Never have I owned a Bible that had me reading chapters and whole books at a time! The readability of the NlT is wonderful. It is easy to understand yet still feels true to its time period. The study aids and notes are interesting and relevant without being too detailed and clinical. I can't recommend this Bible enough!!
I bought this Bible for my daughter today. She was baptized yesterday, and this was my gift to her. This is the bible her preacher uses in church, and she really likes it. She is mentally challenged, and she says it is really easy to understand.
I find that since I received my new NLT Study Bible-Indexed, that I understand the Good News and from where and whom it was written. It answers all the questions I had concerning the books of the bible and their authors.
Why would the people who was behind the NLT Study Bible allow false doctrine to be included behind the bible. It has a Catholic article saying that we need other material which is authoritative like scripture to understand scripture. Behind the Study Bible a Catholic theologian said that we need the Catechism to interpret the Bible. This is what the catechism teaches for example: 460 The Word became flesh to make us "partakers of the
78"For this is why the
Word became man, and the Son of God became the Son
of man: so that man, by entering into
communion with the Word and thus receiving divine s
onship, might become a son of God."
79"For the Son of God became man so that we might become God."
80"The only-begotten Son of
God, wanting to make us sharers in his divinity, as
sumed our nature, so that he, made man, might
make men gods."
Has you can see above how Satanic that is.
The NLT as false doctrine in back of it. It's titled "Introduction to the time after the Apostles". Read under the section "SCRIPTURE AND TRADITION" . Basically it says that you need the Catholic Tradition to understand the Bible and and is as authoritative as the Bible. Now, that's false doctrine.
