An outstanding resource for the serious Bible student. The NIV text is complemented by cross-references, linking not only verses, but important passages; footnotes that explain translation alternatives, provide in-depth information about particular words and phrases, and explain obscure terms; and an extensive 35,000-entry concordance. There is also a map section, 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 around the text of over an inch wide, allowing space for individual notes. This edition is now offered in an economical but practical imitation leather cased binding. This particular Bible is not for sale in the EU.
