Top Customer Reviews
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.
The one thing I wish were different is the craftsmanship. You drop this bible once and the back breaks away from the cover. My husband never drops his, so it's still in perfect condition. Mine is a different story. I would recommend putting it in a protective cover.
I tell everyone about this bible! Everybody I know who has it claims it as their favorite. I've literally never heard anyone say otherwise. Do yourself a favor and get it!
