The NIV Understand the Faith Study Bible, with content from Christianity Today, provides a deep grounding in Scripture. You will appreciate the way this Bible keeps the joyful, astounding nature of the gospel always in view when addressing doctrine and the pressing questions about faith. Its content will help you understand what you believe and why while inspiring you to live for God.
My take on this Bible:
Understand The Faith Study Bible is a clean, fresh approach to what I consider a study Bible. I am used to my study Bibles having notes on each page but with this one we get plenty of articles and devotions that will allow us to grow in our faith. First of all the bright dust cover is eye catching, I will say though I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't a presentation page with this one. With that said though that's really my only complaint because this one is loaded with several great features. First of all there are short introductions to each book of the Bible. The feature titled Everyday Faith is a series of devotions linked to specific Bible passages. Another interesting learning tool was Doctrine 101 which are theology articles peppered through out the text that really get to the heart of the many doctrines that are the part of Christian belief. These articles are thought provoking and will also allow the user to grow and share the knowledge of the doctrines that are the backbone of Christian belief. There is also a glossary of theological terms, a subject index and a nice sized concordance. A great Bible for a new believer but with enough useful information that more seasoned believers will enjoy using it as well.
