Tyndale House Publishers presents ‘The Christian Basics Bible NLT™,’
a “best of” take on the traditional study Bible

Carol Steam, Ill. (September 22, 2017)—Tyndale House Publishers announces the release of The Christian Basics Bible NLT™, an innovative edition designed to foster the spiritual growth of Christians who may be longtime believers, but who have hit a plateau in their faith. Featuring the New Living Translation, The Christian Basics Bible is a “best of” approach to the study Bible, replacing potential information overload with a clear focus on key foundational topics. The Christian Basics Bible was released on September 5, 2017.

The Christian Basics Bible was produced to address the issue of spiritual stagnation, a major issue facing the Christian church in America today. While millions of American adults identify themselves as Christians, very few read the Bible regularly, even among those who attend church consistently. Unfortunately, many of those who do read the Bible still don’t have a correct understanding of some of the most fundamental truths in Scripture. For example, while about two-thirds of Americans believe Jesus is God, half say Jesus is a being created by God, according to Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research.[1]

With this spiritual climate in mind, The Christian Basics Bible was produced to help believers learn the essentials necessary for a vibrant and mature Christian faith. Striking a unique balance between information and application, The Christian Basics Bible affirms Tyndale’s goal of making the Bible accessible rather than overwhelming. Key features include a detailed topical index on basic Christian truths and over 500 Foundation Notes, designed to help readers connect biblical teachings to Christian beliefs and to see how those beliefs apply to their lives.
