    The NLT Mosaic bible is a beautiful themed bible, combining Christian artwork from the world as well as relevant devotionals. What makes this devotional bible unique from other devotional bibles is that high quality full color art and photos are integrated into each devotional theme. The devotionals on thick presentation paper is in the first section of the front of the bible rather than incorporated into the text. This bible is a hybrid between a work of art and a devotional bible. There is a stark contrast between the thich devotional pages in the fron and the tissue thin bible paper in used for the actual bible portion. This is not a study bible, but simply makes a unique devotional bible.

    Very Interesting

    This was an interesting new way to view the Bible. This BIBLE is more for devotions and teachings, study, and the like. But even those who are not into a deep study of the Bible, will find this one a very interesting look and a Bible they'll enjoy reading and pulling out. It's easy to read and teaches many new things. I truy enjoy having this Bible in my home and would recommend it for others.

    A study Bible for those who crave variety.

    The Mosaic Holy Bible makes a lovely addition to any Bible student's collection. The variety offered in each week's study is a rich highlight.

    "Epiphany, Week 6," for example, is focused on Seeking and Saving. Under that umbrella we have numerous scripture readings, accompanied by a Chinese painting depicting The Parable of the Lost Son; a short message about joyful evangelism; another (by Dan Kimball) cautioning us against isolationism; an excellent application devotional by Jay Blevins; a short teaching by Greek theologian Athanasius of Alexandria; an applicable quote by Richard Baxter of 17th Century England; a prayer by Sir Francis Drake; and a place for the student to write in "Reflection."

    This is the perfect Bible for the student who struggles to stay with studies that become rote. Mosaic brings the reader something new every day.

    Beautiful Bible

    The cover itself is already a work of art featuring a cross mosaic in front. The Apostle's Creed is featured on its back cover. The first part of the book is the Mosaic Weekly Devotions, the second part is the Bible itself in New Living Translation. Here is a more detailed description of the Bible.

    The way I see it, The Holy Bible Mosaic is actually two books in one cover. In fact, the publishers have clearly separated it by using a different paper for the Weekly Devotions and the Bible. The paper for weekly devotions are the kind that you can easily write on. The paper used for the Bible is the tissue type paper - its the usual kind of paper that I see Bibles printed on.

    It's the first time I have read an NLT Bible. It's a surprise for me because it is so easy to read. I can compare it to reading a fiction book where the words are simple and the writing is easy to understand. I appreciate it. I appreciate the fact that I have my Bible and my guide for weekly reading in one book. It's also good to have a theme for each week fusing my Bible reading together for the week.

    The Holy Bible Mosaic team of editors wanted to show that all of our lives is part of a mosaic. A mosaic that will all come together to show the beauty of the work of God in each of our lives. No matter that all of us come from different parts of the world and diverse circumstances, each one of us is a tesserae in God's mosaic.

    An ideal Bible for devotional study that does not detract from the Biblical text

    I was very excited to receive a copy of The Mosaic Bible from the folks at Tyndale House, because I had great hopes for this devotional and study Bible.

    The Mosaic Bible starts with the excellent NLT text, which is good both for private study and public reading. It builds on that good foundation by keeping the study and devotional notes separate from the Biblical text. Instead of breaking up the flow of the text, thus suggesting that they are almost part of it, the notes and meditations are placed in the front of the Bible and then crossreferenced from the text.

    Of almost equal importance is the variety of materials included. The claim of the preface is that this Bible is intended ". to provide a way to encounter Christ on every continent and in every cenury of Christian history." And it does precisely that. We have readings ranging from the 1 Clement and the Didache to writers of today, and they come from different tradition streams as well as different parts of the world.

    The obvious approach to this Bible is either liturgical or devotional. Follow the Christian year with this Bible, do the readings, and watch your devotional life grow, or alternatively, use them in church liturgy. With the crossreferences, however, you can choose instead to follow your own plan of reading, and use this Bible as a supplement.

    The only drawbacks I see are simply inevitable consequences of book design. No study Bible can cover everything. This Bible is devotional. Don't look for technical articles. The print is also relatively small, though not extremely so, which is necessary to keep the volume to a reasonable size.

    Overall, I give this Bible five out of five stars, and thank Tyndale House for the opportunity to review it.

    Holy Bible: Mosaic NLT

    I wanted to learn more about the Holy Bible: Mosaic NLT so I signed up for the tour. I was unfamiliar with the New Living Translation, since I mostly use the King James Version and the NKJV Bibles. I come with an open mind and heart to further my knowledge of God's Word.


    About NLT

    The New Living Translation, was first published in 1996. There have been several updates with the goal of creating easy-to-read, understandable text, conveying the meaning and content of the ancient Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek to aid the contemporary English readers. This version is recommended for Bible study, devotional reading and for reading aloud in worship services.


    My Thoughts

    I am not a theological student or professional Bible scholar, and I know little about "formal-equivalence" and "dynamic equivalence translations," but I do know that the NLT has been created to relay a contemporary English text so that you and I can more easily understand God's Word. I have found the Mosaic to be beautifully written and well thought out. I applaud each and every member on the Bible Translation Team for doing such a great job.

    The Mosaic has many wonderful features such as hymns, poems, prayers, etc. all ranging from ancient past time lines. You can learn more about the NLT in the introduction. I believe the Mosaic will be helpful in my daily walk with Christ, as I reflect on God's Word.
