Reviews - What do customers think about NLT2 Personal Edition-Black/Onyx TuTone?
Packer Fan Feb 13, 2007
It is the perfect size and the print is nice and large. It has beautiful colors and is complete with a concordance and 16 pages of maps. The NLT version is a clear easy to understand version. I took it to my church and the other kids liked it also. I would strongly reccomend this great bible. God Bless,
A Wonderful Modern Translation Aug 19, 2006
At a recent Believer's Convention, Gloria Copeland, who I have most often heard read from the KJV or Amplified Bibles, said that she finds the New Living Translation very illuminating, so on that recommendation, I bought this lovely edition for myself. There is a grace and flow to the words, and it is a superb modern language translation.
This edition is compact (it measures about the height and width of my hand with my fingers slightly apart), but is quite weighty for its size, and the print is excellent, and very readable for a Bible this small; in fact, I read it next to the large print edition in the bookstore, and preferred the paper quality and print of this edition. The words of Jesus are in red, it has a ribbon marker, gold edging, and the 1558 pages listed include a dictionary/concordance, a Where Can I Find It? page, and a 4 page list with book/chapter/verse of the Great Stories of the Bible. Added to this are a presentation page, a Special Memories page, and a Favorite Verses page, as well as an introduction on how the translation was made, and 16 pages of maps.
My edition has its TuTone in cardinal red and "alligator" cream colored bonded leather, with stitching along the seams, and is very attractive as well as durably made. I am really thrilled with my purchase of this Bible. Translation comparisons for 2 Corinthians 10:13: NLT: "But we will not boast of authority we do not have. Our goal is to stay within the boundaries of God's plan for us, and this plan includes our working there with you." KJV: "But we will not boast of things without our measure, but according to the measure of the rule which God hath distributed to us, a measure to reach even unto you." Amplified: "We, on the other hand, will not boast beyond our legitimate province and proper limit, but will keep within the limits (of our commission which) God has allotted us as our measuring line and which reaches and includes even you."

Holy Bible: New Living Translation Feb 27, 2006
I really like it as it is compact bible with larger print for easy reading and not too bulky. It is young-looking style for young people. It also is easy to carry it in your purse.
