A “Lifehack” describes any advice, shortcut, tip or skill that will help you get things done more efficiently and effectively.
The NIV Lifehacks Bible uses “lifehacking” methods to give you practical and achievable tools to integrate spiritual habits into your busy, technology-centric, 21st century life. With 365 articles covering 30 life-changing disciplines, not only does this Bible illuminate scriptural wisdom on spiritual practices, it provides practical tips and strategies for applying them every day.
You’ll find these and other articles inside the Bible: • 4 Tips for Making Wise Decisions • 6 Steps for Interpreting the Bible • 7 Questions for Recognizing Intentional Sins • 4 Tips for Finding Time to Pray
Featuring a foreword by author and theologian Kevin DeYoung, the NIV Lifehacks Bible is full of common-sense articles on foundational topics such as: prayer, self-reflection, character formation, and fasting. The Bible then features advice and helpful tips for building habits around these disciplines.
Visually, the hardcover and personal size makes it easy to carry. The beginning of the Bible, beside the typical table of contents listing the Books of the Bible in order, it also includes a list of the Books of the Bible in alphabetical order, a "Bible in a Year" chart (always love those), and a directory of all articles in alphabetical order. In the back, the "Study Helps" section includes a table of weights & measures (very useful!), the endnotes, a subject index and an index to readings by habit (practical lifehacks). Also, I appreciate the full color maps in the back as well. The fonts are a good size and easy to read. Being the New International Version, it's a widely used version due to its easy to comprehend translations. The pages are so white, with lettering all in black, I almost want to highlight and start marking this Bible up to give it some differentiation for easier read and favorite passages to "pop".
In all, informative and practical, with ways to deepen your knowledge of certain Biblical references, as well as providing tools for spiritual habits that's transformative. If you're stuck or not sure how to apply Biblical principles, check out the NIV Lifehacks Bible. It might be one way to help you.
