The center column references and notes are indicated on the text by raised letters and numbers.

About the Cover and Binding:
This particular review is for the Hardcover edition, so this Bible has a very sturdy hard cover. Once you take the paper dust cover off this Bible you will see a Brown marbled finished cover. Very professional looking. The binding is a sewn binding which means the pages are sewn right into the Bible rather then being glued in, this enables a more sturdy Bible. All in all The NKJV Study Bible Full-Color Edition is very sturdy and will uphold everyday use!
Personally, I love The NKJV Study Bible Full-Color Edition it has many study tools! It works great for at-home in-depth study into God’s Word! I love the pictures and maps that this Bible has, it really takes you into that place. The way it shows you how people back then lived, is a wonderful feature!

I think this Bible will become one I will use a lot in my at-home Bible study. I give this Bible a 5 of 5 stars, and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an in-depth study Bible.
