    I learned that God loves us very much that he sent Jesus as our Savior and that he wants all (everybody) to go to heaven for eternity. God has been taking care of his people ever since they have been on this earth. he protects us and gets us through problems through prayer. It makes God very sad to see when people don't worship him and don't obey his commandments including love one another. It makes God very sad when he sees how humans destroy their lives and the lives of others with drug wars and I learned that God loves us very much that he sent Jesus as our Savior and that he wants all (everybody) to go to heaven for eternity.

    I have the personal sized, black and white floral cover design copy of this Bible and it is gorgeous! This is my first Bible and it will probably be the only one I ever use. I love the NLT translation first of all. I don't know why NIV is so popular. Both NLT and NIV are modern translations, but I find that NLT is much clearer in the intended meaning, whereas NIV can leave me guessing for days. The study notes and charts are AMAZING!!! I cannot stress enough how much they have helped me. I am a bo I have the personal sized, black and white floral cover design copy of this Bible and it is gorgeous!

I cannot stress enough how much they have helped me. I am a born again Christian and I very much needed help understanding what I read. I also love the reading plan. I wake up every morning and use the daily reading plan to help me spend time with God. It keeps me organized and focused. Before I got this Bible I was using a simple thinlined NIV Bible that a Christian gave me my first day at church. I tried reading it cover to cover, and failed miserably. This Bible is my own, I connect with it, I love it, and it's easy to read. Get this Bible and read it!!!

The only reason I give it four stars is because some of the explanations are obviously contradictory to the text. Not enough to lessen its total value but enough to note.

    I gave up a long time ago trying to read and understand the Bible, but after reading different parts of this edition, I saw it would be completely doable! This is the first Bible I've ever been able to comprehend. That being said, it would be great for anyone new to the faith of Christianity or even remotely interested in it, children who are of age to read, teens and adults, whoever likes info presented in a manner that doesn't make you read between the lines.

That being said, it would be great for anyone new to the faith of Christianity or even remotely interested in it, children who are of age to read, teens and adults, whoever likes info presented in a manner that doesn't make you read between the lines. The green hardcover is of high quality. (Warning about the small font-size: 8.75; there is a Large Print Edition available if you don't want to strain your eyes or use a magnifying glass.) The footnotes and extra guidance have really helped— (I wanted to explore/study faith on my own without religious pressure or bias.) This bible is one I wish I would have found earlier in life, because I may have connected with the Christian faith more than I do now. I have not found churches or segregated religions that sit well with my heart, so my time with spiritual text is very important to me. My eyes didn't glaze over, and I was actually interested in reading this. It's not all politics, and because of all the extras, I comprehended way more on my own than having the information shared through sermon. In one ear & out the other was NOT the case with this NLT Edition. I want to thank the Goodreads Giveaway Program, author, & publisher for the free print copy I won. It is comforting to have a bible in the house, one that I finally connect with in more ways than I ever have before. For that, I also want to say thank you. All reviews and opinions are voluntarily my own.

    The chronological order adds a fresh through-line to the biblical narrative that is different than the canonical order. The explanations are clear, simple and easy to understand (though sometimes simply redundant in explaining verbatim what you are about to read, which loses half a star for me). The explanation of the historical accounts between the old and new testaments really help to increase one's understanding of the AD/BC split and what exactly was happening in society during the early day The chronological order adds a fresh through-line to the biblical narrative that is different than the canonical order.

The explanation of the historical accounts between the old and new testaments really help to increase one's understanding of the AD/BC split and what exactly was happening in society during the early days. It also gave me a deeper appreciation for the truth that binds the stories. I was specifically appreciative of the intricacy of the psalms and David's adventures, the categorization of Levitical laws and the integration of the epistles into the Acts account. [image error] This is a book that will keep you reading and keep your mind on the scriptures daily, even if it takes you 14 months to finish your 'bible in a year' you will gain so much. I would recommend it to anyone.

    How could you give this book anything LESS than 5 stars? Have you ever read a book so jammed full with stories, characters, plot twists etc.? I think of this book as one of my desert island books. If I had to pick only 5 books to read for the rest of my life stuck on a desert island, this would definitely be one of them. It is absolutely packed with interesting things. It can get tedious, don't get me wrong, the slow parts are definitely a little painful to trudge though.

    This Bible is a great version for study and easy reading. The study guides are wonderful. On many pages, the study guide is half the page and the Bible reading is the other half. The Bible is brought into clarity with this version. I highly recommend it to anyone!

    My rating of 4 stars is, of course, for the NIV Life Application notes which appear at the bottom of each page, not for the text of the Bible itself which will always get the full 5! :) I'm going to assume everyone knew that but wanted to clarify juuuust in case. The notes range from being academic or historic commentary to applications for contemporary life, at times stretching the point a little to make it fit into a modern application. There were several places where I disagreed, even disagre My rating of 4 stars is, of course, for the NIV Life Application notes which appear at the bottom of each page, not for the text of the Bible itself which will always get the full 5! :) I'm going to assume everyone knew that but wanted to clarify juuuust in case.

On those where I did not agree, I viewed them as an example of another person's opinion and something I could use to hone my own views.

The NIV Life Application as well as being in my opinion the best study Bible available, and for me one of the easiest to read as we are not forced to read passages squeezed in to columns on a page. For those that tend to complain about the use of American English this has been Anglicised, so no z where it should be s! As someone who studied Theology and used to using a Bible but still gets brain freeze sometimes I find that this study Bible is a welcome help. As there are a number of study features that are included throughout the Bible, which helps to make the Scriptures more available for all rather keeping many of the books a mystery except for scholars. Why a Life Application Bible? If you are attempting to read the Bible by yourself and have no access to a Priest or Pastor to advise you on how to take the Word and apply it your life there are close to 10,000 study tools to help and advice. The great thing about this Bible it has been worked on by scholars of various denominations so there is ‘political’ slant that way. This is a Bible where the Scriptures are easy to read, explained in plain English and how to apply them to your life. There is so much to praise here with the excellent introductions to each book, with advice notes on them. There are some wonderful charts and maps, excellent cross-referencing, plus an extensive index. The integrity of this translation is intact as the NIV is regarded as the best combination of accuracy and more importantly readability. If you are an old hand at reading the Bible, or coming to the Bible for the first time to read, study and learn I cannot recommend NIV Life Application Study Bible (Anglicised) highly enough. I have the hard back copy and find it excellent, but there are leather and other cover options available. Buy this Bible and you will have access to the Scriptures in a modern way without the scholars waffle!

    I read the entire thing... including footnotes. Took me almost an entire year. I'm not going to comment on the book itself. It's "The Book" and to most people those capital letters are justified, to the majority of the world they are not. I also will not expound on my religious beliefs since they are immaterial to this commentary. I will only comment on this particular version of this book. I was gifted this book by a very religious friend about 15 years ago. It has sat on my shelf since then. But I read the entire thing... including footnotes. Took me almost an entire year.

I was gifted this book by a very religious friend about 15 years ago. It has sat on my shelf since then. But I am an avid reader and this was a book I had never read. So after previosuly abandoning a reading attempt I started anew with a new approach. My cover-to-cover reading didn't cut it. This time I did a "read in a year" the chronological method. This was somewhat cover-to-cover but you did jump between books and sections of books which was interesting to see how different books covered the same events. (Found this reading schedule by google search). The commentary in this book is really why one would buy this version... to "study" the bible. I realize that putting together a publication like this must be an extremely large effort invovling many individuals. Which shows in the footnotes... some books had excellent, helpful footnotes that were more matter of fact and interpretive. Other books had footnotes that were less interrepretive but instead more "preachy" with a feeling of instilling guilt as a motivator. Clearly I favored one technique over the other... so much so that during the "preachy" footnote books I almost dreaded reading them. I will note here that I read this with more of an educational view instead of a religious view, so perhaps those reading with a different motivation will find the opposite and wish the informative footnotes were more guilt ridden... Overall I did think this was well put together resulting in the version of this book that the multitudes of people working on it initially intended.

    God's Word is the best & single most important book. Out of all the books in the world, this is the one I hope that everyone will take time to read. If we are as diligent in reading this as we are in all the other books of the world, our understanding, personal peace, & spiritual life will change not to mention our relationship with Jesus Christ.

    I've read through many different study bibles in my work as a youth minister. I haven't found any to be easier to understand or have more useful information than the Life Application Study Bibles. The NLT version works well as it is generally seen as truer the the biblical text. In general the commentary does a great job giving very useful information right on the page regarding the historical activities going on during the time of the verse being referenced.

Plus there's a great on-line community at DAB and awesome prayer warriers who will pray for you if you post a prayer request. Anyway, after getting a little side-tracked, I love my NIV Life Application Study Bible. Lots of information, footnotes, etc. My sister-in-law gave me this Bible in 2001 and I love it.

I just received this Bible in a Goodreads giveaway where Tyndale was giving away this Bible in a hardcover version. I went to several different passages that I love, to compare, including Romans 8 and others, and thought that the NLT was a nice translation. The notes are the same ones in my old NIV version as in this new NLT version. Thanks to Tyndale and Goodreads for sponsoring the giveaway and for my win. I am happy to add this to my Bibles to study.

    It is unlikely that I will ever truly "read" this, but will instead refer to it from time to time and read passages both greater and lesser in size as the mood strikes me. I do enjoy having a bible for reference, and this was a gift to me when I graduated high school. I am intrigued by the difference in format from the King James bible (and mildly amused that the Catholic church was not listed in the Preface among the denominations of those distinguished scholars who worked on this translation).

    I was given this version for Christmas 2009 by my Mother-in-Law, Barbara Parson, two months before she died. (I am departing from my normal practice of only listing books as "read" which I've read all the way through, because despite reading from this book regularly, I use another volume for my regular reading and study.) The large text was a concession to my age, and my need for a Bible I could read comfortably in public. A very good read.

    With the stated purpose of helping the reader “understand the Bible and apply it to your life” the award winning Chronological Life Application Study Bible developed by an “interdenominational team of pastors, scholars, family counselors and a national organization dedicated to promoting God’s Word” is a very comprehensive study Bible. Formatted in a chronological, rather than traditional and canonical order, this Bible is filled a variety of helpful study aids and information to help the reader With the stated purpose of helping the reader “understand the Bible and apply it to your life” the award winning Chronological Life Application Study Bible developed by an “interdenominational team of pastors, scholars, family counselors and a national organization dedicated to promoting God’s Word” is a very comprehensive study Bible. Formatted in a chronological, rather than traditional and canonical order, this Bible is filled a variety of helpful study aids and information to help the reader better understand scripture and apply it to life on a daily basis. What does it mean to read the Bible chronologically? Well for instance the book of Job, considered to be one of the oldest books in the Old Testament appears after Genesis and before Exodus. And in the New Testament the gospels are arranged in chronological order which means as you read, you may read a passage from Matthew, then a segment from Luke, followed by a chapter from either Mark or John! Divided into 10 chronological segments beginning around 2100 BC and ending with 30 AD to the present, you are given book by book summaries in each section introduction along with other vital and helpful information. As you read through this Bible you are also given timelines which offer clear parallels to events in world history. A key feature of this Bible is the life application notes which run across the bottom of the page and assist the reader with understanding the text and what it means for the reader. This very helpful feature will make books such as the Old Testament book of Leviticus more understandable as you read. Two other helpful features are the numerous maps which illustrate important locations and highlight boxes which highlight important Biblical characters in a particular segment of scripture. Both of these features will assist the reader by giving them some important background information. I liked the design of the pages, with the chronological periods across the top of the page to help the reader keep track of historical period they are currently in and running life application comments across the bottom. And while the pages are busy, I believe that Bible study will be enhanced with regular reading. (And remember, you are reading the Bible chronologically not in the canonical or traditional way!) This Bible will make an excellent study Bible for individuals and for groups as well with the additional features. And a plus for this version is the easy to read New Living Translation (NLT) which allows the Bible to be read in language that is easily understood today. I plan to make this Bible a reference Bible for my sermon study as well as personal study in the years ahead. A wonderful and helpful resource for the serious student of scripture or for one who wants to deepen the study of scripture, Chronological Life Application Study Bible will make an excellent addition to the study of the Bible. For more information go here and learn more about this wonderful Bible. Note: I received a copy of this Bible from Tyndale House Publisher in exchange for a review. I was not required to write a positive review.
