My thoughts on this Bible:
I always enjoy finding a new study Bible and the NIV Faithlife study Bible has become one of my favorites. I think if I had to name one thing that makes this Bible my favorite, it would be the list of contributing authors that provide articles and notes. From Charles Stanley to Michael Heiser there are some pretty popular names. On to the other features of the Bible. The size is a bit chunky but that's because of all of the useful information within the pages. The study notes alone are tremendous and often take up more than half of each page. Plenty of maps, charts and useful articles provide great information, as well as fuel for thought. There isn't a presentation page which is something I like to see because I often like to gift Bibles. Otherwise I can't really find anything wrong with this one. A Bible that would be wonderful for beginners, but it's also great for anyone who is looking to grow in their faith. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided .
