Introductions to each book, plus in-text Insights and Highlights, explain difficult verses, point out important facts, and encourage reflection. Character Profiles introduce you to "100 People You Should Know." 3. The "Where to Find It" reference section contains a quick-reference list for locating the Bible's best-known events, a complete Subject Guide pointing you to topics of interest, and other helpful study tools.
Best of all, this edition contains the New Revised Standard Version, highly acclaimed for its accuracy and readability. Also included is a study track that takes you on a fascinating and enriching year-long tour of the Bible.
