Reading the Bible is one of the most important disciplines in the life of a believer. How can one have a relationship with God if they don’t know Him? And how do you know Him apart from His Word? A study Bible can be very helpful in answering the zillion questions that may arise from reading ancient texts. The New Living Translation (NLT) uses lingo that brings Scriptures to life while staying true to the original text. This specific Life Application Bible is filled with great insights, which are written in a way that anyone can understand. Granted, this is not the prettiest looking Bible out there, but it is a phenomenal resource. This is my #1 Bible study tool.
