The Modern Life Study Bible Connects Modern Believers to God's Word





Is the Bible still relevant in our modern world?

Publisher Thomas Nelson turns to full color, high design to reconnect God’s Word to our world


 NASHVILLE, Tenn. – According to a recent survey about stress in America, money, relationship and work-related issues are the most common sources of adult stress. Amidst chaos of what makes up the modern age, it becomes easy for today’s Christians to get wrapped up in these basic struggles and feel disconnected from the world of the Bible. So while modern-day believers may be harried by constant digital connection, they could be reminded that challenges such as money, relationships and work parallel those struggles of biblical characters, over 2,000 years ago.


Guiding today’s Christians to connect the past and present, Thomas Nelson announces their newest Bible, The Modern Life Study BibleGod’s Word for Our World  (Thomas Nelson Publishing, January 21, 2014), which explores the timeless truths that relate the people and stories of the Bible to the opportunities and demands everyday people face today.


"The Modern Life Study Bible helps today’s believers connect to the world of the Bible by examining God’s character and how others have put biblical truths to work," says Robert Sanford, vice president and associate publisher at Thomas Nelson. "Through inspirational biographies, thousands of articles, beautiful, full-color illustrations, and more, The Modern Life Study Bible helps readers understand and embrace what it means to follow Christ in today’s world."


Written in the New King James Version, The Modern Life Study Bible helps modern-day believers apply biblical principles to everyday life in areas such as family, church, community and work. It aims to help Christians understand what it means to be members of God’s kingdom as well as citizens of a global village.


The Modern Life Study Bible is designed for Christians who consider the Bible to be central to their life and worldview. Using historical context and fresh insights backed by biblical scholars, this Bible has highly-designed contemporary resources that will engage, encourage and enlighten followers of Christ each day.
