How Do I Apply the Bible to My Life?

Based on the best-selling 17-volume Life Application Commentary series, this single, handy volume holds practical, concise insight on every verse in the New Testament. Now Pastors, Bible teachers, and 
students can get all the useful background information they need, without a lot of obscure facts they don't need. An easy-to-use resource offering clarity of understanding and how the Bible applies to real life.

The Life Application NT Commentary is unique among commentaries, first because it is so readable. Each entry is clear, easy to understand, and full of life-relevant information. You will find practical insights for your life and to and share with others, and profound truths that reveal the dynamic power of God's Word in people's lives today.

Most importantly, the Life Application NT Commentary emphasizes "application." Application begins by knowing the facts—understanding the timeless truths of God's Word—and understanding the Bible's relevance. But application is more than that. Application focuses on the truth of God's Word, shows us what to do about what is being read, and motivates us to respond to what God is teaching. It is the biblical "how to" of life and it is where the Life Application NT Commentary excels.

  • A practical guide for applying the Bible to everyday life
  • Book Introductions discuss the author, date, setting, audience and the main themes of each book with their importance for today.
  • Over 2,500 notes clearly explain every passage in the New Testament
  • Answers the questions most people ask
  • Shows the Scripture's connection to real life

Here's the commentary every Bible student will want and turn to again and again. And it's a terrific value - Over 1,295 pages in print!

Life Application Commentary review (4/18/2023)
Reviewed by (David Hon, Singapore, Singapore, Singapore) - Prior to Life Application commentary, I have been using Life Application Notes for bible study. The latter was succinctly written and i loved it very much. I thought Life Application commentary would extend with more insightful writings. I was disappointed. The key points were mostly similar. Nonetheless, it made a good commentary to start with, although a-bit wordy to me.

Life Application N.T. Com. review (12/20/2019)
Reviewed by (Arlan Mulford, Lonedell, MO, US) - The Life Application N.T. commentary is an extreme helpful study tool. It balances the meaning of the passage with the message of the text to our lives today. Many commentaries are heavy on explaining the text of of scripture but have no practical application. Others are like devotionals but devoid of explaining what the text actually means. The Life Application commentary does both! This is why I recommend it without reservation.

Insightful (8/18/2013)
Reviewed by (Jo Ann Francis, Gainesville, Texas, US) - I have only had this commentary for a few days. I am leading in a study on Nehemiah. The comments on each verse were long enough to glean quite a few ideas. I love the verbiage; you get a glimpse of the old style language, but not too much. I grew up with the KJV and most of my memory verses are remembered in KJV. This commentary has a great mix of old style and modern style language too. Very Nice. There seems to be comments on each verse. Some commentaries do not cover all the verses, for which I don't care. Of course the insight is great, and carries some humor with it too. This book is going to be very high on my resource list

A Must Have (4/13/2013)
Reviewed by (Michael Peyton, Alamogordo, NM, US) - This is a must have for pastors in their library. It has been such a help in preparing sermons and Bible studies. I actually have the entire set of commentaries in my library but when I saw that it was available on E-Sword as well, I had to buy it.

4 stars
Reviewed by (Johan de Bruin, Boksburg, South Africa, Republic of South Africa) - a most helpful Biblical aid at hand. The commentary is "fresh" and opens up a new perspective on subjects. Find it very helpful during sermon preparation as well as during Bible-readings, specially when quick reference is required on a topic.

Life App Review (3/5/2013)
Reviewed by (Jeff Bell, Bakersfield, CA, US) - Another terrific inexpensive commentary that goes well with my other resources. I actually was interested in it's comparison to the Life Application Study Bible and found them, like many others to provide additional or very different perspectives and insight into a verse or section of the Bible. Very happy, would recommend having both...

Review of LANTC & e-Sword (8/7/2012)
Reviewed by (Adela Ellis, Magnolia, TX, US) - I recently purchased the Life Application New Testament Commentary because I was somewhat familiar with the Life Application Bible. Upon opening the commentary, I was very pleasantly surprised at all the information included, not only for the Bible verse selected, but also for the chapter and surrounding verses. The other commentaries are great, but sometimes use an older form of English and may be more difficult to express in a 'teaching' setting. The LANTC, however, uses today's vernacular and is extremely clear in understanding. I love my e-Sword program. I have used other Bible programs, but Rick Meyers has developed the best tool for Bible study available. The recent up-grade which includes audio sermons for many of the verses is too wonderful! The best feature of e-Sword is it's ease to use. I just briefly glanced at the training video and was proficient in no time. Also, should you ever have a question, the technical support responds within 24 hours.

Reviewed by (Randall Forry, Wernersville, PA, US) -

What a wonderful addition to e-Sword. I was already familiar with the hard copy and was elated to see it available on e-Sword. I believe it to be very reliable and understandable commentary. A great study tool. It is amazing to me that all the Bible study tools you offer are so reasonable and easy to download. What an incredible ministry. Praise the Lord for your diligence in continuing to provide the tools to make our Lord and Savior known to all who hunger and thirst for the Word.

l love this book very much. It goes into the depth of the New Testament. It gave me a lot of information to study the N.T. and to understand some verses better and better. This Life Application N.T.Comm. is very precious as Gods Word comes more alive thanks to the commentators who, surely are inspired also by Gods Holy Spirit.

A great modern verse by verse commentary... don't have to read lots before you find your verse! I like the Book intro's too, balanced & up to date scholarship that's relevant to today's lifestyles but unwavering with the truth. Well worth the money. These life applications help you to apply life and faith.

Simply Practical (8/1/2012)
Reviewed by (Stephen Jovanovic, Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand) -

I downloaded this module yesterday, and had a very good look at it. I went through some of the Scriptures with it in areas that I am currently studying, and found the entries to be quite enlightening. The aspect I liked is that its "jargon" free. The language used is easy to read and understand, and so it makes it one of the best and practical commentaries I read.
