NKJV Encountering God Study Bible – Bible Review

Have you ever wondered why some people thrive in their relationship with God while others struggle to grow and connect?

One of the biggest differences between the two groups is how they read the Bible. If you want to grow in your relationship with God, you need to read the Bible relationally. You need to seek to learn about the person, character and heart of God!

Finding the right Bible to help you do this can be challenging. That’s why I’m excited to introduce you to the Encountering God Study Bible, published by Thomas Nelson Bibles. This Bible features supplemental materials from Henry Blackaby and his family that’s designed to help you draw closer to God by encountering Him through His Word!

Encountering God Study Bibles - 4 Formats

The Encountering God Study Bible – written in the New King James Version translation – comes in several different format options. I was thrilled to receive the Black Leathersoft edition for review. This edition comes encased in a slip cover and is elegant in its design. There is a gold embossed tree of life on the front of the cover and honestly, the Bible looks and feels like real leather to me!

What I like most about this Bible is its interior design. The various types of featured content are woven into the Bible in such a way that they are not intrusive. The study aids complement the Bible text without overshadowing it. I particularly like the Encounter Notes which provide spiritual nourishment to ponder on throughout the day!

A Peek Inside The Encountering God Study Bible

The Bible is designed in a 2-column format with reference verses down the middle. It’s printed on white paper with black text with red lettering for the words of Jesus. While I would not have minded a little color on the pages for aesthetics, this Bible lends itself to highlighting what’s important to you. It’s not designed for note-taking, however, as the margins are not wide enough for that purpose.

Here are the specific features you’ll find inside of this Bible:

  • Encounter Notes highlighting how God might encounter you in His Word
  • Articles highlighting God and the lasting truths of the faith
  • Notes clarifying the ideas, events, people, and places in the text
  • Word studies, character studies and biographical sketches
  • Notes to help you navigate current cultural issues
  • Book introductions highlighting its importance for encountering God
  • Timeline of the biblical narrative
  • A succinct harmony of the Gospels
  • Chart of the prophecies fulfilled by Jesus as Messiah
  • Clear and readable NKJV Comfort Print(R) in a 9-point print size

Whether you’re looking for a new Bible to help you encounter God on a daily basis or you’re seeking a special gift for a loved one, you can’t go wrong with the Encountering God Study Bible.

I rate this Bible 5 out of 5 stars.
