Here's my review of this beautiful Bible:
First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Thomas Nelson for sending me a copy of "The NKJV Women's Study Bible" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
NKJV Women’s Study Bible is not only a beautiful, full color version of the Scriptures.  There are many helps in this valuable resource to enhance your study and quiet time with Jesus.  I used this Bible as my primary source for my personal quiet time as well as a post personal study review source for my BSF (Bible Study Fellowship) study of the Gospel of John.
The all-color interiors make headings and special information boxes *pop*!  This can greatly enhance your study if you’re looking to supplement your Scripture reading with contemporary application.   I thought that this Bible may have been a bit too colorful and distracting to help me actually study the Word, but here is an instance I experienced where the exact opposite happened:
I went to a passage of Scripture and read it.  I was still a bit confused about the meaning so I prayerfully went to the index of the special tools in the back of the Bible before the concordance.  I looked up the topic of my confusion and discovered an article about that very subject in another book of the Bible.  I went to the article and read it and all the Scripture references it cited.  I was blown away that the Scripture references addressed the very point of my confusion and cleared up my thinking.  I will totally recommend prayerful use of this Bible!
