NIV Life Connect Study Bible – Book Review

Are you looking for a NIV Study Bible that will help you to dig deep into Scripture, record the insights that you find as you study God’s Word, and strengthen your spiritual life?

If so, the new NIV LifeConnect Study Bible is filled with resources that may make this Bible perfect for you!

The NIV LifeConnect Study Bible contains a wealth of features designed to help you interact with your Bible and delve deep into Scripture, including:

  • Extensive Book Introductions and Bottom Of The Page Notes adapted from the NIV Archaeological Study Bible
  • Insightful LifeConnect Articles and Quotes by General Editor Wayne Cordeiro
  • SOAP Articles that bring the Bible to life through the study method of Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer
  • Blank Journal Pages that allow you to record your personal observations
  • Study Helps including Side-Column References, a Concordance and Color Maps
  • Lined Margin Spaces for Journaling
  • The complete text of the New International Version Translation

The NIV LifeConnect Study Bible also includes access to a wealth of digital resources about Biblical discipleship and in-depth Bible study by Dr. Wayne Cordeiro and others for your handheld device. However, I was unable to review these as they were under development at time of my review.

With so many Study Bibles on the market, how do you know if the NIV LifeConnect Study Bible is right for you?

  • The NIV LifeConnect Study Bible is the perfect Study Bible for the person who wants their study notes to be more application-oriented than theologically slanted. It’s also perfect for new to mid-level Bible students – but probably not challenging enough for higher level Bible students.
  • The NIV LifeConnect Study Bible will also interest Bible students involved in inductive Bible studies and those looking for Bibles with spaces to record their personal study notes. This is a good Bible for note-taking.

Although the design of this Bible is very attractive, the combination of small print and colored text may make it difficult for those who are visually challenged to read.

Overall, the NIV LifeConnect Study Bible is a wonderful Bible for the right person and perfect for gift-giving!

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.
