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.

Format: Leather Bound
I purchased this study Bible about a year ago. This was my first copy of the NASB translation. To be honest I did not care for it at first. It does not come in red-letter (not that that's all I read but I happen to like a little color) and I was not certain that the NASB translation went well with the Life Application notes. The single column text format was also a surprise as I had never seen it before.
After a year of on and off use I am happy to give this study Bible my endorsement. The NASB is one of the most accurate translations and much easier to read since the 1995 Update (which this Bible uses). The application notes do an excellent job of helping you, well, apply scripture to your life. There is not as much historical data as in some study Bibles but the multitude of charts and maps more than make up for it.
My only complaint so far has been with the quality of the binding. Recently, I noticed that my one-year-old Bible had very loose binding and was beginning to lose some of the presentation pages. This was surprising in a Bible that had been well taken care of and was only a year old (I'm told that bonded leather bindings should be good for ten). Fortunately, Zondervan honored their lifetime guarantee on the binding and replaced it with no questions asked.
If you're a serious Bible student, or want to be, then this is a good Bible to have.

I love my Life Application Study Bible, NASB. I had gone through another Bible when I learned that NASB is the best modern translation. I was reluctant to let the other go because it was highlighted and noted from beginning to ending. I could find things in the old Bible. Nevertheless, I began once again on page one.

It did not take long to discover that, yes, this is the Bible to read. What makes it so enjoyable includes several reasons. First of all, I love the translation. It maintains that sacred tone while in modern speech. Those who believe the King James translation is the only authentic version don't realize that it is a translation into the language of the King James court in England (during Shakespeare's time). A translation is never going to be an exact one because of language and cultural differences, but the NASB is certainly noteworthy.

Another winning factor is the abundance of study guides for each book: time lines, vital statistics including summary and application for each book, maps, outline of the book, charts and diagrams, and megathemes. I looked forward to these with each book. I read them both before and after each chapter and made simple notes in the margins.

Another winning aspect of this version is the Harmony of Old Testament scripture with New Testament passages. Jesus is first referenced in Genesis 1:26--"Let Us make man in Our image..." The footnote provides the Harmony. From Colossians 1:16 "we know that Christ, God's Son, was at work in the creation" (6). This continues throughout the Bible.

In fact the footnotes are where important life applications are found. Here is one example: Gen. 1:27: "God made both man and woman in His image...

I already own a number of other Bibles in book form including an NIV study Bible and software with almost every English Bible translation available. This is my favorite Bible so far. The life application study notes are very good, maps, concordance, character studies etc are all very good. The text is big enough, the book itself is a little bulky but not too heavy, as can be expected for a complete Bible with all the study notes and other sections. I prefer hard cover Bibles as I think they are more durable, especially for the heavy use I make of them. Quality of the book is good, no issues with the binding, and I expect to be using this for many years, both in church as well as every day in personal Bible study.

Update about a year later:
Some time ago, I noticed somebody else had written a review and commented on the quality of the binding, complaining that it was not very good for heavy use. Having used the Bible VERY heavily over the last 12 months, I wanted to come back and disagree. Each year I read right through a Bible. My choice of translation for 2005 was this one. I read and cross referenced many chapters, every day. In addition, I carried the Bible to work and back home again. On most days, I used it more to choose some verses to use to send on to some friends via email, and looked through the life app study notes to add some comments for their benefit. At least once every week, ad often twice, it was subjected to some rather heavy handed treatment and inspection as I took it in and out of a prison in ministry. The binding held up well. Of course, it is showing signs of wear, but my use was probably substantially higher than most other people would have in a few years.

As the title says this Bible is not to bad. It has pluses- like the great introductions at the beginning of each book along with nice maps and character studys. On the negative side if you're looking for a study Bible with a strong dose of theology in the notes, look elsewhere. I use this Bible when I teach teens in my Sunday school class because the notes are geared towards applying Biblical principles to your life. In that area it's a great Bible, for serious study try the NASB study Bible by Zondervan.
