The NIV Readers Bible is a really nice book. Hardcover, well bound that comes in a protective sheath.
Do you know what a reader’s bible is?
Well.. A reader’s bible is one that doesn’t break up the whole bible into chapters and verses. You just open it and read it like any other book. No headers to interrupt the flow, no verses to break up a sentence of thought. Just straight-forward text to make just setting down and reading a pleasure.
Now this version puts reference notes at the top… so that let’s say you are reading along and go.. ooh.. interesting thought, let me grab my commentary and explore that a bit more.. you don’t end up having to find a bible with verses to track it down. The quiet page header let’s you know where abouts you are in the book and you can just look up that thought catcher easily.
I love how this bible has the 10.5 point type font printed in a single column, reading just like a regular book. The footnotes are included at the end of every book. The footnotes are broken down per chapter. The lovely grey ribbon is excellent for holding your place.
This Bible was designed to provide a seamless reading experience. This bible is so well made. Cloth over book cover, easy reading font. Cause you know how most bibles have this tiny font… this one doesn’t.. It feels good in the hand, not too heavy, kinda like a regular bible for weight, but nice a solid like a normal book.
As with any bible, there is a set of references in the back, helping you understand the historical measurements and other such things.
