I've been using this NLT version for a number of years. I've started giving it as a gift to friends who have trouble reading the bible through. My husband is on his second copy. I've started getting this for youth @ my church to encourage them to read. I'm planning on getting a case soon.
The index shows page numbers for the books but there are no actual numbers on the pages themselves. I got this Bible for my sister along with tabs to help her find the books as she follows along with messages, it's a next to impossible feat. While I understand it is designed as daily reading in chronological order, the index should reflect the context more accurately, or the pages should be numbered or tabbed. Very disappointed!
When I saw that this type of bible existed I thought, "what a great way to read through the bible!" Since I have received it I read it one to two time a day! Easy to read and understand. I have always struggled to get throught the entire bible but now look forward to reading daily!
I love the NLT for my personal study...I use HCSB at church because it is used in parallel in our "Quarterly's" with KJV which is the version our pastor preaches from. I have many other version bibles in my home as well as a great computer Bible program "Wordsearch 9" which makes many versions available to me.
This is the first time I have studied from a Chronological Bible and I really love it!!!>>>Dick
