Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

You’re holding the Holy Bible, New Living Translation. An authoritative Bible translation, rendered faithfully into today’s English from the ancient texts by 90 leading Bible scholars. The NLT’s scholarship and clarity breathe life into even the most difficult-to-understand Bible passages—but even more powerful are stories of how people’s lives are changing as the words speak directly to their hearts. That’s why we call it ‘‘The Truth Made Clear.’’

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Translation April 1, 2006
Format:Hardcover
I started reading the New Living Translation while working through an upper level course on Greek exegesis. I was simply looking for a version that emphasized a sentence-by-sentence translation as opposed to a word-for-word translation (because I was required to do this type of translating for my assignments). I was pleasantly surprised with the NLT. It is a very impressive work, and makes for very smooth reading. The translation team also made the wise decision to translate the dates in the text into their modern equivalents. So, whereas previous translations might read that a certain event happened in, say, the twelfth year of a certain king, the NLT will (based on historical data) read that it happened in "586 BC" or "on April 22nd, 722 BC" They have also done the same thing with other forms of measurement (including currency, weight, and time). This makes the events seem much easier to relate to.

For these reasons (and others too) I think this is a really good version. So, if you are looking for a translation that focuses more on the overall meaning of each sentence, and not just the meaning of each word, I heartily recommend this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Kindle Version October 1, 2008
Format:Kindle Edition
The NLT is my favorite translation of the Bible. I have paper copies, but, I wanted a version for my Kindle.

Unfortunately, there are two problems with it. The red letter sayings of Jesus are rendered a light gray, almost unreadable. In addition, the Chapter links are not arranged wisely. Making it difficult to navigate to certain sections.

Very disappointed with the rendering. With some minor adjustments by the publisher, this would be an excellent addition to a Kindle library.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Refreshing Edition of the Word May 1, 2007
Format:Hardcover
I find that reading different translations of the Bible helps to keep it "fresh" for me and give me new insights. This NLT is one of my favorite translations for regular reading because it flows so smoothly and I discover new meanings and nuances that I did not realize in reading other versions. The "contemporary" language (things like weights, measures, time, etc.) gives it a modern immediacy that helps me to integrate it into my everyday experience in the secular world.

Several of us at my church use the NLT - and I've noticed that whenever someone reads an NLT aloud in adult Bible class, it seems like at least one other person in the room comments on what a good rendering that was, and asks "what translation is that?"

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version -- what were they thinking? December 31, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am chiming in on the Kindle version's very unfortunate choice of gray lettering for the words of Christ. It really makes reading the gospels a labored experience, trying to discern the gray lettering on the Kindle's light gray screen background.

The obvious decision should have been to make ALL the text black. Some NLT print bibles do just that, so why wasn't that followed?

I do very much like the New Living Translation, a great balance of accuracy and readability in it's dynamic-equivalence approach to translation. It makes for a great reading Bible (versus a more literal study translation).

However, a possible work around for Kindle users is to use the NLT for everything other then the gospels. For the gospels, I would recommend The Voice New Testament, that is also a great readable translation for reading large portions of the bible at one time.

Also, if you own an iPhone, be aware that a free Kindle program is available for it so you can read all your Kindle books. The iPhone renders the words of Christ in red and the white screen background provides great contrast. The iPhone, surprisingly, isn't that bad of an e-reader and may be all you need for a bible study or class. The soon coming iPad also promises to be a great device for this type of problem with it's ability to render color like the iPhone.

Hopefully, Tyndale will get the message. (And while I am at it, I wish the Kindle Bible producers would address the issue of the superscript verse numbering that makes the line spacing very uneven and choppy. As a web designer I know that is an easy fix.)

Update: I now own an iPad and would say, for the Bible, this is the ticket. Olive Tree's NLT app is the answer to all the above mentioned problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars No magnifying glass needed November 13, 2004
Format:Hardcover
Giant print Bibles can be anything from 10 to 14 point font size, so check first before you buy. This is truly in giant print; a 15 point font size! It is very easy to read without magnifying glasses.

The NLT (New Living Translation) is very easy to understand, because it's the English that's spoken today. It does not veer away from the King James version at all, in my opinion.

This Bible is attractively hard-bound, in a creamy color and texture. It resembles a school textbook, rather than the familiar leather that's common in most Bibles.

So whether it's a bookcase Bible, or a Sunday-go-to-meetin' Bible, this will do quite well.
