Just a quick note about the NLTSB…

Posted: 27th July 2008 by ElShaddai Edwards in Uncategorized

First, a huge “thank you” to the team at Tyndale for providing me with a review copy of the NLT Study Bible (NLTSB) to look at and post about. The package arrived Friday afternoon just as we were finishing up packing for a weekend away with friends in northern Minnesota. Needless to say, my planned reading was left in the office and the NLTSB went with me.

I’m really quite pleased with what I’ve seen so far and look forward to spending more time with it this week and beyond. I’m hoping to offer a series of posts, including a “First Look” style post in the next day or two, as well as a comparison of study notes with the historical-critical NOAB and Oxford Study Bible (REB), which seems appropriate given the focus of the NLTSB on the original context of the meaning of the text.

I’d also like to compare it to the ESV SB notes, at least based on the samplers that are publicly available, as well as my wife’s NLT Life Application SB. I may have to fight my wife for the NLTSB, however, as she seems interested in taking it to her Beth Moore study on the Psalms of Ascent.

  1. I guess that means I better stop reading and get started on writing…
