A STUDY BIBLE WITH NOTES LIKE NO OTHER.

In an ambitious undertaking, Dr. D. A. Carson, along with a team of over 60 scholars from a wide range of evangelical denominations and perspectives worked over a 5-year period crafting the unique study notes and features in the NIV Zondervan Study Bible.

These leading scholars have dedicated their lives to studying individual writers, books, and sections of Scripture. Their collective wisdom is now brought together in nearly 20,000 verse-by-verse notes and additional features that pack the pages of this Bible. As you read and study, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the biblical writers, the times in which they wrote, and the larger purpose of their writing in God’s story.
