Specialty Bible Review: NKJV Unapologetic Study Bible

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. 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.

My review= 5 out of 5 stars

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
