I have been using this Bible for a couple of months now with my Bible Art Journaling. It has wide unruled margins (about 1 1/2 inches) that are perfect for illustrating the Scriptures. When I am using colored pencils I don't do anything to prep the pages. They are still thin Bible pages but are very sturdy. When I use Micron Pens or watercolor or acrylic I do put a sealer on the page so the color/ink won't bleed through. I happen to like doing art in this Bible but it would also be perfect for just regular study notes.
For those of us who like to write in our Bibles, this version is a good resource. However, there are a few things you must understand about this Bible before purchasing it. Whenever a book offers large spaces in the page margins for note-writing, one of two things must occur. Either (1) the Bible has to be a monstrous volume in order to provide ample writing space, or (2) the Bible must be written with such small print that the reader strains his eyes reading it. The latter is true in this case. DIMENSIONS: The Bible weighs 1 pound, 14.4 ounces. Its thickness from cover to cover measures approximately 1 1/8". The cover is approximately 9 1/2" tall, and 6 1/2" wide. Pages measure approximately 9 1/4" tall, and 6 1/4" wide. The outer and lower margins provide approximately 1 1/4" and 1" respectively for note-writing. Not bad, actually. However, letters stand approximately 1/16" tall, and each of the two columns per page span approximately 2 1/4" (depending on whether it's a poetry or prose section). A little small for my tastes. VERSION: The version I received for review is the NKJV. On a personal level, I enjoy the NKJV, a proven readable and reliable version. However, I am not providing a review of the text, but the physicality of the Bible only. COMMENTARY: If you're looking for a study Bible with author/editor commentaries, then this is not the right choice for you. If, however, you find yourself getting bogged down with all the varied suggestions, you might like this Bible. There exists at the bottom margins of the pages some editorial inserts suggesting what the original texts of given verses seem to have suggested. Because there is no concordance in the back, cross-referencing passages will have to be accomplished via the use of other tools. RATING: This Bible version is a good idea for note-takers, but its text is a bit small for reading. Nevertheless, it is simple and basic. I give this Bible 4 stars out of 5 for its simplicity and usability. DISCLAIMER: I received this Bible free of charge from BookLookBloggers in exchange for my unbiased review of it. I was not promised reward or coerced to provide a positive review. All opinions are mine.
This Bible is designed for those of you who like to take notes in your Bible, but do not have enough room in the margin. It does not have anything extra in it like commentary, devotionals, or maps but it is a perfect Bible for everyday reading and writing. It’s made so that it lies mostly flat, and you do not have to worry about losing your spot as there is no need for creasing or pressing the pages down. I usually use the ESV version and I couldn’t remember the last time I read the NKJV. I compared the book of Philippians between both of them. I am not sure of all the changes made from the KJV to the NKJV, but I found it easy to read and written in a understanding way. What I enjoyed about this Bible is that it is just a simple Bible. Nothing extra in it and wide margins for writing. You can take the front sleeve off the Bible, so that it is just a hardcover. It was designed to look very clean and easy to read. At the bottom of the pages it gives cross-references and literal words in both the Hebrew and the Greek. Sometimes with Bibles that have commentary, I find myself reading the commentary more than reading the actual Scripture. I would say the two things that I would change, to the design/layout that is, are: Adding lines to the margins so it is easier to writer neatly. Making the font size bigger, as it seems very small. *My review is mostly in reference to the design and usability of this Bible, not to the Scripture. BookLook Bloggers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy.
