Yet the...

This is God's WORD!

GREAT BOOK, best ever written. A light for your path and a lamp to your feet. AMG has inserted shading to show God's promises to us, and an excellent helps section in the back that will show how to know Christ personally. AMG great job!

Original bible written in language people actually spoke!

If you own only one version of the bible, it should be the New Living Translation (NLT). If you own more than one version, you should still read the NLT. The bible was originally written in the language that people actually read and spoke, and it should be today. The NLT, read by Mike Kellog, is incredibly well done. I have listened to seven different audio new testaments, and for listening pleasure, the only one that comes close to this version is Alexamder Scourby's reading the KJV. I have NOT heard the NLT read by Stephen Johnston.2000 years ago the bible was written in the language people actually spoke and read. The bible is meant to be understood. This is the only major translation that is written in the language we actually speak. The NIV is much less accessible than the NLT, and that is the second best version, in regards to accuracy and readability, that is presently available. I own all the major translations (KJV, NKJV, NIV, NASB, NRSV, and NLT) and this is by far the best for finding out what the bible says.People who earn livings interpreting the bible and teaching doctrine (radio ministers, pastors, representatives of churches that teach false doctrine), have vested interests in maintaining mystery in the bible. The New Living Translation doesn't require a translator in order to understand the bible. If you attend a bible study other attendees will have KJV, NKJV, NASB, and/or NIV bibles. You will be able to add insight to the study because you will have the version that reads the best and clarifies the text the most accurately. What does the best job telling what the bible says, a radio talk show host, notes written by individuals (including study bible notes), or the bible itself? When an interpreter translates a speech from one language to another, he or she does it the same way as the NLT was translated, not the way the KJV, NKJV, NASB, or even NIV were translated, otherwise the audience won't understand the speech. More false doctrine has been produced by well meaning individuals who never fully understood what the bible says because they relied on archaic translations of the bible such as the KJV, Revised Standard Version, or American Standard Version. Many people, including pastors, refuse to let go of misconceptions they have had since they were children that they developed reading archaic versions of the bible.The NLT is beautifully written, and Mike Kellog does an incredible job reading it. This is THE WAY the bible is supposed to be understood and enjoyed. If you read along you get even more out of it.

An excellent copy of the New Testament

I think the NLT is an excellent translation of the Bible. It is easy to understand and very readable. This copy is remarkably small, yet it contains the entire New Testament along with the Psalms and Proverbs. You could easily slip it into a briefcase or jacket and it would not weigh you down. And it is also very inexpensive. Highly recommended.

The best study Bible I have seen and studied

This has got to be one of the best Bibles for those people who want a better relationship with God. If you really desire to be saved, sanctified, and filled with the Spirit of God, I guarantee you this Bible will give you all the direction you need to live a life devoted to God and empowered by his Holy Spirit.


This book is a real page-turner. The imagery will keep you transfixed, and the numerous "begats" in Genesis are reminiscent of Walt Whitman's cataloging in "Leaves of Grass." I especially liked the part where God roughs up the devil by sending him to hell.
