The "Life Application Study Bible" includes hundreds of short texts that attempt to connect biblical stories to the lives of modern-day readers, providing a current context for the ancient words. As of 2015, the book is available in several translations, including the King James Version and the New International Version.
In addition to the life-application texts, the book provides character profiles, charts and maps. The book also provides timelines that explain the major events that occurred when each book of the Bible was written. Some versions also include supplements for church workers to help them lead congregations and minister to new believers.
