My Reaction:
This bible gives the reader a genuine text analysis in the new international version. The font size is very readable and a larger print than most study bibles. The pages are thicker than most study bibles - double columns pages provide ample space and durability for note taking and writing in the margins. The easy to reference definitions are helpful – the color maps are a good addition.

Overall, a good addition to any library and my first go to study bible.
