Tyndale Life Application Study Bible Review
Of all my study bibles and commentary books, the Life Application Study Bible (LASB) notes are my absolute favorite. The study notes in this bible make you feel like your sitting down for a Q&A session with your own personal pastor. The life application notes explain what the verse in question means and then challenges you to apply the meaning to your life, much like a pastor would. The LASB contains so much more than just study notes. There are introductions to each book of the bible, personality profiles, charts and maps, cross references and so much more. All of Jesus’ words are written in red lettering throughout. This particular bible has the single column text which is unlike most other study bibles. I get the feel that it is meant to be read in more of a story form the way it is laid out. I think I prefer the two column method of studying the bible over the single column, but I believe it comes down to personal preference.
The Life Application Study Bible is of great quality. The bonded leather has proven to be very durable. I really like the ribbon that they attached to this bible. As a matter of fact, I believe this to be my favorite ribbon of all my bibles. It is not brittle and wrinkled like most other ribbons I encounter. I have had no issues with the thumb index tabs after about one years worth of use. They still look as they did the day I received this bible. My only concern with the quality of this particular bible is the binding. When the bible is in the closed position, it appears as though the binding is not butted right up against the bonded leather backing. This leaves a gap down the bookend enough to see light shining through. You typically only get light shining through the bookend when the book is in the open position or the book has aged quite a bit. So far it has not been an issue and has held its own, but it is something I’m keeping an eye on.
The size and weight of this bible is pretty typical when it comes to study bibles. I would say it’s in the middle of the road. Its neither to big or small and the weight of it is what you would expect for a study bible. It is good for both in home study and to take with you on the go.
The LASB is a must have for your library. The notes just make you feel like your having a one on one conversation with a heart felt, caring, and well educated pastor. This bible is excellent for Christians in their early walk in the faith as well as seasoned believers who just need to be reminded of the comforting meanings behind the scriptures. With all the extras that have been provided in this bible along with the best study notes that I have ever read, I cannot praise this bible enough. I highly recommend this bible.
