    This review was written for NLT Study Bible, Bonded Leather--Burgundy.
    I hope I don't give the wrong idea with my summary header "Mixed Review".

    Let me explain. This Bible is a quality product beautifully bound, with a hardy attractive cover and gold guilt page edges. I researched the Bible versions extensively before choosing the NLT. I wanted to be sure whatever version I chose would be as true to the original manuscripts as possible. I believe the NLT is. I enjoy the NLT version because it gives me a new perspective on the Scripture that I have read in the past in the KJV and NIV. I was raised on the KJV and although the old English is sometimes difficult to relate to and understand I do miss the poetic flow of many of the Psalms and other very lovely Scripture passages in the KJV. This was my same issue with the NIV and it would most likely not be an issue for most other people. The only other issue I have with the NLT besides the loss of the poetic flow of the text is that I would like to have more commentary in the foot notes for the various passages. My old Bible was a "Life Application Study Bible" and I found some of the footnotes there helpful. The "NLT Study Bible" has footnotes and some commentary but just not as much. I will say that the information before each book talking about the author of that book and the setting of the writing is great and very helpful in understanding and applying the teaching in that book. Those just starting out studying the Bible might find the NLT to be a real help in that it really puts the text in a way that is more easily understandable to us today. My old Bible was underlined and notated all over. I chose not to transfer any of that but rather to approach my reading with fresh and "uninfluenced" eyes and heart. I'm finding this to be a good experience.

    All in all I am happy with this Bible and with the fast, good service, as well as the best pricing I was able to find from ChristianBooks.com. Hope this review helps someone.

    The print was not as large as i thought it would be. Other than that it's a great bible with lots of explinations. It's great for me to read becuase it allows me to understand it better.

    This translation is not true to the word of God

    I purchased this to give as a gift. Seeing that it was (supposedly) an updated version of The Living Bible, I thought it would be good starter version for a teenager. This is a completely rewritten version and is not the word of God. The ribbon opened to Amos 2:6-8, topic: Judgment on Israel. The lower half of the page was a study guide on the topic, titled (in very large font), "Social Justice."

    In Amos 2:6-8, the original "meek" is now "the oppressed;" "drink the wine of the condemned" is now "they drink wine bought with 'unjust fines;' " and the original, "they lay themselves down on clothes laid to pledge by every altar," became "At their religious festivals, they lounge in clothing their debtors put up as security."

    For those who are not familiar with the King James Version, New King James, American Standard or the Catholic Douay-Rheims version, "Social Justice" is not the Word of God. Justice comes from God. We are commanded to personally treat others as we want to be treated; we are to love our neighbors as ourselves. We are not to judge. There is nothing collective about it. RUN from this version!
