This is the third edition of the NIV Life Application Study Bible and my first one. This Bible is has a lot of information including: charts, references, maps, profiles, and statistics throughout the pages. Each book contains an introduction, key verses, people, purpose, writer, setting, and more information. It is also a red letter Bible with a text font of 8.5, which makes it easier to read. It is also single column, which leaves some room to take notes.
There are a lot of pros to the Life Application Study Bible, in addition to the reasons above. It has multiple editions in many different versions. It will be an amazing reference for any believer at any level of their study of the Word.
The only con is that it is a little on the heavy side, which some people may not like.
Overall, I love this Bible. I would recommend it to anyone who wants an in-depth Study Bible and since it is multiple translations, there is one out there for everyone. I received a copy from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.
