Robust study notes are built on the original languages and adapted from the popular Faithlife Study Bible app, which has reached over one million readers.

No matter where people are on their faith journey, there’s always more to explore in God’s Word.“Partnering with Faithlife—the creators of Logos Bible Software—to bring the content from their robust study Bible app into a fresh, innovative print edition in the bestselling NIV translation was a natural fit,” says Melinda Bouma, associate publisher, Zondervan Bible Group.

“Faithlife had taken on a challenging task of working from the original languages when developing these notes, creating compelling and thoughtful notes to help a reader understand the text, and, where possible, to help them explore various angles to the text,” says Bouma. “Pairing those notes with the innovative infographics in this rich, full-color Bibles makes for a powerful study experience for the curious reader.”

The balance of striking graphics, comprehensive study features, and intriguing insights from multiple points of view invites readers to dive in and feed their curiosity as they explore the treasures of God’s Word.
