From the Back Cover
The classic, best-selling NIV Student Bible--now redesigned, updated, improved, and ready to reach a new generation of readers. Available in a handy compact size that has proven popular with consumers and retailers over the years. Key features and benefits include:
*A New Look. A Brand new typesetting and a fresh new cover complement the new notes that have been included by authors Philip Yancey and Tim Stafford.
*A New Feature. The newest feature is called the "Guided Tour", in which Philip Yancey takes the reader through the Bible, highlighting important passages that show the interconnectedness of the Biblical narrative from Genesis to Revelation.
*The Same Mission. In Yancey's words, the goal of the authors and editors of this Bible is "Not to get the reader into the Bible, but to get the Bible into the reader." The NIV Student Bible addresses the three most common complaints about the Bible:
*"I can't understand it." --Highlights and Insights
*"I can't find it." --Subject Guide
*"The Bible is too big and intimidating."--3-Track reading plan.
The New International Version is the most read, most trusted Bible translation. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

I bought this version on the strength of the only review currently on this item. I was encouraged to read that the text was being described as a 'good readable size'. I have received the book and the print is absolutely tiny; the smallest I have ever seen in a book. I would hazard a guess that the font size would be a font size pt 4 or pt 5 in Windows Word office. The print is also very light (still black, but very light print). This will be a struggle, and if I use it I will have to use another bible for the bulk of the reading. Wish I'd known this prior to purchase.
