This is a lovely bible in your hands, once opened it stays opened til you close it or switch to a different page and it has all the features of the great Life Application information that everyone likes. It was amazingly affordable.
I have had a Life Application Study Bible previously in the Living Bible translation. I decided to buy the NIV Life Application bible as the NIV is what I have used for years. The Living Bible translation helped me early on to understand the Word. I still use it from time to time but decided to invest in the NIV version for indepth search and study. Its a Fine bible.
