Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tops of all I've read  Jul 1, 2005
I have had a Nelson's KJV for some time now and really liked it . So I decided to try their NKJV study Bible ( complete Study System)
Let me just say it was one of the best choices I have made . The Clarity of having the hard to understand words already ACCURATELY translated is great.
The preludes before each book are very historically sound and detremental in mastering the interpretation of the scriptures in context of the times.The maps are also very educational to help understand not just when but where an event took place.
I really enjoyed the thorough annotations brought forth by not just a single person , but more than 40 well studied and educated theologians .The annotations reflect both the historical use of words and phrases ,and also the customs of the particular times and regions where the event is taking place , WITHOUT bias.
I am now going to order two more for personal friends who have several study helps and still consider this Bible to be a very good system of study in itself without outside resourses.
All this while still maintaining the integrity of the Authorized KJV in a much easier to understand format is why I consider this Bible to be a great resource for Bible study or personal growth .
Disappointed  Jun 30, 2005
When I needed a good NKJV study Bible, this seemed like the obvious choice. I've used The King James Study Bible by Thomas Nelson for a few years, and it's been extremely useful and informative. My wife uses The New Spirit Filled Bible (NKJV) which is also by Thomas Nelson. Those are the two Bibles I'll use in comparison to The Nelson Study Bible.

The strength of this Bible is in the annotations at the bottom of each page. Nearly every verse is expounded upon. While I can't fault the editors for being thorough, the sheer volume of the notes causes one to bypass them altogether, unless he has a question about a specific verse. This version does not have any form of The King James Study Bible's Doctrinal Footnotes to lead the reader through a systematic study of the Bible's teachings. Nor does it offer Personality Profiles or Archaeological Sites, as the KJV does.

This version does offer WordFocus Word Studies, which are very similar to Word Wealth offered in the New Spirit Filled Bible. In both versions, these are sprinkled throughout the text near relevant verses. Finding a particular word study is no problem in the Spirit Filled Bible, because there is an alphabetical listing of them at the front of the book. However, in this version the listing is not alphabetical, but instead lists them in the order they appear in the book, making it very difficult to find any particular word. The same is true of the listings for the "InDepth Articles," the "QuickView Charts," and the "InText Maps." How hard would it have been to list these alphabetically? The WordFocus studies are not even cross-referenced in the text as they are in the Spirit Filled Bible, so finding one occurance of a word won't help you find its word study.

Most Bibles have a section in the back where miscellaneous materials can be found. Things like a harmony of the Gospels, listings of the teachings of Christ, etc. This Bible does have many of these features, but they are spread randomly throughout the text. They are all listed in the tables of contents, but I've already described what a catastrophe those are.

Despite the claims that this Bible was years in the making, I feel it is basically shovel-ware. There is little organization, and the features that are included are not easy to find. If bottom-of-the-page annotations are what you're after, this Bible offers lots of them. But if you're looking for comprehensive study features similar to those in The King James Study Bible, keep looking. That's what I'm going to do.
One of the worst I own  Apr 1, 2005
The content of the Nelson Study Bible is analogous to its binding. It looks great, but after a little use, it falls apart.

Some of the graphics in this Bible are excellent. The frequent maps are helpful and the diagrams really explain the text. The page layout is clear and neat. The cross-references are thorough and have some fun features.

But the annotations are awful. The annotators either ignore, or are unaware of, modern scholarship. The introduction to Genesis reads, "Genesis was written and compiled by Moses in the Wilderness of Sinai" (p. 1), ignoring source criticism. Song of Songs is "a moving love story about a young country girl and King Solomon" (p. 1097), ignoring the difficulties in interpretating this text. The annotations are padded with paraphrastic summary, and when they give information they tend to enter polemics ("Mary was blessed because she received God's grace, not because she bestowed it" [p. 1686]) or excuses ("The apostles did not take Jesus' words to mean that they had the power to forgive sins" [p. 1808]).

Some of the features are superfluous. The "WordFocus" studies highlight words in Greek or Hebrew and give them lengthy explanations. This reflects an unfortunate Evangelical trend where people ignorant of Greek or Hebrew do "word study" with a lexicon. This leads to invalid doctrinal conclusions (cf. D. A. Carson's "Exegetical Fallacies").

Some of the charts are great, but most are not. For example, see "Isaiah: A Bible in Miniature?" (p. 1144). Here we learn that Isaiah has "66 chapters" while the Bible has "66 books." Entertaining, but a waste of space.

Dr. Radmacher's essay on how to read the Bible is poor. The essay works from his premise, "meaning is singular" (p. xiii), which is not an historical Christian way of approaching the Bible. This "fundamentalist" approach is a disservice to both Fundamentalists and others.

Finally, the binding: some of the pages fell out of the back after a year.

If you want an explicitely Protestant study Bible, there are a host of others. Keep looking.
Incredible  Sep 27, 2004
I first bought a Nelson Study Bible five years ago and over this period of time it has played an integral part in the development of my understanding of the Bible and more importantly, of God. I have never seen such detailed, historically valid, and readable commentary in any other study Bible; I haven't seen anything even get close.

The commentary was written and edited by 40 contributors with doctorial degrees in theology from seminaries all over the nation (five from Dallas Theological Seminary), and is nothing short of astonishing to look at and read. The focus is on the historical background behind the text of the Bible, which enables the reader to more fully understand some of the more difficult passages in scripture, especially those concerning symbolism and prophesies and laws in the Old Testament. There are graphs, charts, and summaries sprinkled throughout the book, along with detailed introductions to each book explaining the basics of what circumstances it was written under. In addition to all of this there are "Word Focus" sections that examine words in the original language that they were written in so that we can have better understanding of the English translation.

This Study Bible is written in such a way that it is great for both those who have known the Bible all their lives, and those who have never picked one up before but would like to.

I have bought five more of these Bibles since my first, for friends, and for myself as I love the commentary so much I have worn two Bibles out over this span. If I could give this six stars, I would- and if I had the money and ability to purchase one of these for every person who browsed this page, I would.

Buying this Study Bible is money well spent and with time invested in reading it you will gain a new and deeper understanding of God and his love for you.
Excellent Price , assumptive in doctrinal inserts.  Mar 20, 2004
Publisher assumes all readers follow the trinitarian viewpoint of the Godhead(three distinct persons). I enjoy the NKJV translation and easy to read type in this printing by Nelson. Publication would have been better without the doctrinal viewpoint inserts throughout.
