An excellent edition of the NIV text. The interests and notes provide great cultural and historical context that greatly helped me understand the text and message of the Bible ( )

I highly recommend this Bible. It’s like having custom and manners, maps, and timelines all in one book. ( )

I've read the Bible through several times, but I found reading this one interesting. The historical connections and discussions of archaeological finds enlightened my reading. I took 2 years to read this time so I could read all the notes and articles. I read the New Testament last year and the Old Testament this year. ( )

The text of the New International Version with many articles and explanations of history, archaeology, geography, etc.

The NIV text is thought-for-thought and generally makes defensible interpretive decisions. Genesis 8:21 comes out of nowhere with its original sin/total depravity focus that is not warranted from the text; "sinful nature" for sarx, the flesh, in the NT, is also a bit jaundiced.

I greatly appreciated the many articles; they do a very good job of teaching about what is known about the historical context, archaeological discoveries, geographic information, and cultural customs. There were many times, particularly in the OT, in which I felt the articles were straining for apologetic purposes, and found it disappointing; there's a sublimity about the way prophecies, etc. get fulfilled, and focusing just on "see, here's evidence for belief" seemed like it set the bar a bit low.

This is a great study Bible because its focus does not lend itself well to denominational peculiarities; the articles and notes just help to color in the cultural and historical details, and they do it well.

Recommended for consideration. ( )
