Overview

The Living Bible is a "thought for thought" translation as opposed to a word for word translation. This is a paraphrase. Its purpose, according to the editors, is to say as exactly as possible what the writers of the Scriptures meant, and to say it simply, expanding where necessary for a clear understanding by the modern reader.

    I love Taylor's Paraphrase! As a person that respects and uses more wooden translations every day there is a grammatical flow and pace that TLB brings that is refreshing. Of course, always remember that TLB is just a paraphrase and is NOT the last word any theological discussion! Having said this, if you like a warm and flowing narrative than what the more labored, wooden and myopic texts provide, you may want to take a short term TLB vacation to get that bigger and broader view of the text. It’s like sipping an ice cold tea on a tropical island… :) Enjoy!

    One should always note this is not Scripture, but a paraphrase to assist youth and newcomers, also the basis of the New Living Translation. It is fairly well-known. Thus, from a comparative textual or historical perspective within that context, it has value.

    Though this bible went out of circulation years ago I love its paraphrasing. It gives a fresh perspective on many passages and fills out some of the more obscure passages. As always, pray in the Spirit as He leads you to the intended meaning.

    I recall how excited I was when the Living Bible hit the bookstores back in the 60's. To be able to read God's Word in plain everyday English was so refreshing. I know how the general masses felt when the scriptures were translated from Latin into English.
