I am always reading this. When the year ends, I just begin again. God is the most important part of my life. Without Him there is nothing.
I grew up reading the King James Version ("KJV") of the Bible. A few years ago I laughed at modern Bible translations. "They don't even come close to the historic and poetic language of the KJV," I would argue.

That was until I actually picked up the New Living Translation ("NLT") and read the whole thing. It was refreshing! I could actually understand the Bible! I especially enjoyed the NLT's thought-for-thought translation. This is important because many phrases used in Hebrew hundreds of year

Okay, this book will never leave my "currently reading" list at all. This book, the Bible, is a book that I need each day ~ without it I cannot live life. It is the breathe of God and bread of my life, without it, I am lost!!
i love the fresh, modern language of this version. The Word comes alive for me :) i'm studying the book of philippians at the moment and although short, it is packed from beginning to end with spiritual food. my favorite passage today, and one i've been meditating on is, " are holy and blameless as you stand before God, without a single fault. But you must continue to believe this truth and stand firmly in it." How many times do we try to earn God's love and favor by our own works and good ...more
I loved the chronological sorting of the historical accounts! As someone who has read through the Bible 10 times or more, this approach gave me new insights into the different viewpoints and therefore the writers themselves (and, of course, the Author), when there are two or more accounts of the same subject matter. The Kings of Judah and Israel have often fascinated me and this Bible version will help me immensely on my Excel chart of them (yes, I know that's really nerdy!). The Gospels display ...more
I do have to say, the language in this New Living Translation feels a little trying-to-hard at times. The message is the same, but in the translators attempt to be hip it comes off a bit silly in it's wording. I'd probably have preferred NIV or NAS, but it was a gift and it's still God's word and a great discipline, encouragement and reminder of His truths each day.
Read it in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009 and again in 2010. Fantastic way to keep daily focus. Might try a different translati
Though I am continually studying the Bible, I have read through it actually twice, both times it was with this translation. First time was when the first edition came out and the second time was with the current or second edition. This is not paraphrased but an English translation from Hebrew and Greek texts. This translation is contemporary, stylish and acutely accurate. Elements such as weights and measures, money, dates and times etc. are described in modern terms, Some phrases are translated ...more
There are bibles and there is bibles that are different from the rest.

If you like devotionals as I do but like the two-in-one kind. Then In His Image devotional bible is the answer.

Tyndale is best known for their bibles and devotionals. I have two of the ONE YEAR devotionals. Each new bible that this book publisher comes out tends to be always unique, there are specialty bibles meant for kids, teenagers, for Moms, for busy dads.

So what is this bible for, what sets it apart from the other bibles
I got this book in the Kindle version. This worked perfectly for me as I was able to finish reading through the entire Bible, in Chronological order, in a year. The NLT is a good compromise between being easy to read, but still accurate. Reading the Bible in chronological order was very helpful at times, for example when David sinned, the reader then can immediately read his Psalm about his repentance.

I started this in 1998, and haven't stopped. How can I when its mercies are new every morning? Each consecutive reading, I see something that I wasn't mature enough to understand the year before. I recommend this as the start of your day with an empty journal and enough ink to respond. It will change your life!
Jason Lilly
An accurate and understandable translation of the New Testament. This is one of the best translations out there, easy to read and very compelling.
Johnny Mcclean
Reading it on my iBooks for my quiet time and family readings. Refreshing for my soul, food for thought fresh every day.

I've been trying to slowly read through book by book. I'm following a plan that my Church put together, but I'm doing it on my own timing instead of sticking to a certain schedule. I'll keep a brief record below of my reading:

Genesis - Awesome from start to finish. Reading the stories of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were a huge encouragement to me!

Exodus - Surprisingly interesting. I thought I would get bored with all the details about the tabernacle, but I found it fascinating and humbling to thin
Before I start telling you why I don't like this book, let me make it clear that I am not another of the ever numerous atheists who have the Bible shelved under fantasy, fiction, or alternative history. I am a Christian, and I do like the Bible, I just didn't enjoy the New Living Translation. It was a chore to read, the writing was boring, and I always found myself having something better to do than read it. I got a King James Version recently, and I find myself opening it to read a random passa ...more
Starting with the cover, the first thing that I notice is a nice calming water, with a tree blossoming forth. Then in a light grey there are words across the middle that pretty much name it all... "faithful...just...holy...good...merciful...righteous...loving..." The next thing that I notice is the size, this hardcover Bible is right about the same size as a regular trade paperback book and provides a familiar feeling to my hands. "In His Image". What could be a more appropriate topic for devoti ...more
I thought I would try the New Living Translation just to infuse a bit of freshness into my devotional life. No freshness here, just short, choppy sentences which lack beauty and grandeur. Give me a NKJV, a KJV, a NASB, or an ESV any day over this translation. Maybe if I were a poor reader, this one would work. Temporarily. I can't imagine staying in it for a whole year.

The One Year Bible is available in other translations as well, but I really prefer to use a simple chart to read through the Bib

My goal is to read all the way through this year! 4 days into it!

Well, let's just say it took me waaay longer than one year!! :/ But, it was so neat to read through the Bible chronologically! I feel like I have a much more complete understanding of the Bible than before. Time to start over again!
Jason Jackson
This is my first experience with the NLT, and I absolutely loved it. I normally study in the ESV, but I have found this version extremely readable. The chronological format breaks up some of the sections that are difficult to get through, and makes the journey of reading the Bible through much easier.
Jessica Moniz
I think that by having sections such as questions from other christians, new ideas to put into practice, real life stories, and more just adds a more personal touch and is very engaging. :)

It doesn't matter however many times you read it the word is as fresh as the first time. Class...
The only book I've ever read that also read me.

2012 Reading Resolution: I'm doing the chronological reading plan on to read the Bible in the year. I'm using the New International Version after a minimal amount of research*, and reading a bit of Albert Barnes' notes on verses that strike my curiosity.

I'm also using a pamphlet called "Friendly Bible Study" by Joanne and Larry Spears as a guide for reading. It has a set of questions to keep in mind while reading:

1-What is the author's main point (and possible biases)?

2-What new lig

If you are looking for a user-friendly, kid-friendly, or even child-like adult-friendly readable bible, this is the one for you.

With vibrant colors and full of features, The Hands-on Bible is wonderful for children.

There are so many useful features and all geared to address a child's way of learning. Features such as Character Bios, Time lines, Crafts, Experiments, and Fun Facts.

I found the 'Jesus Connection' feature to be the best. It is a short feature that ties the story or book back to Jesus

From Tyndale House comes a new Bible specifically designed for those recovering from addiction of any kind. Based on the 12 step model, this Bible can be used by anyone needed support or encouragement as they learn to trust God using His Word in battling addiction.

The 12 step model that is generally associated with addiction to drugs or alcohol, but this model can be used for a variety of addictive behavior patterns. Woven into The Life Recovery Bible NLT are key areas that can assist anyone who
The Life Recovery Bible is indeed a very interesting Bible. It is not your normal study Bible. This is a Bible that is set up to help folks who are struggling against addictions and bad habits. The Bible text is the New Living Translation and is saturated with notes and articles.
The Life Recovery Bible is set up with notes on Scriptures just as any other study Bible is. What makes it unique is the fact that the notes are specifically slanted (for lack of a better word) toward helping a person fi
If you’re like many of my friends, you probably made a new year’s resolution to read through the Bible in a year. While I hope the majority of you have made good on your resolution thus far, inevitably some of you are struggling or may have stopped doing it all together. When it comes to disciplines like reading our Bible each day and prayer, our minds are only too ready to help us come up with many excuses why we didn’t get to it yesterday, won’t be able to do it today, and what it is that will ...more
When it comes to Bibles, I’m not a purist. I have 15 different kinds by my bedside right now, and even more shelved away. I love the poetic grandness of the King James just as much as the gritty earthiness of the Message. I use the ones with the theological annotations just as much as the ones with loose personal interpretations. I love Bibles. Period. So when I heard of Tyndale’s latest one, I was excited about getting a copy to review.

I was excited, not just because I was going to add another

The Bible is a difficult book to review.

After all, it is the Bible, which carries a LOT of baggage. As the sacred scripture of over 1 billion people, its impact on the lives and minds of those who view it as The Book is difficult for a secular reader to appreciate fully. Moreover its influence on two thousand years of human history and culture cannot be overstated. That said, it is not really a book for general reading, nor was it ever intended to be. It is hard to consider it a book at all; it

This tween Bible for girls is so cute and very feminine. Pink with stars and flowers with sparkles. And since it is NLT (New Living Translation) it is very easy to read and understand. Also, if your girl has a smartphone (or a phone with this app) it has those square pixel things for them to take a picture and it takes them to a link with a message, activity or video to watch. Very interactive for the tween girl. There are pink pages throughout this Bible with questions, help, and advice. My per ...more
