Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Life Application Study Bible: NLT: Personal Size (Hardcover)
I already have a study bible, but wanted an easier to use more modern one, and this is it. I usually use NIV, but this version was recommended to me and I really really like it. The translation from checking back I think is very authentic and carefully done. The notes are also written by well researched commentators.
The study/commentry part is extremely user friendly - all the additional information is on the same pages as the bible text - so no flicking pages. 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. It also has plenty of maps and biography boxes to better 'ground' the reader in the verses. Superb bible and commentry - Highly recommended.
