But what is its relevance for you? How do you apply this ancient account to your life today? What do you have in common with men and women who lived thousands of years ago in agrarian cultures that were vastly different than today's world of computers and freeways and towering city skylines? When you read about the building of the temple in Israel or what Jesus had to say to the Pharisees about the laws of Israel, what timeless principles can you apply to your life? Turn to the Life Application Study Bible. Its wealth of study aids helps you translate scriptural truths into practical action. You'll find hundreds of application notes filled with insights for godly living. Character sketches help you learn from the strengths and accomplishments, weaknesses and mistakes of key Bible characters from Aaron to Zerubbabel. A dictionary-concordance enables you to research important words and concepts. Thorough book introductions and timelines offer an overview of key concepts and help you put the biblical narrative into perspective. NASB translation description: In the mid-20th century, The Lockman Foundation saw the need for a new translation based upon the values that inspired the revered American Standard Version (ASV). Employing the same exacting word-for-word approach as the ASV, a world-class team of conservative translators and scholars drew on the strengths of its predecessor and on new Hebrew and Greek textual sources to produce an all-new translation. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) was released in its entirety in 1971, and was updated in 1995 to render it more understandable to modern-English readers. It is recognized as today's most accurate word-for-word translation. Thousands of in-text application notes will enrich your understanding of the biblical text and show how it relates to what God is doing in your life now. Located near the relevant verse, application notes make understanding the Bible enjoyable and rewarding. Character sketches introduce you to biblical people like Abraham, showing how the choices he made in his epic journey of faith offer insights for your personal journey of faith. The life experiences of people from the Old and New Testament offer eternal perspective on the daily choices we all must make. You'll also learn about cultural backg

Reviews - What do customers think about NASB Life Application Study Bible-HC?
Great Bible, Few Shortfalls Feb 12, 2007
I bought the NASB translation of the Life Application Study Bible along with the NIV Study Bible (Copyright 2002) by Zondervan and together they are wonderful. It is nice to have the more authentic, word-for-word NASB and the thought-for-thought NIV.
The personality profiles of the Life Application give a summary of their lives and the key points to learn from each of the important biblical characters, and there is an abundance of useful, easily understood charts and maps. The introductions to each of the books are nice, and the Harmony of the Gospels system makes sense as a way to refer back and forth between gospels.
On the downside, the concordance is lacking when compared to the much more extensive one found in the NIV Study Bible. Also, I don't like how every single verse is indented and starts on its own line instead of the paragraph form found in the NIV. The cross-reference system in the NIV is also better. Personally I prefer the study notes in the NIV because I am more interested in the history, but the application-oriented ones in the Life Application are nice too, although sometimes a little obvious.
If you had to choose one, I would definitely go with the NIV Study Bible because it is so commonly used in sermons and accepted by most churches. Life Application is a very worthy Bible though too.
Easy does it! Feb 12, 2007
The speed of ordering and receiving my order was outstanding. this site is number one on my list, I recommend them highly.
Life Application Study Bible, NASB Feb 8, 2007
I am in my 60's and found this Bible to be an outstanding version of the Bible. I use it for Bible Study Fellowship (BSF). The explanations, historical data, and clear print help me to understand the Bible and its meaning better than I ever have before in my life. This Bible gives me a clearer Spiritual understanding of Christ. I would recommend this Bible to a new adult Christian just starting to learn or a person who is a biblical scholar.
Life Application Study Bible Jan 15, 2007
My father already had one and my mom loved it. They really like the layout and study notes. She says it really helps with her young couples Sunday School class and the 'in-depth' questions she gets each week.
Great Detail! Jul 2, 2006
