Pros:Tons of articles, pictures, maps, information about the archaeological side of the bible.

Cons:Too big to take to bible study.

The Bottom Line: This is a really great bible and offers a lot of information. It is worth the price.


Want to know more about the historical, cultural, and archaeological side of the bible? Then you have come to the right place! The Zondervan Archaeological Study Bible will throw you off your feet, and you won't want to put it down!

This bible has full-color interior throughout, and over 500 color photographs. It is also the bestselling New International Version translation. From the moment you open the front cover you will know your on a great journey of knowledge.

There are also over 500 articles that cover five categories. This includes Ancient Texts and Artifacts, Cultural and Historical Notes, Ancient Peoples Lands and Rulers, Archaeological Sites, and Ancient Voices.

Over 8,000 study notes highlight historical, archaeological, and cultural topics.

Words of Christ in Red.

This is really a unique bible and offers a big treat to anyone who is interested in the history and archaeological side of the Word. It is 2306 pages and has colored maps in the back. There is also a table of weights and measures, glossary, subject index to articles, list of articles in alphabetical order, list of articles by scripture reference, concordance, and index to color maps.

In the beginning of each book there is a introduction. In the introduction this includes: Author, Place and Date of Writing. Audience. Cultural Facts and Highlights, Timeline, As You Read, Did You Know?, Themes, and Outline.

Some of the pictures include (and this isn't even half of half): Roman era stone bath, Warren's Shaft, The "War Scroll" from Qumran, The temple at Medinet Habu where the victory of Rameses III over the Sea Peoples is commemorated, Philistine anthropoid coffin, Priestly tassels, Early bronze age round altar area at Megiddo, the early bronze city of Arad, the Capernaum Synagogue, etc.

There are just way too many pictures to name! They are all in great quality and you can see all the small details.

I bought this book for $79.99 at the Christian Bookstore. The one I bought is leather and put together great! This is a bible so well put together that I believe it will last my whole life and be passed down in the family.

This is such a thick bible that we bought this as a family bible for our living room. I don't really see me carrying it around like for bible study because it is just so big and heavy. Personally I prefer the smaller bibles. So for me this is a great family bible, and made in such a way it looks great sitting on the coffee table. It also has so much to it, and is so unique, that guests who come over will really love to take a look.
