Love the Text and Study Notes; Formatting Needs Work Feb 11, 2010
I love the way the TNIV text reads. I can see that years of updating the NIV text did indeed make many improvements. I don't see what the huge fuss is about the gender issue, I think it improves things all the way around. It makes me sad that due to the controversy the publisher has already announced that they will discontinue this version. If you value all translations as I do, you will certainly want to get a copy of the TNIV while it is in print.
The study notes are extremely good. I have noted that in Gen.1 God creates people and tells them they may eat the fruits and plants. It is not until Gen.9 with Noah that God says they can also eat animals. And or course most of our teeth are those of the herbivore. This TNIV is the ONLY Bible whose study notes make note of that. That is just one small example, but the notes are simply terrific.
I like the one-column layout of the Bible. However I do know something about graphic design, and the layout is in my opinion ugly. The top of each page has the book title, chapter, and page numbers in boxes. The beginning chapter numbers are in huge blocks, and the worse thing to me is that the study notes are rated and illustrated with a huge blocky A,B,or C to try to indicate what KIND of study note it is (totally unnecessary in my opinion), and not terribly easy to remember what the letters even mean unless this is the only Bible you ever refer to. The small cross-reference column of related verses on each page to the left (or right) of the main text is very helpful and nicely done. The text itself is of a nice readable size. The concordance is extensive, but the font is terribly small and difficult to read. The Index to notes has a much better layout and is easier to read than the concordance, but it makes you wonder if the people designing each section compared notes with each other.
The good points about this Bible though far outweigh the issues of formatting, which could be easily fixed.
good book. great for teenagers Dec 1, 2009

REVIEW OF TNIV STUDY BIBLE Mar 22, 2009
I PURCHASED THIS STUDY BIBLE AFTER READING A BOOK CALLED "HOW TO READ THE BIBLE FOR ALL ITS WORTH" I WAS ALWAYS A READER OF THE MORE LITERAL TRANSLATIONS BUT THE AUTHORS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THE TODAYS NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION. THE STUDY BIBLE I CHOSE WAS OUTSTANDING. THE NOTES ARE GREAT AS ARE THE MAPS,AND INTRODUCTIONS TO EACH BOOK. BUT MY FAVORITE IS THE TOPICAL INDEX. THIS ENABLES THE STUDENT TO RUN SCRIPTURES ON A SUBJECT IN A MOMENTS NOTICE.
TNIV stands for Awesome Oct 3, 2008
I have spent a long time looking for a decent bible. For years, it has been either an ancient translation that is very difficult for youth (I'm a youth leader) to read, or it has been so watered down that it misses the mark entirely. The TNIV has somehow managed to find an awesome cross-roads between the two. This study bible takes it the next step and adds a tremendous amount of notes and resources right with the text. As a youth pastor, and someone who preaches with heavy regularity, I highly recommend this bible to anyone!
Excellent! Apr 12, 2008
I actually bought this Bible as a present for my brother (who'll have the pleasure of removing the shrink wrap!). I already own the British Text version (Love Your NEIGHBOUR) but I bought this North American Text version (Love Your NEIGHBOR) for my brother who lives in the United States. TNIV is one of the most accurate and helpful translations in print. In particular, where a word is neuter in Hebrew or Greek, TNIV does NOT assume a male declension - as do most Bibles. For example, Hebrews 13 opens with the word "FILADELFIA", which describes a reciprocal, sibling-like affection. The NIV uses "Keep on loving each other as brothers", while its successor (TNIV) uses "Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters". Any gender-specificity in the original Hebrew & Greek texts is, naturally, retained. For example, Proverbs 31:10 reads "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies". It doesn't say a "SPOUSE" or "PARTNER" of noble character because in this instance the author is referring explicitly to wives. In the publisher's own words, TNIV is "recommended...for its clarity, accessibility and precision of meaning".
This edition is tastefully bound in neatly-stitched European leather and comes in a semi-transparent presentation box and weighs about 1800g. The Book itself is 'thumb indexed' and contains colour maps, study notes and a concordance. The words of Jesus appear in red lettering. Ten out of ten for presentation.
