If you have never read the Quest Study Bible, you're in for a treat. What makes this study bible really interesting and different is that it's presented in a conversational and very easy-to-understand "Questions and Answers" format. The Questions and Answers are presented on the outer edges from beginning to end, page by page. You'll find more than 6000 questions and answers throughout all the passages in the Scriptures. They provide thoughtful, accurate, and conservative insight. 200 of the most commonly asked questions and answers having been expanded into short articles throughout the bible. There are color maps, 100 charts, book introductions, timelines, a concordance, dictionary, and subject index. There is a tremendous amount of work by a very large group of Contributors put into the production of the Quest Study Bible. ( )

NIV is my preferred Bible translation and I have recommended this particular study Bible to others. I like that the notes are primarily in the side margins, which makes for much easier reading and searching. The information they provide seems pretty straight-forward and without strong bias. ( )

I really like the NIV version and I like the historical information and other ideas that are placed along the margins in this bible. I've used it now for nearly 15 years. I bought several beginning studiers of Christianity this bible in the mid-90's. I don't know if the current editions are different from mine, although the cover is! ( )

This is an *excellent* study Bible in my opinion. The study notes don't really push any particular theology, but present the different interpretations of "problem" passages pretty objectively. The notes don't go very deep because of this, but this Bible isn't designed for extremely in-depth studying (a good set of commentaries is better for that anyway). The layout is also excellent, having most of the notes in the outer margins with some articles on the bottom of the page. The only thing I would change about this Bible is the translation; I prefer the ESV. However, that's simply a personal preference and doesn't reflect on the notes themselves at all, which is really what shines in this Bible. ( )
