A "Lifehack" describes any advice, shortcut, tip or skill that will help you get things done more efficiently and effectively.
The NIV Lifehacks Bible uses "lifehacking" methods to give you practical and achievable tools to integrate spiritual habits into your busy, technology-centric, 21st century life. With 365 articles covering 30 life-changing disciplines, not only does this Bible illuminate scriptural wisdom on spiritual practices, it provides practical tips and strategies for applying them every day.
Youll find these and other articles inside the Bible:
- 4 Tips for Making Wise Decisions
- 6 Steps for Interpreting the Bible
- 7 Questions for Recognizing Intentional Sins
- 4 Tips for Finding Time to Pray
Featuring a foreword by author and theologian Kevin DeYoung, the NIV Lifehacks Bible is full of common-sense articles on foundational topics such as: prayer, self-reflection, character formation, and fasting. The Bible then features advice and helpful tips for building habits around these disciplines.
Joe Carter is an editor for The Gospel Coalition, a senior editor at the Acton Institute, a communications specialist for the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, and an adjunct professor of journalism at Patrick Henry College. He is the co-author of How to Argue like Jesus: Learning Persuasion from History's Greatest Communicator (Crossway, 2009).

PennyMindingMomAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Use your Bible study time more effectively and effeciently.October 5, 2016PennyMindingMomAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When life gets busy it is often our time with God that gets pushed aside to make room for everything else. Thats not how its supposed to be, but it happens all too often. Finding a few quiet moments in the midst of lifes chaos should be our top priority. The NIV Lifehacks Bible: Practical Tools for Successful Spiritual Habits is a Bible that will help you to use your Bible study time more efficiently and effectively.
The NIV Lifehacks Bible: Practical Tools for Successful Spiritual Habits is a Bible designed to help with your Spiritual Formation. This Bible focuses on ways to integrate these disciplines like prayer and scripture understanding into our hearts and mind so that we can be more like Christ.
This bible contains over 1000 tips and suggestions to aid in your spiritual growth. The goal is that you will find at least eight things to apply to your life, in each of the eight categories of spiritual formation that are listed on page 1369. By applying these habits daily and with Gods help, they are enough to change your life forever.
The layout of the pages is similar to other study Bibles I have had in the past. Scattered throughout the Bible are articles that focus on a particular habit. They each have title, scripture reference, habit, tip and the article itself. At the end of each article is a short practical takeaway and instructions on where to find your next reading.
The Bible is hardcover which will help it stand up to daily use. I personally find the pages thin, making them less than ideal to highlight important passages. The font is sharp and clear making it easy to read.
In the back of the Bible you will find some excellent indexes that will help you on your journey. There is an index of Readings by Habit, a Subject Index and a series of maps. The Bible also contains a suggested reading plan that will guide you through the Bible in one year.
The NIV Lifehacks Bible: Practical Tools for Successful Spiritual Habits is a Bible designed to help guide you through your spiritual life. It is a Bible that you can revisit at different times of your life and you will find something new to discover.

Just Commonly4 Stars Out Of 5Practical & transformativeJune 8, 2016Just CommonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The NIV Lifehacks Bible is unlike many of the study Bibles out there. It's not a commentary type Bible, nor is it a devotional with personal human-interest stories to draw relevance with the readers. This Lifehacks Bible focuses not on scholarly insights, but on the spiritual transformation from the truth of the Bible. The notes provided by Joe Carter, have an "eternally significant, focus and purpose: to explain and illuminate what Scripture says about spiritual formation and to provide practical tips, techniques and suggestions to help develop those life-changing habits in your own life." (intro) And with that said, I believe the 365 articles throughout the Bible provides a good grasp on the practical ways to follow the teachings in the Bible. Not to say it replaces what the Bible itself says, but take it as a cliff note version of specific disciplines. For example, one of the articles is "How to pray like David," giving a brief description of who David is and a Biblical passage to read, and then listed 3 ways we can learn to model David's prayer life. There are quite a few "how tos," but there are also many "whats and what is". At the end of each article, there is a simple sentence as the "practical takeaway," providing readers the gist of what the article is meant to explicate.
Visually, the hardcover and personal size makes it easy to carry. The beginning of the Bible, beside the typical table of contents listing the Books of the Bible in order, it also includes a list of the Books of the Bible in alphabetical order, a "Bible in a Year" chart (always love those), and a directory of all articles in alphabetical order. In the back, the "Study Helps" section includes a table of weights & measures (very useful!), the endnotes, a subject index and an index to readings by habit (practical lifehacks). Also, I appreciate the full color maps in the back as well. The fonts are a good size and easy to read. Being the New International Version, it's a widely used version due to its easy to comprehend translations. The pages are so white, with lettering all in black, I almost want to highlight and start marking this Bible up to give it some differentiation for easier read and favorite passages to "pop".
In all, informative and practical, with ways to deepen your knowledge of certain Biblical references, as well as providing tools for spiritual habits that's transformative. If you're stuck or not sure how to apply Biblical principles, check out the NIV Lifehacks Bible. It might be one way to help you.
