    From my initial view of this book, it appears to be more for the Bible Teacher or the Pastor. Although a huge setback for this type of bible is that it lacks cross-references, which every Bible Teacher and Pastor should have in a Bible they use. There is a generous concordance and well put together index. There are also 2 ribbon markers which is very handy when studying and cross-referencing. The font is small enough to read yet large enough for this bible to be quite heavy and not one you would From my initial view of this book, it appears to be more for the Bible Teacher or the Pastor.

The font is small enough to read yet large enough for this bible to be quite heavy and not one you would want to carry around too often. There are no study notes found in this bible but rather articles to assist in preaching certain passages. There are also Presenting the Message, Living the Message, Applying the Message, and Discerning the Meaning excerpts found throughout the bible that assist in preparing a sermon and living out that sermon. I really enjoy the excerpts because it makes it clear that teachers and preachers of the Word are not just to teach and preach the Word of God but to live the Word of God and give tips for practical application of the Word so that others can live out the Word as well. As with most bibles, there are book introductions and outlines as well as section headers. {FYI: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my HONEST opinion.}

    I had the delightful privilege of reviewing another new Bible. This one is Vine’s Expository Bible. I thought it would be similar and have some of the same features as Vine’s Expositiory Dictionary of New/Old Testament words. But it wasn’t anything like that. It was a little disappointing. But first, what I like about the study Bible. It has two ribbon bookmarks. I know, I know. Big deal right, but to me it is a big deal. I am always losing bookmarks and I hate to stuff my Bibles full of paper beca I had the delightful privilege of reviewing another new Bible. This one is Vine’s Expository Bible.

But first, what I like about the study Bible. It has two ribbon bookmarks. I know, I know. Big deal right, but to me it is a big deal. I am always losing bookmarks and I hate to stuff my Bibles full of paper because that can damage the spine. When I study I’m flipping through different books and chapters quite a bit, so two bookmarks that can’t be removed and lost is perfect. Another thing, the cover. It’s beautiful in it’s simplicity, but not feminine or girly. It’s beautiful in a way that a man would not be embarrassed to carry it but neither would a lady. Now to be honest, the beauty ends with the dust jacket. The hardback is covered in a nice red fabric but it is boringly plain. Now for the inside. The pictures above show you some of the features and special notes. In addition to those, there are 66 (of course) book introductions, 148 Living the Message articles, 205 Presenting the Message, 237 Applying The Message, and 311 Discerning the meaning. These are articles and/or word studies. Those are all very nice, I’m sure but I don’t read them. In fact, I did not read any of those at all. Why? The font size is too small. It says “Easy to read 10.5-point type”. Can I just say, 10.5-point type is not big. Because the Bible is hardback it’s a bit heavy, too heavy for me to hold comfortably in one hand, and too heavy for me to hold it close enough to read easily. Since I’ve started on the difficult parts, I’ll move into what I didn’t like. The font…it’s just small. Very small. Miniscule really. Even with the small font size, the Bible is thick, and heavy. This is not a study Bible you can easily carry around with you, but it would be a great one to study while you’re sitting at your desk. I would rather each verse start on a new line, instead of in a paragraph. The above picture shows another pet peeve of mine. I just really don’t like when the text is broken for personal notes. I don’t like it when I’m reading, turn the page and expect to finish it on the next page only I can’t because this is there. Put things like this in one place, beginning, middle, or end of the Bible but not in the middle. All-in-all, it’s good resource and would be a great addition to your study library. If you’re looking for a new study Bible, and like the New King James Version, you should check out this one. I received a free copy of this Bible from Thomas Nelson and their review program. This was given in exchange for an honest review. All opinions in this review are my own. I did not have to give a favorable review. As always I encourage my readers to check out the book to decide for themselves.

    I read a story one time, about a minister who was engaged in conversation with a good friend. His friend was asking him about his sermons, and the minister replied, “Well, I study all week for my sermon. And when I get into the pulpit, the sermon I prepared is a good sermon. Then I start preaching, and it doesn’t sound anything like what I prepared . . . but it’s a better sermon. Now, if you want to hear a really good sermon, walk home with me of a Sunday evening, and I’ll tell you what I should I read a story one time, about a minister who was engaged in conversation with a good friend. His friend was asking him about his sermons, and the minister replied, “Well, I study all week for my sermon. And when I get into the pulpit, the sermon I prepared is a good sermon. Then I start preaching, and it doesn’t sound anything like what I prepared . . . but it’s a better sermon. Now, if you want to hear a really good sermon, walk home with me of a Sunday evening, and I’ll tell you what I should have said.” That . . . in a nutshell . . . is what you have in your hands when you open THE VINE’S EXPOSITORY BIBLE. You have over 60 years of blood, sweat and tears in the service of the Lord, distilled and distributed throughout the text of the Old and New Testaments. The New King James Version enables the reader to engage the Biblical text without the sometimes confusing language of the KJV, while still remaining faithful to the Authorized Version. To this text Pastor Dr. Jerry Vines brings his magnum opus; 24 years worth of expository messages, from every book of the Bible, delivered from the pulpit of the First Baptist Church of Jacksonville, Florida. Pastor Vines introduces each book, providing an explanation of the authorship, date, outline, and major themes of the book. Then as the reader progresses through the Bible, Paster Vines provides numerous helps (I consider them “gems,” personally!): Expository Messages (“PRESENTING THE MESSAGE”), word studies (“DISCERNING THE MEANING,”) application (“APPLYING THE MESSAGE”), and personal application and growth (“LIVING THE MESSAGE.”) This may seem “complicated” in this review, but in actuality it is practically seamless. These “gems” are strategically placed throughout the text, so that God’s Word remains central. The helps are actually in the right place; no flipping back and forth, no myriad cross references to distract you. It’s the closest thing to “total immersion” in Scripture reading that I’ve come across in a study Bible. The maps are full-color, and the one on Jesus’ Ministry is especially interesting, with “text ballons” showing where various incidents in Jesus’ ministry took place, geographically. Also included is a very nice (not exhaustive, but nice) concordance, and the Expository Bible Index, which will help the reader find all of the “gems” that are scattered throughout the VINE’S EXPOSITORY BIBLE. If I don’t meet Pastor Dr. Jerry Vines in this life, I’ll certainly be looking him up in the next. I mean, after over 60 years in the ministry, the man is working on his PhD at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. For fun. I want to meet this man!

    Overall, the NKJV Vines Expository Bible by Thomas Nelson is a really nice Bible. The copy that I am reviewing is the hardcover version. It really feels pretty good in the hand and has a nice size to it. The print is nice and large and easy to see at about a 10.5 point font for the Scripture text and a 9 point font for the study notes. It is very readable. This is not what I would classify as a Study Bible as it doesn't have the typical study tools like cross-references or study notes at the bott Overall, the NKJV Vines Expository Bible by Thomas Nelson is a really nice Bible. The copy that I am reviewing is the hardcover version. It really feels pretty good in the hand and has a nice size to it. The print is nice and large and easy to see at about a 10.5 point font for the Scripture text and a 9 point font for the study notes. It is very readable. This is not what I would classify as a Study Bible as it doesn't have the typical study tools like cross-references or study notes at the bottom of the pages. Rather, Thomas Nelson took the expository sermons that Pastor Jerry Vines preached over his 24 years as pastor at First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida and adapted them into articles and outlines for this Bible. Those sermons were Pastor Vines' exposition that covered every book in the Bible. With tools such as Book Introductions and key word studies, there are some nice study notes in this Bible. Also, there are a lot of articles about applying the message and living that message based on his expository sermons. All of these articles and tools provide you with a way to help you apply the Word to your life and live it out. They are very helpful. They also provide over 200 of Pastor Vines' expository sermon outlines in sections entitled "Presenting the Message". I find these to be excellent articles relating to the portion of Scripture they are covering. Think of it as a "sermon-lite" if you will. While I have not read every one yet, the ones I have read are written very well and are solid. I do like the tools contained in this Bible - while not as abundant as a typical Study Bible, they are well designed and easy to follow. Overall, I would say that if you enjoy the sermons of Pastor Jerry Vines or lean more toward a Baptist background, then this Bible should be fairly high on your list to get. It is very well written and the design and layout are very pleasing. I would recommend this Bible for sure. If you are looking for a Study Bible that has notes on every single page geared toward the text on that page, then this is not the Bible you are looking for. However, if you are looking for an NKJV Bible that has some really good (and solid) commentary from a Baptist background to help you learn and apply God's Word to your life, then I would highly recommend this Bible for you. I received a copy of this Bible in exchange for this review from Thomas Nelson and all opinions are my own.

The Bible features a nice selection of expository devotions by the Baptist pastor Jerry Vines that are interspersed throughout the book. Vines’ commentary is insightful and astute. Reading Vines’ devotions feels like listening to sermons; I especially liked his commentary on the permanency of love. Aside from Vines’ exposition, the Bible also includes other helpful elements, such as a thorough index and eight colorful pages of relevant maps. I received this book for review.

    I received a complimentary copy. A Bible is both beautiful and sometimes very difficult to read or understand. The options out there are endless and there are so many different meanings or styles that a reader can use from them. I feel like if you sway towards the authors religious views and have been taught that way of thinking, then this book is going to be a huge way to get your faith on.
