The NIV Study Bible is a great asset to my library. I bought it many years ago while at a Christian men's conference.
Seven essays are also included. Five address specific sections of the Bible such as the Pastoral Letters etc. and two essays cover the topics of the ethical question of war and the social and literature developments between the writings of the Old and New Testaments.
also features the largest concordance ever bound with an English Bible.
I love the layout of this Bible. It's very easy to read and use and I
heartily recommend it to all.
