Review: John (from the Life Application Bible Studies)

Thanks to Tyndale for this review copy of John (LABS). Book uses NLT.

This book has multiple parts. Before you get to the Bible study, which starts on page 63, there are several sections that help you get get the most from an “application” study as well as a section introducing the NLT.There are time allotments for 60 and 90 minute studies.

Pages 3-62 are the book of John from the NLT with notes making this a one stop Bible study.

There are 13 chapters, and each chapter has sections labeled:

  • Reflect on your life
  • Read the passage
  • Realize the principle
  • Respond to the message
  • Resolve to take action
  • More for studying other themes in this section

Nice, compact Bible study.

I would have liked to have had this book last year when I was teaching the Life of Christ to teens. Some of the questions were excellent, like In what ways does God prune a fruitful believer? What kind of pruning experience have you had over the past few months? (p107) Or What changes might you make in your life to reflect more clearly Christ’s divine authority over your life? (p83) All in all, this is a very good little study. I think it would be much, much better as a group study verses individual.
