This is a beautiful Bible, with all the study helps and references I have come to rely on in a study Bible.
Physical characteristics: The copy I received has a beautiful, soft leather-like feel . It is perfect size, comfortable to carry and perfectly fits on my lap. There are also two attached bookmark ribbons. The pages are nicely “Bible” thin, with gold edges. The type and font are a bit small for my preference, but certainly not unreadable. I also appreciate the scripture references for each page are located at the top outside edges – making it easier to quickly find the passage of scripture I am looking for.
Content considerations: Study helps are located at the bottom of each page, making it easy to quickly reference the in depth commentary as you are reading. The beginning of each book contains information such as Vital Statistics, Timelines, The Blueprint and Megathemes that are specific to that book of the Bible.
At the back of this Bible is included a 365-Day Reading Plan, Master Index, Index to Charts, Index to Maps, as well as an extensive NIV Dictionary/Concordance.
Overall, I highly recommend the NIV Life Application Study Bible, Third Edition.
