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 (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.
The page encourages the reader to believe in Jesus (great!), then write down that date as their day of salvation, and then, afterwards to repent. Many Christians view repentance as necessary for salvation, but this takes a somewhat narrow denominational view of salvation, of repentance after salvation.
So I might keep the book, but cut out the offending page!
