NEW LIVING TRANSLATION
"The New Living Translation (NLT) is a translation of the Bible into modern English. Originally starting out as an effort to revise The Living Bible, the project evolved into a new English translation from Hebrew and Greek texts. Some stylistic influences of The Living Bible remained in the first edition (1996), but these are less evident in the second edition (2004, 2007). As of March 2013, the NLT is the third most popular English version of the Bible based on unit sales according to the Christian Booksellers Association."
The NLT translation team was made up of 90 translators form a variety of denominations. They tried to translate the original texts simply and literally while using a "dynamic equivalence synergy approach" to convey the thoughts behind passages when a literal translation may have been difficult to understand or even misleading to modern readers.
he New Living Translation is considered a paraphrase, but does not vary wildly like The Message and its mother, The Living Bible. It is recommended for those looking for a fairly accurate translation in the most modern English possible. The NLT gets a score of 6.3 for reading difficulty.
