Great Study Bible
This is a top-notch study Bible with a focus on practical Christian life. Zondervan publishes a large number of study Bibles. I do not automatically want to use the points-of-view used in these commentaries, but I very much appreciate this one. The focus in this study Bible places biblical studies within the fierce and harsh realities that define life for many people in the world. The commentary relates this world directly to our formation as Christians.
The translation is the New International Version, which seems the one used by most people I encounter in small church study and prayer groups. Biblical scholars from important evangelical denominations and institutions made the translation. For that reason, it is a Protestant translation without Apocrypha or extracanonical books.
Some critics complain that the translation is too overtly evangelical. I think that is probably a fair evaluation but not necessarily a problem for many readers, including me.
This would be a great study Bible to have in small group discussions. It would help us focus our contributions on the justice and mercy that define righteousness.
