I have had this Bible for about 12 years now. I love reading it and the messages that are written on the outer columns. I have other Bibles that I use also, but this is the one that I love to just read. I am involved in various studies as a participant and as leader. I recommend this NIV to the young Christian Woman. The outer columns are both helpful and understandable to the new or young Christian Woman. I highly recommend this NIV Bible.
I had this book in a soft cover and it was so wonderful and I carried it so much that it literally fell apart on me. The hard copy is just what I needed.BBesides the obvious need and function, it gives so many other highlights and information on the side lines, that you get such a full understanding of the depth of whats going. Keeps everything you are reading in perspective!! LOVE IT!!
I enjoy this Bible so much because of the Bible Study and the explanation it gives of bible verses on the sides of the pages. It gives you a better understanding of the verse. Also this bible give encouraging mini inserts through out the bible. Also I like the paper the bible is made of. I like the paper back cover.
