NIV, The Woman's Study Bible, Imitation Leather

On 3/26 Dave Marrandette wrote: Another month; another book review; another Study Bible. That should come as no surprise. Virtually all Bible publishers are cranking out Study Bibles at a speed beyond metaphorical description, all bent to a certain theme, audience or demographic.
