Max Lucado Life Lessons ~ Review
A Book Sneeze Review
This is a lovely book. A lovely Bible. Lucado’s Life Lessons Study Bible is well presented with an easy to understand introduction.
If you aren't familiar with reading a bible, the "How to study the Bible" section is easy to understand and it also gives an insight as to why to study the bible.
In the margin of each page, you will find the ‘Lessons’. This is what makes this Bible unique. These lessons are formatted in order of ‘Situation Observation, Inspiration, Application and Exploration.’
‘Situation gives a look into the context of the chapter’
‘Observation explains the point of the action’
‘Inspiration amplifies the point or less found in the chapter’
‘Application’ bring the message home’
‘Exploration lists other scriptures related to the same theme for further study.’
This book also features extra Bible studies throughout. These are full page and easy to read and follow.
You’ll also find ‘Christ Through the Bible’ and ‘New Life in Christ’ articles splashed throughout. These sections answer many questions the reader may have – like ‘What does life as a Christian look like?’
There is also a 2-year reading plan included for those who like direction and structure. And a very comprehensive index to lead you to the relevant verses to answer everyday questions or situations.
I have not read this cover to cover … yet… but from what I have read so far, I am really enjoying this study version of The New King James Bible. The articles and lessons are informative and enjoyable. If you don’t have a Bible or you are looking for a study Bible, give this one a thorough look.
