I am constantly expanding my resource material library, which includes: Bibles, journals, devotionals, inspirational quotes, uplifting music and more. When the opportunity to review this newly updated NIV Study Bible was offered, I immediately said yes.
This is the most colorful and beautifully illustrated Bible that I have ever owned! The full color pages, maps, charts and chapter introductions are not only informative, but they are also aesthetically pleasing to read.
This NIV Study Bible is a hard cover copy, that is easy to read and follow and makes a great addition to your ever growing inspirational resource library. Reading the scriptures and understanding their meaning is no longer difficult to understand. Note: Some of the scriptures have been removed (due to repetition of similar scriptures in other books/chapters) and placed in the cross reference section. Ex: part a or b of a scripture is printed and the other referenced.
