It's the only Bible available based entirely on the inductive study approach- giving you the tools for observing what Scripture says, interpreting what it means, and applying what you learn into your life.

About the Binding & Cover

This edition is made from high quality Genuine leather, with a Smythe sewn binding. The cover has a rich leathery feel, rich color and well defined grain. Bibles covered in Genuine leather are very durability and will last for many years. Genuine leather is made from the remaining layers after the top layer has been removed, at that point it has a suede surface which is then refinished to add grain and texture. Genuine leather can be refinished in many textures from fine grain to crocodile skin. This edition lays flat while you are reading because of its high quality Smythe sewn binding. Smythe sewn binding is considered the highest quality binding, the pages are sewn and glued to the spine of the Bible. The benefits are a long lasting Bible that can be read and reread for years without falling apart. Books with Smythe sewn binding will stand up to more abuse than regular glued binding, and can be read on a flat surface. For these reasons many textbooks, picture books and Bibles that are designed to stand the tests of time use Smythe sewn binding. Smythe sewn book printing and binding gets its name from its inventor, an Irish-American named David McConnell Smythe (1833-1807). A pioneer of modern day bookbinding, Smythe took a bold leap forward over the centuries old methods of binding by producing the first technology and methods for sewing book pages to the spine to create a book of superior quality and appearance. Smythe-sewn Bibles are durable, but they may be heavier and less flexible than glued Bibles. That said if you want the best, then you want Smythe sewn binding. Size: 9.5 X 6.5 X 2.25 (inches)

What’s inside?
The text of this edition is 9.5 pt, which is clear and easy to read. The layout of this Bible is single column format, black letter edition, with blank paragraph/subject headings so that you can write your own subject headings. This new edition contains many special and revised features: a 32-page guide to carrying out the steps of observation, interpretation, and application, full-color pages with step-by-step instructions and overviews for every book of the Bible, individualized instructions and overviews every book of the Bible, Wide margins for note taking, 24 pages of full-color charts historical time-lines and maps, dozens of unique study helps including a comprehensive history of Israel, cross-references, and concordance. This Bible is printed on high quality paper, because of the thinness of the paper I recommend using Sakura Pigma Micron Pens and Crayola Color Pencils for highlighting. The margins are 1 1/4"" along the outside of the pages. This edition has a burgundy ribbon marker, the pages are edged with gold which looks elegant with the burgundy cover.

About this Translation
The translation used in this edition is the Updated New American Standard Version
The New American Standard Bible (NASB) is a revision of the American Standard Version of 1901. The American Standard Version was a reversion of the King James Version. Many view the New American Standard Bible as one of the most literal translations of the 20th-century. Since its completion in 1971, the New American Standard Bible has been widely embraced by many as “the most literally accurate English translation” from the original languages. In 1995, the Lockman Foundation reissued the NASB text as the NASB Updated Edition (or more often known, the Updated NASB or NASB95). Since then, it has become known simply as the "NASB" and has supplanted the 1971 text in most current printings (although the Thompson Chain Reference Bible, the Open Bible, and the Key Word Study Bible still use the 1977 text for their NASB editions).

The NISB is one of the most interactive study Bibles I have ever seen. This Bible teaches you how to observe, interpret, and apply scripture through careful observation. This is a very unique and useful study Bible. The NISB is available in Hardcover, Bonded Leather and Genuine Leather editions.
