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!

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.
