NLT Holy Bible: New Living Translation Popular Flexibound Dove Edition (Anglicized)
The translation conveys the message of the original texts in clear, contemporary language. Its guiding principle is to render words and phrases as simply and literally as possible when that approach yields an accurate, consistent and natural English text, thus preserving literary devices, metaphors and word choices that give structure and provide meaningful connections between different passages.
At the same time, the translation adopts a more dynamic approach when the literal English equivalent would be too obscure or archaic for readers to fully understand. The result is a translation that is both exegetically accurate and idiomatically powerful, making it eminently suitable for both private and public use.
‘If you’ve read one Bible translation for some time, I recommend trying the new Anglicised NLT for a refreshing change. It’s an easy read with trusted scholarship supporting it.’
