Praise for the NIV Zondervan Study Bible▼▲
"This NIV Zondervan Study Bible is a tremendous tool for informed Bible reading and study. The notes are written by the best assembly I've seen of faithful, international scholars. I highly recommend this publication."
Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City
"The NIV Zondervan Study Bible is a magnificent achievement. The illustrations are stunning and the maps are expertly done. Most important, the content in both the articles and the commentary is superb. Every Bible reader and person in ministry should turn to it often for help."
Dr. Thomas R. Schreiner,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"This is a Study Bible like no other! Hess and Alexander on Genesis. Waltke on Proverbs. Carson on the Gospel of John. Moo on Romans. Introductions. Notes explaining "what this means" and tracking the Bible's own developing themes. About 30 essays on major biblical themes. Historical guides. A distinctive biblical-theological approach. Deeply informed throughout. What more could we want? It's not every study Bible that brings a layman-accessible seminary education with it, but this one surely does. It does not take a prophet to predict that many who do not already use the NIV will begin using it now just because of the learning this Study Bible delivers."
Calvary Baptist Seminary
Reformed Baptist Church of Franconia, PA
"With brand-new notes and maps, pictures of the land and artifacts, and more thorough introductions to the biblical books, this interactive Bible will serve a new generation of serious Bible readers in a whole new way. I can't wait to get mine."
Grand Rapids Theological Seminary
"Written by a noted and trustworthy team of scholars, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible offers valuable insight at every turn."

ALS5 Stars Out Of 5Good BibleMarch 28, 2018ALSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I ordered these to give as gifts to people in our church who might not have a bible. Good quality, good price, The bibles were shipped in a timely manner. I choose NIV version because its easier to read.
Kevin S.1 Stars Out Of 5You would be well advised to stay clear of this purchase.March 9, 2018Kevin S.Quality: 2Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1This is not a good value. Specifically, the paper is so thin "ghosting" (bleed through from the opposite page) is a problem with readability. Additionally, the print runs to the edge of the page to the extent that it is difficult to read the text/notes in the book's gutter. As a result, note taking on that inside portion of the page is out of the question.
This Bible does have beautifully presented maps and photos throughout. With that said, for the first time in 20+ years of doing business with ChristianBook.com I'm returning this product.

Ruth4 Stars Out Of 5Great Bible, Not Large PrintFebruary 9, 2018RuthQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Everything is great on this Bible but the text size is not what i would call large. I understand that a larger text size would make the Bible much larger and heavier. Those buy it should buy a magnifier sheet that CBD sells.
Jamie MGender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5Good Study Bible, But the NIV Study Bible is BetterDecember 20, 2017Jamie MGender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3This review is for the NIV Zondervan Study Bible (NIVZSB) Large-Print, Soft Leather-Look, Chocolate/Caramel. I've only had this Study Bible for a couple of weeks but wanted to provide my initial observations and hope they will prove helpful to other customers.
1. The NIVZSB arrived promptly and in perfect condition. Christianbook.com is first-rate when it comes to packaging and shipping and their pricing is unbeatable. Keep up the good work!
2. PROS: Zondervan as usual has done a tremendous job assembling this study Bible and should be commended for the quality and care that continues to go into designing and manufacturing their products.
- Attractive, durable, easy-to-open box. A great way to store your study Bible when not in use.
- Beautiful cover, but if you prefer soft leather you'll want to buy the premium leather ebony edition.
- This is a BIG Bible! I like it because I don't plan on carrying it to church but reading at home.
- Smyth-sewn binding is top-notch and lays perfectly flat right out of the box.
- Bright, high-quality paper.
- Bible text is line-matched on both sides of the page to reduce ghosting and make it easier to read.
- Font size is 9.5 (text) and 8 (study notes), same size as the standard-print NIV Study Bible.
- This edition has PLENTY of white margin space for note taking, especially in the Psalms.
- FULL color, 60 charts, 90 maps, hundreds of photos throughout the text.
- Solid evangelical contributors to the study notes and articles.
- Study notes emphasize biblical theology (inductive) vs. systematic theology (deductive). Both are important ways of approaching the text.
3. CONS: Before mentioning let me just say that no one study Bible is perfect, and there will always be something that a student of the Word would want to have or like to have included that isn't. If you're new to the study Bible scene, you should know that Zondervan also produces the best-selling NIV Study Bible (2011) which has been in print since 1985 and over the decades has continued to be improved, revised and expanded. It too comes in FULL color. If you're on a limited budget or looking to purchase your first-ever study Bible, you may want to consider the NIV Study Bible over the NIV Zondervan Study Bible for the following reasons:
- This large-print edition is NOT large print! Again, it's the same size as the standard-print NIV Study Bible.
- It's a way BIGGER Bible. Almost the size of a full sheet of paper, except it's 3 inches thick! A full 1-inch taller and 1/2-inch wider and thicker than the NIV Study Bible.
- The narrow font used for the Bible text is not my favorite. The NIV Study Bible has a much nicer, readable font.
- Single column text. Might be a PRO to some but I'm used to the double-column format.
- The NIVZSB has 35,000 cross references. Which is great, except the NIV Study Bible has 100,000.
- The NIVZSB does not have as many practical maps, charts and diagrams as does the NIV Study Bible.
- The study notes are comparable to the NIV Study Bible: more helpful in some areas, less helpful in others.
- The NIVZSB is more academic in its approach; the NIV Study Bible more practical.
- The NIVZSB is more Reformed/Calvinist in its theology; the NIV Study Bible a broader evangelical theology.
- This NIVSB has the same theological profile as the ESV Study Bible and shares many of its features. This new offering by Zondervan seems to be their answer to the overwhelming success of the ESV Study Bible, with the exception of its emphasis on biblical (vs. systematic) theology. The video by Don Carson suggests the NIVZSB is complementary to the ESV Study Bible in this regard.
In short, the NIVZSB is a well-made study Bible worthy of use, but for me personally it will not serve as my primary study Bible. In terms of practicality and overall helpfulness, the NIV Study Bible (2011) is definitely the better choice in my opinion and will continue to be my go-to study Bible. If you do intend on purchasing the NIVZSB, trust me, even if you have good eyesight you will want to get the large print edition.
