I really enjoyed Bible study time with this Bible which was always full of history, but the full color pictures, detailed artifacts enhanced this experience so much.
When you have read the Bible a few times, it's a great idea to dive deeper into your Bible, such as research by using a few bibles to get a clear meaning of a verse, and sometime you have to take classes to help you explore the Bible deeper. However, with this NIV Study Bible, Fully Revised Edition by Zondervan which is full of commentary, charts, maps, articles, and so much more you are able to have the experience of a class right in the comfort of your own home, which is perfect as we are in the middle of COVID-19.
Here is a picture of a lap desk I received from my children as gift for my Bible study times. I absolutely recommend getting one if you don't have one already.
It's perfect for keeping all your pens, highlighters, sticky notes, tabs, journals, and water in one place without laying it all over the bed, or falling all over the floor when you move or turn the page.
Here is the link for the must have Bible Study lap desk (Perfect for road trips too). I brought this with me when I went out of state with my husband and I had to work. It was perfect as I was able to have a notebook, pen, bottle water, snacks and put my phone in the pockets and they never fell to the floor, and the sturdiness was amazing as I was able to use my laptop the whole trip.
Here are a few pictures from inside the NIV Study Bible, Fully Revised Edition by Zondervan.
The clarity of this Bible takes you on a journey around the world as your experiencing these places that Jesus, Moses, and Abraham was apart of. Seeing these pictures truly help you connect everything.
One of the attached pictures was one of the idols that were made that people worshiped as mentioned in Jeremiah 10:3-5. This idol was of the Canaanite god El.
One of my favorite parts of this Bible was pages 1882-1889 which has a harmony of the gospels which has the date, evet, location, and which book of the bible it's referenced in such as Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John.
Cant go wrong if your new to the Bible, looking to dive deeper into the Bible, or even need a new bible this is the Bible for you.
