I am currently earning points to get this Bible with Tyndale Rewards, so I decided to give a quick review of the NLT. I used to not be very fond of more dynamic Bible translations, but the NLT has always been a bit of an exception. I feel it captures the meaning of the original text rather well in most instances, and it is probably the closest translation (as opposed to paraphrase) to sound like an original English work. So despite some of my concerns about a loss of accuracy with more dynamic translations, the NLT ranks well on my list.
Wife gave me my NLT Slimline/Large print on 12/25/10. Enjoy as study & preaching Bible, but like my regular NLT purchased both have had and have binding problems. front cover/map section loosening up. Thanks, dbg
I love the translation and appreciate the larger font. However, upon opening my newly purchased copy the front cover tore away from the pages. I would be more than willing to pay more for a Bible that will last for a long time.
