By Alejandra Vernon HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on December 2, 2004
Format: Leather Bound
The NIV is one of the two best-selling Bible translations (the other being the KJV) and for good reason; it is a fluid, beautiful version in today's English, and is recommended by many Bible scholars as being "the most readable" Bible available.
This edition by Zondervan is perfect for many reasons, and also comes in an indexed version for the ease of finding those books that tend to "hide" like the single chapter of Obadiah for a slightly higher price.
The 12-point typeface is excellent for tired eyes, and adds to the pleasure of reading this superb translation.
The bonded leather construction is sturdy, with a gold surface on the outside of the pages.

Features include:
Presentation/Events pages.
A Preface which tells the history of the NIV translation, which was made by "over a hundred scholars working directly from the best Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek texts", who realized the need for this new translation and began work on it in 1965.
Each book has an Introduction, which has some useful and enlightening information, as well as an Outline of contents.
Ribbon marker.
Words of Jesus in red.
It has no center reference column, but the references are located at the end of a verse/poetry line/paragraph.
Table of weights and measures.
Concordance.
8 Maps.

Translation comparison of Psalm 37: 7-8.
KJV: "Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil".

NIV: "Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret--it leads only to evil".

Format: Leather Bound
ISBN-0: 0310905818 (stamped in gold on the back cover) is the indexed, 12-point font, black bonded leather edition. It is an especially lovely, well made Bible. The leather is supple and sumptuous. It has an end-of-paragraph reference system that is minimal, non-invasive, and does not intrude on the flow of reading; double columns are divided with a thin unobtrusive vertical line.

It is without center column notes, and contains a "large-print" concordance that is fairly legible; however, the font is only about 7 points. The overall look and "feel" of this Bible is particularly pleasing. Zondervan's tout of "Extensive study helps" is grossly exaggerated. The strong suit of this edition is mainly the comfortable feel and font size that make for a comfortable read.

For a study bible, I would select from among the following:

Ryrie Study Bible NIV Genuine Leather Burgundy- Red Letter Indexed (Ryrie Study Bibles)
Ryrie Study Bible/New American Standard/Red Letter Indexed Bonded Black Leather

Thompson Chain Reference Bible-NASB - Thompson Chain Reference Bible-NIV ( indexed)

I bought many bibles looking for the perfect size, font, version and ease of use and this is the one. I love the larger font and the thumb index that helps me get to the book I want quickly. And the price was good too...well worth it.

Exactly what I was looking for .....the large-size font was the largest available (the ink/paper had good contrast) but the Bible itself was not too heavy to carry around with much effort.... I wish it came in a Burgundy cover.

Zondervan publishes many types of NIV bibles. I like the format and easy reading of this font size (11.5). This bible does not have the "bleed through" of Christ text in red present in several other of thier bibles availble today.

The translation, font size has worked very well for me. These older eyes do need help and this bible fills that need.

the bible fell apart after receiving it. i tried to live with it but it is so important i can at least hold the bible without it falling apart. the problem is I waited to long to make a comment because it was success a fragile item. I kinda put it away and read other bibles i had. When i went to church this past sunday and it fell on the floor in clumps. the pastor wife said send that bible back. i decided to try and do that. i know these people would not accept a return but i will never order from them again.

Hello Everyone,

I just purchased this Bible because I was looking for something a bit smaller and compact without sacrificing content. I am truly not disappointed with this great Bible! The text is large enough to read (12pt) without my glasses, the concordance is quite through (although the text size is smaller(7pt)and you may need glasses to read it) but if you can live with that, it's a great Bible. The thumb indexed pages, the words of Christ in red and the convenient size make this a real winner as a travel Bible. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this Bible and hey, you can't beat the price either!

God be with you all!
