First off, the translation. I have two favorite Bible versions. One is the New Living, and the other is the New King James, which is the version used here. Easy to read, and without out the out of date words used in the King James.
This Bible is full of "Life Lessons". They are in the margins of the pages. Each one has a situation, observation, inpsiration, application, and ending with exploration - more verses about the topic.
Also scattered throughout are Christ Through The Bible "sidebars". Boxes with portions from Max's books having to do with the topic in the Scripture above, and also with Christ.
Obviously, I have not read this whole Bible or all of the notes, but what I have read, I have liked. I really like the Life Lessons and feel they can be helpful as a person reads through the Bible, though I would classify it as more of a Devotional Bible than a study Bible. And added to it is the great New King James version of the Bible. A great combination.
Having said this, the book is worth having if you do not have the earlier text or want an easier to read compilation of the same material. I have enjoyed reading the devotionals that have made Max Lucado famous. I trust the same will be true of others.
This truly lived up to being a study bible; The paper were not onion thin, nor where they "notebook" quality, but a lightweight quality that just add to the overall look and texture and feel of the study bible.
With beautiful images, font spacing that is easy for any eyes (I estimated it to be about a 11 point) and well laid out, you will definitely enjoy using the,"Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible, NKJV" bible for your everyday study bible use.
The size was the only drawback for me, but I'm also use to a thin-line bible that I could easily carry in a purse and its not to say that you couldn't bring this bible to church for use. It has a nice hardback cover to it and works well for bible study groups, classes and for use during sermons as well as personal use, and my only complaint is because I like things I can just drop in my purse, it was really more of an aesthetic drawback for me.
However, this is something that I do plan on using for my personal reflection time and if you are looking for a bible to use or even to give as a gift, I do recommend that you look into the, "Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible, NKJV". This is perfect for the new Christian in your life, as a gift, to replace one's own bible and or to use in conjunction with another bible if you are seeking a study bible to use for personal time.
This Bible is the NKJV (New King James Version), which means that it is true to the original language, which is why so many people prefer the KJV, but it is a little simpler for modern readers to understand since there are no "thee's" and "thy's". What sets this Bible apart from other Study Bibles is the features Lucado has contributed...
* Life Lessons - These appear throughout the Scripture in the margins, it's kind of a "run-down" on what a certain section is about. What is happening, what we can observe, and what we can learn from it. All given in Lucado's unique style, as if you're sitting there having a conversation with him.
* Full-Page Devotional Studies - Throughout the text are several full-page topical devotional studies. They cover a wide variety of topics: disappointment, fear, prayer, money, truth, salvation... etc. (I can't tell you all of them now can I?) Each one has a brief discussion about the topic, then a scripture passage to study, along with questions pertaining to the topic...Read more ›
