The student NIV Bible is a must have for all students of the Bible. I have quite a few Bibles as I find it quite difficult to enjoy reading the Bible and that is mainly due to not understanding it! The student Bible is great in that it has lots of very helpful quotes and it also gives great examples of how the Old and New testament intertwine. I love this Bible and out of all the Bibles I own this is the one that I carry with me. I have had several people buy this particular edition as a result of me showing my copy to them! I highly recommend this edition to anyone who is serious about understanding the Bible in modern day language.

Great first Bible 4 Mar. 2012
By Wayno Guerrini - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Okay, so I am an old guy. I have used the NIV Student Version for 20 years. But now I need a larger print edition, since my eyesight does not have the acuity it once did.

Introductions to the chapters, and the questions through out the pages, make you stop and think. This has served me well for two decades.

Argue translations if you must, but this just works. It is simple. Easy to read. If you want something more complex, try the NIV Study Bible.

If I were buying a Bible for someone new to the faith, this would be the one I'd buy and would recommend.

It has in all respects, been "an old friend."

Great NIV Version 1 Oct. 2011
By Kassiah Faul - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent copy of the NIV version of the Bible, featuring three Tracks for reading the Bible, from an introduction to reading every word. In addition to the text, each chapter has a great introduction as well as high points and people you'll meet within that particular Book. I gave this to my son (who is 16) to see what he thought of it, and he said he really liked the layout. The questions and highlights were things that were relevant to him--not patronizing or judgmental. He also really liked the Table of Weights and Measures and the Glossary of People and Places at the end. I found the text size easy to read and the graphics were simplistic and not at all overpowering. I would definitely buy this Bible for my teenagers and any young adult.

Great for Teens 12 Nov. 2012
By Kalt - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Who should get this Bible:
If you're a fan of the new NIV (2011 update) and want a Bible with basic study notes, this is great! It provides three reading plan ideas to help people work through Scripture. It also provides a brief topical index and maps in the back for further study. My favorite part is Yancey's guided tour through Scripture. Instead of leaving comments on EVERY verse in Scripture, he hits the highlights. It's like being on a tour with someone who's seen the scenery before and wants to point out the very best to you, not every little detail. This is great for teens who are forming a basic understanding of their faith and trying to comprehend the overall story of Scripture and how it applies to today. In some Study Bibles, I think the attempts at application are a little shallow or too emotionally-driven. This Bible, again, in MY opinion, balances scholarship and application well.

Who should NOT get this Bible:
If you're someone who's read through the Bible several times, been part of Bible Bowl or Awana, or really want to jump into the nitty gritty of Scripture, you won't be satisfied with this text. It is aimed at entry-level readers and offers a big-picture view of Scripture. It is a great introduction to understanding God's Word and can certainly help someone with an intermediate knowledge of Scripture and theology. But for people with a good set of Bible study skills and experience under their belt, look elsewhere.

Considering who this Study Bible is aimed at (teenagers), I believe they addressed their demographic very well. Students with open hearts and curious minds will be blessed to find out that the Bible applies to their lives, is relevant to world issues, and can be understood by everyone.

This Bible is awesome!! It has great study guides. Easy to find index and is so easy to read and understand. I have just ordered another copy of it because my first one got ruined by being out in the rain. But it is well worth the cash.

The Student Bible NIV-- Is That the Book For Me? 8 Feb. 2011
By John - Published on
Format: Paperback
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God."
I first purchased this edition of Scripture back in middle school ten years ago for Bible class. It has been with my and has become my favorite edition of God's Word.
I started reading a long time ago--the gospels, Revelation, Acts, and so on. I have found (and still find) the introductions and blue clipping-like notes very helpful.
This book also includes character profiles and an index to whatever subject you want to look up.
I highly recommend reading this book and the NIV translation. If you want opulence you can understand, stick with this edition.
Read Scripture, get involved in church, and have fun! No excuses!
