Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Pentecostal missionary leaves spiritual legacy to the nations Pentecostal missionary Donald Stamps went to be with his Lord one month after completing the study notes to the Full Life Study Bible. But the Spirit's work through him lives on in the Bible with features that have been translated into fifteen languages. The story of this internationally successful Bible begins in Brazil, where Stamps saw that needy pastors needed biblical training, but they could not afford it. It was then, says is wife Linda, that the Holy Spirit began to lay the need of a Pentecostal study Bible for Brazil on Don's heart. Stamps worked on the study notes in 1982 at his home in Brazil. Despite lack of space and leaky ceilings, he worked on it there until 1988, when he came to America to spend full-time on the project. Even stomach cancer didn't stop Stamps. Having finished the New Testament notes and half the Old Testament notes by the time he was diagnosed, he finished his work amid chemotherapy, surgery, and weakness. The Full Life Study Bible includes a complete cross-reference system, maps and charts near relevant texts, book introductions, a detailed subject index, a concordance and 16 full-color maps.

It also has features specially designed for Pentecostal and Charismatic Christians: ?

Themefinders: 12 symbols located in the margin indicating verses that address specific themes such as Baptized in/Filled with the Holy Spirit, Gifts of the Spirit, and Healing. ?

Study Notes: Written in the Pentecostal tradition by Stamps, who was a prominent Assemblies of God missionary. ?

Articles: 77 articles that address a wide variety of topics of doctrinal and practical importance. ?

Charts: 5 charts uniquely designed for this Bible such as Old Testament Prophecies Fulfilled in Christ, and The Kingdom of God Versus the Kingdom of Satan .

The Full Life Study Bible was reviewed by pastors and scholars committed to creating a standard by which Pentecostal and Charismatic Christians of many nations could study, preach, and teach.

Format: Paperback
The Full Life Study Bible is an excellent publication. If you are looking for an NIV Bible with the larger 35000 Concordance ( sadly lacking from most Concordance editions these days in favour of the reduced 13000 listing) and copious Study Notes and Articles from a more charismatic perspective - then this Bible could be the one for you. The leather Bibles are beautifully bound and well presented. The Study Notes are situated at the bottom of the pages whilst Articles on various aspects of 'Spirit Filled' Living are placed throughout the book, rather than together in one place ( which may not suit everyone, although they are clearly indexed). The quality of the notes, written by Donald C Stamps, are excellent. The stance taken is both evangelical and charismatic - although I would not agree with all his interpretations. For example he argues that a born again Christian cannot have a demon. There is also a strong push on holiness ( good) but frequent warnings that a lack of full commitment to Christ could lead to a loss of salvation ( sure?). There is a hint, in my view, that a few comments are a little harsh. That said, a postive view is taken on the Gifts of the Spirit for all believers, standards of morality and Divine Healing, and many other areas. Other features you may favour include words of Christ in red, cross references in a centre column and Bible book summaries at the beginning of each book.

This Study Bible has a good balance of practical, devotional, and theological study notes and articles. It helps the reader understand how the truths of the Bible are still relevent and available for us today, especially for those who desire to see the Holy Spirit work in the Church today as He did in the New Testament. A must for every Spirit-filled believer or anyone who wants more of God in his/her life. I use it all the time in my personal life and in pastoral ministry.

Format: Hardcover
The NIV Full-Life Study Bible is based on the NIV,which,for better or worse, seems very popular today. It is a balanced translation, in between a formal equivalence(word-for-word)and dynamic equivalence(basically thought-for-thought). Words have been added to, or deleted from, the Greek text of the New Testament. Ergo, one is reading the words of men mixed in with the Words of God. The annotations in this Bible are from a traditional Pentecostal perspective; with 4 total pages taken up with the subject of wine, expressing a temperance viewpoint rather than the actual 1st century meaning of wine. This is a good Study Bible, with nice, dark print. However, keep in mind that the editor was a member of the Assemblies of God, and the annotations reflect their belief system.

Format: Hardcover
The NIV Full Life Study Bible is an excellent choice for christians. Although I do not agree with all of the notes most of them are excellent and practical. This Bible is uncompromising in its adherence to historic christianity. The text and notes are clear and bold unlike its successor (Life In The Spirit Study Bible). Go for the original it's easier on the eyes! This Bible contains thorough book introductions; annotations; indexes; maps and a concordance. It has a pentecostal emphasis but that won't hurt non-pentecostals (like myself) a bit. Buy it for Full Life!!

Format: Hardcover
The study notes present a very clear biblical moral standard on issues that have been clouded by modern interpretation. I give the Bible to every New Member that joins our church because I feel it passes on everything they need to live a Full Christian life.

I had heard about this study bible for years and had simply passed on the opportunity to get one. I'm glad I finally purchased my own. The helps are marvelous and the scholarship is impeccable. If you're not pentecostal and want to see why pentecostals believe in the Holy Spirit and the manifestations of the gifts, this is definitely for you.
