Thomas Nelson, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, announces the publishing of the Maclaren Series: Large Print Verse-by-Verse Reference Bible (Thomas Nelson, 2021) in the New King James Version (NKJV) and the King James Version (KJV) Bible translations.
“The Maclaren Series presents the Bible in a beautiful format using a rich blue tone as a secondary color,” says Dr. Philip Nation, vice president and publisher of Bibles for Thomas Nelson. “With its name inspired by Alexander Maclaren, one of history’s greatest expository preachers, it’s my hope that readers will find joy and an ease of engagement with God’s Word.”
Born in 19th-century Glasgow, Scotland, Alexander Maclaren was an English preacher and contemporary of C. H. Spurgeon (sign up for the free email devotional, Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening on Bible Gateway) and F. B. Meyer, who said of Maclaren’s expository Bible preaching, “No other sermons were so widely read the world around…. Dr. Maclaren is said with truth to have changed the whole style of the British pulpit, and to have influenced it more (than) any of his predecessors.”
The Maclaren Series Large Print Reference Bibles, in either the KJV or NKJV, provide the tools needed to dive deeply into God’s Word with vital study resources while showcasing the beauty of the text in a classic verse-by-verse, line-matched format. Combined with a generous 10.5 size type in Thomas Nelson’s Comfort Print® font, the Maclaren Series creates an enjoyable and treasured experience in God’s truth. Features include:
