Bible Review #4 NKJV Woman's Study Bible
First sentence: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
I bought this one when the physical Lifeway stores were closing and everything (yes, everything) was being clearanced out. It was a bittersweet time. On the one hand, I bought probably four or five Bibles that I wouldn't have gotten otherwise. On the other hand, not much time goes by--a week, perhaps two or three--where I don't MISS Lifeway and wish that they were still open.
I had an earlier edition of the Woman's Study Bible in the NKJV that came out in the 1990s. It drove me CRAZY because the text was broken down into syllables. I HATE, HATE, HATE that "special feature." That was my reasoning as to why I "needed" this one. (The fact that it was clearanced certainly helped.)
I started this Bible at the end of March 2020. I finished it in mid-May 2020.
I wouldn't mind the weight of the Bible IF the weight was justified by actual large print.
It is red letter.
The layout is beautiful--absolutely beautiful. But it is impractical to have a beautiful bible with notes so impossible to utilize.
I didn't notice much bleed through in the pages.
