The goal of any Bible translation is to convey the meaning of the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts as accurately as possible to the modern reader. The New Living Translation is based on the most recent scholarship in the theory of translation. The challenge for the translators was to create a text that would make the same impact in the life of modern readers that the original text had for the original readers. In the New Living Translation, this is accomplished by translating entire thoughts rather than just words into natural, everyday English. The end result is a translation that is easy to read and understand and that accurately communicates the meaning of the original text. Used by permission of Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
