The feature of the NISB that got me to switch from two other study Bibles is the self-pronouncing text. I know of no other study Bible, from any publisher, that provides that benefit to the reader--especially important to those who read the Scriptures aloud to others....it adds so much to the ease of reading all those difficult personal and place names!
-Reverend William C. B. Lowe; Camarillo, California
