Why I Choose this Book:

It looked nice and like something I could learn from.

What I Thought about this Book:

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got the Bible. This year I’ve been using a Woman’s Study Bible, so I think subconsciously I was comparing the two, and yet they’re quite different.

Some of My Favorite Features in Know the Word Study Bible:

  • The way it’s set up is pretty cool. It has various topics that it talks about Purpose or God the Holy Spirit, or Love, etc…. And then there are boxes throughout the Bible where that topic is discussed. In a way it kinda reminds me of a treasure hunt, because at the end of each box it tells where in the Bible the next box on that subject is. That’s probably one of my favorite parts.
  • At the beginning of each book it gives a Summary of what the book is about, some ideas of how to study that particular book, and then highlights to look for as you’re studying.
  • There are a lot of “footnotes” for various verses. These are interesting and help either explain what the verses meant in the context of the culture, or sometimes they talk about what word was used in the original language, or sometimes they tie that verse into another verse.
  • The “Study the Book” sections are pretty cool because the are sprinkled all throughout each book and talk about that book in particular.

What I didn’t Particularly like:

  • I’ve only had this study Bible for a short amount of time so I haven’t been able to read a ton, but there are a few little things here in there in the commentary that I don’t fully agree with. That’s not an issue for me because the commentary isn’t inspired – it’s just written by humans, therefore I don’t expect to agree with all of it.

 

Conclusion:

So far I’m enjoying what I’ve been learning while diving deeper into the Word. This seems like it would be a good book especially for beginners when it comes to studying the Bible. The commentaries are easy to understand and clearly laid out.

Rating: 

I’m giving Know the Word Study Bible 4 out of 5 stars, and 8 out of 10. (Please note, I’m rating the study part of the Bible, as well as the layout, obviously not God’s Word itself.)

*I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for an honest review
