The New Living Translation combines the latest biblical scholarship with a clear, dynamic writing style that communicates God’s Word powerfully to all who hear and read it. It renders the message of the original texts of Scripture into clear, contemporary English that was written to be read aloud. With a focus on clarity, The New Living Translation invites readers to go deeper into the biblical text to discover God’s story for their lives and the world.

What Readers are Saying

  • “The New Living Translation is very readable. Let me add it’s very trustworthy. The scholarship is thorough. . . people understand what it’s saying and therefore they will have an easier time understanding what it means.”

    Pastor Chuck Swindoll

    Evangelical Christian pastor, author, educator, and radio preacher

  • “I opened this book and it was comforting to be able to look at a passage and say, “Yes, I understand.’”


    NLT Reader

  • “I’ve been using the NLT version for years since I was a teenager and I’ve always loved how easy it is to read while still providing depth and life.”


    NLT Reader

  • “The New Living Translation is not only a clearly communicated translation of God’s Word but a powerful tool for ministry in our world today. God’s Word is generally difficult for folks to understand, but the NLT cuts through language and phrasing that often pose a barrier to Gospel communication. Whether it is artistic declaration of God’s Word through Streetlights, public reading while preaching or in depth study with a group of young people, the NLT connects with ‘how we speak’. We have been empowered toward Gospel proclamation, Bible translation and clear Bible teaching through the New Living Translation. What a gift to the Kingdom for our day and age!”
