I was basically without more than a handful of books for the first few years of my Christian life. This was a point in my life where I was beginning to teach several classes each week, and the advantages of these notes was obvious.
I liked the NIV translation as well. I still have this Bible on my desk, even though the cover has long since disintegrated. I have used the NLT for two years now as the Bible I preach from when my audience is primarily high school students.
Denise and I also read from it as one of two Bibles we use in our devotions. Subsequent reading of the NLT every day in devotions with my wife has convinced me that the NLT, despite its use of dynamic equivalency, is an accurate and trustworthy translation, often far surpassing the ESV and NASB in balancing readability and accuracy in my setting.
It provides its many tools for the NLT user, and that is a great and useful contribution. But the tools themselves are impressive.
I do want, however, to mention particular appreciation for several of them. The quality of the scholarly team that has produced the translation and the features is superb.
I was quite pleased to see how many world class scholars lent their gifts and knowledge to this effort. Just as impressive is the broad and diverse denominational background of the team, ensuring there is no particular bias. The user of this Bible can trust the translation and the resources developed by these scholars.
A list of the scholars is available at both NLT web sites.
The notes on the text are excellent. I was immediately impressed that these notes were full of useful information, not overcrowded with trivia. These notes are conspicuously unbiased toward a particular theology, something I have always liked about the NIV Study Bible.
They also help the reader know where translation issues come into play, which is essential with this kind of Bible. These inserts vary from full pages to a few paragraphs, but they are self-contained studies that the student and teacher will find useful. First, the subject index is much like the Thompson topical index, but far more elegant, better organized and useful.
Together, these two resources are impressive. This is an excellent set of tools for the NlT user.
If the NLT is not your translation, there may not be much here to persuade you to change translations, and other study Bibles may contain more resources and content. But for the NLT user who wants a set of study tools to translate into personal growth, teaching, preaching and more knowledge of the Bible, the NLT Study Bible is the obvious choice.Her work appears regularly in the New York Times Book Review, The Paris Review, Bookforum, and The American Scholar, among others.

Without it, the film could be unwatchable. With it, I can't take my eyes away. Not for a second, not for a frame, does his focus relax, and yet it seems. Sun Tzu was a military leader and this book should be taken at face value. In that regard the book is excellent. It pares down the factors of military command into its constituent parts and explains the what, how, and why of winning a military contest.
