The NIV student bible is much more easily readable than traditional bibles. It also provides little boxes with extra information for many of the chapters. Probably my favorite feature of this bible is that it provides track 1, 2, and three reading programs which vary in lenght from 2 weeks to 3 years. If you haven't ever really been a serious bible reader, this directs you where to start and can give you an overview of the bible in a very short time.
The Word of God is powerful and amazing, and this bible provides wonderful access to it. I recommend the NIV study bible for people at all spiritual levels! Michelle
The New Student Bible has been an enormous help. In addition to the text in modern-day American English, it has an excellent index, maps, and lots of call-outs and sidebars that help a 21st Century American understand the context of Biblical times.
It also offers a number of reading plans, from two-week plans focused on a particular area, to plans for the entire Bible.
Nothing beats the beautiful language of the King James version: "Thou preparest a table before me..." But this book is where you can go to really understand what was going on, and what it meant at the time.
One of the greatest tributes that this Bible has to offer is that there are random little 'in debth' looks into different passages. I've found these useful in that they give you an example of how deep you can really go into the Bible.
One innacuracy I have found in this Bible is the translation. In several parts, I feel the urge to pick up my Hebrew Bible, and make the translation myself, just to double check. There have been many cases where I was fairly certain that a passage in a specific secion said one thing, when it clearly said something different. As one of the main purposes of the Bible is to extract a feeling of what is morally sound, you want as close a translation to the real thing as possible. Like I said though, this only comes up in a select few parts, so don't feel that you need to rush out and get another Bible to check it's translation^_^ Another note that people may or may not realize is that one of the authors of the Left Behind series (my memory fails me as to what his name is at this current moment) helped write those little side notations, which is another plus.
For a student (teen-college), I highly recomeend this Bible, and think that it is probally one of the best out there for that age group. For those who may be older or younger, you should check out the differnt types of Bibles that the NIV version has to offer--ex: devotional, single's, womans, mens, childrens ect...
Godbless 'ya! (I know he will:)
My mother, who's studied the Bible all her life, loves to read my Bible, too. It gives her new insights, she says, and the NASB translation is so refreshing!
Carrying an NIV version of this Student Bible has also elicited many comments from friends, classmates, and people I know only by face. One asked to read it for an afternoon. Praise God!
