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.

    Great Reading Bible

    I bought this for my Nook after reading the reviews. It's true that navigation is non-existent for this Bible on the Nook, but I still bought it because I wanted it mainly as a reading Bible and do not plan to jump around an awful lot. Even though there are links in the next (for footnotes or to jump to chapters in books, other links, etc), there is no way to activate those links because the touch screen does not give you the option. Therefore, I have to use the 'Find' feature to search book name and chapter (ex: Genesis 12) and it will take me to the chapter. It works for me.

    This is an excellent translation for reading the Bible through. The translation is meant to "produce in English the closest natural equivalent of the message" and not necessarily a word for word translation. It's not a paraphrase, but leans that way. It's extremely readable, which is why I bought it.

    NIV OK, but NOT for the NOOK

    I would not even give it one star except it is required to rate it.

    This is absolutely the worse eBible in that it takes way too long to open; I'm talking 30-60 minutes! Something is definitely wrong; B&N should correct or offer replacement.

    Try the Quest Study Bible: The Question and Answer Bible (it is not the same as the hardcopy). I downloaded the sample and navigating was pretty easy.

    Need a faster locator arrangement

    Between the electronic reader we are just getting used to and the fast pastor we have -we still struggle to locate sections in a hurry during a mass.

    Great translation but slow

    I've always enjoyed NLT but the Nook application is not responsive to jumping from passage to passage to use in teaching settings. At times touching the book and chapter do not affect a recognition and by the time it does react, it's too late as another passage is called out by the speaker.
