The NIV Study Bible, 1974 addition

The NET with study notes, translation and textual critical notes

In 1987 I was struggling with my job. I was not happy working at the West Valley Demonstration Project in Springville, NY. Westinghouse management was encouraging me to seek a transfer to a different division. I just did not know what to do.

On an interview trip in April, 1988, just sure where to turn, I turned to the Gideon Bible I found in my hotel room and started reading. I don’t remember where I began, but it doesn’t really matter. It awakened a hunger to read more when I returned home.

We had this NIV Study Bible and I started to read it. I planned to read a little each day so that I would finish in a year. For the past 30+ years, I’ve done just that. Each year I read through it, study it, and reflect upon His Words therein.

the Bible is His Story and it is very much History. The deep one studies it, the more in awe one becomes of Him and His creation.
