I recently received the Life Application Study Bible Devotional from Tyndale Publishers. This devotional is setup slightly differently from others that I have. Instead of dates it uses weeks and days. This may seem like a minor change, but it really does promote a daily reading schedule as it can be difficult to find your day if you only pick it up occasionally other than just reading randomly. Each week has a theme centric to Jesus in some manner bases on scripture and accompanied with devotion and questions.
Overall I found this to be a decent devotional. I love reading scripture, so having that on each page was good. Personally I felt the devotional portion to be a bit lacking. The inferences read into the scripture with these were overreaching. That being said I did enjoy the questions portion. I found them to be thought provoking in a manner that would really make one think of how to apply the scripture to one’s life. I would simply put in more scripture from the New and Old Testament and less story telling. All in all I found it to be a good book and one that would encourage the daily reading and application of God’s Word.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a review.
