The New Living Translation is built for understanding.
In fact, the central benefit of the NLT is how uniquely easy it is to understand. People who read it, get it.
This understanding is not because the text of the New Living Translation is simplistic or elementary. Rather, the NLT is well-written—and just like any other well-written book, this makes it is easier for you to follow its logic, engage with its action, and step into its story. In the NLT, a dynamic writing style is combined with contemporary biblical scholarship, resulting in the clear and powerful communication of God’s Word to all who hear and read it.
