I have several Bibles in a few different translations. I have a Bible for study, one for reading, and a few for translation comparison. Like most of you, I even have one on my phone. The Life Essentials Interactive Study Bible very different from any Bible I own. It is the perfect study Bible for the collection of anyone interested in an interactive study experience.

Life Essentials Interactive Study Bible #LifeEssentialsL3


This Bible is a useful tool that would be a handy addition to any Bible student’s library. The interactive features are basically like having a Bible teacher available to answer your questions. I think newer believers and younger Bible students might find this feature highly useful. However, always be sure to go to more than one resource to help you understand passages you struggle with.

I am giving away two copies of this Bible. One will ship from the publisher and the other will be a local winner who will receive my review copy. Winners will be drawn May 2, and will have 24 hours to respond. USA and 18+ only.

The winners have been contacted. Congrats to Becca and Judi.

  1. I would like to win because I am embarrassed by the condition of my Bible. Plus you know sometimes you read stuff and you just want to learn more. I would like the idea of digging deeper. Thank you

  2. This would be SUCH a great resource for our homeschooling! We’ve read the the Bible in a year. (Phew!) Now it’s time for deeper study.

  3. The CSB version sounds like a great translation for family bible time! Definitely a great possibility for supplementing Homeschool. I’d love a chance to see what this bible could add to our devotions.

  4. Becca C says

    This is something I think would help with homeschooling my oldest, and something we can use as a whole family when studying.

  5. Tina Garrett says

    The fact that the CSB version is both accurate and easy to read makes me excited to see all the different ways we can incorporate this bible into family learning! Definitely a great possibility for enrichment in our homeschooling.
