The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible

Hi, my name is Tina and I am a Bible addict. If you’ve read through my reviews you may have noticed that little tidbit already. My recent acquisition is The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible. This is a New King James Version (NKJV) with additional texts from Max Lucado.

The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible, NKJV: Inspirational Applications for Living Your Faith


The lessons in the sidebars have great information and encouragement for interacting with the biblical text. I was reading in Proverbs and was tickled to find a reference to Homer Simpson in the sidebar. The lessons include: Situation, Observation, Inspiration, Application, and Exploration. There are also numerous study pages throughout the book that focus on a specific idea. New believers and old salty ones are all addressed with features and reading plans in the Bible.

If you are a fan of Max Lucado’s work then this is a welcome addition to your library. And if you are not a fan of Max Lucado, it’s worth getting because of the various reading plans and side notes about the text. This bible is one geared towards your spiritual walk more so than an academic approach. The Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible is similar to the Life Application Bible, but with a more enjoyable conversation. My only complaint would be the thinness of the paper. As with most Bibles today, the text is visible through the paper, a small annoyance for such a great addition to the library.

  1. Just noticed this post. My name is Jeff and I'm actually working on this Bible with Thomas Nelson at the moment. If you're interested, we just released a free 365-day mobile app for both iPhone and Android that is based upon the Lucado Life Lessons Study Bible. It's a an awesome little app and a great way to experience this particular Bible.

  2. JustBummin-I downloaded it to my phone, but it seemed to be a little sluggish. And the content was much abbreviated from the Bible. I think people would appreciate more content even if it means having to pay a little. Thanks for dropping by my blog!
