"I would like to put this in the hands of every teacher. I have long searched for a simply written study Bible that engages our thoughts and also stimulates personal spiritual growth. I became engrossed in it and was reluctant to put it aside."

- Delia Halverson, Christian Education and Curriculium Specialist, Faith Discovery Ministries

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 adds so much to the ease of reading all those difficult personal and place names!
