You may need to make some changes!
JAMES ANDREW YODER
I love the King James Version and wanted to see how this NLT translation (evolved out of their previous Living Bible paraphrase) read side by side with it.
R. White
I recommend this book to anyone wanting to get a great Bible!

The best of both worlds. The beauty of the Authorised Version with the accuracy and easy-comprehension of the NLT. The presentation is also nice; a royal purple cover with high-quality tan endpapers. Words of Christ are in red. A wonderful bible for educated persons who love the literary quality of the AV, but worry about inaccuracies or changes in language.

I like having the KJV and the NLT side-by-side! I get the understanding of Modern Day English along with the time tested Authorized Version and it really brings out LIGHT on many issues. I recommend this Bible to everyone who desires to do serious Bible study.

The comaprison of the two texts on the page is wonderful. I believe the King James Version is the best for intensive bible study and The Living Bible is more readable and up-to-date in the language of our day.Check out the Love chapter I Corinthians 13:4-6 Living Bible "Love is vry patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude. Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable or touchy. It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices when truth wins out." I usually notice when others do me wrong....how about you?

Having lived overseas as a missionary for a good part of the past 20 years and having realized that God speaks in other languages besides English, it is a real treat to find an English version of the Bible that is written in the language that we use every day. The only cautions I have are: 1]- This Bible speaks real plain. It will probably touch some ares of your life that you have kept your conscience quiet on. You may need to make some changes! So if you are comfortable with your knowledge of God and your relationship with Him ... and don't want to be disturbed - this is not for you. 2]- Keep your King James Bible to compare.
God Bless, James Yoder

Unfortunately the ever present paranoia of authenticity within the different translations of the Holy Scriptures will not only prove erroneous, but self depriving of the fullness of God's grace. Seeking the most genuine and authentic translation of the Scriptures is an impossible task and certainly not what Holy Scriptures wants us to do regardless of translation. God's promise of the Holy Spirit to those who receive Jesus; leading us to ALL TRUTH is the ultimate protection against the error of human translation or interpretation. Christians not having faith in this infallible plan leave themselves at the mercy of such paranoia, and worse yet indirectly not trusting in God's sovereign power to lead us to the Truth if we are sincerely seeking it (Him). We must remember that it is God's will and power that is sovereign to "reveal" the truth, and not mere print in a book. The "paraphrasing" of Scriptures in the NLT is necessary for the times, and in no way radically alters the important doctrine set forth by previous translations, which we so dearly embrace as true Christians. The bottom line is that the NLT is an execellent source to develop one's relationship and understanding of their Creator, thus may we all continue to glory on with joy, love, peace and fulfillment in the name of Jesus Christ; Lord & Savior of all who believe.
"Not by might nor by power, but by my SPIRIT, says the LORD ALMIGHTY." Zechariah 4:6

This is a very good way to have comparisons at hand, especially when doing a bible study or group discussion. My only suggestion would be to have the print a little larger. Thanks.

This bible has both the King James Version and the New Living Translation side by side on each page. I wanted a modern sounding Bible, but I grew up with the King James Version, so this is absolutely the Bible for me! It allows you to go back and forth and get clarification from old English words. You grammar and language nerds will love it!

Awesome Bible. The best of both worlds with traditional KJV and modern NLT, which makes the Word literally come alive! The only thing missing is red letters. Even without them, it is the best Bible I have ever owned, by a long shot.
