Apply the Word Study Bible (NKJV)

Apply the Word Study Bible (NKJV) is a easy to use study Bible in the New King James version.  This Bible has the poetry and beauty of the wording of the old style King James but in an easier to understand modern wording.  I liked the way that there is further research and/or instruction of the scripture right there on the same page and rather than simply putting a notation number or letter beside the verse there is topping the application notes a highlighted title along with the scripture that it goes with on the same page.  These further explain culture or what a certain word means in Hebrew, or why they wore what they wore, or why a law was enacted, etc..   Footnotes still appear at the bottom of the page as we are used to.   Timelines are included as useful.    Each book is prefaced with a description of what was happening during the time of the writing as well as what to look for in the book as you read it.  Colorful maps are positioned at the back of the Bible as we are used to but also interspersed within the text there are smaller maps so that the reader is consistently informed of where the action is taking place.  There is also a small concordance in the back of the Bible  though a larger one is still necessary to truly study this Bible as any Bible would require.  This Bible would be a good one to use for any study as well as daily Bible reading.  What I really think this Bible would be a good one for is a read through the Bible cover to cover Bible since it contains references to tell the reader where each book relates to another book in time passage. 
I would recommend this Bible for any person of any reading age.  It is probably written at middle school and above level. 
I received this book from Booksneeze for this review.
