LOVE the NLT... great as a devotional Bible. I use it alongside other translations because it gives a different "feel" to scriptures. It is easy to read and is especially great for young children to begin with. LOVE IT!
I like this bible because it has just about everything you need. It is pretty much a stay at home Bible for me though. I have found that it is quite bulky and heavy. I much prefer my app on my mobile phone for church and for small group meetings. When I want to study scripture at home this Bible is an invaluable resource, the readability and ease of use make the NLT simply an awesome Bible.
This study Bible is the best one I have ever used. The authenticity and expertise of the contributing authors is beyond reproach. The expertise of the contributing scholars lends itself to almost the original texts from which the material is taken. I only wish I had discovered this study Bible earlier and I could have been using it. It surely makes preparation for classes and sermons so much easier and would be the perfect gift for anyone. The online access is outstanding and is for a lifetime.
I am LOVING this Bible!! Honestly the NIV is my favorite as a single translation... but personally, I like to have like 4 different translations available for comparative study and the NLT is hands down the next in line... very easy to read - and with all the study notes and other interesting features, this Bible is a beautiful addition to ANYBODY'S study! I could not be more delighted with it! GET IT, GET IT, GET IT!!... or better yet, GIVE IT, GIVE IT, GIVE IT!!! ;-)
