Book Description

 The NIV Understand the Faith Study Bible 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 Review

 I am reviewing the hard copy version of the NIV Understand the Faith Study Bible.

The features in the NIV Understand the Faith Study Bible are:
  • 66 insightful book introductions
  • 104 Everyday Faith illuminating stories and anecdotes for twice-weekly study
  • 25 thought-provoking Culture Connections articles
  • 40 interesting Living Parables commentaries on the lives of Christian influencers throughout history
  • 75 in-depth features on the major aspects of Christian Doctrine
  • 12 simple, visually compelling Up for Debate tables present multiple viewpoints on specific topics
  • 8 charts and graphs illustrating interesting theological issues
The NIV Understand the Faith Study Bible is an easy on the eyes bible. My aging eyes have no problem reading the print (some bibles have terribly small print). I am enjoying the features of this bible such as the Doctrine 101 sections that explore the major themes of the Bible. On page 646 there is a Doctrine 101 section on The Lord's Prayer. On pages 1162 and 1163 there is a section on the differing perspectives of Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestants...very enlightening.  I like the Everyday Faith stories that help connect us to God's Word. At the end there is a Glossary of Theological Terms which is very helpful. There is an excellent Concordance at the very end.

This is a great bible for a Christian who is exploring the bible in depth.  The NIV Understand the Faith Study Bible is an exciting addition to my bible reference collection.
