Evangelical Study Bible

I always love an opportunity to review new Bibles, especially study Bibles, so I was excited to check out the Evangelical Study Bible. It shares many similarities to other study Bibles but offers a few unique elements that bring out the life-changing truths of the Christian faith.

Of course, the first thing I notice with any new book or Bible is the cover. I received a hardcover copy, but it also comes in leather and leathersoft. Regardless of the binding, this is a thick Bible.

Of special importance to me is the readability of a Bible. So many have thin paper, tiny print, and light text. This Bible, on the other hand, is very easy to read. It uses the technology of Comfort Print. According to the publisher, “The NKJV Comfort Print Typeface was designed by 2K/Denmark as a special commission. The typeface takes inspiration from clear, distinct Aramaic limestone inscriptions of the Second Temple period and pays homage to the NKJV’s rich heritage of word-for-word translation. The result is a distinctive new Bible typeface that is uncompromisingly beautiful, bold, readable at any size, and perfectly suited to the NKJV Evangelical Study Bible.” I have no idea what that means, but I do know that I can clearly read the scripture. The extra features, however, are tiny and not so easy to read.

Speaking of special features, the Evangelical Study Bible includes:

  • Verse-by-verse commentary on the entire Bible
  • Over 200 short articles on Christian teachings and doctrine
  • 100 articles related cultural engagement issues of today
  • 100 cultural background notes
  • 100 archeological notes
  • 550 Word Studies to explore key terms of the Bible
  • Profiles of 150 men and women in the Bible
  • Full-color maps, charts, and family trees
  • Book introductions, with outlines and reading plans
  • Topical indexes make it easy to find important topics in Scripture
  • Extensive cross-references drawing connections between texts
  • Concordance
  • And more…

The Evangelical Study Bible shares many features of other study Bibles, but puts them all together in a unique way. It would be a good go-to Bible if you’re serious about Bible study and want to understand the context of what you’re reading.
