Holman has gone and done something that that is sure to make a lot of Bible journaler’s happy – they’ve licensed Crossway’s Journal Bible design to produce their very own journaling Bible in some of today’s top translations – the HCSB, NJKV, and KJV. It has a few differences. Some very good. Some not so good (depending on your point of view). In this Bible review I take a look at the NKJV edition. Cover and Binding – Bonded Leather Over Board The cover is bonded leather over board. I’m not sure if it is, but it looks and...Read More

Pros Soft cover Sewn binding Large print Wide margins Cons Inner margin too narrow Not enough resources Ministry helps contain bias Features KJV Top Grain Cow Hide Smyth sewn White paper 11 point font Double column Verse format Wide margin End of verse references End of verse...Read More
