This NLT helps me understand what is written in a clearer way. Sometime, Paul's writings can be confusing and this NLT helps with making the writing clearer. The study notes make me think about what is being said. Really like the extra information.
I cannot say enough good things about this Bible! It's so easy to understand and relate to in the modern English. No more struggling just to understand the words -- least of all the meaning! This is my favorite Bible and I will treasure it forever. I hear God speak through it often when I take the time to read (listen) it. It's a joy to read because the meaning is FINALLY so clear. God bless the publishers of this translation (and those who worked so hard at the translation). We who receive it are truly grateful. From the heart...
Last week I wrote a disappointed review of the ebook version of this study Bible. I should have just paid the small amount extra to get this the first time around. Fortunately, CBD's customer service is excellent and I now have the paperback version of the NLT Study Bible. I'm so glad I do. There is so much wonderful information here: maps, historical background notes, explanations of cultural practices, word studies. The NLT translation is very readable, yet much care was taken to make the translation accurate. If your goal is to understand the Bible in the context it was originally revealed to humanity, I highly recommend this study Bible.
I was very disappointed that it had no red lettering in it. When we made the purchase I read about this Bible and it said red lettering....when we recieved it there are no red lettering for Gods words. Very disappointed in this Bible.
