Book Review, “NKJV Deluxe Reader’s Bible,” Thomas Nelson publisher

NKJV Cloth over board Bible

The NKJV Deluxe Reader’s Bible, published by Thomas Nelson, is “perfect for both devotional and extended reading.” Its simple cloth over board design and protective box make it practical for everyday use.

This Bible is designed to eliminate distractions from God’s Word sometimes created by cross-references and notes. It puts as little between the Word and the reader as possible. Chapter and verse markers are located in the margins. Line matching eliminates most ghosting, and the 10-point text itself improves readability. There are no translator’s notes. There are two satin ribbon markers and a Smyth sewn, lay-flat binding.

This is a wonderful Bible.  Its simplicity reminds me that it is God’s Word that we need. Footnotes, articles, and cross-references are extra help, but not absolutely necessary. Even the simple color scheme of this Bible is designed to minimize distraction.

I would recommend this Bible to anyone wishing to focus on the Word of God.


I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
