Several bindings to choose from.

My thoughts: Firstly, my translation preference is the King James Version but this Encountering God Study Bible in the New King James Version (NKJV) runs a very close second in my preferences. The bible (in black Leathersoft™) is absolutely beautiful.The type font is a new one from Thomas Nelson and is classic and so very readable. Readability is not only in size of font, but also in the way the font is shaped and clarity of the font. This one is superb. The layout of the verses is also classic and makes it particularly easy for me as a lifetime KJV version reader.

It is wonderfully endowed with study aids that are easy to access and understand. There is an abundance of study assistance given in this Bible to aid the reader and they are clearly laid out. The Words of Jesus in red ink is another helpful asset. 

Inserted on the pages, and in clear, readable print, are various study aids. Example: 1) Character Study 2 Chr. 3:2 Absalom, and 2) in the same area "Encountering a Creative God" 2 Chronicles 3: God Values Art and Beauty. There are also short "Encounter Notes" such as "God's Awesome Presence."

Beautifully bound with gold edged pages and ribbon markers, this soft cover Bible in a treasure. I highly recommend.
