The incomparable NIV Wide-Margin Edition is not only a beautiful Bible, but it is also an outstanding resource for the serious Bible student. The NIV text is complemented by 50,000 references, linking not only verses, but important passages too. Footnotes offer translation alternatives; elucidate on particular words and phrases; and explain obscure terms. This Bible offers an unparallelled 35,000-entry concordance - the most extensive concordance ever bound together with an English Bible. Key words such as 'salvation' and 'holiness' are asterisked, enabling the reader to explore these themes by working through the references in turn. There is also an attractive 16-page map section at the back of the Bible, showing the Bible world at different times and marking important routes, such as the terrain traversed by the Patriarchs and the Journeys of St Paul. The pages have margins of over 1", allowing space for individual notes. The Bible is printed on gilt-edged paper and bound in black calfskin leather.

NIV Wide-Margin Black Calfskin Bible Mar 8, 2007
There are not many wide-margin Bibles in top quality leather binding on the market, unless you want to have it custom done. I wanted a wide-margin with good concordance and cross reference while not being as large as my Thompson Chain Reference, for example, which is still the top chain reference Bible available today. The paper is of very top quality, the margins are indeed wide for personal notes while retaining excellent cross reference and brief notations. The leather is top quality and apparently indestructible in its toughness. Unfortunately that gives you a very stiff cover. It is hoped it will eventualy "wear-in" to more flexible use. In any case I am pleased with it for the purpose for which I purchased it.
A great bible. Aug 15, 2005
I did some research before I bought this bible. I was concerned with how it was bound because I previously purchased a soft cover with glue bindings that has fallen apart in a few years. I am impressed with its bindings, leather cover and readability, as well as for its wide margins. I have started taking notes in it and I actually have more room than my notes, but I write very small. The only thing I would have wanted were finger tabs, I put my own tabs in it and reinforced them. It reads exactly like an American NIV, so no problem with it coming out of England. I am very very happy with it, both size and contents.
A true work of art! Mar 31, 2005
I recently purchased a Cambridge NIV (NIVWM207) wide margin edition. In short, it's simply a beauty!
The leather, paper, and binding are top notch. The wide margin is generous enough to permit note taking, but not so huge as to make the book too big to carry. The paper is beautiful, and the print pleasant and sharp. One of the things that I really like about this Bible is that while it is very high quality, it is also easy to carry because it does not include a huge amount of "helps" along with the text. (I prefer to use a Strong's Concordance, Bible dictionary, and commentary separate from the text. That way you have a better concordance & etc. without lugging around a HUGE Bible.) It does however, contain a respectable concordance, and just about the right amount of maps.
My only complaint is that the printing is a hair smaller than I would like. They probably did this to keep the size down while allowing the generous margins.
All in all, this is one really nice Bible. It would make a great gift Bible, or a great daily Bible if you, like me like to use separate books for "helps."
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT WAS ADVERTISED Mar 3, 2005
NIV Wide Margin Reference Bible (US) Black calfskin art gilt edges NIVWM207
This picture is misleading. I guess I should have noticed the description said "black". I believed from this image that this was going to be the cover w/a soft suede-like pinkish leather.What came is a really nice black leather with simple gold letters on the cover. There is a page where you can write an inscription (surrounded by a printed "frame"). The edges are gold leaf. I just thought you should know this if looking for a gift. The leather is nicer than that on my leather chair. Good feel, should hold up nicely. I was looking for an heirloom quality bible, and thought the description/picture of this was nice. I am actually more pleased with the simplicity of the bible I received than what is shown.
The interior is the same as the example. The text shows through from the back a bit, but not as bad as I have seen before. Will probably get a "special pen" for notetaking. I actually ordered three bibles.
One was a chronological organization-- this was just for my own study so I can get times organized in my head. The One Year Chronological Bible [Paperback] By: Tyndale House--- THIS IS EXCELLENT! I LOVE IT!
I also ordered a paperback copy of Zondervan NIV Study Bible, Personal Size [Paperback] as this has lots and lots of notes (archeological/historical/contextual)--which I like to enhance the experience. If they would have had this in a wide-margin high quality version, that is what I would have chosen.
This, the third bible, I chose to pass on to children or a niece after I pass. I plan to take notes in the margins as I am always writing on the programs at church. Now, I can write in the margins. The margins are almost equally spaced all the way around (so you get the top and the bottom). Also I like to interact with the text. This also has a verse referencing system in the center. Read a few pages and it will not bother you any more.
If they made one bible that had everything I wanted, I am afraid it would be too inconvenient to transport. This bible is a manageable size and I found a leather cover for it at Sam's Club for about $10.
When shopping for a bible, consider what you are looking to do with it, how you study best, how you can interact with the text, also what version and quality you want. I upgraded from an off the shelf paperback from a used bookstore. The binding on that is frayed and broken.
This time I decided I wanted something that would last. This is excellent quality. Some bibles I also consider that are available in a "good" quality leather: Zondervan NIV Wide Margin Bible but the width of the one column format was so wide that my eyes lost tracking after awhile. I also considered Zondervan's Quest Bible, which had some ample margin space, but after reading some of the interpretive answers to questions, found that there was too much speculation that is not scripturally supported. I am gaining discernment; but if I do pass this along someday to a child or grandchild, I don't want them to be mislead. I recommend getting a bible, that, if anything is added, is only historical or contextual information to give a framework to the writing. Editors, in my opinion, should not be giving interpretation and moralizing as this is dangerous. Inside the bible is not the place to do that. I can't remember chapter and verse where it warns about this, but it is somewhat of a concern.
My husband pointed out that the cost of this Bible which will most likely last the rest of my life and perhaps a grandchild's life is really very small. The paperbacks will wear out in a few years if you are using them and toting them around. This bible will last.
great bible for general use Sep 21, 2003
This is a great bible for general use. It has plenty of space for taking notes. I have started writing down questions that arise as I read to be answered later. The size is not to big, unlike most wide margin bibles that are huge. I like the red letter for Christ's spoken words. If there was a NASB version it would be the perfect bible.
