NIV Bible Handbook

by Alister McGrath


Price: £18.99
Publisher:Hodder and Stoughton
Published:April 2014



Perhaps you don't want to carry around a study bible, or just don't like your bible cluttered with study material. But at the same time, if you do want something that has a similar depth and feel about it as you'd find in a study bible for when you do want to do some bible study then you can't really go wrong with this gently comprehensive, intelligible and insightful Bible Handbook to work alongside your own standard NIV bible.

With content written by Alister McGrath, originally back in 1995 but now revised and updated to go along with the updated translation of the NIV and to incorporate any new knowledge within biblical studies, this is a very well presented book indeed with the incorporated maps (line drawn only - no photographs), charts, concordance, commentary, questions and more. And at only £18.99 for this weighty hardback edition you are getting a pretty good deal for your money.
