The New Living Translation is an authoritative version of scripture, rendered faithfully into today’s English by an international team of over 90 leading biblical scholars.
The translation conveys the message of the original texts in clear, contemporary language. Its guiding principle is to render words and phrases as simply and literally as possible when that approach yields an accurate, consistent and natural English text, thus preserving literary devices, metaphors and word choices that give structure and provide meaningful connections between different passages.
