This edition of the Bible was allowed into the jail when there are tight restrictions on the types of Bibles allowed in since they can be used as weapons by inmates. I don't know how much the recipient has made use of the Bible--hopefully, a great deal since he is in the "HOLE" as it is called (strict 23 hour a day occupancy in an 8 X 10 cell with no outside light and shared with another inmate. The young inmate was studying with his roommate who is a great student of the Life Application Study Bible. I believe that the Bible, if read and understood, always changes the readers.
I HAVE HAD MANY VERSIONS OF THE BIBLE BUT THIS IS MORE IN DEPTH, EASY TO READ AND TO MOVE THROUGH QUICKLY TO IMPORTANT PLACES, DATES, TIMES, EXPLANATIONS OF SCRIPTURES. JUST ABSOLUTELY THE BEST BIBLE I HAVE.
