The Open Bible

"The Open Bible" is a New King James Version Bible that has so many little extra features, you will absolutely love it! This Bible has a large index to help you find whatever topics you might be looking for, which is wonderful for those of us who like to read Scripture that is related to what is going on in our lives at the time. The Open Bible also offers several colorful maps the help the reader understand the geography of the times. There is also a Visual Survey of the Bible that appears between the Old and New Testament, which helps give a visual overview of the Bible, its writers and key figures.

What I really loved most about this Bible is the introduction pages of each chapter. The Open Bible begins each chapter with a few pages designed to give you an overview of the chapter, such as who wrote the chapter, what the date rage of the chapter is, key verses, as well as an actual outline of each chapter, broken down. This is such a helpful tool in really understanding each chapter, because it gives you some context as to what was going on at the time, who was writing it, and what themes are in the chapter.

I thought this Bible was absolutely wonderful. I am so excited to have it to use as a companion with another version. I would highly recommend this book to people who desire a traditional translation of the Bible, but enjoy the more in-depth details that this Bible offers.
