This hard-cover Bible is illustrated in true Duck Commander style.  The jacket boasts the Duck Commander logo with a picturesque scene of a lake at the bottom.  Underneath the jacket, the cover is off white with wood grain.  The spine is brown with white lettering and the front also has the Duck Commander logo.   Inside the cover you will find a presentation page,  Phil and Al’s welcome, contents,  introduction of the editors, 52 days of what Phil and Al each have to say about their five core values divided into the five categories, Lifechangers index, 30 days of Lifechangers articles by Phil and Al, an explanation of the translation of the NKJV and then the actual Bible Scripture.  All throughout the Bible there are articles by the Roberson duo called “Set Your Sights” which are also based on their five core values, with the value of each article being in bold at the top.  At the end of each article is a section called “On The Hunt” which is a list of more scripture that coincides with the article.

In the back of the Bible is an index for the articles in “Set Your Sights” broken down in the topics such as anger, anxiety, belief, etc.  To finish it off there are articles or charts on, the ABC’s of Salvation, 30 days with Jesus, Ministry of Jesus, Parables of Jesus, and miracles of the Apostles. 

My opinion:
This is a beautifully illustrated Bible filled with articles by the Robertson duo, Phil and Al.  These articles are based on true experiences involving their family and their core values.  When I first started looking through the Bible for my review I read the first 20 days without even realizing it.  I am impressed with their willingness to share not only the good in their life experiences but also the not so good experiences.  This shows they are just as normal as the neighbor next door.  I loved how they turned these situations into glory and honor for God.  As for the Bible its self, I found it to be pretty typical of the NKJV.  To me the print was somewhat small especially for those of us who are older. 

All in all I would recommend this if you are looking for helps and articles that deal with everyday situations and life issues in general.  Also if you are a fan of the Robertson family this is a must-have.  It would be a great gift for the male in your life
