Not understanding what I’m reading

Not understanding what you are reading is often due to the Bible translation being used. Some translations are much harder to understand than others. One of the reasons Word Way recommends the New Living Translation (NLT) Life Application Bible is that it is a Bible which is easy to understand and has notes to help you apply what you read to your own life situations.

If you've tried reading the Bible before and felt lost, try reading the New Living Translation Life Application Bible. Before you begin reading, ask God to help you to understand what you read. And if you find there are still things which are confusing to you, email us at, and together we will try to clear up those things which are puzzling.
