This volume brings together a quartet of modern translations popular among evangelical Christians today. They span the full range of approaches, from the most precise and literal to the most dynamic and reader-friendly. The NKJV and ESV permit close word study, while the NLT2 and The Message present the text as audiences might have experienced it.
The Essential Evangelical Parallel Bible is the first resource to feature these four translations in a parallel setting, and it is the first parallel text Bible to feature the updated NLT2 text. The Updated Edition features the most recent updates to the English Standard Version and New Living Translation texts. The four versions' complete texts are conveniently displayed on facing pages (two translations per page), with the same set of verses on each one. This arrangement makes it easy for readers to compare how different scholars rendered the ancient biblical texts into Modern English.
The Essential Evangelical Parallel Bible includes the preface or introduction of each translation. It clearly illuminates the translation philosophies and word choices made by diverse groups of evangelical scholars whose work is relied upon today by millions of believers.
