Okay, so I am an old guy. I have used the NIV Student Version for 20 years. But now I need a larger print edition, since my eyesight does not have the acuity it once did.

Introductions to the chapters, and the questions through out the pages, make you stop and think. This has served me well for two decades.

Argue translations if you must, but this just works. It is simple. Easy to read. If you want something more complex, try the NIV Study Bible.

If I were buying a Bible for someone new to the faith, this would be the one I'd buy and would recommend.

It has in all respects, been "an old friend."

This is an excellent copy of the NIV version of the Bible, featuring three Tracks for reading the Bible, from an introduction to reading every word. In addition to the text, each chapter has a great introduction as well as high points and people you'll meet within that particular Book. I gave this to my son (who is 16) to see what he thought of it, and he said he really liked the layout. The questions and highlights were things that were relevant to him--not patronizing or judgmental. He also really liked the Table of Weights and Measures and the Glossary of People and Places at the end. I found the text size easy to read and the graphics were simplistic and not at all overpowering. I would definitely buy this Bible for my teenagers and any young adult.

Who should get this Bible:
If you're a fan of the new NIV (2011 update) and want a Bible with basic study notes, this is great! It provides three reading plan ideas to help people work through Scripture. It also provides a brief topical index and maps in the back for further study. My favorite part is Yancey's guided tour through Scripture. Instead of leaving comments on EVERY verse in Scripture, he hits the highlights. It's like being on a tour with someone who's seen the scenery before and wants to point out the very best to you, not every little detail. This is great for teens who are forming a basic understanding of their faith and trying to comprehend the overall story of Scripture and how it applies to today. In some Study Bibles, I think the attempts at application are a little shallow or too emotionally-driven. This Bible, again, in MY opinion, balances scholarship and application well.

Who should NOT get this Bible:
If you're someone who's read through the Bible several times, been part of Bible Bowl or Awana, or really want to jump into the nitty gritty of Scripture, you won't be satisfied with this text. It is aimed at entry-level readers and offers a big-picture view of Scripture. It is a great introduction to understanding God's Word and can certainly help someone with an intermediate knowledge of Scripture and theology. But for people with a good set of Bible study skills and experience under their belt, look elsewhere.

Considering who this Study Bible is aimed at (teenagers), I believe they addressed their demographic very well. Students with open hearts and curious minds will be blessed to find out that the Bible applies to their lives, is relevant to world issues, and can be understood by everyone.

The NIV student bible is a great all around Bible for students and young adults. It's especially well suited for personal study and devotionals, as well as Bible studies and bringing to church. As a college student, I choose the student Bible for my daily reading while using a Study Bible more for reference.
The leather bound edition is very nice, especially as a gift, and will last a good long time. I'd suggest the hardcover if it will be kept in a Bible cover.

This Bible is awesome!! It has great study guides. Easy to find index and is so easy to read and understand. I have just ordered another copy of it because my first one got ruined by being out in the rain. But it is well worth the cash.

I'm going to start with a list of pros and cons.

Pros:
Tim Stafford and Philip Yancey write excellent study notes.
The binding feels durable.
The faux leather feels borderline indestructible. (It feels like the same material as a basketball lol.)
The resources (maps, 100 people you should know etc.) are really nice to have.

Cons:
Aesthetics. I Had a previous version of this study bible and the 'theme' was blue and had a road sign for the guided tour. Now the theme is like a tealish color and the guided tour has a tree (The same one you see on the front). Personally I like the old color and I think the road signs make more sense for a 'Guided Tour' of the Bible.

Overall I'm very happy with it. The aesthetic changes aren't personally my favorite, but the study notes are by far still my favorite.

If you are looking for a great printed version of the Bible to give to a teen/tween/young adult, this is the one to pick up! I am a pastor now, and I was a youth pastor for fifteen years, and I have given hundreds of these away to young people. In the very near future I will be buying a copy for my own kids (as soon as they are old enough to read it). Not only that, but the NIV Student Bible was around when I was a teenager, and I still have the one given to me when I was a young man. Everything that made it great for my own personal study has been maintained and improved over the years.

Here are some of my favorite features:

- From the moment you open it up there are in-text "helps" (think signposts) that help direct you so that you can navigate the Bible easily (note: this is not reviewing the Kindle edition - I have not seen that)
- There are many in-text sidebars that give very brief, yet helpful explanations about what you are reading. There aren't so many that it takes up too much space, but there are enough to help a reader have some crucial "aha moments" while reading.
- Reading Plans: There are three great reading plans ("tracks") available to guide someone who wants to read through the Bible but doesn't know where to start. The first time I read through the Bible entirely I used the "track" that takes you through the entire Bible in three years (requires reading about 5 min. a day).
- Introductions to Books of the Bible: Accessible and simple, these give the reader an idea of how the particular book fits into the larger Biblical narrative.
- "Cool Factor:" I know...
