Book Sneeze NIV Essentials Study Bible


This edition includes the entire NIV Bible text (NIV and TNIV combination) with the world’s best notes for learning. One of the nice things is that in the table of contents, the spotlights are also listed. 

Besides the archaeological study notes, and the historical back grounds, there are study notes to help break down "Christian-ese" so newer believers can decipher what is being said. It does not take for granted that the reader knows "what does it mean to pray?" "...to love my neighbor?",  "...are good works necessary for eternal life?". This brings together all levels of one's spiritual journey. 
Page 1203 Has a Reflect and Respond devotional section prompting you to read, think, live and take it to the next level on prayer. Why do we pray? What does G-d's word say and why? 
It is suitable for those just discovering the Bible and those who are interested in what Josephus said, timelines, charts, and cultural context. There are also promots to personal application "How would you respond to...?" , "Why do you believe...?" This is a great resource for your personal devotions and can enrich your time spent in Scripture.
