Product Description

"So what?" That's the response many people have to the Bible. Read a passage, interpret it, and still they ask, "So, what difference does that make in my life?"
In the Life Essentials Study Bible, renowned Bible teacher Gene Getz complements the full text of the popular HCSB translation by elaborating on 1,500 principles in Scripture that are as relevant today as when the 66 books of the Bible were written. Distilling these truths into principles, Getz helps the reader more easily remember and effectively apply the Bible's wisdom to everyday life. He explains how each of these principles represents a supracultural truth—one that can and should be applied at any moment in history and in every cultural situation.
In addition, the Life Essentials Study Bible was created with an integrated digital study system—more than 250 hours of free online coaching content led by Getz—that fosters a greater understanding of the Bible's grand story.
Features
  • Getz's pertinent questions inspire personal reflection or group discussion of each principle
  • Book introduction to each book of the Bible and its list of corresponding principles
  • A topical index
  • Cross references for all 1,500 principles
  • A two-piece gift box
  • Presentation page
  • Gold page edges
  • Ribbon marker
  • 9.50" x 7.00" x 1.50"

Publisher's Description

"So what?" That's the response many people have to the Bible. Read a passage, interpret it, and still they ask, "So, what difference does that make in my life?"

In the Life Essentials Study Bible, renowned Bible teacher Gene Getz complements the full text of the popular HCSB translation by elaborating on 1,500 principles in Scripture that are as relevant today as when the sixty- six books of the Bible were written. Distilling these truths into principles, Getz helps the reader more easily remember and effectively apply the Bible's wisdom to everyday life. He explains how each of these principles represents a supracultural truth - one that can and should be applied at any moment in history and in every cultural situation. 

In addition, the Life Essentials Study Bible was created with an integrated digital study system--more than 250 hours of free online coaching content led by Getz--that fosters a greater understanding of the Bible's grand story. 

Along the way, Getz adds pertinent questions in print to inspire personal reflection or group discussion of each principle. There's also an introduction to each book of the Bible and its list of corresponding principles, plus a topical index and cross references for all 1,500 principles. Other features of this dynamic study Bible - available in six different editions - include a two-piece gift box (leather editions only) as well as a presentation page.

"Owning a copy of this astounding project containing the prodigious work and wisdom of my friend and mentor Gene Getz will be like having him in the next room -- available to advise me on every passage. Being able to access his video teaching on each of the 1,500 ‘Principles to Live By’ is a breakthrough approach, making this truly the first multi-media study Bible. What a treasure! I know it will inform my own writing."

    I think the principles are good; it is the format that I do not like. They are in the middle of the chapter rather than the end.

    I have had many bibles, but this is the BEST one yet! I no longer need to grab other books to look things up. This bible is easy to read and thoroughly explains and breaks down everything that I've read. The video sermons that you access with the QC reader are so helpful. I will be recommending this bible. Especially good for those that have found it difficult to read the bible.

    After just completing Biblical Counseling classes I was very pleased that there was a section on counseling included in this version. I would recommend this study bible to anyone. I also am a fan of Gene Getz.

    For the price this is a great buy in terms of quality and quantity of helpful information. This is not a "standard" study Bible, which contains notes on difficult passages. Instead, the Life Principles concentrate on the application of Scripture to our daily lives. The Life Essentials Study Bible is based on the easy to read and accurate Holman Christian Standard Bible translation. It contains a large concordance, a very helpful topical index for the Life Principles and maps. Although the Life Principles contain a QR code that can be accessed by a smart phone for additional information, the info can also be accessed on any computer with internet access. Nevertheless, the Bible is fully functional as a stand-alone text. The Life Principles are exceptionally helpful to those who want to learn practical application of the Scriptures they are reading. Also, Dr. Goetz's well balanced notes are very helpful for teachers or church leaders to use in lessons or as devotionals. This is a unique and helpful study Bible.

    This study bible is by far my favorite! Dr. Getz is a great teacher and easy to understand. The 1500 principles from the Life Essentials Study Bible are a great resource for everyone, regardless of background or culture! For smart phone users you will absolutely love the QR Codes that are found with each of the 1500 principles. I have also used the website connected to this Bible which includes Dr. Getz's video teachings and provides an area where you can record personal notes. The amount of research, video and time that it took to put this Bible together is astounding but not surprising given the man who is behind it ...Dr. Getz! I have enjoyed this Bible so much that I bought several copies for some good friends for Christmas. Buy it ...you'll be glad you did!

Q: Life Essentials I am interested in the Life Essentials Bible. I read the reviews, and saw where one person was disappointed because he felt that he could not use the bible since he did not own a Ipad or computer. I do have a computer. Is there something you must access to use the bible the computer? I saw the video and it referenced a smart phone, which I don't own. Please explain. I'm from the Dark Ages. thanks. Lela

A: This Bible features QR Codes which can be scanned, using an iPhone, for additional video supplements. The Bible can be used without an iPhone, you just cant access the additional content. We recommend checking the available sample pages to see how they are laid out and whether you feel the QR codes will detract from your ability to enjoy the Bible.
