Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 28, 2018 – Many things have changed in the last two-thousand years—but the good news of Jesus Christ isn’t one of them.

The NKJV Ancient-Modern Bible is an opportunity for readers to experience the Word of God with fresh eyes, as members of the global and historical community of faith.

A Bible that has been two thousand years in the making, the NKJV Ancient-Modern Bible features all-new book introductions, articles, and commentary from voices both ancient and modern to help readers experience the Word of God as never before. Read the Bible alongside Augustine, Luther, Graham, and others—and discover the rich wisdom of ages past and present, which is the rightful inheritance of every follower of Christ.

“Christians are members of a unique community with a unique text,” says Daniel Marrs, publisher, Thomas Nelson Bible Group. “The church and the Bible are at once ancient and modern, sacred and everyday. The NKJV Ancient-Modern Bible uniquely embodies those realities, through both design and content. Beautiful modern typography and design standards blend seamlessly with sacred art and the insights of Christian thinkers, both past and present, to create a Bible that presents Scripture as holy and unique while speaking accessibly to today’s Christian.”

Features of the NKJV Ancient-Modern Bible include:

  • Full-color design that uniquely blends cutting edge modern typography and layout with traditional, sacred elements
  • Bible commentary from church thinkers of the past and present, from Huss to Keller, from Chrysostom to Spurgeon, from Aquinas to Wright
  • Biographies of church leaders and thinkers
  • Doctrine and history articles on significant councils, creeds, and controversies
