A newly revised version of the trusted Full Life Study Bible, with unique features designed especially for Spirit-filled Christians who prefer the NIV.
This revised edition gives all the practical, application-oriented notes in every book of the Bible, as well as other study helps, just as in the previous Full Life Study Bible. However the notes in this revised edition, now titled Life in the Spirit Study bible, have been updated and expanded. The notes and articles were written and reviewed by pastors and scholars committed to creating a standard by which Spirit-filled Christians can study, preach, and teach. The interior is freshly redesigned, as is the cover.
Features include: Word studies expand on important words Extensive study notes provide verse-by-verse commentary for deeper understanding In-text articles address a wide variety of topics of doctrinal and practical importance "Theme-finder" icons in the margins guide readers to specific topics such as Baptized in/Filled with the Holy Spirit, Gifts of the Spirit, and Healing 16 pages of full-color maps as well as in-text maps Charts uniquely designed for this Bible, such as Old Testament Prophecies Fulfilled in Christ Center-column references Book introductions Subject Index Concordance Bible reading plans Uses the clear, accurate New International Version text 8.8-point type
This study Bible reflects the work of a Pentecostal missionary, the late Donald Stamps. Various other Pentecostal scholars also worked on the study Bible including prestigious scholars such as Dr. Stanley Horton, Dr. French Arrington, and Dr. Robert Shank.
My only complaints against the Full Life is that the notes were written by one man so they are not as plentiful as say the NIV Study Bible. I also would favor a more literal translation such as the NASB or the NKJV then the NIV although I am not opposed to the NIV. The study notes reflect the theology of the classical Pentecostal movement. For a more charismatic study Bible see the Spirit-Filled Study Bible published by Thomas Nelson and edited by Dr. Jack Hayford.
