At the same time I read Norman Vincent Peale's The Power of Positive Thinking. I found Paul appealing, and Peale appalling!
The New Living Translation is a huge improvement of Ken Taylor's original, because it has been revised by bona fide Bible scholars,such as Don Carson, Craig Blomberg and Willem vanGemeren, some of whom also worked on versions such as the NIV, ESV, etc.
The NLT is reliable and very readable. If you are serious about bible study you will also use versions such as the NIV and NRSV and ESV, because it is beneficial to use a variety of bible versions.
If you are able, studying Greek, Hebrew and Aramiac is the best way to get close to the original bible.
I recommend the NLT as a great place to start your reading of the bible, and a terrific version to use to read large chunks quickly.
recently released. The new revised Bible is being called the New
Living Translation (NLT), advertised as the "publishing event of the
decade." Many who have read and used the LB for personal Bible
study loved its simple and easy-to-read language. However, the LB,
while praised by many, both scholar and laymen alike, for its easy-to-
understand prose, had to be checked against and compared with other
more stricter or literal versions. The LB was noted for containing
errros in certain texts. Kenneth Taylor had used the ASV to produce
the highly readable LB. It is not a literal translation, based on the
original Hebrew and Greek Scriptures, but a paraphrase of the
Scriptures and it tended to reflect some of the views of the
paraphraser and not necessarily what the original writings said.
The LB has become a successful and popular Bible version, with
some 40 million copies printed by 1996. In order to produce a more
accurate translation, based on the original Hebrew and Greek
Scriptures, a group of some 90 Bible scholars got together in 1989
to work on a revision of the LB. Their goal was to create a Bible
translation that is accurate and yet reads like the LB, a paraphrase
of the Bible. Did they achieve their goals? A comparison of the LB
and the NLT will answer that question.
The Tetragrammaton :
One major difference between the LB and the NLT is the complete
removal of the divine name from the NLT.Read more ›
