Instead, this is a review of this particular translation of the Bible. From the introduction it seems this particular translation was the result of a desire to make concepts This review casts no aspersions on the Bible itself - definitely a five-star work, amazing, exceptional, best book ever written, compelling, and all that.

From the introduction it seems this particular translation was the result of a desire to make concepts more clear and explainable in a mission context: to non-European or non-Western readers. But what seems to be simplified are basic word concepts. Sentence structure is somewhat simplified, more in the New Testament than the Old. Speaking of such, it is clear this was originally a New Testament translation with a later Old Testament translation appended to it. Reading through from Old to New becomes a jarring experience because the level of simplification is so much greater in the New than the Old.

Occasionally the simplification really succeeds and the full primary thrust of the passage really gets to you. Unfortunately, I had more moments where the simplification seemed to me to just make the text more clunky at best, and sometimes slightly misleading at worst.

Prophets, for instance, don't always tell the future - they're just telling God's message for the people, and it's mostly rooted in the present, not the future. As with all such translations, to convey the primary meaning in a simplified form demands that secondary and tertiary nuances and flavors get completely missed or steamrolled over. If it really helps out in the mission fields, I guess I can't complain much, but overall I do have to wonder about the value of endeavors such as these.

It's not like place names or personal names are simplified, and in my experience, the learning curve for the novice Bible reader is made much worse by these rather than the use of "prophet" or "prostitute. Also, it's based on the Majority text and all of its challenges, and includes the Comma Johannem.

I have no idea. Another strike against it. If you as a reader are operating with a very limited vocabulary, or are working with a group of people with a limited vocabulary, this version might help. Otherwise, it's not even that helpful as a dynamic equivalence, to be honest. View all 3 comments. Jul 07, Markus rated it it was amazing.

I just finished reading through the Bible again. I try to read different versions from time to time to keep things fresh. And this was a different version. It was originally developed for people who struggle with the English language. So it has a 'limited vocabulary of about words, not including proper names.

I found the word choices very interesting. I was surprised how often "sex sins" I just finished reading through the Bible again. I was surprised how often new life version sins" were mentioned in this translation. Maybe because I often read aloud to my baby daughter I wondered if they used the word too frequently as a universal word. So I checked the homosexuality scriptures in the New Testament easy to find by googling " what other words they might be replacing.

I was curious afterwards if they'd used it as a global word for homosexuality. The New King James says this, 1 Corinthians 9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals,[a] nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. The New Life Version says this Do not be fooled. A person who does sex sins, or who worships false gods, or who is not faithful in marriage, or men who act like women, or people who do sex sins with their own sex, will have no place in the holy nation of God.

You can see how it quickly can make the Bible a whole lot longer because it takes big words and sort of explains them. This came to some pretty odd word choices. My favorite one was in Revelation 6, where the rider of the black horse is holding a scales in his hand. The NLV translates says,"something in his hand with which to weigh things.

It's kind of a fun read if you're already pretty familiar with the Bible. Or you want to read the Bible to a younger audience.
