What Is Life Application?

Life Application is making the Bible matter. It’s the difference between theoretical study of the Bible and living it out. It’s the difference between knowing what Jesus said and doing what Jesus said. Life Application Bibles look at what was written in the Bible hundreds if not thousands of years ago and translate its message into what that means for Christians today.

This means looking in depth at the context of when the Bible was written as well as what was written. It means understanding why it was written in the first place and what life was like for those original writers and readers. With all this information to hand its possible to look at the similarities and differences between then and now and work out what is transient and times related, and what is unchangeable and constant.

It’s not a case of giving high handed orders to lowly folk from theological scholars disconnected from real life of ordinary Christians, churches and communities. It’s very much a case of sharing expertise and understanding to help you decide how to respond in your situation. Notes, maps, timelines, introductions, histories and personality profiles offer a wealth of information which, only a generation ago, would have been beyond the reach of any but the most academic of Bible scholars.

Of course, academic information and even reasoning is never enough. The Bible is not a book to be read understood and returned to its place on the bookshelf. It’s a book to be taken into the real everyday world and applied to its issues, problems, concerns and challenges. It’s the Haynes manual for living as God intended in the 21st century. Life Application Study Bibles begin by giving you a step by step understanding of what the Bible says, but it doesn’t stop there.

Study notes, resources and complete index systems let you come to the Bible with an issue or a problem and be directed to where the answer lies. Any and all personal, community and global question has the route to a lasting and just answer somewhere in the Bible’s pages. Life Application Study Bible make finding that answer more straightforward that having to do it all on your own. – Les Ellison

How and why choose a Life Application Bible?

Well, if Bibles were cars, Life Application Bibles would be four-wheel drives, the Swiss army knives, the Doc Marten Boots and Radio Times of the Bible world. In short, Application Bibles get the job done. They have most of what you’d find in other kinds of Bible – though not in the same depth or detail. What they have that other Bibles generally don’t is real life practicality.

Knowing what this or that Bible verse said in the original Greek, or what that verse meant in 605BC Babylon is one thing, knowing what it means for you – and how it can get you through your day is quite another. This is where Life Application Bibles shift into 4WD, flip out the right tool, pull tight the laces and get straight to the programme you need. Book by book, chapter by chapter and verse by verse, Life Application Bibles never leave you wondering what it’s all about. Life Application is knowing that if it’s in the Bible it’s there for a purpose and it’s there for you.

That doesn’t mean you can just sit back and be taken for a smooth ride. The Bible’s a tough book and so is making it work in real life. And don’t think you can’t just wait for it to simply hand you the right tool for the job. Sometimes you have to go looking for it in the themed index. But it’s all in there for you – and following the 365 day planner will make sure you don’t miss anything. Just as everyone has a different life, so there’s a different Life Application Bible for everyone… well, not quite. But there are dozens of edition in a wide choice of colours and styles, so there’ll be one to fit your lifestyle like a strong pair of Docs!
