NIV Study Bible
The NIV Study Bible is a study Bible originally published by Zondervan in 1985 which uses the New International Version (NIV). Revisions include 1995, a full revision in 2002, an update in October 2008 for the 30th anniversary of the NIV, and a new update in 2011 (with the text updated to the 2011 edition of the NIV). Its publisher and distributors claim over nine million sold, and claim that it is the world's best selling study bible.
Doctrinally, the NIV Study Bible reflects traditional evangelical Christian theology.
Key features of the NIV Study Bible include archaeological notes, commentary from different sources, and extensive introductions to each book. Notes from translators who worked on the NIV translation add additional clarifying information.
A new completely new NIV Zondervan Study Bible was released in August 2015, edited by Don Carson.
