This Bible is beautiful! I own many Bibles, and the Life Application is the one that is most understandable and applicable to me. It really helps me connect my Bible reading with my daily life. The Bible came very quickly, in just a few days. The leather cover is beautiful and the indexing makes is so easy to find passages. I do wish the words of Jesus were in red as in other Bibles, but I am willing to give that up for the other features and great, understandable explanations this Bible provides. The pricing from Christianbook.com was the best value anywhere. I highly recommend this Bible and Christianbook.com.
My first Bible was an NASB hardcover Bible given to me by an American soldier who was stationed in Germany and visited the Christian community in Amsterdam where I lived in 1974. I immediately fell in love with the NASB and have that Bible still, but it is very old and tattered after many years of use and travel. I bought this new version which has even greater features apart from the clarity and beautiful rhythm of language: study notes, great introduction to each book, extra information relevant to each book, maps etc. as well as the leather cover and gold edging. A true treasure!
I have been using this Bible for a few years. While attending a Bible study I shared some of the commentaries for verses we had read. The information was such a blessing, and so practical as well as understandable, that 3 of these people now have this Bible. It is so much fun to see how this Bible has created an amazing desire in these people to read & study God's word, that was not there before. They are now understanding how to put His word into practice in daily living. Seeing the power in knowing & doing what God instructs us is making a wonderful difference in these lives. The Spiritual growth I see in this group is very exciting, because God is truly getting all the glory.
This NASB edition of the Life Application Study Bible has been a tremendous product to me! I also own the NLT edition of said Bible but I fell in love with the literal translation of the NASB. I had to buy a NASB edition almost immediately and I'm glad that I bought this particular one. The leather is very good and size wise, it isn't as bulky as I initially anticipated. What has made it even more special is the embossing of my name on the front of the Bible.
The Life Application Study Bible is a fantastic Bible for both young and even mature Christians alike, a fantastic addition to my Christian library at home. I strongly recommend this product to EVERY Christian!! I even enjoyed reading Jesus' words in BLACK letter too.
I had to replace my first one, and the one I recieved is starting to ome apart too. I don't know why I even put it in the Bible cover that was recomanded for it. Maybe I need to try another maker,or something. That was a lot of money to spend on something that just doesn't work.I will wait for a reply from the company.
