I have received a beautiful copy of the NKJV Holman Study Bible from B & H publishing. It reminds me somehow of a little Bible my friend used to carry in her purse when we were children. It is wonderful to see photos of actual places that are mentioned in the Bible. There are plenty of maps and great study guides and reference material. But it is much more. Here is a quote from the actual website.
"Holman Bible Publishers is excited to present the Holman Study Bible: NKJV Edition, a new edition modeled after its own 2011 ECPA Christian Book Award-winning HCSB Study Bible,
where every well-conceived study help is practically placed on the same
page spread as the related biblical text. It also features 15,000 study
notes, 141 photos, 62 timelines, 59 maps, 40-page concordance, 20
articles and essays on practical and theological issues, 16
illustrations and reconstructions, and 15 charts.
Other details of the Holman Study Bible: NKJV Edition include
a two-column text setting, center-column cross references, the words of
Christ in red type, extensive book introductions, one- and three-year
Bible reading plans, a notes section, four-color presentation page and
family records section, and two-piece die-cut gift box.
All study features throughout the Holman Study Bible: NKJV Edition are designed to put the emphasis where it must be – on making the Scriptures, God’s written Word, clear and understandable."
