My take on this Bible
The NIV Life connect Study Bible is an easy to use study Bible that also has lined margins and blank journal  pages making note taking easier. The blank pages are lined and have a heading which includes date, title, page, the bottom of the page asks the question, how will I be different today because of what I have just read. There are some other features with this Bible that really stood out for me including life connect articles that are intended to help believers grow stronger in their faith. There are also SOAP articles, and soap stands for scripture, observation, application, and prayer. The blank journaling page seems to follow each soap article as well as appearing after each book of the Bible. Speaking of books, each book of the Bible opens with an extensive introduction, and users can expect to find bottom of the page notes along with reference along the outer pages The study notes aren't extensive as the other study Bibles that I own but they are ok. There is the standard concordance and maps included in the back of the book, along with a Bible reading plan. . I think one of my favorite things has to be that this is a red letter edition, something that I always enjoy. One thing that is lacking with this Bible is a presentation page, something that I normally look for when giving a Bible as a gift. The print was big enough for me. When you purchase this Bible it includes access to a wealth of digital resources. Overall if you're looking for a study Bible this one might be for you, especially if you're looking for one with lined margins. A good Bible for everyday use.

A complimentary copy of this Bible was provided for review.
