It's a blessing to read books like this.
This is basically an index to the principles in that book and is a valuable resource when searching for principles and topics of study for any book of the Bible.

I bought this book on my kindle fire and am very satisfied with it!

Format: Hardcover
The Life Essentials Study Bible has QR codes that allow iphones or ipads to VIEW VIDEO clips of Gene Getz teaching all 1,500 principles! Each biblical truth includes 1 to 5 paragraphs explaining the Scripture and is followed by a discussion question. The explanations are right with the biblical text, in the same size font so it's easy to read. This Bible makes it possible for the average person to facilitate Bible studies, individually or in a group, without having to be a Bible scholar! Just open the Bible and start reading. This Bible is like having 50 years of experience from Gene Getz right in front of you! Having this Bible will help people learn the overall biblical story correctly. Readers can be confident that they have a correct explanation, interpretation, and application of the Scriptures. No more being swayed by others misinterpreting Scriptures or even twisting them to fit their own needs, intentional or not. Check out the PRINCIPLE FINDER in the front of the Bible. All 1,500 principles are arranged by topic! Plus, the principles are listed in the front of each book of the Bible.

Biblical Principles are those teachings of the eternal Word of God that have universal application. Gene Getz has spent over 50 years teaching these principles directly out of Scripture and now presents over 1500 of these Life Principles for our benefit. His practical approach to the problems of life and how we can tackle them comes across on every page. It is patterned after the Jesus himself who made so many things easy for us to understand. The QR codes enable us to here Gene teach on the specific principle.

So when I picked up this Bible in a Christian bookstore around Thanksgiving 2011, I knew I needed to own it someday. My iPhone 4S has a QR reader app on it and I immediately began playing around with it as I perused this Bible. The video links all work flawlessly and Dr. Gene Getz is a great speaker. He's not overly excitable or even eloquent, but he certainly gets the point across and uses real life illustrations to do so. Each of the 1,500 points scattered throughout the Bible are derived straight from Scripture as you read, and each verse that the point touches on is already highlighted for you, for focused study. The Bible even comes with a free Life Essentials QR scanning app that replaces a default QR scanner. This app includes ALL the video links by Bible Book already, in case you want to simply go through them chronologically or however you wish to study. The app works perfectly and even follows your progress by checking off videos you've already watched, and you can even tag your favorites as such for quick reference to find later.

Overall, this Bible has been an immense and valuable resource for my personal study, and my church's pastor even wants to take a look at it. Technology, when used properly, is an amazing tool for the Christian, and this Bible is leaps and bounds ahead of any other study Bible to date (which is difficult to admit because I have a growing collection of inspiring study Bibles).

Format: Hardcover
The Life Essentials Study Bible is a study Bible that focuses on application of Biblical principles. Rather than being filled with commentary on Biblical passages, it contains a wealth of information from Dr. Gene Getz on life principles from God's Word and how those principles apply to our daily lives.

Cover and Binding
The edition I'm reviewing is hard cover. Just from my observation is looks like it's glued in sections. Time will tell, but it seems sturdy and well-made. It didn't have any problems staying open anywhere I put it.

Paper and Print
The paper is about a medium opacity. There is more show-though than I'd like. It gets distracting on pages with QR codes and lots of blue highlighting.

I'm just guessing at the font size, but to me it looks like around 9-point with maybe a 10.5 leading. Again, that's just a guess. I could be completely wrong. The font is modern and very readable.
The blue print is not my favorite to read. I think it's mainly that I'm not used to blue print. It does stand out.

The text is in double-column, paragraph format with poetry set in verse format. The layout is much different from a commentary Bible where the text appears at the top of the page and the commentary at the bottom. Instead, the layout follows the format of text then principle. This keeps the principles as close to the text as possible. It also makes it difficult to find the verses you're looking for, but if you use it for what it's meant to be used for then it works just fine.

Section Headings and Footnotes
The HCSB text includes section headings and footnotes. The section headings are in bold. They are large print and really stand out.

This is a wonderful bible to study with others. I don't have a smart phone but on the back of the bible is a url to view Dr. Getz's lectures. When studying with others our first action is to see if a principle is referenced in the verses we are studying then we pull it up on line to view the lecture. Dr. Getz speaks in plain english helping me to understand more and relating it to my life today.

The church I grew up in did not study the old testament since it was "done away with" now with Dr. Getz's commentary I can see the tie between the law and prophesy of the old testament and the fulfillment of it in the new testament.

I have bought the hard back, the leather bound and now own the Kindle version. Thank you Amazon for providing all three formats.
