NKJV Greatest Stories of the Bible

This book review was done for Book Sneeze, the book review division of Thomas Nelson Book Publishing. I was not compensated for this review, but did receive a free copy of the book.

This hardback, collectible edition is a great family resource to have on hand. It is not a version of the Bible, but rather is a unique compilation of 250 best-known Bible stories. These stories are in fact excerpts of the Bible taken from the New King James Version. Each story gives the chapter of the Bible from which it was taken. The stories are in order from Genesis to Revelation and the book also includes a great table of contents at the beginning for easy reference.

I enjoyed reading through this book and found the easy format very conducive to reading a lot or a little at a time. It would be ideal for personal enjoyment, family devotions, or reading aloud to your children. The index at the back of the book makes it easy to find a story about a certain Bible character (i.e., Joshua or Moses) or a certain event (i.e., battle of Jericho or plagues).
