I have to admit that I was very excited to be receiving a copy of the Life Application Study Bible Devotional. I own a copy of the Life Application Study Bible, and have always found it to be an easy, concise resource in understanding Biblical passages. The Life Application Study Bible Devotional completely lived up the the high expectations I had.
The format of the devotional is split up into 52 "weeks" of reading. Within each week, there are six daily devotionals - one for each weekday, as well as one devotional for the weekend. Each week covers one main topic, such as Jesus' birth, Jesus' return, and Jesus' heals. I really liked how each day of the week tied into the main theme, and it made the devotionals really tie together.
Each devotional consists of a passage from the Bible, in an easy interpretation. Each daily devotional also discusses the passage and then offers up some deeper questions to make the scripture more personal, and help me to understand how these particular scriptures are relevant, and how they affect my walk with Christ. The daily devotionals are relatively short, usually between one and two pages long, which makes it very easy to fit into my schedule, as it requires only about five minutes to read. This was a great way to start or end my day.
My personal opinion of this devotional was that it is a great daily resource for those of us who desire a closer, more intimate picture of Jesus. It also really offers up thought provoking questions that helped me to understand the bigger picture, and how each particular "story" somehow could be tied of my life. I really loved everything about this devotional, from the format to the easy to read Bible passages, to the length of the devotionals. This would make a great gift for a loved one, or a great tool for personal spiritual growth. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to know Jesus better.
