More About Zondervan Publishing
Zondervan is an American international Christian media and publishing company located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Zondervan is a founding member of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA).
Zondervan was founded in 1931 in Grandville, MI, a suburb of Grand Rapids, by brothers Peter ("P.J.", "Pat") and Bernard (Bernie) Zondervan, who were the nephews of publisher William B. Eerdmans. The company began in the Zondervans' farmhouse and originally dealt with selling remainders and publishing public domain works. The first book it published was Women of the Old Testament by Abraham Kuyper, in 1933.
Within a few years Zondervan developed titles of its own, and began publishing Bible editions. The Berkeley Version appeared in 1959, and the Amplified Bible in 1965. The NIV New Testament was published in partnership with the International Bible Society in 1973, and the complete NIV Bible appeared in 1978.
The company was bought by HarperCollins, a division of News Corp, in 1988, and is the company's principal Christian book publishing division.
Zondervan also publishes many other books by Christian authors focusing on topics of interest to Christians. In the 1970s it published The Late Great Planet Earth by Hal Lindsey, which has sold more than 30 million copies. They are also known for the Bible storytelling books of Ethel Barrett, Joni by quadriplegic Joni Eareckson Tada, Baptist minister and author Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life, which has sold more than 35 million copies, Sacred Marriage, the modern marriage classic by Gary Thomas (author), and Rob Bell, author of Velvet Elvis and presenter of NOOMA. NOOMA is a series of short spiritual films. In 2004, Zondervan expanded to include Renee Altson, Shane Claiborne, Sarah Raymond Cunningham and Margaret Feinberg, authors writing for young readers.

One of the Best Study Bibles Nov 12, 2006
I personally have a copy of this study Bible. I also purchased another for my friend and my parents. It has excellent notes and helps. I know of a Bible study group that uses this version in their study. It definitely deserves a five star rating.
This Bible's distinctiveness is that the notes and helps emphasize "life application," i.e., relevance, illustrating the biblical principle that all scripture is USEFUL "for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness" (2Tim3:15). For ex, Bible characters are made relevant, shown as warts-and-all ordinary people, in the large biographical portraits scattered throughout that highlight the characters' strengths and weaknesses. Even the Bible's appearance suggests approachability--single column format (like a novel); clear informative charts, maps and book intros in rather casual speech. However, after not so long I found myself uncomfortable with this Bible's degree of man-centeredness and with the subjectivity that entered into the notes. (For example, the Genesis account of Joseph's behavior must not necessarily lead to this Bible's leap of a conclusion that Joseph's behavior was a manifestion of "youthful pride.") Also, the notes' emphasis on application is accompanied by very superficial attention to doctrine, often only hinting at interpretations on a topic, and offering little scripture-to-scripture comparison help in connecting the dots regarding great theological themes--such as prophecy or the Church. I found myself craving substantive info, and ultimately decided it was more helpful for me to have a study Bible (like the Ryrie) heavier on doctrinal notes, leaving it to me to consider how I might personally apply scripture.
