The "Life Application Bible" is the most refreshing Bible to be offered by publisher's in years! No matter which translation version is selected, the "Life Application Bible" enhances and interprets many difficult passages, while offering several possibilities for controversial passages. The maps are well defined and inset at the point in the biblical text where they are most beneficial. Additionally, The "Life Application Bible" has many wonderful character profiles of key people throughout. Together with vital statistics, blueprints, and megathemes at the beginning of each book, this version tops the list of all others currently available today.
The only thing missing is the old-fashioned concordance that many users, like myself, have grown used to. If you are going to shop for a new Bible, you owe yourself a review of this publishing . . . "work of art!"

I am 33 years old and was always turned off by the Bible because of the arcane language. I had not picked up a Bible until recently when I saw this one at a local Christian bookstore for $49.95. This translation is exactly what I needed and what I believe newcomers to the Bible should read. Not only is the writing simplistic but almost every passage is explained in detail at the bottom of each page. I remember being young and trying to read the King James Version which was a nightmare for a young kid. I wish everyone knew this translation is available. The publisher has outdone itself by including so many extras and really simplifying an extraordinarily complicated book. Thank-you for allowing me to be able read and comprehend this important work.

I've searched through countless bibles, looking for a bible that contains thourough reference and comentary. This bible truly is a "Life APPLICATION Bible". It contains all the information that you could want as you need it. The charts, maps, and biographies are included as you read and need them. If the verses you are reading contain important geographical info, the map is right there - no more having to look for the info somewhere else in the book! The New King James Version is easy to understand and flows well in reading without losing the "poetic rhythm" of the King James Version. My husband is a pastor and is as equally impressed with it as well. This bible would make an excellent gift for anyone you love

I read it everyday. It is where I get all my answers to life. Reading it is a daily blessing. I may have read a certain passage 5 times before, but it does not register or it's wisdom does not present itself until something happens in my life and I am reading along and I come across the answer right under my nose. I don't know how I missed it before, but I did, even though it has been there all along. Like IT is waiting for ME. It is at moments like this that I am struck with AWE and I realize something really BIG is going on here. I have read 3 other versions but this one is the best by far.

We keep several Bible translations in our house, and this is my regular go-to Bible for reading and study. It's held up well over years of daily use.

The study notes are one of my favorite aspects of this Bible and I use them regularly when developing outlines for our weekly family study. I particularly appreciate how major doctrinal scriptures are addressed; for example, Luke 22:17-20 describes Jesus' actions after the Passover and institution of the new Communion.

From the notes:
"Christians differ in their interpretation of the meaning of the commemoration of the Lord's Supper. There are three main views: (1) The bread and wine actually become Christ's body and blood; (2) the bread and wine remain unchanged, yet Christ is spiritually present by faith in and through them; (3) the bread and wine, which remain unchanged, are lasting memorials of Christ's sacrifice. No matter which view they favor, all Christians agree that the Lord's Supper commemorates Christ's death on the cross for our sins and points to the coming of his Kingdom glory. When we partake of it, we show our deep gratitude for Christ's work on our behalf, and our faith is strengthened."

What a balanced, thorough yet succinct rendering.

This is an identical replacement of bible that I've had for over 20 years and still use extensively. The cover of mine had come off and the pages were beginning to fall out so I needed a new one. I prefer the paraphrase to the new translation but they are no longer printed so I had to find a good condition used one. This met my needs. It has some markings but I'll be adding plenty more so that's not a problem. I wish Tyndale House would republish the old paraphrase; I think they would find they still have a market for it.

We are using this edition for our weekly Bible Study. The layout of this version has been extremely helpful in aiding the reader to easily understand the Scriptures. It is written in todays language. Easy to read and grasp Biblical principles. If you really want to know God spend some time in the word. History will come alive for you. The time line assists the reader in following the order events occured. This is the best Bible I own. WWJD He'd buy the book. :-) <><
