BOOK REVIEW: Life Application Bible Studies - 1 & 2 Thessalonians/Philemon

The Life Application Bible Study series covering 1 & 2 Thessalonians and Philemon is a good study material for the Christian in coming to a better knowledge of these three letters. I really appreciated, and have used, another book written by one of the authors this book whose name is David Veerman. He authored "How To Apply The Bible." While I am not a fan of the "New Living Translation," the method used for biblical application is very helpful. This work seems to take the same approach to not only understanding these three letters, but making the correct application. The lessons in this Bible study would be good for not only for Sunday School/Bible Study Groups, but also very good for personal Bible Study.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Tyndale House Publishers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.” 


  1. An interesting followup to the versions blog. I do appreciate excellent study aids, and compare versions during study, too. This is one of the tools available through e-Sword with side-by-side comparison.

  2. I definitely don't compare versions when reading. The main reason is that the Bible version issue is not an issue on readability, but based on what manuscript it is translated from. Even if something is easier to read, it is not translated from the correct Greek/Hebrew manuscript, and is therefore not the preserved Word of God.

    With this book, I only recommend the study material and the method they use to get their applications.
