The New Living Translation
The LifeTime Bible

I am excited to announce a new Bible from Tyndale that has been over ten years in the making: The LifeTime Bible.

Many Christians set a goal to read every word in the Bible, but often it just seems like an enormous task. So many pages! So many books!

For some, the One Year Bible has proved to be an effective tool for overcoming this barrier. But to others, the fifteen minutes of reading a day is just too much. With all of that Bible reading, how would they have ever found the time to finish the Twilight series? And forget about Harry Potter or the Lord of the Rings books.

Now, everyone can read the Bible at a reasonable pace, with the LifeTime Bible.

April Fools!This unique Bible has divided the text up into 31,390 daily readings, so you can read through the entire Bible in one unforgettable lifetime–in as little as four seconds a day!

Convenience The LifeTime Bible is the most convenient way to read God’s Word. No other “through the Bible” plan presents the entire Bible in such an extended format.

New Living Translation The clear and accurate New Living Translation will help you gain life-changing insights during your reading. Some days, you might even be tempted to read ahead!

Unique Design Most four-second daily readings contain just one verse, but some of those verses can be difficult to get through, so we have broken up around 600 of the longest, most difficult verses into two easier-to-read chunks.

Relaxed Pace Say goodbye to all your Bible-related stress! Feel like a better Christian in just seconds a day. Not like those “other” Christians who don’t read their Bibles, you’ll be able to proudly proclaim that you are working through the Bible slowly and systematically.

Great for Families The LifeTime Bible is ideal for families. Even your extremely lazy brother will be willing to sit through these daily readings, and kids with a short attention span won’t tune out before

Optional Supplementary Plans Perhaps you didn’t begin reading the LifeTime Bible on the day you were born. Don’t worry, there are several catch-up options–or you can just pick up where you are. Skip directly from Genesis to the John and you’ll only miss tiresome repetition (2 histories of Israel and 4 Gospels? Really?) and stuff nobody ever reads (who’s got time for stuff like Hosea and Ecclesiastes) anyway (saving 24,500 days of reading). And if you worry that you aren’t going to make it to age 86 for some reason, pick one of our “Pick Up the Pace” plans. They’re great for people with hereditary life-expectancy issues.

The LifeTime Bible is only available in the New Living Translation, and you can only get one by sending us an email through the new Gmail Motion tool.

How much will this Bible cost? I really would love to have one. I am sure this is a great solution for a lot of people!

Also excellent for the contemplative set, the LifeTime Bible allows you to practice Lectio Divina on every single verse. No more having to choose between depth and breadth!
