From the Back Cover
You're holding the Holy Bible, New Living Translation. An authoritative Bible translation, rendered faithfully into today's English from the ancient texts by 90 leading Bible scholars. The NLT's scholarship and clarity breathe life into even the most difficult-to-understand Bible passages--but even more powerful are stories of how people's lives are changing as the words speak directly to their hearts. That's why we call it ''The Truth Made Clear.''

So, after ranting to somebody about it, they suggested I get an application bible, which I had never heard before. Just two days into it, it's successfully KEEPING me in the bible. What I enjoy is that there's additional commentary either above or usually at the bottom of the page that explains almost EVERY verse in detail. In fact, this book is so detailed that at first, I was worried about how much of a ramble it was, but it's worth reading to help you be more intimate with God's word, and even gain a better perspective then to rely on how ignorant I was. There's so much thorough material to read that it's taking me a very long time to finish Genesis.
1) I appreciate the commentary and the additional bonus histories that may relate to the passages.
2) I appreciate the timelines (years), and even the maps given to demonstrate where an event happened.
3) It tells you who wrote each book.
4) Right at the end of each chapter, It gives guidelines/summary of who a character was; their weakness, who they are related to, and how many times they were mentioned in the bible.
5) There is red text to pinpoint Christ's dialogue. When comparing my old NIV bible to this, it didn't have that, but does have the same material; so nothing (to my knowledge so far) has been left out.
One thing I have to caution people on is be light in marking or highlighting on the pages, becuase they do bleed through the VERY paper-thin pages. So, maybe putting sticky tabs at the edge of the page may work better.
I will update as I go.
