In 1988, a group of young editors and youth pastors were charged with creating a first-of-its-kind study Bible in a joint venture between Tyndale House Publishers and Youth for Christ.
Their project? A Bible that in just one volume included notes, explanations, and other resources to enable a reader to better understand the spiritual truths in the Scripture text and how to apply them to everyday experiences.
What began as a first draft scribbled on index cards became the Life Application Study Bible (LASB) which, to date, has sold more than 20 million copies in the US alone, making it the #1–selling study Bible in history.
More than three decades later, the original group of editors who shaped the first edition of the LASB have returned to the project, collaborating with a next-generation team including many female editors to produce the Life Application Study Bible, Third Edition, which will be available on October 1.
Some 76 people contributed to the third edition of the LASB, which introduces the most revisions, updates, and additions in nearly two decades. While retaining the core timeless content, it is substantially different from earlier editions.
All the feature content was closely reviewed, and significant changes were made to most of the study and application notes, book introductions, profiles, charts, and maps. The comprehensive rewrite of the features was done to reflect how people speak and write today.
