I love my large print tniv, but wanted the niv2011 also for some comparing. I like to get a wide variety of translations and also of study and devotional Bibles. I like being able to quickly find out what a specific teacher or even denom teaches about a passage. Doesn't mean I have to agree with them, just know what they teach. I decided for the niv2011 to get Jimmy Carter's Life Lessons Bible. I'm far more politically conservative than I believe him to be, but it may turn out collectable and had the version I wanted. I haven't had it too long, but I'm finding many of the articles and sidebars in it to be pretty close to the "old" SBC teachings......neither fundamentalist nor liberal. I'm sure I won't agree with his every jot and tittle of commentary, but I'm pleasantly surprised and find myself turning to it fairly often.
