About the Author

The New International Version is the world's most popular modern English Bible translation. Developed by Biblica, formerly the International Bible Society, the New International Version is the result of years of work by the Committee on Bible Translation, overseeing the efforts of many contributing scholars. The translators are drawn from a wide range of denominations and from various countries and they continually review new research in order to ensure the NIV remains at the forefront of accessibility, relevance and authority. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This review is for the hardcover edition of the NIV Study Bible 2011 in book form (not Kindle).

One thing to notice right from the start is that this new study Bible is called "NIV Study Bible" and not "Zondervan NIV Study Bible".

Initially I was reluctant to purchase another updated NIV Study Bible (since I've had several improved versions already of the NIV Study Bible); However, when I opened this updated edition and began reading it, I recognized right away that there were significant improvements.

A. The NIV text is revised -- this Study Bible uses the updated 2011 text rather than the 1984 NIV text. The main difference in the updated 2011 text is use of more gender inclusive language ("brothers and sisters" instead of brethren), and significant differences in translation than the 1984 NIV version.

Here are some of the significant changes:

1) Psalm 23: 4: "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil ..." (2011 version); the older version (1984) reads "Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil."

2) In Genesis 1:6 the 1984 version says, "And God said, 'let there be an expanse between the waters to separate water from water"; in the 2011 version, Gen. 1:6 says, "Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water."

3) Rom. 1:16: The 1984 version leaves out the conjunction "For" in the beginning: "I am not ashamed of the gospel .." The 2011 version correctly adds "For" in the beginning: "For I am not ashamed of the gospel.."

4) Rom.

First of, the content is amazing.. commentaries, maps, etc... exactly what I wished for.

Unfortunately, the layout (in Kindle) is disappointing. There is no index to go to a specific chapter or verse. To do that I would need to go way back to the table of contents. It's difficult clicking the commentaries (I was hoping it would show below similar to magazines or my annotations). To go to the maps if would take several clicks and by that time, it would be difficult to return to the verse I came from.

In summary, the content is really good and for a straightforward read of the Bible, functional. But if you would like to really study the Bible or use this for a study, it's really difficult.

UPDATE: After using the study Bible even more.. I now love it! The content is really good.. full of commentaries and even pictures. Navigation is not perfect, but it just takes getting used to. What I would do is to read the chapter, go back to v1 and read the commentaries for the rest of the chapter. I am now at Leviticus and what was a difficult and boring read for me, now is much more meaningful and insightful. It's nice to have all that info anywhere.

From the pre-publication hype, I really expected a blockbuster of a Bible. Add to that, this is the 2011 edition, which I was excited about reading. So my bias was very much positive when I first opened this version of the Book.

Let's start with the positives. The content is good, pretty much as advertised. There are many, many references, about 90 maps, etc. And it's the 2011 edition, which I wanted.

I'm out of positives. Here are my concerns and issues.

__________________________________________
1) By far the biggest: Navigation is really poor.
---- (A) When you are reading pane (i.e., somewhere in the text of the Bible), there is no indication of what book you are reading until you get to the next chapter. All you see are verse numbers. Tapping the screen once causes translucent bars to appear at the top and bottom. The top bar shows the book (e.g., Matthew), but the bottom bar shows the "location" -- a 6-digit number like 303531 (for Matthew, Chapter 10, verse 35).
---- (B) Your bookmarks use the same cryptic "location" code as their identification. If you have only a few bookmarks that may not be a problem, but if you create more than a dozen bookmarks the 6-digit reference system will have you tearing out your hair.
---- (C) If you press a cross-reference link, you are taken to that link on a one-way journey. There is no "back" function -- the regular "back" key takes you out to the Kindle icon on the main screen, not back to where you were before you touched the cross-reference. Restarting the application usually takes you back to the notes page, not the verse you were reading before following the cross-ref.

First, I must point out (but not to boast) that between my mother and I, we own, read and study from well over 35 different types of Bibles. I myself own over 17(and counting). I'm a Sunday School teacher, Evangelist/minister, who studies the Hebrew/Aramaic/Greek/Latin language and history, and love to read, learn and teach. I must say, by far, that this is indeed the most handy, intelligent, and interesting COMPACT Bible (that I have ever seen) that is available in the USA today. When it comes to COMPACT STUDY Bibles, this one is the top of the line. I don't think there ever was such a Bible that one could carry with them (on a train, bus, etc. I live in NYC so I use mass transit a lot)and still have important tools needed for deeper, eye opening, understanding of text, content, life application, historical and archaeological discoveries, dating/time keeping and even apologetics. This is one COMPACT Bible that has a little of everything in it (which causes the thickness). Also on the positive, the Bible is in full color adding to the aid of a closer grip on the photos on the pictures, places, and people (even the Words of Jesus are in red lettered text). There are numerous charts, timelines and maps that help grasp the locations, dates and history of each of the 66 Books. Each Bible Book is replete with information (esp. in the introductions) and handled with care by the contributors.
However, this Bible would be better if it had two thread markers instead of one (and an index would have been okay too).
