Reviews - What do customers think about The Discovery Study Bible: A Guided Exploration of God's Word?

The bible that fell from the heavens!  Jul 23, 2006
If you look at all of my reviews, you will see I've reviewed a few bibles. I like to collect bibles and yes, read them. I was sure I had found "the one" in the Inductive Study Bible NIV version. I had written a glowing review about how the bible sucks you in to really, really studying it. I still like it, don't get me wrong. However, I've quit using it since I felt like all I was doing was looking for things to underline, or write on or write a symbol over. That really isn't the way to look into God's word is it? If you like that bible and when you open it, you aren't word searching for a symbol to put over it, then great! You're using a fantastic bible.

Now for this one. How is it different you ask? Simple. It already lays out the bible themes, study guides and culture clues for you that the Inductive bible makes you find. Nothing wrong with that, but I felt like I was just going through the motions with marking in the bible.

Each chapter is broken down into smaller study sessions with this bible. I love that. It tells you what to look out for and asks you questions about what you've just read. I've kept some of the inductive study method alive as I read this one, but I'm not just looking for someting to mark everytime I see a specific word or phrase.

This bible also includes self tests in the back of the bible for you to test yourself with. Another great feature is how it describes popular words throughout the bible with various meanings. Each word has several meanings when they were spoken in a specific instance, and this bible shows what specific meaning was meant when it was said. No more lugging around a Strong's dictionary!

Utlimately, I feel as though this bible fell straight from the Heavens for me to enjoy.
 
Easy Yet Challenging, Practical and Useful  Apr 23, 2006
This Bible is brilliant! It is not as academic or 'heady' as traditional study Bibles, yet it is informative enough to provide good and necessary information. This makes daily Bible study relatively easy and accessible. Yet, it is still challenging, especially the self-test questions in the Study Centres, which really make the reader think about what they have read. This Bible is great for solo use or group use. It has clear type and is well set-out, making reading easier. It only has what is necessary to impart information, which is what I like best about it. For example, it has a chain-reference system, but only necessary and important chains, unlike dedicated chain-reference Bibles. It does not focus too much on application (such as a dedicated life-dedication Bible does), but I find that by studying the Bible using the tools provided, application comes easy.
 
Good Stuff  Aug 10, 2005
This is a very good book, I love the way they published this bible. It has information for the novice and the well learned. I have recommened to everyone I know.
 
Excellent Bible, nice studies included  Oct 10, 2004
One of the unique things about this Bible is the inclusion of eight study courses for church school and small groups. The eight courses are divided into four Old Testament courses (Exploring the Pentateuch, Exploring the Historical Books, Exploring the Books of Poetry, Exploring the Books of Prophecy) and four New Testament courses (Exploring the Life of Christ, Exploring the Ministry of Christ, Exploring Paul's Letters to Churches, Exploring the Other Letters and Revelation). In addition there are 150 "Study Centers" to help you gain a deeper understanding of the passages and broaden your perspective.

Each study center has a full page dedicated to it at the location where the first verses occur. They are all similar in format and include background information, keys to understanding the most important parts of the study, assignments to complete to further your understanding, and a verse that summarizes the spiritual significance of that particular study. The study does not necessarily stay with the order of the Bible. For example, the Psalms have chapters that are related to instruction (1, 19, 119), the Reign of God (2, 72, 93, 95-100, 117, 146), the depths of despair (3, 13, 88, 130), etc. So while the study in the Psalms does not go chapter by chapter it takes the reader along a consistent theme. If, on the other hand, you have a Psalm you like and would like to investigate others that are part of that same study group then you can look at the upper right corner of the page and it indicates the appropriate study center and the page on which to locate it. This is an excellent method of Bible study which I have not seen done in this manner anywhere else.

The Discovery Study Bible uses the New International Version translation and includes many other Bible study tidbits like "Culture Clues" and "Closer Look" that are similar to other study Bibles. At the end are self tests and a dictionary where various word meanings are detailed as well as how they should be interpreted in a particular context.

An excellent study Bible, The Discovery Study Bible is a highly recommended Bible for anyone from teenagers to adults.
