Book "Life Application Study Bible Devotional"

About the Book: Readers of the Life Application Study Bible—the #1 bestselling study Bible—will welcome the arrival of the new Life Application Study Bible Devotional. Let the life of Jesus sink into your mind and heart with 312 readings from the gospels—one for each weekday and one for the weekend. In the Life Application Study Bible Devotional: Daily Wisdom from Jesus, each week focuses on a different event in Jesus’ life—drawing out daily wisdom from his parables, teachings, conversations, miracles, and interactions with people. You’ll learn important biblical principles, become inspired to put God’s Word into practical action, and be forever changed by a year spent going deeper with your Savior.

My Review: The writers and editors of Tyndale did a magnificent job selecting 52 main topics on the life of Jesus - to be used one per week during one year - and for each topic creating 6 wonderful studies, one for each work day and one for the weekend during a given week. The ideas are well organized. For each study day we have a "Reading the Word" section containing a passage from the Scriptures, a "Setting the Scene" section, where the passage is explained in details, a "Getting Personal" section with questions for reflection, and a "Talking to God" section, with a guidance for your daily prayer.
Some particular days touched me deeply, like in Week 39, Day 2. Topic is "Jesus Celebrate the Passover" and Passage for the day is Luke 22:14-16. Question to Reflect was "What activities and interests threaten to keep you from finding personal time to spend with God?" That was a knock out.
If you are able to find personal time to spend with God and learn more about the life of Jesus, this is a must have book in your permanent library.
This book was published by Tyndale House Publishers in August 2011 and they were kind enough to send me a copy for reviewing through their blogger book review program.
