The truths of Scripture can transform your life
A flinty blade poised over a young man’s heart—a heavenly command preventing the knife’s deadly descent—the drama of Abraham and Isaac is one of the Bible’s best beloved stories. But what is its relevance for you? How do you apply this ancient account to your life today? What do you have in common with men and women who lived thousands of years ago in agrarian cultures that were vastly different than today’s world of computers and freeways and towering city skylines? When you read about the building of the temple in Israel or what Jesus had to say to the Pharisees about the laws of Israel, what timeless principles can you apply to your life?
Turn to the Life Application Study Bible. Its wealth of study aids helps you translate scriptural truths into practical action. You’ll find hundreds of application notes filled with insights for godly living. Character sketches help you learn from the strengths and accomplishments, weaknesses and mistakes of key Bible characters from Aaron to Zerubbabel. A dictionary-concordance enables you to research important words and concepts. Thorough book introductions and timelines offer an overview of key concepts and help you put the biblical narrative into perspective.
NASB translation description:
In the mid-20th century, The Lockman Foundation saw the need for a new translation based upon the values that inspired the revered American Standard Version (ASV). Employing the same exacting word-for-word approach as the ASV, a world-class team of conservative translators and scholars drew on the strengths of its predecessor and on new Hebrew and Greek textual sources to produce an all-new translation. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) was released in its entirety in 1971, and was updated in 1995 to render it more understandable to modern-English readers. It is recognized as today's most accurate word-for-word translation.
