New to the Bookshelf: NIV Archaeological Study Bible

Non-Fiction: Bible. Hardback from Zondervan. Published in 2005. 2306 pages (plus maps). Purchased at Family Christian Stores.

This book caught my eye a while back and today I added it to our library, thanks to a trip to Family Christian Stores on 28th Street. It looks like it is going to be an excellent reference. The quality of the binding looks a bit suspect to me, but hopefully I will be proven wrong. It’s really quite a beautiful book.
