The Way NLT Bible Review

Today’s 16–30 year olds are looking for connection to something bigger than themselves. They want something that works and is honest, authentic. Something that they can actually experience. Something that gives them hope. The Way offers a way that works. A way that matters. A way that asks them to step up to something important enough—big enough—to live for. It’s a visual, textual, and interactive experience for a generation that has blurred the boundaries of media. It’s an interactive experience for those ready for collaboration, change, and a challenge. The Way connects a restless generation, a generation looking for direction, to Jesus—the Way, the Truth, and the Life. It uses first-person stories, reflections, and questions that bring the Bible to the real world.”

That’s the description that’s used for the Way on Amazon. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. It’s a little bit modernized which will get more people connected because it’s something that can be understood easily by them, say, if they have problems reading other versions. Even the stark black and white photograph of the front couch on the cover, other than myself personally liking black and white photography, the couch, or sofa as some might prefer to call it, provides rest and relaxation. Something that fits into the bible perfectly.

Seeing even the qr code on the cover, gets the kids to interact more with it. I myself don’t have a cellphone ,but it does provide the website which I’m guessing is the same information as the qr code. If I did have a cell phone, I would definitely be using it, another way to get the generation to become more interactive with the bible, and even start to engage with the words that are written it in.

Even reading the first-person stories, brings it close to home, for anyone. They could say, “Hey, that’s like me.” and they might get more hope out of it because they can connect with things a lot more easily. I really enjoyed them and they encouraged me, even everything else that was written to help us out by engaging the word more and living our life for Jesus.

We all want to live our life for Jesus a lot more. With the translation and everything else that’s included. This makes such a great bible to have in anyone’s possession. Even though it’s heard toward teens and young adults, I think  anyone of any ages will get something out of it, hopefully a lot of somethings.
