The NIV Essentials Study Bible, published by Zondervan, is an incredible resource for any Bible student. It combines resources from six other NIV resources or Bibles: the NIV Study Bible, the NIV Quest Study Bible, the NIV Archaeological Study Bible, the NIV Student Bible, the Great Rescue Bible, and the Essential Bible Companion.
Each book of the Bible begins with several study aids, such as key concepts, a summary of the book, key verses, key teachings, key terms, important people in the book and pages number to locate them, timelines, and maps. Within each book, the reader will find question-and-answer studies, detailed study notes, charts, pictures, character profiles, and devotional insights. Life questions are provided to help apply the lessons of the Bible to our lives today. In the back of this Bible, study helps such as table of weights and measures, reading plans, subject index, color maps, and concordance, provide assistance necessary to gain even greater understanding of Bible concepts.
I was impressed with this Bible. I would recommend it to anyone attempting to delve deeper into Bible lessons for his life today.
I received this Bible free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
