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

“The Everyday matters Bible for Women” has a beautifully designed cover. The cheerful, colorful design is sure to be any ladies delight. In comparison to the normal black leather Bible we all love and appreciate, it’s appearance is sure to be an attraction for many young women.

An accurate and understandable translation of the New Testament. This is one of the best translations out there, easy to read and very compelling.
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

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!

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

This Bible is written in the New Living Translation (NLT) which makes it very simple to understand. There are also footnotes at the bottom of the pages to help clarify passages even more. Also within the books and chapters, you will find articles to help us understand how these stories still apply to us today. For me this not only helps in understanding the message but also allows the stories to become more real and help me achieve the connection I am looking for.

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.

The Holy Bible: Mosaic NLT, recently released by the folks at Tyndale, is unlike any other Bible I’ve seen. It’s not a study bible. There are no notes in the text of the scriptures (aside from footnotes and cross-references to accompany the New Living Translation text – more on that in a minute). In fact, they went so far as to completely separate the scriptures out from the “Meditations” material, even using different types of paper to distinguish them further. I really appreciate this approach ...more

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
Isn’t this a beauty? While God’s Word doesn’t have to be covered in a pretty wrapping – it sure makes picking it up and reading more enjoyable – especially when one thinks that God’s Word is wrapped up just for you.

I had recently been searching for a new Bible specifically geared towards women in the New Living Translation and found the Everyday Matters Bible for Women.

Not only is it beautiful, but it features twenty-four disciplines with additional content from Christian leaders (Sally Clarkson, Holley Gerth, Nancy Ortberg, Priscilla Shirer, Joni Eareckson Tada, Kay Warren, Sheila Walsh, Ann Voskamp, and many more) to help understand and apply these disciplines.

Tyndale House Publishers took a nostalgic, creative step in March 2012 to release their new Bible, The Way. Originally published in the '70s Tyndale's editors decided to revive the coolness, updated for today's culture.

Using new writing via the New Living Translation, incorporating first hand, life reality stories with relevant b/w photos, they followed in the radical steps of the original - moving from from text only to text illustrated with graphics and commentary.

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".

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

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed both the NLT translation AND reading the entire Bible chronologically. The translation is very readable, and I rarely stopped to look up a verse in another version for "accuracy." One does get the feeling of a translation and not a paraphrase. The chronological order is especially enlightening with the Major and minor prophets inserted into their appropriate spot in the historical books. I also found it interesting to read the Gospels "synoptically".

It's a good, readable translation. Not being a Bible scholar or a fluent reader of Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek, I can't speak to its accuracy, but the quality of its prose is good. So good, in fact, that it's the first Bible translation I've been able to read through.

It utterly failed to change my mind vis-a-vis the existence of the Abrahamic god and its worthiness to be worshipped, but that's no fault of the translators. :P

This is a very readable translation of the Bible.

I like this dynamic-equivalence translation which "focuses on translating the message of the original-language text."
Reading through this translation this year gave me a slightly different slant to the Scriptures in an almost subconscious way. I understand that these translators have made different interpretive decisions that were slightly different than other translators of other Bibles.

Five stars seems inadequate for the Bible, doesn't it? I read the entire Bible from January 1 to April 14 of this year. Yes, it was supposed to be 90 days. It took me 104. For some reason I got very lazy once we got into the New Testament. Perhaps just the time of life and parenting I am in right now, but I will take the blame on myself.

“Romans 14 The Danger of Criticism 1 Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong. 2 For instance, one person believes it’s all right to eat anything. But another believer with a sensitive conscience will eat only vegetables. 3 Those who feel free to eat anything must not look down on those who don’t. And those who don’t eat certain foods must not condemn those who do, for God has accepted them. 4 Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants? Their own master will judge whether they stand or fall. And with the Lord’s help, they will stand and receive his approval. 5 In the same way, some think one day is more holy than another day, while others think every day is alike. You should each be fully convinced that whichever day you choose is acceptable. 6 Those who worship the Lord on a special day do it to honor him. Those who eat any kind of food do so to honor the Lord, since they give thanks to God before eating. And those who refuse to eat certain foods also want to please the Lord and give thanks to God. 7 For we don’t live for ourselves or die for ourselves. 8 If we live, it’s to honor the Lord. And if we die, it’s to honor the Lord. So whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. 9 Christ died and rose again for this very purpose—to be Lord both of the living and of the dead. 10 So why do you condemn another believer[*]? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For the Scriptures say,    “‘As surely as I live,’ says the LORD,    ‘every knee will bend to me,        and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.[*]’” 12 Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. 13 So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall. 14 I know and am convinced on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong. 15 And if another believer is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don’t let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died. 16 Then you will not be criticized for doing something you believe is good. 17 For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too. 19 So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up. 20 Don’t tear apart the work of God over what you eat. Remember, all foods are acceptable, but it is wrong to eat something if it makes another person stumble. 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything else if it might cause another believer to stumble.[*] 22 You may believe there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and God. Blessed are those who don’t feel guilty for doing something they have decided is right. 23 But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning.[*]” 1 likes
