The NIV Quick View Bible looks much like a bright, bold newspaper or magazine. This Bible has very easy-to-read text, is colorful and visually appealing. It includes a lot of full-color graphics that are not for appearance; rather they offer great information, including main points, highlights, facts and other interesting information. These information pieces provide great information and would be a very helpful resource when preparing a lesson. This Bible also could serve as a great additional study tool for the information that it provides. In a ministry setting, this might best be used with middle school youth as a classroom set for Sunday School or for a confirmation group because it provides some interesting information and is easy to read. There are many good Bibles available today, and this would be a good resource to have in your library.
The paper looks and feels like the paper that’s popular in study Bibles today. It does have some show-through. Most of the time it didn’t seem too distracting, especially with all of the graphics covering the pages.
The font looks around an 8-point with 10-point leading (8/10), but that’s just a guess. The font is very modern. The print quality generally looks nice and consistent, and not too dark or too light. There are a few pages where the print is darker than others. The print never fades.
The text is presented in two-column paragraph format. The verse numbers are slightly bolder than the text, making verses easier to find. One of my complaints of paragraph format is find the verses within the paragraph, so having verse numbers bolder than the text is appreciated.
This edition does not have references, but it does have translation notes. The notes appear at the bottom of the page, just under the last verse on the page. Notes are keyed to the text with letters in italics.
I’m a very visual reader. I like charts, grafts, and pictures. This is where the Quickview Bible really shines. There are over 360 infographics that cover the most significant Bible stories and facts. They seem to me very much like high quality Powerpoint slides. The art style is interesting. People are in silhouette and objects like flowers, musical notes, etc. are used to show the point. The graphic might take up a half column, one full column, a portion of two columns, or even a whole page.
Each book of the Bible has a graphic that says “Big Ideas in” and the book name. This graphic shows the main four or five points from the book. There are graphic associated with the points, such as a lion for the book of Daniel and Esther sitting on a throne in silhouette.
There are plenty of facts, timelines, maps, character comparisons, keywords, sermons, teachings, events, and much more. The art style itself is simple but still very colorful. This keeps the graphics from being too cluttered but they still look great.
The books of the Bible are divided into sections. There is a timeline at the beginning of each section that highlights the books that appear in that section. Each section is color-coded. The color for that section appears at the top of each page, highlighting the book name, chapter and verse numbers, and page number. The chapter and verse numbers are given in a range. On the left page is the first verse that appears and on the right page is the last verse that appears. The chapter numbers and section headings are also in the same color.
