I cannot say enough good about this DAILY study Bible. EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT. Older and wiser now, I want to know whose works I am studying, their influence and personal relationship with the Sovereign Creator. Dr. Charles Stanley is one of five finger preachers I will lend my time in listening to. Soft spoken and humble, in his lectures and books the relationship he shares with God is deeply personal and righteous. He avoids his influence and teaches the Word of God.
The LP Daily Bible (NOT to be confused with his Life Principles Bible) touts six formats: Daily Bible readings with portions from the Old Testament, Psalms, Proverbs and the New Testament; Life Principles, thirty critical principles for successful Christian living; What the Bible Says About, articles on scriptural insight of concern to believers; Answers to Life's Questions, focusing on challenges in our Christian faith; Life Lessons, offer insights into Bible verses/passages emphasizing the practical and personal nature of God's Word. Life Lessons are indicated in the margin by pointers; asterisks denote a Bible promise.
What I like is that each daily reading may be completed within 30 minutes ... taking longer as schedules and study intent demmand. I started with August 4, when I received the Bible and already know this is one format I probably will study daily. Unlike other study bibles with leagues of cross references, Dr. Stanley has kept the Daily Bible simple, but believe me, poignant! Each lesson is dated (without year). The Bible verse and Bible promises are highlighted (dark gray). Side bars for each Life Lesson are small boxes that do not mince words. What the Bible Says About (title also highlighted) may be larger areas, but again, Dr. Stanley goes straight to the heart of the matter opening our mind to ponder with NO extraneous word clutter.
This daily study Bible may not be adequate for advanced biblical students, pastors, teachers, etc, but for the new Christian, teenager, casual reader of the Bible and for those of us returning to the flock, it is excellent. I should think Sunday school and Bible school teachers would also find its format easy to use when preparing their classes. Students certainly will find it easy to follow. And, as Dr. Stanley writes in his prologue: "... the best thing I could do [was develop] the Life Principles Daily Bible --- to help you read through the entire Bible in a year ..."
My only con: I wish he had included a dictionary of Hebrew dates to include: Jewish festivals, holy days and both the civil and religious calendar. This would have made this study Bible about Perfect. Maybe in a later edition?
HIGHLY RECOMMEND PRODUCT and Seller. Product as described. Delivery Prime timely.
We prefer straight KJV, but the NKJV offers an easier read. My husband reads aloud the day's outlined OT passage from the KJV while I follow along in this NKJV...then I read the little boxes and we move on to the Psalms passage, etc. Each year, we think we'll look for another one-year devotional Bible, but we end up starting this one all over again. I think we're in our 9th time! We allow ourselves 45 minutes each morning for this Bible reading program and prayer. Wouldn't want to start our day any other way! Try it, you'll like it!
I've previously used the MacArthur Daily Bible -- same format, same translation, same publisher, but with notes from John MacArthur, while this one (obviously) has the thoughts of Charles Stanley. MacArthur's version had clarification comments, as this one does (referred to as Life Lessons). It also has a daily thought. Stanley's does not follow this pattern, but has interspersed articles of various lengths (some about half a page, some a full page) with headings like "Life Principle", "Life Example", or "What the Bible Says About". Most of the time, these articles refer to the passage that is referred to, but always it covers the same topic.
If I'm getting a daily Bible for myself or a gift, this one is more encouraging and uplifting; I'd consider MacArthur's more educational. Either one is good.
