Excellent Study Bible Mar 29, 2007
Really appreciate the 30 Life Principles and the easy references to support the principle as well as further study! Will assist many in their growth with Jesus!
Gift purchase Mar 24, 2007
The books were given as a gift and the recipients are still mentioning the enjoyment, ease of reading and life application provided. One is a Bible teacher and prefers all of the commentary. The cover(including the box in which the bible is packaged)makes an invaluable presentation. Their pleasure is well worth the price, which was not very much considering the cost of comparable Bibles.

Excellent Mix of Study and Applicational Helps... Jan 9, 2007
When I first saw the Bible title, I thought perhaps this would be a man-centered, Christianity-lite Bible, but that is not the case here. So much more than I had expected, The Charles F. Stanley Life Principles Bible strikes a balance between doctrinal helps and applicational helps, which Stanley interweaves in a very natural, buoyant, visually attractive, and thorough yet uncluttered way.
The Bible has a whopping 195 page concordance, "What the Bible Says About" articles, introductions for the 66 Bible books, a "God Promises" feature, and an index for the >300 promises categorized under family, provision, deliverance, justice, obeying, and more. Yet for all these helps, the Bible lives up to its title in offering practical inspiration with such features as
- "Life Principle" articles (for ex, "Obey God and Leave the Consequence to Him"), - "Life Lessons" (>2500 applicational notes scattered throughout), - "Life Examples" (for ex, "Joseph: Waiting and Trusting"), and - "Answers to Life Questions" (located near to scripture tie-ins, for ex, near Gen 39:29 on Joseph one finds "Does God Bring Us Adversity?")
As for the Bible proper, the NKJV is not one of the looser translations, much less a paraphrase, but is a word-for-word literal equivalence translation that improves a bit on the accuracy of the KJV yet keeps the KJV's familiar flowing beauty while also avoiding both the KJV's archaic words, pronouns, and verb endings and also the dry or wooden sound of the NASB. For those concerned about translation issues, it is fairly easy to follow along with either the NASB or KJV, even the NIV, using the NKJV, and anyway, differences between underlying texts are noted in small print.
For those wanting notes that are more of the historical, archaeological, or doctrinal type, this is not the most academic of Bibles, nor does its title advertise itself as a Study Bible. Instead, the Bible falls within the niche somewhere between the more man-centered Life Application Bible and the info-rich MacArthur or Nelson's NKJV Study Bible. Most of all, fans of Charles Stanley's books or television show will surely enjoy this Bible.
