The American Bible Society is an interdenominational, non-profit, donor-supported ministry whose mission is to make accurate and affordable translations of the Bible available to everyone. Founded in New York City in 1816, ABS is dedicated to presenting the Bible in compelling ways so that people can experience life in its fullness through faith in Jesus Christ. ABS is responsible for a number of "firsts": the first Bibles provided to the U.S. military in 1817, the first pocket Bibles for soldiers during the Civil War, and the first Bibles in hotels. The society extends its outreach internationally through the United Bible Societies (UBS), a fellowship of 126 international groups, and was instrumental in founding this global fellowship in the interest of efficiency and making a greater impact. In 1999 alone, more than 63 million copies of the Society's publications were distributed throughout the United States and the world.

Excellent Sep 11, 2008
Excellent book. Quick delivery. Was the right book for my daughters college course.
Wonderful illustrations but binding is of very poor quality Aug 27, 2008
First, always remember: a Bible is a Bible. That is, if it's a New International Version Bible, as this one is, the text is the same no matter what bells and whistles are added to the particular edition. Second, this edition has the best and widest variety of illustrations and art reproductions I've ever seen. The margin notes are helpful mainly for beginning to advanced beginning Bible students, but the illustrations are wonderful for everybody. But third, unfortunately, the binding is very, very poor quality and is already pulling apart after only sitting upright on my shelf for about three months! I hate that; to do such a superb job on the illustrations and then put such a poor quality binding on the book is unpardonable. I would have rated this much higher, probably five stars, if the binding had been of acceptable quality.
Great learning Bible Mar 24, 2008
I think the Bible is wonderful but I purchased it from Life Way, instead of this site. I ordered from this site but they neglected to ship it so I cancelled then paid extra at Life Way for the same book - but I got it in time for my college course!
Honest and Understandable Mar 15, 2008
If you have ever been frustrated with one sided study Bibles, you'll appreciate this Bible. Usually study Bibles only give you one option - fundamentalist or mainline. You'll never know from reading these study Bibles if there is a genuine disagreement between scholars on any particular text or subject because they will never tell you. They simply give you their dates, their interpretations, their biases. This Bible avoids this extreme by giving interpretations that have a broad consensus in Christian scholarship, and when there is disagreement they usually try to say something like "some scholars think this, but others think this." While it's not perfect, and you probably will disagree with it at some point, it does give an honest treatment of scripture. It is also written in language that anyone can understand making it a good study Bible for lay people (if you are in seminary, you will find some of the content a little basic - but it is still very good). If you only want to read commentary that agrees with you on every point, don't get this Bible. If you want the people in your church to only know one side of a particular debate don't give them this Bible. But otherwise, I highly recommend it.
