Book Description

9 Mar 2001 Niv Bible
The most extensive resource Bible in the world is also the first Bible specifically designed to help you apply what you read to everyday life. The Bible is a life-changing book. But how can something from the ancient world apply to life at the dawn of the twenty-first century - to personal relationships, family life, the working environment, self-image, and complex moral issues? The Life Application Study Bible bridges the gap. Nearly 100 contributors and scholars (many with pastoral experience) from a variety of denominations, helped to prepare the notes, profiles, charts, maps, index, and other helps which make this volume go way beyond ordinary study Bibles. The New International Version is the world's most popular contemporary English translation of the Bible, ideal for all ages. If you've ever read the Bible and then frankly asked the question, 'So what? How do I apply this?'; the Life Application Study Bible is for you. Includes the following unique features: Application Notes Over 10,000 life application notes help you understand the meaning of the Bible and apply its truth to your life. Personality Profiles A unique feature, giving observations on the strengths and weaknesses of over 100 key people in the Bible. Thematic Index Over 1,700 entries increase the usefulness of this Bible by pointing you to specific notes, charts, maps and profiles that are relevant to contemporary issues. Book Introductions These focus on the main themes of each book in the Bible, to highlight its relevance to today. Including outlines, timelines, and other key facts. Maps and Charts Now at last you can visualize where people and places are without having to refer to a separate atlas or map section. Over 200 maps are included on the pages where you need them. And over 250 charts make it easier to understand key points in the Bible text. Harmony of the Gospels 250 key events in the life of Jesus give a broadly chronological picture of Jesus' ministry. Each event is cross-referenced to a special heading in the gospels text. Cross References References in the margin point to other scriptures relevant to the passage being read. Commendations: 'The Life Application Study Bible is an ideal resource for everyone who wants to dig deeper and discover more about the relevance of the Bible to life and the big questions we all face today.' - Steve Chalke, Oasis Trust 'Simple to use, crammed with facts and wisdom, the Life Application Study Bible is for anyone who wants to see how the Bible is as relevant today as it ever was.' - Mike Pilavachi, Soul Survivor 'With such rich background information about people and customs, this is a wonderful way to make the Bible come alive for all the family.' - Rob Parsons, Care for the Family 'I consider the Life Application Study Bible best in providing both excellent interpretation and practical application.' - Luis Palau, International Evangelist 'With its no-nonsense commentary and clear study aids, the Life Application Study Bible is not likely to be left on the shelf. Now that it is available with the proven and popular NIV text, its usefulness for both individuals and groups will surely increase.' - David Coffey, General Secretary, Baptist Union of Great Britain 'Few Christians have the time to refer to a range of commentaries when studying the Bible. The Life Application Study Bible takes the pain out of research and gives easy-to-read and relevant information.' - Rob Frost, Methodist Evangelist

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Study Bible 18 Jan 2007
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to own, but don't buy too expensive 9 Jun 2008
By Dr. K. E. Patrick TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Christian growth! 9 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Leather Bound
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars oh I seeeeeee! 15 Feb 2010
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.
