[Note:  This book was received free of charge from Thomas Nelson in exchange for an honest review.]

I have many Bibles in my personal library, and many of them are study bibles.  The NKJV Know the Word Study Bible is similar in format and scope to others I own.  The study notes for the verses are helpful, and assist the reader in learning more about a particular passage.

This particular study bible touts that one can learn the Bible book by book, verse by verse, or topic by topic.  As previously stated there are footnotes that assist the reader in understanding passages.  The book summaries at the beginning or a book are helpful as they give highlights of the book and the passages that correspond with it.  This Study Bible also has articles on 21 topics spread throughout the Bible, and each topic has 5-7 articles that correspond with it.

Overall this Study Bible is much smaller than others that I own.  The notes it contains are not as detailed, and the topical articles are fairly short.  The paper is also a lot thinner than other Bibles I own.  This could be a concern for someone who is not using care when turning the page.  This study Bible is good for the new believer, or someone who is new to what study Bibles have to offer.
