About this deal

First published in 1988, the Life Application Study Bible was developed to help people to live out the principles of scripture effectively.

out of 5 stars for NIV Life Application Study Bible, Third Edition, Large Print, Bonded Leather, Brown, Indexed. Behind every support specialist, Bible study editor, graphic designer, and accountant is a Sunday School teacher, kids volunteer, or small group leader. Anyway I started reading my new to me NLT which is the Large print slimline “crown of thorns” edition. I won't say any more about the extensive features of this Bible because I don't want to be a spoiler of a book which is one to be explored. But the notes repeatedly point us back to what we are doing rather than the finished work of Christ.This is the one Bible resource that incorporates today’s top scholarship in answering your real-life questions. It contains notes, maps, important information about each particular book (such as the purpose, author, approximate date written, setting, etc.

Nearly all of the pages contains a lot of notes for many of the verses that help you understand what you've read better. Compiled by a team of well-known Bible scholars and editors it quickly became the world's bestselling study Bible aimed at aiding application of Bible themes and doctrine to life today.

There is also a 2 page (in 3 columns) list of just the charts and the same size list of just the maps. A large timeline that mixes Biblical events with other world events helps give historical context especially to those less familiar with the Bible. The rich combination of study features – including verse-by-verse notes, introductions, personality profiles and a Bible dictionary – demystify the Scriptures, helping you apply the wisdom of God to everyday life. There’s only one thing I would suggest, that I was a little bummed about: you can’t highlight on the notes. The variety of sizes will make this Bible easier for some people to use or carry just like updating to the 3rd Edition made some of the study notes more up to date and accessible.

It's often easy to lose sight of the way in which God's story fits together when our primary way of looking at the Bible is a bit here and a bit there. This is a must for helping finding God, always knew Jesus as a young man but with this Bible with maps and much needed help finding related text to other parts of The Bible made the whole understanding come true.Some of the updates are just superficial, adding a second color and changing the layout of some of the information. Had they said that "it is God who works in you, both to will and work for his good pleasure" (Philippians 2:13), I would have agreed wholeheartedly. Many of the introductions also include a map with descriptions of key places and/or a timeline that lists the key events of the book and ties them in with other world events. I recently purchased another one of this same Bible for a close friend of mine who prefers the NLT version.
