The truths of Scripture can transform your life.

A flinty blade poised over a young man’s heart—a heavenly command preventing the knife’s deadly descent—the drama of Abraham and Isaac is one of the Bible’s best beloved-stories. But what is its relevance for you? How do you apply this ancient account to your life today? What do you have in common with men and women who lived thousands of years ago in agrarian cultures that were vastly different than today’s world of computers and freeways and towering city skylines? When you read about the building of the temple in Israel or what Jesus had to say to the Pharisees about the laws of Israel, what timeless principles can you apply to your life?

Turn to the Life Application Study Bible. Its wealth of study aids helps you translate scriptural truths into practical action. You’ll find hundreds of application notes filled with insights for godly living. Character sketches help you learn from the strengths and accomplishments, weaknesses and mistakes of key Bible characters from Aaron to Zerubbabel. A dictionary-concordance enables you to research important words and concepts. Thorough book introductions and timelines offer an overview of key concepts and help you put the biblical narrative into perspective.

NASB translation description: In the mid-20th century, The Lockman Foundation saw the need for a new translation based upon the values that inspired the revered American Standard Version (ASV). Employing the same exacting word-for-word approach as the ASV, a world-class team of conservative translators and scholars drew on the strengths of its predecessor and on new Hebrew and Greek textual sources to produce an all-new translation. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) was released in its entirety in 1971, and was updated in 1995 to render it more understandable to modern-English readers. It is recognized as today's most accurate word-for-word translation.

Thousands of in-text application notes will enrich your understanding of the biblical text and show how it relates to what God is doing in your life now. Located near the relevant verse, application notes make understanding the Bible enjoyable and rewarding. Character sketches introduce you to biblical people like Abraham, showing how the choices he made in his epic journey of faith offer insights for your personal journey of faith. The life experiences of people from the Old and New Testament offer eternal perspective on the daily choices we all must make. You’ll also learn about cultural backgrounds, helping you put key events of the Bible into perspective through charts, diagrams, and overviews. Timeless truths from Scripture are highlighted, bridging the gap between ancient and modern times and showing you how the Bible is relevant to what you experience today.

The Life Application Study Bible introduces you to all this and more, offering penetrating insight that will help you live with greater wisdom and faith. The Bible is a life-changing book, and the Life Application Study Bible gives you the tools you need to understand and apply its message.

I have always considered the Life Application Study Bible to be the best study bible ever made. Unlike most other study bible I own which offer a more doctrinal and expositional approach, this bible approaches God's Word in a very practical and timely method thereby making an impact in our day to day living. The recent addition of the NASB version further made the best even better for it is an accepted fact that NASB is the most literal translation of the bible in English today. The genuine leather is of a high quality and the printing excellent, which is expected from Zondervan. If you need a study bible which will make you connect to God's Word in your daily life, this is it!

If you're really serious about owning and studying from a true translation of the original Greek and Hebrew language, the Life Application NASB is for you! Because it is an Life Application version, its 10,000 study notes, 100+ profiles, maps, charts and diagrams, concordance and much more makes it even better.
The only downside to the NASB is with its readability because it is the most literal word-for-word translation. However, the new updated NASB has made it easier to read without sacrificing accuracy as does the other translations such as the NIV, NKJV, or the NLT.
As a bible instructor I use this version exclusively, as well in all my writings and publications. Again, if you're a serious student of the Bible, the NASB Life Application Bible is the best. If you're just a causal reader you might want to consider another translation because the NASB is written at the college level, whereas the NIV and the NLT is written for 8th and 6th grade levels respectively.

If you can only afford one Bible, this is the one. It's like having a commentary built into your Bible and the maps and amenities are fabulous. Zondervan BTW is an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of customer service. I had a small defect in my Bible and with one e-mail, Zondervan replaced the Bible with no questions asked.....and they didn't even request that I return the defective Bible. WOW!

Format: Bonded Leather Verified Purchase
I bought this Bible to replace a bible that was bound with the "Bonded Leather" method. Other Bibles on Amazon.com listed "Bonded Leather" as the method, and this one was listed as "Leather Bound" in contrast.

So I thought I was getting a Genuine Leather Bound Bible. I was wrong. I returned this Bible to Amazon and ordered one that was clearly described as Genuine Leather Bound.

Bonded Leather is less durable than Genuine Leather. My current Bible is losing flakes of the "bonded leather at the edges and it is spreading across the covers.

I have no comments on the actual contents of this Bible as I never removed the shrink wrap once I saw that the cover said "Bonded Leather".

It is probably a great Bible, but Amazon is doing a disservice with its description of the "bound" style.

There are three big decisions involved in getting a Bible, not counting expense.

The first is the translation. If you want something to give you an easy, casual reading, and you don't care about accuracy, then the NASB is not for you. If you want something that is fairly accurate, but don't really care if it is precise or not, then the NASB may or may not be the best choice for you.

If, however, you believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and you want it translated into readable modern English as precisely as possible, because you want to apply the Word of God to your own life, then there is NO other translation that will do. From my perspective in comparing both the Hebrew and the Greek, there is no other translation that even comes close to the NASB for accuracy, with the possible exception of the NKJV, which to me ranks a fairly distant second.

The NASB is written in clear, readable 12th-grade-level English. That makes it a bit difficult to read for some. If you are willing to put forth the effort to let your life be stretched by the Word, however, is it not also worth the effort to let your English be stretched by the most accurate translation?

One of the commentators on here mentioned that he preferred the NRSV over the NASB for accuracy. I'm afraid that is simply not correct. The NRSV is loaded with inaccuracies in translation, which appear to me to have been deliberately inserted to skew the translation in favor of a particular theological viewpoint, making it one of the LEAST accurate translations available.

The second big decision is what kind of study helps to get. I find the Life Application editions well organized, easy to use, and Biblically sound, but to each their own.

This bible is a literal fresh perspective of the word of GOD. I think there are areas of the scripture that leave you confused if you are a NIV, KJ,...reader. The largest reason for this was a lack of literal translation prior to the NASB. When in doubt the dictionary in the back will help solve that problem prior to reading the scripture notes at the bottom of each page.
The scripture notes really allow one to understand how the scripture relates to and about life. The features in this bible are top notch. This bible can give you light and understanding you have never known.
