In my opinion the reader’s Bible trend is one of the most important trends in the Bible publishing industry because it gives readers access to the Word of God without man’s additions distracting the reader. Zondervan has entered the Reader’s Bible trend with the NIV Reader’s Bible. This edition has the high-quality design that we’ve come to expect in reader’s editions and a few additional features that sets it apart from the rest. This is the only real reader’s edition that retains the translator’s footnotes, but it still keeps them away from the text to create a nice readable layout....Read More
Zondervan’s NIV Beautiful Word Coloring Bible is another addition to the Bibles available for those of us who like artistic journaling. Instead of the full color artwork of the original Beautiful Word Bible this one has line drawings for us to color. ISBN: 9760310445579 Zondervan provided this Bible free for review. I was not required to give a positive review – only an honest one. _________________________________________________________ This Bible is available at (includes some affiliate links) Amazon Church Source DaySpring and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________________________________ COVER & BINDING This edition is hard cover with a dust jacket and includes...Read More
The Amplified Study Bible is unique in that it provides a way to study the nuances and meaning of words without having to learn the original languages. The Amplified translation was recently updated.

In this review I take a look at the latest version of the Amplified Study Bible. ISBN: 9780310440307 _________________________ Buy from Amazon _________________________ The Amplified Translation The Amplified translation gives you a range of words that are alternative...Read More
To help build our curiosity in God’s Word, Zondervan has partnered with Faithlife (maker of Logos and the Faithlife Study Bible app) to publish the NIV Faithlife Study Bible. The Bible includes study notes that were adapted from the Faithlife Study Bible app. The study notes are built on the original languages and include multiple points of view. The purpose of this study Bible is to help Christians stay curious about God’s Word. How do we stay curious about the Bible? Why is this important? It’s important because there’s always more to learn about God’s Word. We can never...Read More
The large or giant print KJV with center column references is a standard in Bible publishing. Practically every KJV publisher has one including Zondervan. In this Bible review I take a look at Zondervan’s low-priced Giant Print Reference Bible (ISBN 9780310931720) in burgundy bonded leather. The suggested retail price is $17.99. It can often be found for much less. Even though it’s a low-priced Bible it has a lot to offer. ______________________________ Buy from Amazon ______________________________ Binding The cover is burgundy bonded leather with a paper liner and a glued binding. This is not the kind of cover that...Read More
