Life Application Study Bible Devotional Daily Wisdom from the Life of Jesus (Review and Giveaway)

5 Stars!!!!!

ABOUT THE BOOK - Let the life of Jesus sink into your mind and heart with 312 readings from the gospels—one for each weekday and one for the weekend. In the Life Application Study Bible Devotional: Daily Wisdom from Jesus, each week focuses on a different event in Jesus’ life—drawing out daily wisdom from his parables, teachings, conversations, miracles, and interactions with people. You’ll learn important biblical principles, become inspired to put God’s Word into practical action, and be forever changed by a year spent going deeper with your Savior.

MY REVIEW - This is a real nice daily devotional. It is very clear, to the point and easy to understand. I believe even a "new Christian" would not have a problem with using this and following it. It would also be very useful for bible groups, to use as an aid.
I like the layout of it - Each one is labeled - (for ex. - Week 35 Day 4) there is a separate one for the weekends. And each devotional flows real nice.
1. - Reading the Word (a short bible verse or verses).
2. - Setting the Scene (this explains what exactly is said in the bible verses in easy to understand language and what is means)
3. - Getting Personal (usually 2 or 3 questions for you to answer and something for you to think about)
4. - Talking to God (another bible verse for you to meditate on.
It is really very quick. I have used this for 3 weeks now. It only takes about 5 - 10 min each day. If you can't find that time, I think your priorities might be screwed up!
I highly suggest you click on the link to see the first chapter.

  1. This looks really cool. Of all of my Bibles (I have one for everything. It's almost ridiculous, but not really, ya know?) my Life Application is my favorite. It's the one that I've marked up, spilled coffee on, has tattered pages, etc. It isn't the 'prettiest' of all of them anymore but that just means it is my go-to one because of all of the extra information in the particular edition that I have. So what you're reviewing here is of particular interest to me. :)

    It sounds marvelous. Thanks for sharing and for the opportunity.

  5. I have been looking for a new devotional, and this one sounds like it would be perfect for me. I think that I am a lot more familiar and comfortable with the New Testament over the Old Testament, and I would love to put this to good use. Thanks for the great opportunity to win this one, and please do count me in on your great giveaway!

  6. I used to have a Life Application Study Bible but gave it to a friend several years ago. I really miss it - I think it is the best study Bible I ever had. I would love to have another copy, and the addition of daily devotionals sounds great!
