I purchased this particular bible based upon "Power for Living"'s praise for the New Living Translation, and the other reviewer who said I'd be glad I bought it in less than a month. They're both right. I'm sorry to say I had never sat down and read the Bible at any great length until now (at age 51). Now I've read most of the New Testament, and plan to finish the whole Book within a year. The "Daily Walk" introductions for the various pieces are very informative and well done. I think anyone who gets this version will be well-pleased.

If you have never succeeded in reading through the Bible, this is the Book for you. The notes are clear and brief. The time needed for each day's reading is short and the Word readily comes alive in this format. The New Living is an easy to understand translation, even when you're tired. You will be challenged to maturity and given tools to help get you there. This a fantastic format for easy daily reading (although I'd recommend beginning in the New Testement if you are new to the Bible). You'll be glad you made this purchase before the first month is over.
