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.’’

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.

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.

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?"

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.

There's no other bible like it on earth! This bible breaks every single scripture down for clear and concise understanding. It totally reads like a book and it's so difficult for me to put it down. I love it! I highly recommend this bible to all who are ready to accept the knowledge within. This bible is a true blessing!

This review is from: Holy Bible New Living Translation Red Letter Large Print (Hardcover)
As a young reader of The Bible, the NIV was really hard to understand and I found myself falling asleep reading, and getting nothing out of it. This little handy Bible is just amazing, it is written in an almost today language, it totally opened my eyes and mind to God's word. This Bible totally changed the way I feel about reading it DAILY! I love this little Bible, it's compact, easy to use and bring with you everywhere, it has a beautiful red and alligator leather bound cover, and it's gorgeous with it's gold pages. As for the stuck pages, all I had to do was bend the Bible pages one way then another and WHIOLLA in two quick seconds the beautiful gold paged Bible was ready to use, no need to separate one by one. It was no big deal, really! Yes, there is a slight transparency to the pages but you only see it where there is no lettering between chapters and paragraphs, I have two other Bibles and they are both the same exact way. Again, no biggie comparing to my eyes being open to the word of God in such a tremendous way. :)

I would recommend this product to anyone, in fact I told my husband he needs one!
