My children & I LOVE this Bible. Its very interesting to be reading and to be able to see the different things happening in the world at the same time. Its also interesting to learn what some of the things were in the Bible, how different they were then what we think they are. Very educational and fun to learn.
I bought the 2005 ed. shortly after it came out in 2005...from CBD. But it is not full of color photos as this 2010 says it is. It does have some full color photos, most are just 4 colors. Mine DOES have a disc in the back to insert into my computer. My question is : Has the 2010 ed. been updated? Mine is NIV version. But I see no where in these reviews or in the explanation by the publishers NOR in the blurbs shown or back cover, that the 2010 has been updated or revised from the 2005. Is it the same, other than the version being different? I know there have been additional finds/discoveries since then...and I am wondering if that was included in the 2010 ed. ( only 5 yrs apart, so maybe not.) Overall a wonderful addition to my Biblical library.
I love having this Bible! The background information found in it is interesting and helpful to understand the Biblical times. It has quotes from other sources that relate to some of the passages and maps to use to see where the different cities and towns were. There is even a reference in the back of the Bible for a quick word-find! I love it!!
