In a research project, my colleague Tim Stafford and I discovered that although many people have a high view of the Bible and want to read it, often they never get around to it? Why not? We identified three major reasons, and designed a Bible with notes that addresses the three most common complaints:

“I can’t understand it.” –Highlights and Insights clarify confusing parts

“I can’t find it.” –A Subject Guide gives helpful guidance

“The Bible is too big and intimidating.”–A 3-Track reading plan serves as a kind of introduction

The New International Version is the most read, most trusted Bible translation, and more than six million copies of The Student Bible have been sold. It’s available in many different formats, including leather editions.
