 New Living Translation

Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

This is the first time I have used forums on Sermon Index.net. I am a staunch defender of the Authorised Version of the Bible and am speaking to a friend at the moment who is reading the New Living Translation version of the bible which I believe is a reprint of the Living Bible which I have been advised was disasterous. I am wondering if anyone who reads this would be able to advise me of any failings that this version has?

God bless

Jeff

 Re:

This one verse should be enough.

King James Version (KJV) New Living Translation (NLT)

20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live ; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

20 I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. So I live my life in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Yeah. The NLT version of Gal.2:20 is more readable.

 Re:

I like the NLT and read it sometimes. It's an easier read for some of my friends here (and myself sometimes) who don't speak English as a first language, but find their own translation a bit difficult to understand. I'm glad to have my NLT with me here.

The question is; How do I now live this life? By me trusting or by the Faith of the Son of God.

very suttle, if the truth is important, this translation should read;

20 I myself no longer live, but Christ lives in me. So I live my life in this earthly body by trusting in (((faith of )))the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

 Re:

I've found the NLT to be a great "dynamic-equivalence" translation, and especially useful when read alongside and consulted by the KJV. I read the NLT very frequently to get wonderful slants on the more obtuse KJV verses, and I often find that it nails the meaning of the verse in the most accurate and understandable way possible. It's a great translation to read from the pulpit when teaching. Zac Poonen uses it unreservedly, and to great anointed effect.

 Re: New Living Translation

I enjoy reading the Psalms and Proverbs from the NLT, it is very helpful.

In Christ,

 Re:

I like the NLT. Readable and understandable. If I wasn't cruising in the NIV I would groove to the NLT.
