The Holy Bible, New Living Translation, was first published in 1996. It quickly became one of the most popular Bible translations in the English-speaking world. While the NLT’s influence was rapidly growing, the Bible Translation Committee determined that an additional investment in scholarly review and text refinement could make it even better. So shortly after its initial publication, the committee began an eight-year process with the purpose of increasing the level of the NLT’s precision without sacrificing its easy-to-understand quality. This second-generation text was completed in 2004 and is reflected in this edition of the New Living Translation.

The goal of any Bible translation is to convey the meaning and content of the ancient Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts as accurately as possible to contemporary readers. The challenge for our translators was to create a text that would communicate as clearly and powerfully to today’s readers as the original texts did to readers and listeners in the ancient biblical world. The resulting translation is easy to read and understand, while also accurately communicating the meaning and content of the original biblical texts. The NLT is a general-purpose text especially good for study, devotional reading, and to be read aloud in public worship.

We believe that the New Living Translation—which combines the latest biblical scholarship with a clear, dynamic writing style—will communicate God’s word powerfully to all who read it. We publish it with the prayer that God will use it to speak his timeless truth to the church and the world in a fresh, new way.

    Is this the most up to date version of the NLT? My e-sword edition says 2015 but the Logos edition says 2013. Has Logos updated the text to 2015 or is it still the 2013 text?

    The NLT is a dynamic equivalent translation on steroids. Yes, it is easy to understand and in today's language. However, this work should not be used for primary study as it is closer to a paraphrase than a translation.

    I sure wish TYNDALE would apply for a Catholic "Nihil OnStar & Imprimatur" for the NLT-CE" because if they did a good portion of the worlds 1+ billion Catholics would start reading this version of the Bible. I have a hardbound copy of the NLT Catholic Edition (NLT-CE ) and find it a wonderful translation especially for devotional use.
