I’d been looking around for study Bibles to supplement my scripture study when I was at Alexander Library on Wednesday and saw The NIV Archaeological Study Bible on the shelves. It looked really good–tons of color maps and articles–but I didn’t check it out at the time.
I kept thinking about it, though, and on Friday I was near Aliante and stopped at their library, hoping they had the same one there. As soon as I walked in, I faced their racks of used books for sale. The first one that jumped out at me was The NIV Archaeological Study Bible.
It was in perfect condition and was on sale for one dollar. The cover price was $49.99.
I took the hint and bought it.
