About the New Living Translation (NLT)
The New Living Translation was first published in 1996 by Tyndale House, and is based on the principle of “dynamic equivalence”, whereby the biblical text is translated according to overall sense and meaning rather than word-for-word. The aim is to express the biblical text in such a way that it will make the same impact on its contemporary readers as on its original audience. Accordingly, the English of the NLT is that of everyday speech, making this version exceptionally vivid, engaging, and easy-to-read. It is not a paraphrase, but a genuine translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic texts, guided by best practice in contemporary translation scholarship.
