Never be more than a touch away from the world’s best-selling study Bible!
Imagine reading a familiar Bible passage and gaining fresh insight, as if it were the first time you had ever read it. How much richer your life would be if you left each Bible reading with a new perspective and a small change for the better. A small change every day adds up to a changed life.
The Life Application Study Bible does what a good resource Bible should – it helps you understand the context of a passage, gives important background and historical information, explains difficult words and phrases, and helps you see the interrelationships within Scripture. But it does so much more. The Life Application Study Bible goes deeper into God’s Word, helping you discover the timeless truth being communicated, see the relevance for your life, and make a personal application. While some study Bibles attempt application, over 75% of this Bible is application-oriented. The notes answer the questions, “So what?” and “What does this passage mean to me, my family, my friends, my job, my neighborhood, my church, my country?”

Is and does just what I need but...
I don't want to sign in, at all, and I don't want to be asked to sign in every time I open the app. Can you change this? I paid for the app fair and square, and have the print version of the bible (actually had that first for years). I prefer to read on the app, and it's just very annoying and counter-productive for the "sign-in" prompt to be the first page to get through and have to confirm you don't want to sign-in. I don't want to sign-in! Can you make it whereas you at least ask periodically and not every time I open the app to read the word? I paid the top dollar to read the word and have access to it as God intends, not to be asked to sign in. I don't feel the need to sign in under any circumstances right now. I don't want an account. There doesn't need to be an account for everything. This is a huge annoyance for me. I should have wrote this review months ago. I tried to be patient about it but it's beyond frustrating. Please advise.
Very Good -- A little Buggy
I love this app. I think they have pushed the technology pretty hard. I have an iPad 1.0, no camera. Sometimes I have to try 3 or 4 times for it to load, but it finally gets there. Highlights usually work but sometimes don't highlight, then the next time my highlights might be there! Notes usually scroll with the bible text but sometimes I have to scroll around a bit for them to synch up. Updates take a long time to load and installing them is a little complex. Eventually I get there. Other Bibles I have respond faster but don't have the notes, which to me are exceptional. I also have it on my iPod Touch, but don't use it too much because of the limited space for text. Summing up - some frustration, not an inexpensive app, but I use it weekly.
Don't do update
I like the content, but this new update keeps getting stuck when using my iPad, and the notes don't change when you change the scriptures, it only changes when it feels like it, and at first I couldn't even get into the app cause when I opened it, it would just automatically close right back. I had to reinstall the app to get it to work. Also I didn't like the fact that I paid for this app when I initially downloaded it $29 and with this update I had to pay another $9 to get the same bible again, and I didn't like the fact that it did not save all of my highlighted scriptures and notes I had with the old version, I feel that was a rip off. I wish I would have kept the old version and wouldn't have paid for something that does not work as good as the old.
