I purchased my first copy of the NLT Bible on DVD about 6 years ago. I use it everyday to read through the Bible every year. My husband and I now have the same work schedules, so we read and listen to the Bible every day while eating breakfast and before going to work. It's an excellent way to stay in the Word together as a family!
We had not read the NLT before and it is an interesting translation, especially in this format.
We have been using it every night to go through 3 chapters. Occasionally we might add on an extra chapter or two if the chapters were short. It takes about 10 to 20 minutes every night and has been a real blessing.
We started perhaps 8 or 9 months ago and have not missed a day. We started at Genesis 1 and are currently in Mark. Great way for a couple or family to read through the entire Bible together.
The narration is well done, and having the text on the screen as you go along has been very handy. In some stories there is character narration with other voices, and sometimes background sounds.
Overall very satisfied. Once we finish, we might try a different translation and go all the way through again.
There are other products with other translations, so if the NLT isn't your cup of tea, I would suggest getting a different one and just work your way through the Bible this way.
Many times people have a great goal in mind to read through the Bible in a year or whatever. We have found that as a couple, this is a great way to work through the Book of Books together. Depending on the age of the children, this would also be great for a family.
Of course, we still read and study the Bible in the morning as part of our Quiet Time, but this product is very handy for the 'quick overview' by making sure we also read through the entire Bible at night time.
