Tyndale’s NLT Catholic Readers Edition is an NLT with deuterocanonical books and is approved by the Catholic Church for reading and study. It includes the official Imprimatur, meaning it is officially licensed by the Roman Catholic Church. In this review I’m looking at the hard cover edition, ISBN: 9781496414014, printed in Italy. Tyndale provided this Bible free for review. I was not required to give a positive review, only an honest one. All opinions are my own. _________________________________________________________ This book is available at (includes some affiliate links) Amazon Books-A-Million Barnes & Noble and many local Bible bookstores _________________________________________________________ COVER AND BINDING This is the hard cover...Read More
One of the first reader’s editions in modern Bible publishing was the NIV Books of the Bible. This Bible helped start the reader’s edition trend by removing chapter and verse numbers and pointing out the value of a reader’s edition while showing problems of modern day Bible design. Zondervan’s NIV Sola Scriptura brings the NIV Books of the Bible to the next level by producing it in a new setting as a 4-volume set with even fewer distractions. In this review we’ll take a look at this 4 volume set, ISBN: 9780310448129, made in China, and compare it to several other reader’s...Read More
In my opinion the reader’s Bible trend is one of the most important trends in the Bible publishing industry because it gives readers access to the Word of God without man’s additions distracting the reader. Zondervan has entered the Reader’s Bible trend with the NIV Reader’s Bible. This edition has the high-quality design that we’ve come to expect in reader’s editions and a few additional features that sets it apart from the rest. This is the only real reader’s edition that retains the translator’s footnotes, but it still keeps them away from the text to create a nice readable layout....Read More
Crossway’s ESV Reader’s Letters of Paul is a reader’s edition of Paul’s 13 New Testament letters. This is a new setting of those letters in a single volume without distractions such as chapter and verse numbers, and section headings. Paul’s letters had such an impact on the Reformation that this volume was produced to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. _________________________________ Buy from Amazon ISBN: 9781433557965 _________________________________ Cover and Binding This edition is cloth over board. The cloth is tan, or maybe oatmeal, with multiple shades of color and a textured feel. The spine has ESV printed vertically, and...Read More
I love reading multiple translations of the Bible. I like seeing how translators with different backgrounds and educations bring ancient texts into modern languages. Often differences in translation give me insight into original meaning and strengthen my beliefs so I was interested in reading The New Living Message Bible. I knew it was at least part paraphrase (which should be thought of more as commentary than the Word of God) but I wanted to like it. Unfortunately I don’t. The Holy Bible – New Living Message Version (NLMV) is marketed as “compassionate Scripture for the modern world” and as...Read More
