The NIV Thinline Bible captures the depth and beauty of the Bible, in a take-anywhere size. With a new custom typeface, this Bible delivers a more pleasant reading experience, making it even easier to understand God’s Word.
This Bible has a nice cover, and an easy to read font. The new font, adds breaks to the letters to ease the reading. I wasn’t a big fan of the new font, but that doesn’t mean that another person won’t love it. It’s the reason kindles allow for multiple font types. I also tend toward the larger print Bibles.
This Bible has several features that I enjoy in a Bible, especially as a Bible teacher. There are a couple of features that are important. Such as, the weight of the Bible in your hands as you are teaching, especially if you teach standing. While a larger font is nice for teaching, this font was not so small that it became an obstacle. Another nice feature of this Bible is the lie-flat feature. It won’t flip shut on you if you let go to make a point. Finally, the index allows for quick reference between multiple books, especially useful for topical Bible studies, that require a lot of back and forth.
I would definitely recommend this Bible to anyone teaching from the NIV, 2011, edition.
