This Bible’s proven, common-sense approach to studying the Scriptures appeals to high school students and college readers.

The NIV Student Bible is a helpful introduction to the Lord's Word for youth and adults who do not have experience reading the Bible;  it is also a valuable resource for more seasoned Bible readers, Sunday School teachers, and Bible study leaders. The Reading Plans and many comprehensive helps (e.g., Guided Tour of the Bible; 100 People You Should Know; notes, charts, maps and explanations) enable the novice to understand the underlying themes of the Bible and the many Biblical characters quickly, while offering deeper explanations, understanding and connections to those already familiar with the Bible.
