Reading the NLT Study Bible feels like being guided through Scripture by a compassionate Bible teacher.
The NLT Study Bible is broadly and favorably regarded for its accessible and clear translation. It is based on the New Living Translation, which translates whole thoughts instead of words into conversational English—thus making it as forceful for contemporary readers as it was for the first readers. Yet it includes the scholarship of a cross-denominational gathering of biblical authorities: every note and supplement is designed with you, the reader, in mind—to help you experience God’s message clearly, faithfully, and with transformational power.
While other study Bibles emphasize explaining complex meanings of the text, the NLT Study Bible comes in clear, lively language that allows you to consider other issues, such as historical/cultural background and theological implications. Culturally murky terms are translated with immediate understanding in mind. All of this adds a compelling layer of knowing to a text that is already completely, powerfully alive.
