Reviews of the NLTSB
During my blog delinquency (there ought to be a sniglet for that. If not, maybe bloglinquency would work), a number of reviews of the NLT Study Bible have been popping up online over the past month, especially, since Laura Bartlett sent several review copies to other bloggers. Here are a few (and I'll keep adding more):

ElShaddai Edwards posted some initial thoughts about the NLT Study Bible's focus on historical context. He later posted comparisons of the NLT Study Bible with other study Bibles.

Somewhat related to the NLT Study Bible, Rick Mansfield posted what appears to have become an influential article about the rise of the NLT. A few days later, Rick posted his review of the NLT Study Bible itself.

Brian Fulthorp posted some thoughts about our treatment of Gen 1:1–2:3.

Nick Norelli's initial reaction and full multi-part review.

Bryon's weblog includes his preliminary observations, followed later by a three-part more-or-less review of the NLT Study Bible. In his reviews, he goes from being basically disinterested to somewhat enthusiastic (I hope I'm characterizing his perspective correctly).

Gary Zimmerli has written several thoughtful posts reviewing the NLT Study Bible, discussing the NLT itself, and talking about study Bibles in general.

InternetMonk has posted a substantial review.

Dr. Mellow (Greg Cohoon) has written his first impressions of the NLT Study Bible.

Stan McCullars wrote a helpful review.

Ray van Neste posted a review of the NLTSB Pastoral Epistles.

Jeff @ ScriptureZealot has written some brief observations.

TC Robinson has done an interesting head-to-head comparison of the NLT Study Bible with the ESV Study Bible in the Book of Jonah.

Kevin Sam at New Epistles has reviewed the NLTSB.

Somewhat related, Laura Bartlett's NLT Study Bible Seminar + Giveaway! has been generating a lot of good questions about the NLT Study Bible. We will be addressing many of these questions over the coming days.

Are there other reviews that I have missed?

Only mine, but only because I haven't had a chance to post it yet. ;-) Excellent round up!

Sean, I've just returned from holiday and will be looking at the NLTSB again in the coming weeks. I was pleased with the notes in Mark 5 this morning as I felt they kept the big picture in focus without getting too lost in unanswerable questions (Why did he kill all those pigs, etc.)

Dear Sirs: Please advise me if there is a way to inlarge the type font. My old eyes are having problems reading the small print and it deffinately decreases my enjoyment of the product. I was very disappointed when I received my Bible and found it has such small print in it. That fact greatly lessons the value of my purchase. Among your offerings I did not see an opportunity to select large print. For those of us that are over 50, this is a concern that needs to be addressed.
I look forward to your response, Jaylene R. If you let me know how, I will send you my contact information.

@anonymous: We're talking about when we will do the large print edition. If you'd like to be on a list to get information about it when it's going to be available, feel free to send me a message with your contact info.
