Synopsis: The Life Application Study Bible is today's #1 selling study Bible because it helps people see how the Scriptures are relevant to today's issues. Now with the New Living Translation, the Life Application Study Bible makes God's Word even more accessible to those who need it.
Review: How does the Bible speak to my life? This is a burning question for many readers, who may be enchanted by the words and stories but uncertain how to bring the Bible into modern-day living. Each page of the Life Application Study Bible offers numerous footnoted passages that suggest contemporary meanings, helping readers be less literal and more metaphorical in their thinking.
For example, when handling the topic of adultery, the old scripture says that a suspicious husband and his accused wife must visit a priest, who will ask the wife to "drink a jar of bitter water that brings a curse to those who are guilty." If she is not guilty, no harm will come to her. Yes, it would be rather odd to try this nowadays, but the Life Application Study Bible explains that this ritual is a metaphor for building trust. "Today priests and pastors help restore marriages by counseling couples who have lost faith in each other. Whether justified or not, suspicion must be removed for a marriage to survive and trust to be restored." The Life Application Study Bible comes with an index, listing appropriate passages that speak to specific topics and situations. It also includes color maps and timelines of biblical events.
