The New Living Translation is an authoritative Bible translation rendered faithfully into today’s English from the ancient texts by 90 leading Bible scholars. The NLT’s scholarship and clarity breathe life into even the most difficult-to-understand Bible passages—but even more powerful are stories of how people’s lives are changing as the words speak directly to their hearts.
This is a revised version of the New Living Translation, updated in 2004 and 2007 from the first edition published by Tyndale House in 1996. The NLT is based on Kenneth Taylor's popular Living Bible, first published in 1971 (also by Tyndale House). Revisions to the New Living Translation have increased the precision without losing the readability that characterized the first NLT edition.
The principle of dynamic equivalence governs both translations, meaning that the translators are attempting to render the original on a thought-by-thought basis, not necessarily word-by-word. With the New Living Translation on The Bible Study App, you can enjoy reading, searching, and studying this translation wherever you are.
This Bible includes red-letter support for the words of Jesus in the gospels.
