Book Review: Integrated Study Bible

I received a copy of this new NIV Integrated Study Bible in exchange for an honest review via BookLook Bloggers.  

I have used a Study Bible for years.  I have found that the author notes in a study bible are very helpful in further comprehending scripture.  What I loved about this specific Bible is that in combines a Chronological Bible with some study Bible aspects.  For example: when reading in 1 Samuel about David the Psalm David wrote about that time is listed next to the scripture.  There are also several sections that are repeats in the Bible, just different first person accounts (such as in the gospels).  The Integrated Bible has these sections parallel with each other so you can easily see both versions.  

There is a very detailed explanation in the front of this Bible on how the order was decided.  I found it helpful in understanding a bit of church history as well.
