On Sensationalism

I’ve had the privilege of working with junior and senior high kids at the annual Lighthouse Young Writers Summer Camp. The cool thing about teaching at summer camp is you get to teach, encourage kids with their writing, and never have to grade a thing. It’s really the way teaching should be. But I’ll save […]

Publisher: Thomas Nelson/HarperCollins Christian Publishing, October 21, 2014.Genre: Bible.Format: Hardcover.Pages: 2496.Rating: 5 Stars for Excellent.Source: Free hardcover Bible from Thomas Nelson and Book Look Bloggers for the purpose of review. Available at Amazon, Christian Book.Link for a preview of Bible: NKJV Study Bible. Summary:Thomas Nelson has published a New King James Version Full- Color edition Study Bible.Features of the Bible:A section titled: How To Understand What The Bible Means By What It Says.114 Articles.155 Bible Times And Culture Notes.85 Charts and Diagrams.75 In-Text Maps.346 Word Studies.Introductory chapter for each book of the Bible.Double column.Reference notes in the center margin highlighted in light gray.Explanatory notes located at the bottom of each Scripture page.Table of Monies, Weights, and Measures.Teachings and Illustrations of Christ-3 pages in length.Prophecies of the Messiah Fulfilled in Jesus Christ-6 pages in length.The Parables of Jesus Christ-a list of 39.The Miracles of Jesus Christ-a list of 37.Prayers of the Bible.Subject Index to Annotations and Features-25 pages.Concordance-194 pages.Map Index and Maps-4 pages.Maps-17.Ability to receive a free download.My Thoughts:Over-all I love this Bible. I have began reading it for daily Bible reading, Sunday worship service, and Bible Study Fellowship. What I have not found out is the type size and font name. I wanted to be able to give this information in the review but it is not available. In comparing this Bible to another new edition NKJV Full-Color Study Bible by Holman (reviewed earlier this year). I noticed four things quickly:The Holman Bible has bold block print all through the Bible; on the other hand, the Thomas Nelson Bible is not bold print and a bit harder to read. The Thomas Nelson Scripture words are a little larger, but the bold print in the Holman Bible makes it easier to read. The Thomas Nelson Bible is slightly smaller as compared to the Holman Bible. If you are a person who writes in the margin of your Bible, the Thomas Nelson Bible has only about a quarter of an inch on the side margin. In the Holman Bible there is a half inch on the side margin. The Holman Bible is a red-letter edition, this means the words of Christ are in red. The Thomas Nelson Bible does not have the words of Christ in red. The Thomas Nelson Bible has more supplemental study information. This includes more maps, illustrations, and articles. Both Bibles are solid well-built Bibles. Both Bibles have strong pages, especially the Thomas Nelson--the pages are easy to grip.I love both study Bibles and recommend both of them. Bibles are personal and each individual must choose the Bible that will not sit on a shelf to gather dust; but be read and studied and treasured."Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You." Psalm 119:11. NKJV.

deep mystery

Comparison is the thief of joyand I've been robbed many timesSo much life has passed by melike water under the bridge it won’t come backIt moves down to the sea where it is lost foreverand I am stuck here on the bankToo old for the young girls and too young for the oldI’ve sat at their tables and I didn’t belongIt made me long for something moreIt makes me long for homeor at least the same face every eveningwhere we know we belongand our lives are rolled togetherlike two verses of a songwhere the chorus brings us togetherLike rain on the sea we are joined togetherin a deep mysteryhallelejah
