I have the personal sized, black and white floral cover design copy of this Bible and it is gorgeous!

This is my first Bible and it will probably be the only one I ever use. I love the NLT translation first of all. I don't know why NIV is so popular. Both NLT and NIV are modern translations, but I find that NLT is much clearer in the intended meaning, whereas NIV can leave me guessing for days.

The study notes and charts are AMAZING!!! I cannot stress enough how much they have helped me. I am a bo

This Bible is a great version for study and easy reading. The study guides are wonderful. On many pages, the study guide is half the page and the Bible reading is the other half. The Bible is brought into clarity with this version. I highly recommend it to anyone!

I've read through many different study bibles in my work as a youth minister. I haven't found any to be easier to understand or have more useful information than the Life Application Study Bibles. The NLT version works well as it is generally seen as truer the the biblical text. In general the commentary does a great job giving very useful information right on the page regarding the historical activities going on during the time of the verse being referenced.

With the stated purpose of helping the reader “understand the Bible and apply it to your life” the award winning Chronological Life Application Study Bible developed by an “interdenominational team of pastors, scholars, family counselors and a national organization dedicated to promoting God’s Word” is a very comprehensive study Bible.

Formatted in a chronological, rather than traditional and canonical order, this Bible is filled a variety of helpful study aids and information to help the reader

I can't say enough good things about this study bible. I own several study bibles but none are like this. Most study bibles tell you the authors' interpretations of a passage and/or mostly useless facts. This bible gives you real actions you can take in your life to apply Jesus' teaching and strengthen your relationship with God. Full of questions to ask yourself, actions to take and life lessons it's a totally different kind of study bible. Download a free sample on iBooks and see for yourself!

Romans 8:39

No power in the sky above or in the earth below -- nothing, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

I received as a gift this NLT (New Living Translation) bible and find that it is so informative. I have yet to use the DVD. Many of the sentences are very similar to the NIV (mostly what I have memorized). But I find the history in addition to the scriptures very helpful even though I still use my "W

A nice readable translation, giving some extra descriptives where the metaphor might be lost in English. Also translates into estimates for English units instead of Ancient ones (Feet and inches, instead of Cubits, Pounds and Tons instead of shekels and talents). Also translates dates into approximate Gregorian calendar dates, which is nice. The commentary is all about (as the title might imply) applying the text to your life. Not a lot of history, but a lot of application. Good Stuff.

easy-to-read wording; my wife has the New International Version NIV but there have been some times this Bible's wording was a bit more understandable.

I would recommend a new method of Bible reading - Professor Horners Bible Reading System (http://thelawmanchronicles.blogspot.c...) - odd long name but give it a try....

There is a reason for this book being the most translated book in the world...It's incredibly interesting and so close to life today. I just fell in love with that book, it's so great, it helps me what to do in different situations and I cannot get enough from the bible.
it's difficult to say which is my favorite part cause the whole book is just WoW :-)

While I've only recently received this bible I'm already enjoying having the study notes there. Really helps add depth and understanding to the passages, particularly for a scripture neophyte such as myself.

Amusing that there is a "date I finished this book". If I ever find myself "finished" reading the bible, then my next of kin will need to notate the date. :)

This study bible is a winner. Lots of color photos, maps, illustrations, timelines, as well as the Life Application Bible study notes. It's presented chronologically to help the reader get a grasp on the whole order of things in the bible. Highly recommended.

When I received a copy of the Chronological Life Application Study Bible it was love at first sight. It has been said that you can’t judge a book by its cover; however, the dust cover of this Bible is an exception as it is in full-color and very appealing to the eyes, giving one the sense that if the cover is this great then the Bible itself has to be pretty incredible as well. And incredible it is.

When I first got it I gingerly opened the Bible and studied it as a whole first thinking to myself

Review on my blog:

The Chronological Life Application Study Bible is a great study Bible. I absolutely love how the Bible is arranged chronologically, so that you can read straight through instead of flipping to certain books/chapters when you want to read things in the order they happened. I really liked how, in the introduction, they said that "While helpful as a tool for gaining insight into the

The New Living Translation has been my Bible of choice for years. I love the way it translates each verse in such a way that is very easy to understand for everyone from novices to the most seasoned Bible readers. When I was given the chance to review this particular Bible I jumped at it and I'm glad I did. I would like to share some of the features I think are outstanding in this Bible.

Published by Tyndale House Publishers

The Chronological Life Application Study Bible presents the Bible in a chronological manner. Rather than being broken down into the books we are all familiar with the Bible is presented in a historical timeline. Naturally Genesis still starts everything off because as it says "In the beginning God created..."

Some of the wonderful things about it ~~ Chronological ~~ so cool to have the passages arranged as they occurred in history. Last year the kids and I started studying ancient history and WOW! it was amazing to see the Scripture in its historical context -- made some of the

We understand the psalms best when we “stand under” them and allow them to flow over us like a rain shower. We may turn to Psalms looking for something, but sooner or later we will meet Someone. As we read and memorize the psalms, we will gradually discover how much they are already part of us. They put into words our deepest hurts, longings, thoughts, and prayers. They gently push us toward being what God designed us to be—people loving and living for him.” 1 likes
