I am looking to find a NLT Bible but  I only see one or two posted here. I don't like when the printing is small (old eyes- GRIN) and I don't like it to be on just half the page with the other half taken up by commentary. KWIM? I do like some commentary though. Does anybody have a NLT that they could recommend? I mainly study by my KJV and my NIV, but I saw some verses quoted from the NLT and they were so poetic that I just felt the need to add this translation to my study/prayer time. Thanks!

Pat, there is always "The Book" and I do believe it is available in large print.  Instead of having two columns of text, it is printed just like a regular book, and you can read it through like you would a novel (if you want.)  "The Book" is the NLT (but make sure before you order....older versions may be The Living Bible).

I passed mine on to a friend and I do miss it!

I don't think there is any commentary in The Book, just the plain biblical text.

You could try www.christianbook.com.   They have an option to look at actual pages in each Bible, so you can see what you will be getting.  That is where I bought my last Bible, which is a giant print KJV.
