My Thoughts:
This Bible is a great asset for any library. The complete text NKJV in chronological order. Meaning the books or passages of Scripture are inserted based on the time period they  were written, not the order of the books themselves. For example: Palms are inserted into David's story,  the prophets at the time they prophesied in Kings and Chronicles, and Paul's letters to the churches with the churches they were written to.

The imitation leather binding makes it easy to handle - my personal favorite type of cover. It contains a lot of historical facts intertwined with the Biblical accounts, as well  as, legends, myths, traditions, beliefs from those time periods. There are time charts, time lines,  maps, and illustrations interspersed. The back has a Bible reading plan, concordance, and a glossary.

I really enjoyed browsing through this Bible. And plan on reading it thoroughly this summer. There were a couple of things (from the human standpoint not scripture) that I may   see eye to eye on concerning dates, etc. But since those things vary a bit based on opinion, it is not a huge concern. In the beginning,I was also a bit distracted by all the inserts of historical information, but the number of inserted material varies according to what part of the Bible you are reading in. Overall, I really like the content. This is a historical study Bible though, not a Scripture explanation. It mostly addresses historical information, and doesn't not explain meaning of verses, hard to understand passages, or other questions about the meaning of verses. The study part is from a historical perspective.

I received this Bible from booklook in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
