When Zondervan announced the new NIV Faithlife Study Bible (FSB), I wondered if this would be a repackaging of the ever-popular NIV Study Bible or the more recent NIV Zondervan Study Bible, both of which I’ve appreciated and previously reviewed. However, as I look at the complimentary copy of the NIV Faithlife Study Bible Zondervan sent me to review, I see an entirely new study edition – one I especially recommend and plan to refer to often.

Jam-packed with information, this edition is not as bulky or weighty as some, which makes it an excellent choice to carry to a Bible study discussion group for adults of all ages – from teens to elderly readers – and all levels of study – from beginners to long-time students of God’s Word.

In case you want to know what perspective to expect, the preface by General Editor John D. Barry addresses this by saying, the “FSB stands in the Christian tradition summarized by the ancient Apostles’ Creed and Nicene Creed. It is committed both to the authority of Scripture and to the challenge of wrestling with its full meaning.”

With such a wealth of informative articles, illustrations, and study notes, I expect this edition to be consistently enlightening and well-used.

This NIV Study Bible is a behemoth literally and figuratively -- it's a large volume (think keeping it at home, not something easily carried to/from church), and packed with commentary, maps, a detailed index, and more. I included a few pictures below so you can get a sense of the format, but each page of the scripture includes a significant bottom section of commentary (nearly verse by verse). In addition, the beginning of each book provides background/timelines/as well as there being listings of interest in the middle of some books (ie complete listings of Jesus' miracles & parables, timeline of events leading to the crucifixion, etc). At the end of the scripture section is a robust map section as well as a detailed index of scriptures by topic. The commentary writing itself I found to be a nice mix of understandable to the early learner of Christianity while also plenty detailed and thought-provoking for the 'experienced' Christian to learn from as well. Definitely recommended.

In a Christian publishing world that is awash in “Study” Bibles, it is a herculean task to publish one that is a standout. There are topical, themed, theological, chronological, popular-pastor … well, you get the idea … study Bibles. So when the NIV Faithlife Study Bible came my way, I was quite curious. I have known of Faithlife (formerly Logos) for several years as a user of their software. Faithlife has been stirring up the digital Bible world for twenty-five years. Logos Bible Software is their flagship product. With the success of their Bible software, they have expanded significantly, almost all within the Bible scholarship arena. For a number of years they have been “working on” the Faithlife Study Bible as a digital product, adding and editing as time progressed. In fact, you can get virtually all of the information in NIV Faithlife Study Bible at the Faithlife website. The major difference will be the Bible translation – you’ll get the Lexham English Bible on line.

Now you can get that digital project in print. Faithlife has teamed with Zondervan to publish the NIV Faithlife Study Bible. The combination makes for a dynamic Bible study tool. Faithlife has used their wide range of digital resources to produce a Bible that is more than just another “Study” Bible. At first glance it may look like a typical study Bible, But do not be deceived; it is the visual content of this publication that makes it so beneficial.

What makes this “Study” Bible so special is the multitude of charts, graphs, tables, lists, timelines, etc., that are appropriately placed with the biblical text. For example, at the start of every book there is a timeline pertaining to that book or collection of books (such as Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther). This is a tremendous aid to the understanding of the historical context.

Of course, with all of these study aids and extra “goodies” comes a bit of bulk. There are 2304 pages included in the two inch thick volume and it weighs in at 3.8 pounds – perhaps a bit heavy to be toting everywhere you go. But, putting aside the bulk, this Bible is well worth the investment.

If you are a “I want to feel the Bible in my hand to read it” person, this is the version of the Faithlife Study Bible to have. In fact, this may be THE “Study Bible” to have.

Disclaimer: I was provided this volume by Zondervan for a fair and honest review.
