NIV Faithlife Study Bible -- my REVIEW

Are you looking for a study Bible?  This NIV Faithlife Study Bible is worth looking into!  Maybe you don't even think you need a study Bible...well, I think you'll be interested in this!  This is a review NOT of the Bible (of course!) but of the book/study guides/etc.

This Bible is an NIV Bible, the full Scriptures, with many many study assists added in.  There are explanations on the bottom of each page that cover passages as well as individual verses or segments of verses.  There are parallel passages cited, cultural references explained, historic references, alternate usages of words, and more.

There are many "extras" in this Bible as well,

Each book of the Bible begins with background information, some with maps of the area in which the book occurs, an outline of the book, the themes of the book, a timeline, how the book is structured, and more!

On the lower segment of each page are helps, explanations, and other things that will help you to better understand the different passages and verses.

Timelines are a great visual help!

I really like the family trees--

as well as the little explanatory diagrams/pictures.

There are many other helpful things, among which are  
essays on certain topics by Bible scholars and preachers

Ths size of this study Bible is not gigantic -- it is quite large, but not too intimidatingly large to take with you!  You can use this Bible at home or take it to a Bible study or elsewhere with you!  You will be glad to have these extra study assists available for you!

I would recommend this study Bible, it would be a great help in your own Bible study, it would make a great gift, and it would be helpful for any student of the Word of God.
