“A Bible of Biblical proportions”

There are a lot of different types and versions of the Bible and several translations. I myself have about 12 different types and versions of Bibles/study bibles, so why another one, why the Zonevan Study Bible. It is a great addition to have as a study Bible, but like most study Bibles it is comprehensive and a first rate addition even though i still use my other study bibles for different translations and context. The Bible text of this study Bible incorporates the 2011 NIV update, and information one expects such as full colour illustrations, maps (and index), charts and articles throughout as well as a concordance, There is nearly 20,000 all new verse by verse study notes. This study Bible has been well thought through with its editing. it is a great addition to have on your shelf for study. it is 2,890 page study Bible, so quite a large volume. however you do get free digital access for your study bible. For the student, general Bible user and your first purchase of a study Bible, The Zondervan NIV Study Bible is a welcome addition to your library.


“Great bible study book”

The book is big and is not for travellers but for home it's fantastic if you have a bible study group also for every individual book of the bible it's a introduction of who wrote and where as well , I'll find this very helpful along with plenty picture of where the story happened . Last important thing to say is that you can download an app to take this book with you .



Full of useful comments and brilliant photos, pictures and maps - highly recommended!


“Study Bible that's comprehensive in scope”

The number of study Bibles in the marketplace is growing almost exponentially. This latest one is up there among the best of the heavyweights. It's emphasis is on revealing the theological emphasis and of each Bible book which it does very well. This sets it apart from the already well
established NIV Study Bible which presents us with a systematic evangelical theology. But the Zondervan offering also has all the usual notes that explain historical and cultural background and offer interpretive insights.
The Bible text is the 2011 NIV update, and it has the usual NIV cross references and the excellent NIV concordance. The chief editor is evangelical scholar Don Carson whose painstaking oversight is evident throughout.
Like all Study Bibles, it is a great tool, but you have to know its limitations. It can't replace more thorough commentaries or theological tomes, but for a house group leader or occasional preacher, it goes a long way towards it. This would make a first rate addition to the shelves or any serious Bible student.
