I am impressed by the quality of this translation. It is clear and gives the meaning of the text in good, flowing modern English. I plan to use it to read through various passages to see if I get any new insights into the text. I used the NLT version of the 23rd Psalm at a funeral service and was a bit concerned that it would not have the impact of the KJV translation, buy in fact it made the Psalm more understandable to many listeners because of its "fresh" yet accurate language.

Don't buy

As others have said the navigation does not work properly. Chapters don't load, and pages take forever to render at times.

    Very Disappointed

    I download this for use at church since we use the NLT in my church. I was very disappointed in the slow and difficult navigation. Might be okay for reading at home, but much to slow to be user friendly in my opinion. I read the reviews before I bought and shame on me for not listening to the reviewers.

    2004 edition

    Wait for the 2007 edition to be made available; this version is too liberally over-translated; most of those errors were corrected in the 2007

    Frustrating when the pages gets stuck....

    My pages get stuck and could not flip back and forth books and chapters. Otherwise the version is great.

    very slow

    navigation is painfully slow. I could take a nap during a search! font is ok but old style. I like the NLT better than other translations but the software needs updating.

    Ok, with limits

    I can open this on my Nook. It is a bit cumbersome to write notes. I have tried mutliple times to open on my Blackberry with the eReader and have never been able to get a chapter to open.

    Great Translation / Terrible ebook

    I bought this book for my Nook. I love the New Living Translation. It is simple to read and understand.

    The ebook is very slow or will not open. My workaround is to view the detail and then press read. This is the only way I can get the book open to read.
