The King James Version Study Bible, Full Color, Leathersoft™ Brown/Red cover from Thomas Nelson Bibles [Review & Giveaway]

God's Word is precious! It should be handled with care and respect. And the printing of God's Word should reflect this respect. When I saw this beautiful King James Version Study Bible from Thomas Nelson, I was immediately drawn to it. The binding is beautifully done and the Bible lays flat for easy reading or laying upon one's desk. 

The cover is flexible two-toned LeatherSoft™, has beautiful gold foil page edging, and convenient thumb index.

The text is quite readable for my tired old eyes. That is very important! The print is consider a "large print" but not so noticeably large as some large print text. The paper, while thin, does not have text bleed-through or shadow-through to interfere with reading.

I am not an authority or qualified to review the study aids in this printing nor any other. But I can share my personal insights in the quality of Bible, ease of use, beauty of presentation, and prolific articles on people, places, history, organization, archeology. I do find that the numbering system developed for this study Bible which connects the words and their meaning quite useful and clearly illustrated and explained at the beginning. The system utilized is different from my KJV study Bible that I have had more than 30 yeas and much more extensive.

Note the woman icon which indicates personality/bio information and the shovel icon which indicates archeological information pertinent to this section.

This study Bible has maps, photographs, and illustrations in full color. There are extensive archeological notes, biographic or personality studies of men and women of the Bible, outlines of the books of the Bible, and doctrinal studies. All this brings a strong impact on the reading and understanding of Scripture.

This is certainly an impressive Study Bible, and I love that it is in the beloved, and tried-and-true King James Version. 

I do have concerns, though. As we all know, the Bible containing the Old and New Testaments is in itself alone a very large print book. Adding some reference notes or cross references adds to that largeness. To add the great quantity of additional information that this Bible printing has creates an extremely large, heavy Bible. Frequent use, handling, page turning, carrying about will definitely create wear and tear making this "life time" Bible wear out early. A heavy Bible is hard to hold in one's hands for reading so placing atop the desk or table for reading is most likely a must do.
