  1. I guess I’m one of those who thinks the color is MORE engaging instead of less–so that’s not an issue for me. I think it enhances the reading experience. I also appreciate the fact that they used two different fonts, one for the biblical text and one for the notes. That way there’s never a question about which portion is the text of scripture. No doubt there are some who, if it were presented in the same font, might think the notes are part of the biblical passages. Thanks for doing this informative review, Tim.

    • Jimmy, your welcome. As I’ve continued to use the NIV SB, the color aspect has grown on me quite a bit. I’m still not sure about the fonts, though. However, the color aspect has definitely grown on me.

  2. Nice review, Tim. It;ll be fun to watch your comments on YouTube. I did a review of the NIV Reference Bible a while back. 99% of the people who comment are loons. It’s hilarious.
