Answers to questions websites and the New Living Translation

We’ve been studying the Bible book of 2nd Peter in my “connection group” so far in 2009.  A lot of the content has been about truth and error, discerning truth, avoiding false teachers, how do we know the Bible is true, etc.  As a result, I’ve been able to recommend to the group a few websites that they may find helpful in answering tough questions.  A couple of them are already listed in the links on this blog as “Answers to Tough Questions.”  Also, add to your list www.probe.org and check out www.Peterkreeft.com as well.

 

On a slightly different note, I’ve noticed a lot of people using the New Living Translation (NLT) of the Bible lately.  I was curious as to its origin and how accurate and what type of translation it is/was.  Sometimes I’ve found it helpful, and other times I’ve found it to be a little inaccurate compared to what I see other translations saying.  Also, there are two version of it already, with fairly substantial differences in many verses, which is frustrating.

Anyway…you can learn more about the NLT at www.newlivingtranslation.com and I particularly like their little chart on the differences in translations at this link.
