I came across this version of the Holy Bible by chance and I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent format and content. It has an interesting and useful introduction for the new Christians or the beginners. My favourite section is the Verse Finder which I have been using everyday to pick out the relevant verse,sometimes for answers and sometimes for pointers and guidance. It is also written in everyday English so it is very easy to understand compared to some other Bibles which have been translated word to word. If you are only going to buy one Bible, I strongly recommend you to consider this version.It will also make a good gift.

The first Bible I read was the King James. In 1965 my mother gave me a copy of Living Letters [the first instalment of The Living Bible]. It opened up the Letters of Paul to me. Despite its Arminian bias, I was confronted with God's sovereignty when I got to Romans 9.
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.

I bought this bible as I was looking for a resource to bring me closer to God. For me it is simpler to read and understand. I am just beginning my walk with God and His word is so very important. The living translation is fantastic. I would recommend it those who are seeking the word of God. I value mine greatly!!

Format: Hardcover
The much anticipated revision of the Living Bible (LB) was just
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.

This translation helped renew the heart of a seminarian who had studied to much for her own good. When I approached this translation with a heart that was growing cold, its accuracy, poetry, and readability were just what the doctor ordered. This translation is meant to be read out loud...works wonderfully for public scripture reading and is excellent for private study. Best Bible for youth out there, hands down.

I have numerous translations of the Bible, but the New Living Translation is unsurpassed for ease of reading, accuracy and beauty of language. The best choice, both for new believers and those who have read "The Book of Books" for many years. You'll love it! Even difficult passages become clear and easy to understand.
