasizes personal responsibility and thoughtfully points out the tendency of governments towards oppression and tyranny.  There is a focus on the duties of stewardship for the earth that man has but a criticism of the heathen and antibiblical roots of a great deal of the environmentalist movement and the socialist ends for which it is used.  Rather than viewing either government or the absence of government as some sort of false messianic savior, the commentary material points to the problems of mankind being present in our rebelliousness against God and against His ways, something this book has a lot to say about, much of which it is not pleasant to hear.  The combination of moderate and biblical tone as well as forcefulness of approach is one that is likely to make this Bible greatly appreciated by those who have a high degree of fierceness about the cultural and social and political crisis of our contemporary world without having a highly partisan view of it.

    This "NKJV Unapologetic Study Bible" contains all the books of the Bible while also including unapologetic articles about topics that connect Bible information to today's times. The articles are color coded based on the topics of church, corruption, economics, education, family, government, sanctity of life, and virtue. The articles are gleaned from the Kairos Journal website to help encourage and equip pastors and are conveniently around the Scriptures that they reference.

The articles are gleaned from the Kairos Journal website to help encourage and equip pastors and are conveniently around the Scriptures that they reference. Bible readers will probably also find the Bible book introductions helpful, which contain an introduction of the Bible book, background, content, insight, and outline of the Bible book. There is also a overview included with each Bible book which shows a color coded chart that highlights with white diamonds what color coded topics are covered and the type of information that is used (Biblical, Historical, Quotations & Writings, and Commentary). Ending pages include a Table of Monies, Weights, and Measures, Index of Features for Canonical Study, and Index of Features for Topical Study. I read through the Bible book of Ezekiel when reading this Bible. It seemed like the articles alongside Scripture were kind of more over my head than I am used to so I now I understand that they were probably written more for leaders of congregations but that they can help other learners to understand how articles like that help them gain knowledge of how to encourage and teach people through their God-ordained sermons, while people taught by congregations leaders that read them can gain the knowledge themselves also. I liked the overview section at the beginning of the Bible books a lot because it showed me what kind of information and topics are included within the Bible books. Some books have a little amount of white diamonds filled in while others have a lot (or none). That got me to thinking that that the Bible books with none of the main topics highlighted are probably very unique and might carry different kinds of messages than the others. Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through a book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    This Bible is non-apologetic in its approach to issues facing the 21st century Christian. The content is based on eight general topics using four approaches: See AMAZON.COM for a nice chart describing these topics and approaches. Colors and icons are used to distinguish the various notes. Indexes at the rear of the Bible provide access to the various entries at a deeper level by providing access to the notes in both a canonical order and for use as a topical study. Interestingly, unlike most This Bible is non-apologetic in its approach to issues facing the 21st century Christian.

Indexes at the rear of the Bible provide access to the various entries at a deeper level by providing access to the notes in both a canonical order and for use as a topical study. Interestingly, unlike most Study Bibles, this edition does not include any colorful maps - yet given the ease at which these are found in other sources, they are hardly missed. Though the translator notes are included, other cross-references are also missing. Similarly, other than the topical helps included throughout the book, no individual textual notes are to be found. Bible book introductions are included for each book as well as to how the book might fit into the chart given above. The primary purpose of this Bible edition is not Bible Study per se, but in providing access to a variety of tools to assist the reader in completing topical studies on (as mention in my first sentence above) issues facing the 21st-century Believer. This Bible does have a strong focus on Biblical application, though that is not its stated purpose. The missing component of this study are pointers to additional resources which might assist the reader in doing further research, beyond that included in this text. It also should be noted that no bibliography is provided. A scholar would have no problem with this obvious omission; the lay reader would be helped by having guidelines of where to go for more information. I will be keeping this Bible on my shelf, though I am not sure how often it will be consulted. ______________ This review is based on a free copy provided by the publisher for the purpose of creating this review.

We’ve become desperate to stave off or terminate life through Contraception, Abortion, Euthanasia, and Suicide when we feel it has become troublesome; yet we also spend small fortunes on Fertility, or one day Cloning, to conceive a child or “restore” what was once lost. The promise of Biotechnology and Stem-Cell Research may appear, at once dazzling, will turn terrifying as the science employed for such gains will go astray morally. Of course, feelings of compassion can come into play in all of these areas — whether to relieve suffering and heartache or to alleviate misery — but feelings, which are often conflicting, are an unreliable guide to morality.

    This Bible has so much to offer! It's packed full of information and extras that will help you get a better understanding of the Bible. First of all, this is my favorite version of the Bible - the New King James Version. I find it very easy to read yet has the same wording as the KJV. The font is very easy to read and not too small for me plus the paper is a really good quality. The beginning of each book has an introduction, background and overview so you understand what you are about to read. I This Bible has so much to offer!

In the back, there are charts about subjects to help you dig deeper and study these subjects in depth. There are so many wonderful features to this Bible! It's the perfect Bible for Bible study but also for reading. It has so much to help you as you read that you'll come away knowing God in a deeper way through His Word. I love this Bible and give it 5 out of 5 stars. *This Bible was provided to me for my honest review by the BookLook Blogger Program

    NKJV Unapologetic Study Bible is not like your typical study bible. Throughout this Bible you will find articles that help to discuss the message making it better to understand Scripture. The articles are like having a preacher teaching you through a sermon. NKJV Unapologetic Study Bible gives what should be a wake-up call to Christians who have grown up in a world of political correctness and tolerance. I like that this Bible is a hardback with the jacket cover and hardback cover being the NKJV Unapologetic Study Bible is not like your typical study bible.

I like that this Bible is a hardback with the jacket cover and hardback cover being the same. When reading, I find that this Bible lays flat which makes it easier to use during study and reflection. The quality is superb with little details like the beginning of each chapter is marked along the top with a black color mark. Also, at the beginning of each chapter is a quick but detailed list of important information about that chapter. There is an introduction, background, content, insight, and outline along with an overview. I feel this would make a great gift for any Christian or a nice additional to your own collection.

    I received a complimentary copy. It would take a lifetime to really get this Bible finished if I was reading cover to cover, I would hit the end but I still not get all of the knowledge figured out. It is a perfect reference especially if you struggle with really getting the meaning of the scriptures etc. The font is a smaller size, but can still easily be read. I think that if you love God and learning from the Bible, this would make a great faith based spiritual gift for older readers.
