For me, a good study bible is essential and i usually have one open when reading a passage. And it is good to have a study bible for your go to translation, if not specific ones for each translation you use frequently.

I started using accordance when i moved to mac from windows because it was included on the zondervan cd with the original niv study bible.

My accordance library grew and i started using the esv study bible in preference to the niv because of the 200 maps in addition to the quality of the notes and the tagged esv was included in all accordance ios package.

I eventually got this updated niv zondervan study bible when it was on sale at a very good price because of the reviews but like bat man's review, i have failed to see what the Hype is about.

The formatting is better than the original study bible with links to other notes rather than links to other passages and then having to find the attached note. But the notes are not desperately enlightening and i still use the ...

The formatting is better than the original study bible with links to other notes rather than links to other passages and then having to find the attached note. But the notes are not desperately enlightening and i still use the original niv study bible in preference despite the slightly more convoluted way of getting to referenced notes. For articles i still go to the jps study bible and jewish annotated nt study bible. For maps, the esv study bible, not sure if i have mentioned that before.

At church, our standard is the nrsv and while i wait for the oxford annotated study bible to be available in accordance for notes on the apocrypha, i use the esv as my go to study bible with the nrsv, because the translation tradition is very similar, the notes but especially the maps! This is followed by the jps or jant depending what i am looking at, then the original niv study bible and in that order!

It took me ages to decide to get this particular resource and I use it occasionally only because i have it, but having bought it and used it for a while, i find i could quite happily have continued to live without it as i only refer to it after the others listed above if and when i have plenty of time to click through the resources on ios.

For me the esv is the must have study bible as it works with any translation but especially the tagged esv which comes with accordance. The niv zondervan is a nice to have study bible if the niv is your bible translation of choice and you havent managed to get the original 2002 niv study bible in accordance.

With DA Carson's name attached to this project, I am extremely disappointed as to the simplicity of the notes. Simplistic is often a good thing. Unfortunately, with this work, it's horrible.
Genesis 1:28, God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number;...
The notes state God wants us to increase in number.
Seriously? THAT is their "educational" notes?
And it just does not seem to get much better.

When I purchased the Zondervan NIV Study Bible, I mistook it for the far superior NIV Study Bible, by Zondervan.

Due to it's overly simplistic notes, that I am not so sure were written by first graders, I could never recommend this Study Bible or it's notes. In the scholastic world, a paper written with such uninformative content would be returned to the student demanding a complete overhaul, rewrite and told they should be ashamed for such a low standard of workmanship.

No, I do not recommend this. And, I am shocked that DA Carson, or Zondervan published this s ...

I like Study Bibles. I have spent many hours examining them. This Bible has no parallel. It is very thick and heavy in paper, but the resources are abundant. Accordance excels in so many areas to lead you into further study of God's word. This Bible can help you fill in the holes of the Old Testament and New Testament like nothing I've ever seen. For example, there are color maps within the text specific to the passage. You will also find section and book introductions illustrated with pictures of archaeological finds and Christian art as well as many charts that are specific to the passage. These cover this Bible from beginning to end. Think of using Accordance with this resource where you can associate it with any version, right arrow to your other study Bible notes, or set up a study Bible workspace with them all side by side. The hyperlinked Scripture references can be opened in another pane with a simple ctrl (pc) or command (mac) click! I personally used the notes from ...

I personally used the notes from Revelation to do an 8 week study in a church on Wednesday nights. The charts within help bring the Bible to life. Do yourself a favor and get these notes. I received nothing to make this post, I am simply amazed and wanted you to know.
