Format: Bonded Leather
First, to set the record straight: This is a review of the New Living Translation (NLT) Bible, Personal Edition, Black Bonded Leather, ISBN: 0842354484 . Some of the reviews for different Bible products have been lumped together and somehow caused confusion.
This Bible is nearly perfect in terms of "packaging": compact, light, beautiful, and yet the typeface is amazingly readable. It is not much bigger than the palm of your hand, but its print/font is clear and easy on your eyes by any standard, complimented with adequate line spacing. It is even much more readable than most of the regular-sized Bibles that I own by other publishers.
Not everyone I've shown this Bible to is a fan of the New Living Translation, but they all love this Bible for the above stated reasons. It is a beauty inside and out AND it is practical and useful - now that combination is a rarity.
Now, unto the translation itself: I have studied most of the major translations available (NIV, NASB, KJV, NKJV, NRSV, ESV, NLT, and HCSB) and found that each translation has its strengths and weaknesses. Personally, I love the NLT translation and for now use it as a supplement to my study of the other versions. I find its writing style beautiful and the rendition inspirational ,even though the language is thoroughly contemporary. If I can someday find enough reasons to use it as my primary Bible, I will do so.

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.

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: Paperback
I have been a born-again Christian for over 30 years. I have tried for all of these years to read the King James version and the Living Bible. Neither one was able to break the scriptures down into a language I could truly understand. Now I can! I can finally understand God's word, His wonderful message! Not only do I find this translation understandable but also fasinating! I can barely put it down. I am amazed at how much of the New Testament I have read in such a short time. This version holds my attention and keep me yearning for more.
So much of what I have heard in sermons and been taught in Sunday School over the years finally come together for me.
I am very careful when someone talks about what God has to say. Too many put their own twist on the Word to suit their purpose instead of using the Word as it is intended. I have cross checked The New Living Translation with the King James version and I find the NLT to be very accurate. So does my Pastor!
This version will fire you up for Jesus! Imagine Gods pleasure that in this day and age we can understand His will on our own. No other interpretation is needed.
This is a "must have" for all Believers in Christ.
