    Thank you Zondervan for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review. This is such a cool bible! As a scientist and teacher by trade, I appreciate all context facts placed in bibles. This one is the best I have come across so far! There are multiple context notes filtered throughout the bible. These are found in yellow and include facts about people, lands, and rulers, culture and history, archaeology, ancient texts and artifacts, and reliability. AMAZING. The pictures are worth it by themsel Thank you Zondervan for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review. This is such a cool bible!

These are found in yellow and include facts about people, lands, and rulers, culture and history, archaeology, ancient texts and artifacts, and reliability. AMAZING. The pictures are worth it by themselves alone! There are features that include common questions and answers, (life questions and contextual questions), statements of biblical truths, and profiles of specific bible characters. It has reading plans (including a 60 day overview of the bible), subject index, colored maps, verse study notes, bible book introductions, and a whole lot more. This bible is perfect for the new christian and the old who wants an in-depth study right at their fingertips. I just wish the bible without the sleeve looked just as cool as with it on.

    The Zondervan Starting Place Study Bible is exactly what you could hope for from a Bible by that name. I would have absolutely appreciated something like this as a new believer and can even appreciate it now. The Bible contains multiple different forms of notes to aid the reader in understanding, including character introductions, Q&A, context notes on things like history and culture, and classic study notes on the bottom of the page.

I found opposing views of scripture to be incredibly frustrating when I asked those who held them. What I would have appreciated is something like this Bible which states things simply in some places of controversy. Though the notes do come across as biased occasionally, I love that the Bible points out differences in interpretation such as the notes for Romans 9 which introduce differing soteriological (pertaining to salvation) views including Arminianism and Calvinism, without necessarily advocating for one or the other. Another thing I greatly enjoy about this Bible is that it manages to be clear, understandable, and easy to grasp without being condescending, overly simplistic, or so vague that they cannot cause a new believer to grow in the faith. The context notes touch on topics that many who are old in the faith may not even be incredibly familiar with such as ancient creation narratives and textual criticism. New believers, or those simply looking for a place to start to dig deeper into scripture will benefit from this Bible through more than just facts and notes. Throughout the Bible can be found numerous questions and answers relevant for the questioner. How do Christians practice evangelism in a culture that resists “proselytizing”? does the Bible have answers for all of today’s moral dilemmas? and what happens to a Christian between death and the day of judgment? are all questions addressed with care and wisdom. In addition to these questions that contain answers there are also many “Think” questions, which are rhetorical and inspire the reader to think about a passage or how they might respond in a given situation. The translation, NIV, is perhaps not my favourite, however, it’s easy to understand and I would argue adequately conveys the main message of the text. It is a good translation for the beginner student of the Bible. Overall, I find the study notes on the Starting Place Bible to be both clear and informative and I believe it to be an excellent place to start, both for those who are new to the faith and those who are seeking for a place to start when it comes to studying God’s word. I received a copy of this Bible in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    First off I want to thank the publishing company for sending me this AMAZING study bible. Now Bible's aren't something I normally review, but I had been looking for a great one to use to study and Zondervan was amazing enough to send me this one. I didn't go into this knowing much about this Bible, but for that I'm actually grateful, because once I got my hands on this one I was so amazed at how much it included. I want to mention how beautiful the cover is on this Bible as well as the quality First off I want to thank the publishing company for sending me this AMAZING study bible. Now Bible's aren't something I normally review, but I had been looking for a great one to use to study and Zondervan was amazing enough to send me this one. I didn't go into this knowing much about this Bible, but for that I'm actually grateful, because once I got my hands on this one I was so amazed at how much it included. I want to mention how beautiful the cover is on this Bible as well as the quality when you take off the dust jacket. I have always liked Zondervan Bibles and this one was no exception to that. They make Bibles with care and each one is made to last. Which I think is something very important, especially in a Bible that you're going to use to study with. New International Version is one of my favorite translations of the Bible so this of course was the one that I knew I wanted when I picked this one out. It is a bit larger in size, so it's not really a bible I would take to church with me on Sunday mornings, but it is one that I can use at home to read on a daily basis. I really love all the extra tid bits this Bible has. The study helpers are something I really was looking for in a great study Bible and this one didn't disappoint when it came to that at all. There is a lot jam packed in this Bible. I really enjoy the context notes as well, some of them talk about peoples, lands, and rulers others talk about things like culture and history. Again I love all the little extra's when using a great study Bible like this one.

    This is an absolutely amazing study Bible, the bonus information; references, q/a's and context this has is mind-blowing and VERY useful as well as engaging with the reader!
