Reviews - What do customers think about NLT Student Life Application-Blue Bond (Repack)?
Good translation, terrible notes Nov 21, 2004
The NLT translation is a nice one, particularly for teens. It is thought-for-thought rather than word-for-word, which means it is less accurate to the source texts in some places, but also a lot more lyrical and lively.
But the notes are atrocious. I do not think they should be read unless other points of view are also read. They make erroneous statements about "Christianity" and what "Christians" believe when in fact nearly every note is applicable only to a particular brand of contemporary conservative American evangelical Christianity. And, the "real life" anecdotes are obviously false, many in fact retelling urban myths, in an attempt to vilify non-"Christians".
I would recommend either the NIV Student Bible or the NRSV Access Bible instead. Both have accessible notes, one from a conservative (but still thoughtful) perspective and one from a mainline perspective, and would be far better introductions to the Bible for young people.
Excellent Bible! May 2, 2004
This is an excellent bible for students and adults alike! The translation is amazing (my favorite) because it's not only exceptionally accurate (translated from the Greek & Hebrew text) but also written in conversational everyday English, so it's like a breath of fresh air you totally understand what your reading. And when it comes right down to it that's exactly the way Paul wrote his epistle's to the people - in everday common Greek language that people used on the street. And isn't that the point to read God's word in everyday speech so you can understand and apply what you've read.
Content wise it's amazing and presented in a very graphically pleasing and easy to read manner. Very attractive. There are book intro's, life application notes in the text, relevant "Ultimate Issues" articles, "Here's what I did" articles of students and how they lived out the word in their lives, "I wonder" articles, "Moral Dilemma" notes of real life case studies where young people had to make important decisions, "Personality Profiles" of bible people, "MegaThemes" at end of each book are study questions on the main themes of that book, also there are charts, maps and artistically designed memory verses. The content is so personal and applicable for student and adult alike. And graphically it's such a treat to read.
The only drawback I have with this bible and a pet peeve of mine with Tyndale's bible design's is that I wish they would go all the way on their design. They always do something to short change it. In this case and in most cases with them they could have gone all the way and printed with two colors as opposed to one color black. Also, they could have used better quality whiter/thinner paper. I love thin paged bibles and I know alot of bible readers do. Those two drawbacks is the reason why I didn't give this bible the full 5 stars treatment.
The Best Bible Available Jul 22, 2003
This is the best Bible I've ever owned. It's written so it is easily understood by anyone these days. I've had another teen Bible, but this one way surpasses it in quality and readability. I would highly recommend this Bible to anyone new to to Christianity or has been a Christian for a long time. I had always considered myself pretty Bible literate, but this one made me realize a lot more. It is also great at showing how you can use the Bible as an everyday example. This is a must have for every Christian.
A great map for the Christian journey! Oct 19, 2002
This Bible is one of my most cherished treasures. The Life Application Bible for Students is a great source of truthful and reliable help and information. It is the best gift that any person can get or give away. It is priceless and the best self-help book out there! Your money won't be wasted at all.
Wonderful! Apr 2, 2002
This Bible is wonderful! It is easily understood and written in plain language and not Biblical language, ie., thee, thou, ye, etc. It is like reading a story in a regular book. It also has examples of how teens handled encounters and also how to handle future problems that might come up. I would recommend this Bible not only for students, but also for older people too. I've purchased four for my family members.
