As long time readers of the blog may recall, I am a huge fan of the New Living Translation. It is a faithful dynamic translation providing the reader with a depth with a solid choice. Initially, Tyndale had a Catholic edition, but it was not approved by the Vatican and thus… well… #Jesuits.
Now, my inside sources tell me of a second edition, a Reader’s edition, coming out with the Vatican approval. From the Tyndale site.
Tyndale is pleased to announce the NLT Catholic Readers Edition, approved by the Catholic Church for reading and study and including the official Imprimatur. The Bible includes the New Living Translation text with deuterocanonical books. It also features book introductions to aid your personal study. The Holy Bible, New Living Translation communicates God’s Word powerfully to all who read it.
The New Living Translation is an authoritative Bible translation rendered faithfully into today’s English from the ancient texts by 90 leading Bible scholars. The NLT’s scholarship and clarity breathe life into even the most difficult-to-understand Bible passages—but even more powerful are stories of how people’s lives are changing as the words speak directly to their hearts.
I am looking forward to this updated text
