this is a gem! it allows me to read the scriptures deeply to reflect on its application.. Dr Getz not only provides life principles but also explain biblical background of scriptures. i particularly enjoyed the short video clip of Dr Getz where i can listen to his mini sermon on bible verses. i like the reflection question which sllows for self reflection or group discussion... this bible has renewed my passion to immerse in the word of the Lord. highly recommeded. beautiful product.
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.
