The New Living Translation (NLT) is a Bible that is easy for modern day readers to understand without sacrificing accuracy, and it contains notes to help make Scripture relevant to life situations. It is a translation that is especially good for those who are just becoming familiar with the Bible, but it is also appreciated by people who have read and studied the Bible for many years. It is not a paraphrased Bible but a translation from the original Hebrew and Greek texts which is written in modern language syntax.
