It means pastors no longer have to preach from a pew Bible to be on the same page as their congregation. To aid pastors in quickly and easily locating passages as you they, this Bible is set in a verse-by-verse format, rather than a paragraph format. This is the only NIV Bible in which each verse starts a new paragraph.”                 [Read the Bible Gateway Blog post, New Minister’s Bible Includes Clergy Resources for Life Events] The NIV Preacher’s Bible combines elements that are helpful for preaching and teaching: line-matching to minimize see-through; ample margin space; a bold, clear typeface; smooth, opaque paper; and a versified layout to easily find verses on the page.
