Introduction to the NLT Study Bible
In the Introduction, there is a NLT Study Bible Features Guide. There is also a six page Master Timeline which covers the historical period from creation to approximately AD 330. The timeline is quite detailed and gives an overview of what was happening during the periods covered by books of the Bible. Not only does it list the Kings of Israel and Judah, but it also covers the kings of Assyria, Babylonia, Media-Persia and Rome.

The introduction also includes a list of NLT Study Bible Contributors. I'm no scholar and my library is limited, but several names managed to catch my eye: Daniel Block, Tremper Longman III, John Oswalt, Grant Osborne, Robert Stein, Mark Strauss, Douglas Moo, Sean Harrison and Philip Comfort.

Book and Section Introductions
The book introductions cover the usual Setting, Summary, Authorship, Setting and Date information to be found in most Study Bibles. There are several features of the Book Introductions which stood out to me as special. Each book introduction includes a map showing the geographic region covered in the book. There is a timeline for each book.

As in most Study Bibles, there is an Outline. The NLT Study Bible takes the Outline a step or two further than most in that it is a running outline. I have found this to be a very helpful feature. To quote from the Features Guide:

"Each book includes an outline with up to three levels of headings. In the introduction, we provide the first level of the outline to give the reader an overview. The full outline is embedded in the NLT text as running headings."

The Book Introductions also include a Further Reading section which has book recommendations for further study.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This Bible is so easy to understand. I have much experience with the NIV, TNIV, RSV, ESV, Message, KJV, JB, etc and this one is BY FAR, the easiest to understand. There are three types of Bibles out there: Word-for-Word translations (KJV, ESV, etc) , Thought-for-Thought translations(NIV, TNIV, NLT, etc) and Paraphrase translations (Message, JB, etc). WFW translations are typically sturdy or slanted in their usage of language. Just as we have phrases like "he has fallen asleep forever" (i. e. "died"), so is the Bible full of such things and using a WFW translation makes things like that difficult to understand. Since it was written thousands of years ago, we don't understand their common phrases. TFT translations try to communicate the actual thought that was communicated, but they do consider the actual words (Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic) used. Lastly, Paraphrases basically just communicate the primary idea of the text and sometimes don't give much attention to the original language. With that said, in my opinion, it is best to have a Bible in between the WFW and TFT section. The NLT is just that. It's easy to understand and you can connect it to the original languages. This bible is so handy. The introductions to the books are fantastic. They tell the reader the who, what, when, where and why in detail (which is crucial to understanding). The study notes are good and the diagrams and maps are very helpful. One of my favorite features of this book is that in the back, it outlines 100 OT and 100 NT words. Actually, it is as if the writers did a mini word study for you. I am using this Bible in my youth ministry of 6-12th grade students. It is easy for them to understand, but it also provides great opportunity to growth. Lastly, I use this Bible in my own personal study. I am a Christian College graduate and I am currently working on my Master's in General Bible and this is my BIble of choice.

Format: Leather Bound Verified Purchase
I bought this NLT Study Bible in 3 different bindings -- a black leather bound, a tutone brown, and a tutone black. The black leather bible NLT Study Bible (Bible Nlt) looks nice but the cardboard backing is flimsy and very easily creased. However, it includes 2 ribbon bookmarks which is a nice touch. The tutone bindings (brown NLT Study Bible, TuTone (Bible Nlt) or black NLT Study Bible, TuTone (Bible Nlt)) feel more substantial -- very soft and luxurious to hold in your hands. However, the tutone bibles only have 1 ribbon bookmark. It seems a little strange that different (premium) bindings have different # of ribbons.

On another note, make sure you buy the "indexed" versions of these books. Study bibles like these are big (2500+ pages) so having the thumb index is indespensible to quickly jump to the section you want. It's only a few dollars more for the indexed versions. All the product links mentioned in this review point to "indexed" versions.

Format: Hardcover
I was hesitant to purchase the NLT Study Bible after earlier this year buying the NLT "Discover God" Study Bible--also published by Tyndale. I debated whether or not to get it but checked out their website and was convinced. I am not only not disappointed, I am very pleased with this work.

The NLT is a very readable translation (yes, it is a translation, not a paraphrase). Many Bibles now have the annoying single column, like a book, but the NLT Study Bible has its Biblical text in two columns and the study notes in three columns. To further separate the words of God from the words of man, a different font is used--looks like serif font in the text and a sans-serif in the notes. There are "insets" with helpful sketches of characters (like Eli), people groups (like the Philistines), or things (like the Ark of the Covenant).

The hardback version is well constructed, readable, and has excellent, practical, and helpful study notes. It has a dictionary/concordance in the back which is a small step above the standard concordance. There are color maps in the back but the text and graphics throughout the Bible are all single color, though quite understandable.

The book intros are good without getting bogged down in trivia and even gives a "further reading" list.

I own the "NIV Study Bible", the "Reformation Study Bible" (ESV translation), the "Apologetics Study Bible" (HCSB), the Ryrie Study Bible (NAS), and the "Discover God" (NLT) study Bible. Of these, the "NLT Study Bible" is my new favorite. If you're looking for a readable translation, helpful study notes, and a well-thought-out design, this would be a great addition to your library.
