Sell me on your Bible

I still haven't found my Bible. While the computer thing works, it's not the best--can't bring it to bed with me :) So I'm ISO a new one. The one I had was a NIV Study Bible by Zondervan--I liked the notes, and it had cross references in the margins, as well as good study aids (concordance, dictionary, maps, etc). Before that I had a Life Application NIV. A little more application based in the notes, it was also good but in a different way.

So sell me on your Bible--what kind do you have? What do you like about it? What would you change? I'm probably sticking with NIV, so I'm more looking for the bells and whistles. I do like to do word studies, but usually end up at www.blueletterbible.org to go back to the Greek and Hebrew...

TIA!

I started using this NIV Bible I got for graduation from my step-grandfather. It has little notes about archeology. If you like that stuff, you would like it. Though, I think you might be looking more for applications. Anyway, let me know if you want to look at it some Sunday.

Oh, for the allyl thing... I found a pretty similar problem in a book I have. So, I used that to get to what I think was the answer. Thanks for the input though! :)

I use an NIV study Bible from Concordia Publishers. While they are primarily a conservative Lutheran outfit, I don't find their notes slanted. It's a bit heavy so I have a smaller NIV to take out an about, but it's thorough with great notes and a concordance which I'm always using.
