Occasional colored photos. Pleasant layout with clear, green headlines. The usual study notes. Introductions that include author, historical and theological notes. And some index articles that go over basic doctrines and timelines - meant more for reference or for beginners than for new discoveries. The NIV Zondervan Study Bible is your typical Bible. It's heavy in size, so not ideal for on-the-go, but perfect for in-depth study. I do not recommend it, however, if you already have a good study Bible.
*Disclaimer: I received this Bible in exchange for my honest review.
