The original Study Notes in this brand new edition reflect the aim of the New Light translation itself: to be accessible and easy to understand. Every page of this Bible contains Side Notes, which explain the meaning of key verses, and End Notes, which apply the Bible to life situations. There is also a full-page Introduction to every book of the Bible, explaining when and why it was written. From the same translators as the world's most popular Bible, the NIV, the New International Reader's Version (New Light) is ideal for those who are new to the Bible, have no church background, younger readers or those whose first language is not English.

"This wonderfully clear, simple translation will make Bible study slightly less difficult for all of us." Nick Pollard, Director of Solent Christian Trust; "New Light aims to recepture the 'easy to read' style of the original Bible writers. It reads very well aloud and has a directness that faces, even confronts, the reader with the text." Terence Copley, Professor of Religious Education, Exeter University; "The great strength of the New Light Bible is the ability to combine a scholarly translation with a modern and accessible style... An ideal translation to use with young people and adults alike." John Logan, BFSS National RE Centre, Brunel University
