The Life Application Study Bible is one of the very best study bibles on the market today with over 10,000 study notes, dozens of character profiles, and much more. I purchased the large print edition of the NIV and found that its 11 point type to be easy to read.

This is a large bible with over 3,000 pages and weighs 4.5 pounds. The bible is very well made (leather bound edition) with excellent paper quality and will last me for many, many years. I use this bible as well as the NKJV bible as my two primary study bibles for bible class preparation.

So, if you're looking for an excellent large print study bible which is accurate, readable, and with great study notes you can't go wrong with the NIV Life Application Study Bible - Large Print Edition.

As a new Christian, I was having difficulty understanding the King James Version of the Bible. The Life Application Bible gives me a greater understanding of how we should live our lives in todays world as a Christian. It also gives complete explanations of what the scriptures meant at the time that it was written. This Bible is a pleasure to read.

I have always used the King James Version of the Bible and have always had difficulty in understanding it. It never occured to me that there may be another bible out there that I could understand without having to re-read everything over and over.
I found the NIV Life Application Study Bible and while in the Bible bookstore, I held it next to the King James Version to compare. I was astonished at the difference, yet they were the same in meaning. I Quickly paid the lady at the register and went home to check out this Bible.
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, I REALLY ENJOY READING THE BIBLE!
This version is so easy to understand, I have bought my father one, reccommended it to everyone I have the chance and I am about to buy one for my son and a good friend of mine. Don't do like I did and avoid reading your bible for years because it was too difficult or challenging. Do youself a favor and check this Bible out. You will be glad you did. You wont want to stop reading it.
I also recommend adding the Zondervan Exhaustive Concordance and the Zondervan Naves topical Bible to your study collection if you are serious about studying the bible to the fullest.

I had originally ordered a different bible. This one was sent by "mistake". I think God knew I needed this one. I looked it over and quickly decided that rather than return it I would gladly pay for it. I contacted Amazon and they were very nice about straightening out the billing. I love this bible and recommend it it highly for new believers. Especially if you're like me and have difficulty with the KJV. I also appreciate the notes on alternate text references and alternate wording.

I can read for a couple of hrs. witout even realizing it. The way the information is presented is really outstanding. I feel I am understanding His Word on a much deeper level. There are sooo many sources of information offered. Maps, concordance/dictionary, index, commentary, even personal profiles---all of it is extraordinary and very easy to absorb. What a great study guide for the 'new born' christian and the well studied.

I struggled for many years to find the relevence in the Old Testament to my life. I also had problems with the New Testament, as well, especially the Pauline letters that seem to place women in a lowered social status.
This Bible has been of great help to me in finding the meaning in both the Old and New Testaments, with its chapter introductions, outlines, and explanations of "megathemes" in each chapter, so that I know what to look for as I read. I also appreciate the daily reading plan, as I am now reading more of the Bible than I would have otherwise.
I have a few concerns with this edition of the Bible, though. First, the authorship of the first several books of the Old Testament is attributed to Moses, which makes me wince slightly, as so much Christian scholarship agrees that there were likely several authors at work. Please understand that this theory of multiple authorship does not diminish the sacredness of the Bible to me - the very ideas contained in the Bible are Divine, no matter who the author/s was/were. But, this is not a scholarly Bible, and tradition dictates that Moses wrote the books, so there we are.
Second, the commentary seems to slant a bit toward the evangelical Protestant point of view, which I am not, and I guess that's why I noticed it.
Third, I feel that the lack of the apocryphal books of the Old Testament is a major omission. I understand that the Apocrypha are not usually included in most bibles, but a biblical edition of this quality would have been greatly enhanced by their inclusion. Tobit is wonderful book, and I miss not having the commentary. I hope that future editions will include these Biblical treasures.
That said, I am extremely pleased with this edition of the Bible.

I have several Bibles, all with different helps. This is my favorite, with commentaries that apply to life today. The Life Application Bible is the most popular at the Bible Study Group I attend, because it often has the answers to the questions we ask. It is wonderful for newer Christians, but is just as important for those farther along in their Faith Walk. I highly recommend this Bible for anyone, and have purchased one for myself, as well as many as gifts. READ IT!
