Good Translation, Poor Presentation Feb 15, 2010
As far as the translation goes, I really like the TNIV. It is an updated version of the NIV. But Zondervan's personal edition's print is too small. For print this small, they could have chosen a better font. Part of my problem might be that the pages are so thin, that you can see the flip side through the paper. Either way, it's hard to read. And I prefer the study notes found in the Nelson Study Bible. If you compare the two, the Nelson just gives you more and better information, especially on hard or controversial passages. It's not that the Zondervan's notes are *bad*, it's just that the Nelson's are better. If the Nelson came in NIV or TNIV, it would be perfect! But it doesn't, so I find myself doing this: I read the TNIV on my Blackberry and use the Nelson's notes for reference, while this Bible sits on the shelf collecting dust. If you are going to buy this Bible anyway, do yourself a favor and buy the larger version. If I could break down my rating, I'd do it this way: Translation: 5 out of 5 stars. Study Notes: 3 out of 5 stars. Print/pages: 1 out of 5 stars.

Today's New International Version Personal sized Study Bible Jun 30, 2009
This bible excels in three qualities: accuracy, pithiness, and thoroughness. Firstly, let's keep it real -- we're talking about the all time best selling written work, so it's quite difficult to go wrong there. However, arguably the most important factor in question regarding a Bible's use with scholars and Christians alike is the accuracy. A problem often comingling with accuracy is complexity. When a written work is accurate, it is often painstakingly difficult to understand, an assessment the benchmark King James Version of the Bible often finds itself receiving. This is where the pithiness of the Today's New International Version study Bible shines profoundly. It maintains accuracy without being difficult to understand. The scholars compiling this translation have put in an alarming amount of work in choosing the right contemporary words to replace the traditional. Oftentimes, when that's done a tremendous amount of meaning is lost in translation; that setback is kept to a near negligible minimum in this Bible. Finally, in consequence of giving scholars something heartier to savor, this Bible excels in Its comprehensiveness. Its comprehensiveness comes through in the study notes provided for it -- remember, It is a study Bible. The study notes, located at the lower part of the pages, can be used when the reader desires a more detailed background of what's being read; however, those proverbial training wheels can be removed as the reader's insight and understanding get increasingly refined through just reading the verses at the top.
In short, this Bible is tailor-made for whatever type of Biblical reader one may be -- from the curious beginner to the seasoned scholar. You'd be granting yourself a strong supplement in purchasing one.
Good study bible Feb 8, 2008
This is a marvelous study bible, with a average good dynamique translation. Charts, illustrations, parallels, introductions.
Good complement to NET Bible (study edition) for example.
Great translation and study bible Dec 4, 2007
I have recently read up on the "TNIV debate" and have decided that the TNIV is a perfecty good translation that has been sadly maligned. It is even better than the NIV in terms of readability. This study bible is essentially the NIV study bible adapted for the TNIV. It has excellent notes, maps and references. The layout is attractive although the print is a bit small. The paper is somewhat thin but the hardcover binding seems pretty solid. I recommend both the translation and the study notes.
