This Gold Medallion Award-winning Bible is simply gripping because you can get a grip on it. Developed by the bestselling authors Philip Yancey and Tim Stafford, it is filled with easy-to- use features that give clear direction for discovering the riches of the Word. A subject guide, an easy-to-follow three-track reading program (two-week, six-month, and three-year plans), and introductions to each book and its major themes help the new reader chisel a way into the vast story of the Bible. In addition, character profiles introducing you to "100 People You Should Know," and a "Where to Find It" reference section containing 16 pages of full-color maps and a list of important biblical events, help to clarify the context of the stories and their importance to God's overall themes. In-text "Highlights" and "Insights" explain difficult verses, point out essential facts, and encourage reflection. For those seeking, but don't know how to begin, I wish you years of friendship with this faithful book. I know I've had mine. --Courtenay KehnFrom the Publisher:
Nearly half of the 1,000 adults randomly surveyed by the Barna Research Group recently say they rarely or never read the Bible. When pressured to explain why they don't regularly read it, most Americans give one of three reasons: I get discouraged, I don't understand it, or I can never find what I'm looking for.
When it was first released in 1986, The Student Bible attempted to meet these reasons head-on. Its two-week, six-month, and two-year reading plans, easily understandable articles appearing within the Bible text, and easy-to-use subject guide made The Student Bible a tool designed to help ordinary people regularly read, understand, and apply the Bible to their own lives.
Three million copies and ten years later, as well as consistent placement on bestseller lists, The Student Bible still seeks to meet the changing needs of today's reader, who wants a Bible that provides more information in less time.
Ergonomic changes like bleed-off tabs to key reference sections and other design modifications are meant to make using The Student Bible, as simple as point-and-click (the editors wanted to include a mouse, but they couldn't find a place on the volume to plug it in).
Popular features of the original Student Bible, such as the 3-track reading plans, are retained and new sections, like 100 people You Should Know, Well-known biblical events, and a glossary of non-biblical people mentioned in the study helps, are added.
The revised and expanded Student Bible is available with Bible text in three translations: the New International Version (NIV), the King James Version (KJV), and the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV).
