New Living Translation (NLT)


The Translation:

The creators of the New Living Translation (NLT) Bible set out to create a modern translation that has the same impact of the text that the original Greek and Hebrew texts had on readers and listeners.

What Sets It Apart:

The creators of the NLT translated entire thoughts and concepts into modern language that is easy to read while conveying the same meaning as written in the original text. This translation differs from other texts in that it does not translate word for word, but in a conceptual fashion.


Tyndale House Publishers published the NLT in 1996.
