As I am thinking to buy one for my 14 yr old son now?
I find it interesting that no-one has responded -
I have read through the "Quest" Study Bible (NIV, correct?). What I have observed - most of the notes/commentary are pretty good. I have a bigger issue with the use of the NIV - especially the latest version which has replaced the older version.
A 14 year old with average reading skills doesn't really need stuff spoon-fed to him (or her). There are plenty of good study Bibles out there. As for NIV study Bibles - you could do a lot worse than the Quest.
If you are NOT hung up on the NIV, then I might propose a couple of far better study Bibles:
The Nelson NKJV Study Bible - excellent and very scholarly commentary. Still among the best of contemporary Study Bibles (and I know some of the commentators - one was a professor of mine in Seminary!).
The HCSB Study Bible - the first contemporary Study Bible to really (in my view) compete with the NKJV Study Bible above.
But - if you are stuck on the NIV - then the Quest isn't bad...
I still have my New scofield and Ryrie from college days, its just the version he likes!
