The New Living Translation
Renewing the NLT Blog

This blog has been too dormant for too long, but all that is about to change. While I’ve been busy at the NLT Facebook page (as well as doing some editorial work on a new edition of the NLT), there really hasn’t been much activity here.

Beginning this week, we will welcome a few new contributors to the blog. We are pleased to welcome Renee Johnson to the team. I first met Renee on Twitter, but she’s now a published author and bona fide Devotional Diva. She will be offering devotional thoughts from the NLT every Wednesday here on the blog. Our second new contributor will be familiar to some of you from his work on the NLT Study Bible. Sean Harrison is a senior editor for Bibles and Bible reference at Tyndale, and he will be posting about Bible translation issues and developments with some of the NLT’s online tools, such as Additionally, Adam Sabados will be hosting a weekly Bible giveaway on Thursdays. Adam is a Marketing Services Coordinator at Tyndale, which means he gets to play around on Twitter and Facebook all day. You can read more about him at the Tyndale Blog. I also plan to post a weekly round-up of interesting news and notes from the world of Bible publishing and biblioblogging in a new Friday feature, TWIB (This Week in Bibles). Of course, Mark Taylor will also continue to offer his insights into Bible translation and especially the NLT, as evidenced by yesterday’s post.

As if that weren’t enough, I’d love to have you contribute to the NLT Blog. I’ll post some more details next week, but if you have something up your sleeve that you think would be a great guest post on the NLT Blog, send me an email [KeithWilliams dot NLT at gmail].

So what do you think about the new format? Is there anything you’d like to see more (or less) of here at the NLT Blog?

Looking forward to some new posts; always insightful.

The line in your first paragraph caught my attention…“as well as doing some editorial work on a new edition of the NLT.”

There have been three editions of the NLT…1996, 2004 and 2007. Are we now talking about a 4th edition?

I don’t want to start any rumors! I didn’t mean that kind of edition. Actually, I meant a new Bible product, like (the last edition I was general editor on).

Thanks for the heads-up on Facebook. I’ll be checking the blog daily. Looking forward to it! God bless you all.

Thanks for ‘squashing the rumor’ of a 4th NLT edition. Gotta choose those words a little more carefully or us NLT admirers will start runnin’ with ’em. 😉

This sounds great. Whoever put the search box on the blog should get a raise. That’s one thing that was always missing.

I’m sure it’s on the list, but it would be good to update the Contributors.

Thanks for getting this going again. It will be good for everyone.

Excellent news! And nice clean up with the new edition of the NLT.

I like the “new format” since it’s going to mean that my Google Reader will be showing more from the NLT Blog!
