Many different translations of the Bible were considered for this volume. The New Living Translation was chosen because it is the easiest-to-understand, accurate translation available. First published in 1996, the New Living Translation is the work of 90 Bible scholars over a seven-year period. It is the fastest growing Bible translation and is expected to become the standard for the Christian church for the next century.
Read what The Book has to say about itself:

  • Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
  • All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
  • For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are. Hebrews 4:12
  • The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. Isaiah 55:10-11

This book is the Bible bur broken down into a little more of a comprehensive wording with guidelines for different areas of need in one's everyday life. I really love this book and highly recommend it to everyone who is in need of a Bible and answers on how to live their every day lives. It also makes a great gift of all occassions for the young, mature and in between.

MANY YEARS AGO, WHILE IN A BOOKSTORE ON THE ¿BIBLE¿ AISLE I WAS AWESTRUCK. THERE WERE SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM. DIFFERENT LANGUAGES, DIFFERENT STYLES, DIFFERENT TYPES.

AFTER PICKING UP ALL THE ONES THAT HAD THE THEE¿S AND THOU¿S, THUS AND SUCH, I WAS OVERWHELMED AND CONFUSED.

THEN I PICKED UP "THE BOOK," OPENED IT AND IMMEDIATELY FELT GRATEFUL TO WHOEVER HAD PUT THIS VERSION DOWN ON PAPER.

AT THE TIME I WAS JUST BECOMING FAMILIAR WITH MY SAVIOUR; A BABY JUST TAKING MY FIRST FEW TENTATIVE STEPS TOWARD MY FATHER GOD, MY LORD JESUS, AND THE BLESSED HOLY SPIRIT.

WHAT A WONDERFUL JOURNEY IT HAS BEEN.

I CRIED OUT TO GOD ON AUGUST THE 6TH OF 1999, DEMANDING, LIKE A THREE YEAR OLD THROWING A TANTRUM, THAT HE HAD TO LET ME KNOW THAT MY FATHER, WHO HAD DIED FOUR MONTHS EARLIER, WAS ¿OKAY.¿

WELL, WITHIN 10 SECONDS I WAS GIVEN MY FIRST MIRACLE, AND MY HEAVENLY DADDY DIDN¿T STOP WITH ONE, I GOT ANOTHER ONE WITHIN AN HOUR. TWO MIRACLES IN PHYSICAL FORMS THAT WOULD LET ME KNOW FOR ALL TIME THAT THERE IS A GOOD AND LOVING GOD, NEVER TO DOUBT HIM OR HIS LOVE.

I NOW REALIZE HOW BLESSED I WAS. SOME PEOPLE PRAY YEARS FOR MIRACLES TO HAPPEN. I GUESS HE JUST SAW MY INTERMOST SELF AND KNEW THAT I GREATLY NEEDED IT, AND SO HE GAVE IT.

I HAVE HAD MANY MORE SINCE THE TWO OF THAT DAY LONG AGO. GOD DELIGHTS IN MIRACLES; I DELIGHT IN THE HOLINESS OF MY LORD. I HAVE FOUND THAT YOU CAN HAVE INTERACTION WITH HIM ALL DAY LONG, HE ABIDES IN ME AS THE HOLY SPIRIT, AND HE LIVES IN MY HEART.

THAT HE ANSWERS SOME PRAYS EVEN IF THEY ARE SILLY, I LAUGH WITH JOY IN THE THINGS HE HAS DONE FOR ME. I HAVE FOUND HIM SO LOVING, AND SO GIVING¿I COULD GO ON AND ON WITH THINGS HE HAS DONE FOR ME. WHAT LOVE CAN EVER BE MORE, THAN THE LOVE OF HIS GRACE¿?

ANYWAY TO CONCLUDE¿"THE BOOK" HAS BEEN HERE FOR ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. IT HAS ANSWERED QUESTIONS FOR ME; IT HAS PROVOKED ME TO DWELL DEEPER INTO THE WORD TO LEARN EVEN MORE, ALWAYS MORE.

THANK YOU,
PAMELA

I have this book in paperback form. And that is what I am honestly basing my review on....It is a great bible to be honest and very easy to read. The language is 20th centuary. I would love the hardcover because it would be perfect for me. I live in a rainy climate and I would love to follow along in church.

Having owned my copy for just over a year now, it is the only version of the Bible that I keep going back to. Other versions that I have are 'nice' but not very reader friendly.
