It’s no secret that I’m a fan of wide margin Bibles. They promote Bible study and having your own notes is better than having someone else’s commentary. They also (hopefully) have better paper and print than the regular everyday Bible. One such Bible is the new NIV Note-Taker’s Bible from Zondervan. Pros Nice paper for writing Clean text Cons No inside margin Features 2011 NIV text Black-letter 1.25 Wide outside margin 1 3/8 Wide bottom margin Hard Cover Section headings 2 column Paragraph format Translation notes Table of Weights and Measures 1140 pages 9.5 x 6.5 x 1.25 ISBN:...Read More

Daily reading Bibles are a great way to read the Bible through in a year. They have the Bible arranged for you, separated by day, so you can just pick it up and read the days’ reading without having to put any thought into the reading plan itself. There are many choices. The hard part is knowing which one would work for you. There are several choices for the plan in daily reading Bibles. You can read the Bible in Biblical order, chronologically, have a morning and evening reading, or read portions from various books (Law, Prophets, Psalms/Proverbs, Gospels,...Read More

The NIV Quickview Bible from Zondervan is unique among study Bibles. Rather than being filled with note after note of commentary (which is usually just text), the Quickview Bible provides information in a way that the majority of people learn – visually. The Quickview Bible provides visual snapshots of key passages and stories, providing visual information to go with the Biblical text, making the information more understandable. Pros Great visuals Plenty of facts Cons No references No concordance Basic Features 2011 NIV text 360 full-color infographics 20 in-text maps Color-coded sections Section headings Black-letter Study helps Hard cover with jacket 1108 pages 9.75 x 6.75 x 1.25 ISBN: 978-0-310-44230-1 Cover and Binding This Bible is only available in hard cover (and e-book, but that one doesn’t have a binding). It has a jacket that explanations the purpose of this edition. The cover is a portion of Matthew 5 and the infographic of the Sermon on the Mount. Removing the jacket reveals a shiny blue hard cover that simply says Holy Bible, NIV, and Zondervan. The binding is glued. It feels well-made. Paper, Text, and Layout The paper looks and feels like the paper that’s popular in study Bibles today. It does have some show-through. Most of the time it didn’t seem too distracting, especially with all of the graphics covering the pages. The font looks around an 8-point with...Read More
