NIV Life Application Study Bible, Bonded Leather, Distressed Brown
I bought this bible for myself. I wanted a study bible, and wanted a solid quality bible. The notes to the scripture are a bit too small for my eyesight, but have ordered a bookmark magnifier, so no problems. The additional notes are great, and give me food for thought for my own life. Love the cowhide leather. This bible may be a little big for carrying to church, but I ordered a premium leather, thinline bible to carry to church. No hesitation in recommending this bible.

We knew it would be substantial, s'why leather
This is a life application study bible. It needs the leather cover (durability), as this is a heavy book due to the many pages needed to get the "life application" portions. We could've ordered the personal size, but the print is smaller. We ordered those for our children. The inscription on the front also turned out well.

I absolutely love this bible. This version is fantastic. I have a study Bible and I learned a lot it from that. This goes so far beyond an average study Bible. In addition to how to apply it to your life (hense the title), each chapter has vital statistics about the author, setting, when written etc, megathemes of each chapter, and it's beautifully laid out. I wasn't sure how I would like the single column but I love it;makes it easy to read. This bible itself is so pretty. The pink cover is vibrant with raised detail. It is still soft and that was important to me. I highly recommend it!!

Initially I was looking at the NIV Study Bible and didn't consider the Life Application. But, I compared the notes and the Life Application is 200% better!! I spent a lot of time looking into certain bindings, sewn, leather, etc. and this truly is the best. It has the softest and most durable REAL PREMIUM leather. I am looking forward to reading and being blessed from this Bible for decades to come!! 6 stars! And Christianbook has the best price! A $150 Bible for $86! Wow!
