NLT Mosaic Blog Tour – 10/30

It’s not every week that we here at the ERB review a Bible.  In fact, MOSAIC is the first Bible we have reviewed since we began publication two years ago.  However, it might be a bit misleading to call this review a review of a Bible.  The biblical text of the Mosaic Bible is the New Living Translation (NLT), that was more-or-less finalized in 2004 and is a very readable text, translated by a distinguished team of biblical scholars.  Given the facts that the NLT has been available for five years and that I am not myself a biblical scholar capable of fairly reviewing a translation, I will say very little here about Mosaic’s biblical text.  Rather, I will focus my review on two distinctive innovations of the Mosaic Bible, its design and the 300+ pages of “weekly meditations” that follow the cycle of the church calendar.
