About the Bible
Grow deeper in your spiritual life with the NIV LifeConnect Study Bible. Dr. Wayne Cordeiro includes articles bringing the truths of the Scriptures to your life today, as well as Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer (SOAP) articles that offer an interactive framework to apply the Word of God to your life. Free digital resources included.
This bible could become an great tool in your hands. Not only would you get the introductions of the books at the beginning of each Bible book but you will also be blessed by numerous LifeConnect articles which were written especially for you in order to grow stronger in your walk with God. Each articles will encourage you to grow, lead and influence others for Christ.
Also included in these pages, you will fin SOAP articles. SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer. This method of bible engagement is well-known to many but in this new bible you will also obtain clear instructions for making the Bible alive for you. As you read each SOAP article, you will be able to apply it better in your own spiritual life. And to make your experience even better, you will find blank journal pages at the end of each books where you will be able to jolt down what have touched you the most during your reading or prayers answered.
While studying a particular book of the bible, you might be interested in writing notes during sermons or during your study time. This is sometimes difficult to do when using a regular bible. However, the NIC LifeConnect Study Bible allows you to do so within the pages of the books because you will find a small margin for journaling (Beware that in the advertisement you might read wide margins but honestly it is about 1/3 of the space providing in a real journaling bible!).
This bible also provides a Through-The-Bible reading plan at the beginning of the book. The text presented is shown on a two columns set-up and the font is easy to read. I have read some of the SOAP articles and honestly they are always straight-forward and hit you right in your heart because there is always something you could apply in your life. Each soap start with a specific scripture and offers some observations based on it. Then you will be stretched in order to apply the teaching in your own life. Finally, you will be offered a prayer in order to allow you to grow in this teaching.
Bottom line, I find this bible would be a great tool for anyone – whether new or older Christian. It will help anyone to grow spiritually. In fact, I find it could be a perfect bible for a youth in your life who might be struggling with some specific things in his/her life. This bible will allow them to grow and mature in their faith.
The NIV LifeConnect Study Bible is available for purchase at your favorite bookstore, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
