Recently Zondervan released the NIV, Starting Place Study Bible. As the name suggests, it’s supposed to be a study Bible to a young (in faith) believer who’s just now starting to really dig into and understand the Word of God. The question should be asked, though, is this a good start for someone?
Typically in these reviews, I talk about the cover art, story art, and the story itself. This landmark issue, however, poses some problems with this format. Much like the first issues of Detective Comics, this Giant-Size issue is composed of several stories that are not connected.

But is it worth watching? Does it live up to my expectations?
