Well what can I say, except I own a fair amount of Bibles, NIV, RSV, NRSV, Good News Bible and KJV. I received this version this morning, and it wieghs an absolute ton! Due to the amount of information there. From People Profiles to Time lines and maps. Also the notes regards passages are excellent.

The best thing about this version is that at the begining of each Book there is a short yet very indepth introduction giving you an overview of the subjects that book covers, maps of the Area that events occured and much more.

For anyone who reads the Bible this is a must have version, it is The Holy Bible that you can apply to you everyday life and you can actually discover more of what God's word means.

The NIV is and has always been clear and easy to understand without loosing the feel of the Scripture, I feel personally the NRSV may have lost some of that feel, silly things like substituting, Jesus for "He" in many passages and also removing all the gender references from this version to me is a bad thing.

NIV doesn't do this, and I am pretty sure that the questions you find whilst reading this Life Application Study Bible will answer them.

A word to about Amazons delivery, Simply exceptional! I placed the order after 2pm yesterday 25th August and asked for 1st Class delivery (Note NOT Next DAY) and at 5.30 I got an email saying dispatched via City Link.

The order Arrived this morning at 9.00am not even 24 hours I had to wait.

Format: Hardcover
I've had my NIV Life Application Bible now for six years. As I look at it sitting there on the desk beside me, it's pretty worn out - the dust jacket is in pieces and the hard cover has become separated from the pages (which thankfully are all still there). Besides this there are numerous coffee stains and thousands of hand-written notes on the dog-eared pages. In short this Bible and I have been through a lot together. Not only is the text the wonderfully clear and readable NIV but the notes themselves have enabled me to understand and apply the text to my everyday life situation. As I flick through the pages I smile as I remember God speaking to me through those timeless and all-important words. In my role as a pastor I have found the notes to be invaluable, not only in producing sermons that people can relate to and understand, but also in pretty much every area and aspect of ministry.

I probably have ten or more Bibles on the shelf and around the house. This is the one I use more than any other. I highly recommend it.

Format: Hardcover
I'm a moderate reader of the Bible who goes through spells of faithfulness, sometimes even intensity, and then drifts away for a while. I establish this so that, when I say the pages are starting to fall out of my ten-year-old Life Application Study Bible, you'll know that I'm not a really heavy user of it and yet it's showing its mortality despite its immortal subject matter.

So, when you buy one ... not "if", but when ... then I wouldn't suggest a really fancy leather version. The hardback is fine.

As other reviewers have noted, the text is clear, has a lot of helpful additional information, is well cross-referenced with commentary, concordance, and maps. I, too, own about half-a-dozen Bibles: NASB, NIV, Amplified, an NIV Jesus Bible, a CEV Knowledge Bible, a NKJV Children's Ministry Resource Bible, etc., but when I'm doing my own personal Bible study and reading, I always pick the Life Application Study Bible. It just 'splains things better.

That's why I'm planning to buy another one, after I trot along to the bookstore to thumb through some hard copies before making my decision about which translation of LASB I want to buy this time.

Format: Hardcover
The lovely thing about this particular Bible is that it unpacks all the information so it is easy to understand and relevant to modern life. Until now I've not been able to 'swallow' the Old Testament without getting very confused but with this version, not only is it NIV so it's a good all-round commonly used translation but everything you need to know to understand it is at your fingertips, making it a real page-turner. I particularly like the way that soon after a key character is introduced we get a feature on him/her, almost like their CV which helps us to 'know' them better and understand who they are and how their input helped change the world.
The Bible has everything: romance, intrigue, crime, lust, incest and miracles; it is an incredible story and it is just SO fulfilling to have a version that I'm able to sit down and read without it being a chore, it's fascinating stuff. I can't rate this highly enough, if there were 100 stars on the rating scale I'd give it 100. God Bless.

I was a KJV advocate before I got the NIV Life Application Bible, and now I can finally understand what the Bible means. Not only is the NIV text beautiful and understandable, but the Life Application notes are a must for Christian growth, in that they not only explain the text of the Bible, but they tell you how to apply the Bible to your life. This is a Bible worthy of reading for all times. Thank you!

I already have a study bible, but wanted an easier to use more modern one, and this is it. It is extremely user friendly - all the additional information is on the same pages as the bible text. It is also written in such a way, you want to keep going on and exploring more, as it brings the Word to life. I bought this for leading study groups to give better background info on the texts, and found it really helpful for giving better understanding to the background and meaning, as it is completely relevant, easy to understand language AND has great application notes. It also has plenty of maps and biography boxes to better 'ground' the reader in the verses. Superb bible and commentry - Highly recommended.
