Publishers Description The product of over forty Bible scholars and seven years' work, it is the most comprehensive study Bible ever created.

Features include 25,900 study notes (over 820,000 words), maps, charts, illustrations, a word-study system, and much more. Feature details: Ten section introductions provide an overview of the literature and history of each section of the Bible, showing how the books are related to each other and to the rest of Scripture.

Also includes 100 Greek and 100 Hebrew word studies, 100 quotations from modern and ancient writers, and words of Christ in red.

Reviews - What do customers think about NLT2 Study Bible-HC?
Great Bible Jan 30, 2010
The NLT translation is great for understanding the written word. The leather is stiff, but bendable pigskin. Smyth sewn binding is great for durability. Very good bible.
Great Bible Nov 8, 2009
Some of the things I like about the NLT Bible is the large print. This makes it easy to read. I also like all the notes they have included with the Bible, 25,000 to be exact. I could be wrong, but I do not think there is a bible on the market, currently, that has that many notes in it.
The one thing that bothers me about this bible is that the scholars who put it together do not take a strong stand for the rapture of the church. Many times when one reads through the notes, one almost gets the feeling they are coming from a Preterist point of view. This point of view, which is totally unbiblical, does not help the body of Christ. This false and erroneous teaching only brings confusion.
Other than that, great job.
Good Translation, great product. Oct 10, 2009
I bought this Bible for a gift and I am completely satisfied with the product. This is not only a well developed study Bible but book itself is worth the money spent on it.
FINALLY, A QUALITY BINDING Oct 8, 2009
I have to admit, I've been so sickened by the quality of bibles being foisted on the public, that I had about given up. Please, folks, don't buy so-called bonded leather bibles because if you mark in them and actually use them, they fall apart. I'd say in the last year I've gone through about a dozen bibles, some even marketed as genuine leather, but were still cheap, glued together, and printed in Columbia or South Korea or other countries other than the United States. Avoid those products like the plague.
Now, for the NLT bible I just received. First the one negative thing, then on to the good stuff. This is a genuine leather bible, but the quality of the leather leaves a little to be desired. It'll pass, but it could have been a little better.
For the positive features, well. what can I say!! The bible is excellent, and what outweighs the quality of the leather, is that it is SMYTH SEWN. Now I have a bible that will last a life time, and before I bought the bible I emailed Tyndale and asked them about their bible. I told them I was sick of all these foreign printed bibles that are glued together and fall apart almost immediately. The customer service person responded in a short time and went over the features of the NLT bible.
For the first time in over a year, I was not disappointed when the bible arrived. If you like the NLT, don't waste your money on the TuTone, like-leather (it isn't, and lasted about two weeks before the binding came apart), and most certainly DO NOT BUY bonded leather because they are a waste of money. Invest a little more and get quality.
I love the NLT, and the study notes in three columns at the bottom of the page. At least the NLT was honest enough to include the words that were changed, and the passages left out, and put them in the notes.
The modern translations are based, in my humble opinion, on corrupted manuscripts. They use the stuff from Westcott and Hort, and from Nestle and Aland and the United Bible Societies. While I don't believe there was anything nefarious by these people, I believe they should have stayed with the tried and true manuscripts. Yes, some manuscripts were more ancient, but they were ignored for a reason. Those manuscripts don't even agree with each other, and they make over 5,000 changes from the KJV. The OT is fine, it's the NT where the changes occur.
Mark my words, bibles in the near future are going to go back to the Majority Texts, the texts the KJV was based on.
That being said, the NLT reads really well. I have compared it with the NASB (stilted), the NRSV (not bad, but honest by including in the footnotes the changes they made), and NKJV, which keeps what the other translations change, in the main body, but has the aggravating footnotes at the end of practically every chapter saying something like "NU omits this," or "more ancient manuscripts read this," etc. After a thousand or two of those it gets annoying.
When I read the NLT it is so smooth and easy to read. I absolutely love it. Now, when I do my studying and looking up passages, I keep my OT and NT "Word study" volumes by Spiros Zodhiates, ThD handy. If I run across a passage that I think has been changed too much, I write the KJV passage in the margin. That way, I have as accurate a translation you can get. Sorta the best of both worlds.
I truly love the NLT. However, no matter what version you buy make sure of three things: 1. it must be genuine leather. 2. it must be symth sewn, and 3. it must be printed in the United States. I am very experienced with bibles, and take my word for it. If you make sure of those three things, you will have a bible that lasts a lifetime.
NLT STUDY BIBLE, INDEXED EDITION Sep 24, 2009
I OWN EIGHT STUDY BIBLES NONE OF THEM CAN COME CLOSE TO THIS ONE. EVERY VERSE IS MADE TO UNDERSTAND.
