New Living Translation

The New Life Bible is a communicative translation of the Bible. The Complete Edition (Old and New Testament ) has been released in 2006 Haenssler -Verlag. It is a German -language edition of the English New Living Translation, published in 1996. The basic text is the Biblia Hebraica the Old Testament based on the New Testament, the Novum Testamentum Grace of the Nestle- Aland and the UBS Greek New Testament. The English original was by a large number of known evangelical theologians (eg, Craig Blomberg, Douglas Moo, and Richard Schulz ) translated from the Hebrew and Greek original text and is a very theologically sound work without special gauges. Main concern of this English translation was next to exegetical accuracy, superior voice clarity. The NLB sees itself as a rather free translation. A team of German translators, editors and theologians who translated and revised the English text. Recent editions of the NLB appear at SCM R. Brockhaus.

Based on the texts of the NLB, there are now also several issues with Explanations: Study Bible "meeting for life", the home group Bible, The Bible orientation LIVE Teens Bible and the family Bible " God's Word in our midst ."

Use and style

The NL- Bible is mainly used in free-church groups. The language style is oriented at a rather simple and predominantly liquid present-day language. Central theological terms such as " guilt " or " grace" are retained.

Since early 2012, the NL- Bible will be sent from Monday to Friday for 30 minutes as lectionaries in the program of Horeb.
