To say that the NIV Study Bible has been my companion would be an understatement. This has been my primary Bible for over two decades. It has nine sticky notes that take me to my favorite charts. The cross referencing and notes have led me on many adventures and discoveries of fresh truths. I have lugged it all over the world with me and spilled a few cups of coffee on its pages. Many sermons, books, articles and personal notes have been written and delivered with the accompaniment of my good friend. When I learned that there is a new and improved edition coming out it seemed almost a bit unbelievable, but count me in.
---Pastor Randy Frazee

Many helpful features are included to aid the reader from its beautiful design to the historical, archeological, and cultural context provided, as well as the teaching on literary styles in the text and how they factor in reading. I love seeing all the typology pointed out in the notes. Another feature I like is that the contributors show different interpretations of a text and don't lean one way or the other. This is my new go-to study bible to recommend to others. Very nicely done. "

"These excellent study notes make the world of scholarship easily accessible, with carefully balanced summaries that are fair to both sides of any theological divides."
---Rev. Dr. David Instone-Brewer
Senior Research Fellow in Rabbinics and the New Testament, Tyndale House
"What a treasure this new study Bible is! The concise study notes are well chosen, drawing attention to important themes and interconnections. Difficult texts are explained clearly and conservatively; controversial issues are discussed even-handedly. Even more valuable, I believe, are the numerous notes and articles which explain the distinctive history and literature we encounter in Scripture. The Bible is the product of ancient cultures, and understanding those cultures and their literary conventions not only enriches our understanding of the text, but equips us to defend the Bible against contemporary challenges to its truthfulness. As the theological articles demonstrate, these human words add up to one, perfect, divine message, a message which spans history and culminates in the Word become flesh. Above all, may this Bible enable its readers to know and love the Lord Jesus more deeply."
---Dr. Andrew Shead
Head of Old Testament, Moore Theological College

I liked it so much that I gifted many copies to my family and friends and continue to encourage others to read it."
---Rev. Dr. Paul Swarup
Presbyter in Charge of the Cathedral Church of the Redemption, Diocese of Delhi, of the Church of North India
"The NIV is my go-to translation, and the NIV Study Bible the trusted, one-volume resource I have eagerly recommend to anyone looking for a great tool to study the Bible."
