From the Back Cover

The World’s Best-Selling Study Bible Now Raises the Standard Even Higher That’s because its celebrated study notes have been thoroughly revised. Turn to any page and discover the difference: over 20,000 of the Zondervan NIV Study Bible’s Gold Medallion Award-winning study notes—now meticulously updated and expanded to reflect the most current conservative Bible scholarship. Unmatched in any other study Bible, these notes place at your fingertips a treasury of instant commentary from today’s top evangelical scholars. Icons highlight notes of special interest in the areas of character study, archaeology, and personal application. Simply put, you won’t find study notes as complete, up-to-date, helpful, and easy to use anywhere else. And the benefits build from there. Like no other Bible, the Zondervan NIV Study Bible places an entire resource library for Bible study in your hands. Over 6 million people have made it their study Bible of choice. Make it yours as well. It’s one choice you’ll always be glad you made. SPECIAL FEATURES: NIV text remains unchanged - the most read, most trusted English-language translation. Over 20,000 study notes. NIV translators thoroughly revised and expanded the award-winning study notes and added over 800 new notes. Icons make important information easy to spot.

900 Character Profile icons.

425 Archaeology icons.

Almost 3,000 Personal Application icons. Introductions and outlines provide valuable background information for each book of the Bible. In-text maps, charts, diagrams, and illustrations right where you want them—five of which are completely new. 16 pages of full-color maps plus timelines and presentation page. Words of Christ in red letter. NIV concordance plus subject and study notes indexes. Clearer. Stonger. Better. Referred to daily by millions of pastors, students, church leaders, and other Bible readers around the world, the renowned Zondervan NIV Study Bible notes are the crown jewel of the world’s best-selling study Bible. These over-20,000 notes are the handiwork of the same translation team that produced this Bible’s text, the New International Version. The same exacting, conservative scholarship that brought you today’s most read, most trusted Bible translation went into creating the most celebrated, widely used Bible study notes in existence. Why improve on what’s already outstanding? Because now it can be made even better. In the years since the 1985 publication of the first Zondervan NIV Study Bible edition, ongoing discoveries in archaeology, linguistics, biblical history, and other disciplines have suggested the need to revise the notes. Drawing on the most current scholarship, the world-class team who first created the study notes now present comprehensive revisions and additions that bring the notes thoroughly up to date. With all the changes to the study notes, however, one thing has remained unchanged—the time-tested, trusted text of the NIV itself. You’ll be pleased with the results. If you found the original notes indispensable in clarifying obscure Bible passages and shedding light on the meaning and significance of Scripture, you’ll love how these revised and expanded notes add even greater depth to your study of God’s Word. The New International Version (NIV) is today’s most read and most trusted English Bible translation. The goal of the NIV translation team was to produce an accurate translation and one that would have clarity and literary quality and so prove suitable for public and private reading, teaching, preaching, memorizing, and liturgical use. Today the NIV is accepted by more denominations than any other translation and is supported by a library of reference resources that is unmatched by any other translation. Over the last five years, the editors of the NIV study Bible have painstakingly reviewed, revised, and rewritten the notes of the classic, best-selling NIV Study Bible. Over 80 percent of the notes have been revised and adapted in some way from the 1996 update, and some 30% of the notes in the text have been added, completely rewritten, replaced, or deleted. Over 800 of the more than 20,000 notes in this edition are completely new. This update reflects the most recent scholarship from a conservative academic perspective, and reflects changes to the text suggested and requested over the last 15 years by students and academics who have studied, used, and loved the NIV Study Bible.

The European Leather Bibles are beautiful inside and out, but are not thumb-indexed. Other Top Grain Leather editions are available, both indexed and non-indexed.

It's unfortunate Amazon can't fully describe these Bibles on their pages. I used the Zondervan website ([...]) to find out the ISBN numbers for the highest quality, top grain genuine leather bound editions, and ordered the navy indexed model (ISBN 0-310-92982-2). I am very happy with this Bible, as the leather is soft and the look is unique in the navy color with silver page edges. It is also a very thick Bible and has numerous maps, timelines, and other helpful study aides, in addition to the thorough notes. My only complaint is that the font is a rather modern one, and does not look as fancy as the Ryrie Study Bibles. They also have Burgundy and Black, in Top Grain or Bonded Leather, and with or without thumb indices, it's just nearly impossible to tell which is which on Amazon.

Here's a list from [...

Viewed side by side, this is a much nicer Bible than the pebble-grain bonded leather ones; those don't seem enough like real leather. This one does; it looks right, feels right, and smells right. I gave it four stars instead of five because it doesn't seem to be available with indexing. I would also have preferred gold edging to the silver that mine came with, but that's a matter of individual taste only.

I didn't like the rather cheap-looking stamped text on the spine, so I put some acetone on a soft cloth and wiped that away. The stamped text impressions without the silver fill make for a much-improved appearance.

I bought this Bible for my personal study and it is a great resource. I enjoy reading the study information they provide as it gives you a deeper look into the times and customs as well as geography. It can be a little distracting though as sometimes I find myself reading the supplemental information more that I am reading the text of the Bible itself. The leather is not as soft as I thought it would be and when I received it one of the pages had been cut oddly at the factory. Overall a good product.

Lots of information - so much so that I keep dropping down to the information area to read the background or expansion on things. One thing I wish they would do differently - they so often say "see ref xxxx" and then refer you to another section of the bible. Well, that has you jumping all over the place and you'd never get through the passage, so I have to ignore all that stuff. Pity that they don't just list the information in its entirety even if it takes up space.

The NIV study Bible is as good as it gets. The NIV translation is accurate and readable. The study notes were written by a team of scholars representing various traditions in evangelical faith. The notes greatly help the average reader understand what the original intent of the author was. I highly recommend this Bible for anyone wanting to understand the Bible.
