    I know it has been out a while, but I just got a copy of the NLT 2nd ed.

    Some of you have already reviewed much of this translation, and I was wondering if there were any passages that were especially noteworthy. I'd appreciate "the good, the bad, and the ugly," so to speak.

    Note: I would appreciate it if those who are KJVO would not comment on these issues. I'm not interested in the KJV debate. God bless you all, but I'd like to hear from those who might actually use the NLTse.

    Do a search in the translation forum. Rippon has a lot of good info there.

    Wow. This is a thorough (and very good) revision. I actually think that it was sufficient to warrant a new name for the translation. You can hardly tell that the NLTse came from the NLT.

    I just finished reading the New Testament in the NLTse. (I have no training in Greek, FWIW, so I can't tell you what's "wrong" with it.) From a regular joe's perspective it's the Cadillac of dynamic equivalents. I thought the NIV was easy to read prior to picking up this translation, but discovered that I was reading relatively quicker and remembering more about what I read with this translation. Also, I find it easier to memorize from.
