Book Description

Special interest areas, such as character study, archaeology and personal application, are coded for easy navigation. The words of Christ are featured in red.

Introductions and outlines provide valuable background information for each book of the Bible

In-text maps, charts, diagrams, and illustrations visually clarify the stories in the Bible

8.9pt / 9.25pt text

More about the translation:

This revised and updated edition of the NIV includes three main types of change, taking into account changes in the way we use language day to day; advances in biblical scholarship and understanding; and the need to ensure that gender accurate language is used, to faithfully reflect whether men and women are referred to in each instance. The translators have carefully assessed a huge body of scholarship, as well as inviting peer submissions, in order to review every word of the existing NIV to ensure it remains as clear and relevant today as when it was first published.

Royalties from all sales of the NIV Bible help Biblica, formerly the International Bible Society, in their work of translating and distributing Bibles around the world.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is an American version 26 Nov 2012
By faj
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this expecting an updated version of my English NIV Study Bible, but found on arrival that this is the American English version, with American spelling and e.g. 'rooster' instead of 'cockerel'. It does look very good, (although I think I prefered the old style) but only if you're happy with American English. I'm not, so am returning it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good buy for those who wish to study the Bible 10 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
An excellent study Bible, even comes with maps, charts, an index of topics and of notes as well as a concordance of 4795 word entries and nearly 36,000 scripture references. Though some of the print in these is a little smaller than the main Bible, if they had been any bigger the Bible would be to heavy to lift, be warned this is a very big Bible, but worth every penny if you want to study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Study Bible! 4 Feb 2012
By 81641
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am absolutely thrilled with my new NIV Leather Study Bible. All credit to Amazon for the delivery, which was two days before the due date. I've only had a chance to glance at it so far, but what I see is terrific. I was a bit concerned about the fact that it was thumb indexed since I usually avoid that kind of Bible, but with a tome this size it certainly is very useful.

The Bible itself feels good in your hands, although i doubt anyone would really want to use it that way. It lies flat on the desk as indicated. The pages are good quality paper. It is beautifully enhanced with full colour charts, maps and diagrams, etc. The topical index is superb, as is the concordance. All in all, this is one of (if not) the best study Bible around. (I could say a little about the ESV Study Bible by comparison, but i dislike the awkwardness of the ESV text and it would turn out to be a diatribe!)

After a period of time I will amend and update these comments with something a little more coherent!

Thanks for reading!

3.0 out of 5 stars NIV Study Bible 7 Feb 2013
By Wallman
It is quite difficult to give a star rating for this study bible. In many ways it is excellent, and probably the best study bible available, but it has some features which some readers will find problematic.
On the plus side, the NIV is easy to read, stylistically good, preserving something of the feel of the Authorised Version, and most people, familiar with the original languages, seem to regard it as an accurate translation. The notes are extensive and very clear. I also find them very well pitched, explaining things, when needed. I have also used most of the various other tools included, and have found them helpful.
The issues, that some readers might have, arise from the NIV being a very conservative translation. In places, this leads the translators to "correct" their translation of the original languages to remove contradictions with other parts of the bible. This can lead to a significant change in meaning from the original text, and unfortunately these instances are not flagged up. Wherever there are possible contradictions in the original text, I think it should be noted.
Additionally, where the New Testament quotes the Old Testament, there are often differences between the Hebrew original and the New Testament quotation, which tends to follow a Greek translation of the Old Testament, known as the Septuagint. Where there are Hebrew documents, which agree with the version appearing in the New Testament, the NIV usually follows that text, even if the textual evidence would normally be regarded as poor. This seems to be generally done without any note explaining the action taken. It would be preferable, I think, if the NIV gave the natural translation as the main translation, with any comments in a footnote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious Technicolour 21 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If like me you are a fan of the Study Bible but it was getting worn out and falling apart by over-use, then this is the book for you. It builds on the previous black and white edition with the addition of colour plates throughout the text as well as more use of colour in the text. It is a considerable improvement and adds a further level to your studies. I bought the hardback version but the is a leather bound version for those who like the more expensive option. The size would put me off personally, which is why I opted for this version

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 16 Mar 2012
Format:Leather Bound|Verified Purchase
Received my leather-bound edition today and it's really excellent. The new NIV text is good, but the way this study Bible is presented and illustrated really is top notch. I would recommend it for anyone serious about their Bible study or training as I am to be a Methodist Local Preacher.

4.0 out of 5 stars study bible 25 April 2012
By katie
Format:Leather Bound|Verified Purchase
My bible arrived promptly although I had been warned that I might have a bit of a wait as it was out of stock. The leather cover and silver edges of the pages make it a very handsome possesion, I love how it feels! As a study bible I have found it easy to use and keep finding more useful things about it than I first realised. However I have seen a friends study bible that I think is clearer with the study notes being more helpful so I have only given 4 stars rather than 5.
