I was thrilled to receive a copy of this e-book study Bible for review! Actually, its like having six study Bibles in one! This Kindle version is easy to read and easy to navigate! And its FULL of great study information!!!
So why do I say its six study Bibles in one? Well, the NIV Essentials Study Bible combines study notes and articles from SIX other study Bibles: the Essential Bible Companion, the NIV Study Bible, the NIV Archealogical Study Bible, the NIV Quest Study Bible, the NIV Student Bible, and the Great Rescue NIV. Here's a breakdown of the articles and studies included:
1.) Flyover Lens - An intro to each book of the Bible (Essential Bible Companion)
2.) Unpack Lens - Bottom-of the page study notes & charts (NIV Study Bible)
3.) Dig Deep, Look Close Lens - Articles & photos to help you understand the historical significance of Bible passages (NIV Archaeological Study Bible)
4.) Q&A Lens - Questions & Answers (NIV Study Bible)
5.) People Lens - Notes on the 100 most important people in the Bible (NIV Student Bible)
6.) Guided Tour Lens - Detailed explanations of several Bible stories (NIV Student Bible)
7.) Insight Lens - Magazine-style articles (NIV Student Bible)
8.) R&R Lens - Reflect & Respond section (The Great Rescue, NIV)
There's also five different Bible reading plans included in this Bible:
1.) One Year Through the Bible
2.) 60-Day Overview of the Bible
3.) 20 Not-So-Famous Bible Stories
4.) 30 Days of Great Faith
5.) 30 Days with Jesus
This is one of the more expensive Kindle study Bibles that I've seen, but I understand why. This study Bible is chock full of great study resources. Definitely a great addition to your Bible study sources!
I received a copy of this e-book, free of charge, from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
