Zondervan NIV Stewardship Study Bible 1984

I bought this Bible because of the price, I have a study bible for myself. However, this will make a great present for that special someone who is looking to study the Bible in greater detail.
Thanks so much!

Working in a non-profit ministry, finding funding can be a huge part of my job. At least that is what I used to think. The book "The Sower" really changed my thinking from fun-raising to stewardship. The book recommended working through this study bible to learn more about stewardship. I now understand that it is God's job to do the fund-raising and my job to plant and steward, not just the funds he brings in, but the people he brings in as well. Finally, I loved the fact that all of the studies, examples and references came from leaders in a number of Christian denominations and not just from one denominational viewpoint.

I ordered this Bible to get me to thinking about others in the world and what they have and do not have. I ordered one for my daugher so that she could have the same spiritual experience also. We all need to reach out more to other Christians in the world and pray for them.

I was looking forward to adding the Stewardship Bible to my set of Bible Study tools - but as an e-book, it would not work. Links to footnotes and articles did not function. I installed the e-book on both a Android Tablet and on my Tablet PC - neither seemed to work well. Being a regular user of ebooks, both for Bible Study (LOGOS) and for pleasure reading (Nook and Kindle), I thought I was ready for this purchase. However, the book was basically useless - I ended up returning the e-book for a refund. I do appreciate CBD refunding my money - I wish that they did not need to do so.
Bottom line - not worth the purchase.

The last time or two I have ordered Bibles from your company,the quality of paper seems to be like recycled paper. I would prefer better quality paper. Maybe it's the texture that feels different.

I love this Bible and let me tell you the reasons why. It is like having the NIV Reference Bible and all of these great studies and notes on being a good steward in one Bible. So many times, people think stewardship is just about money when it's not. It is really about being a steward over every area of your life. The print maybe a little small, but it is darker and to be honest easier to read then the NIV Study Bible. I think that is the main reason I was drawn to it. I am 55, yet I could read it just fine. Also, I love the fonts, the lay out and the colors they use in this. The mixture of browns and tans with the darker font make it easy on the eyes to read. The recycled paper is good and not too thin. I use a marking system and nothing bled through to the other side of the paper. The paper is thicker then some Bibles. The imitation leather feels good and not really fake like some of the so called leather Bibles. The size is about the size of the NIV Study, which is large but I really like the way it feels in my hands.Another thing I like about this, is that they put the verses in brackets and the reference notes are in the middle. There is enough space on the margins and the top of the page to make notes. There is one thing I do need to point out. On Zondervan's site and on here, it says that it is red letter. It is not red letter at all. All of the words of Christ are in black. But I prefer that when it comes to marking. So if you are a fan of black letter, this is a great reason to get it. I am an music minister and counselor and plan on using this as one of my main Bible. The only complaint that I have is that some of the print on the pages is not straight. You can see that some of it is slated down and not lined up perfect. That is a minor issues and I am sure is not the same in all the Bibles. It is a great reference and study Bible. You can download some samples of the Bible on Zondervan's website.
