We at Olive Tree are excited to share a new study Bible with you!
Next week Zondervan will release the NIV Zondervan Study Bible, featuring Dr. D.A. Carson as general editor. Built from the ground up to reflect the most current 21st century scholarship Dr. Carson, along with a team of over 60 contributors, crafted all-new study notes, book and section introductions, a library of articles, and other study tools that specifically focus on biblical theology, or the progressive unfolding of theological concepts through the Bible.
As you read and study with the NIV Zondervan Study Bible, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the biblical writers, the times in which they wrote, and the larger purpose of their writing in God’s story.

- Hundreds of Color Photos such as biblical artifacts are placed within the study notes.
- Over 90 Color Maps with explanatory notes are placed near relevant passages.
