Mosaic NLT Released Today!

The blogosphere is abuzz with the news that Tyndale’s newest NLT, Holy Bible: Mosaic, releases today!  For those like me who have anxiously been waiting, this is great news.  For those who may not have heard or read about Mosaic, here is the brief description from its website:Mosaic

Holy Bible: Mosaic is about helping you encounter Christ in a deep and authentic way, through insight from every continent and century of the Christian Church. Historical and contemporary art and writings from across the globe offer a depth of Scriptural wisdom and understanding as you read and reflect on God’s word.

Mosaic is arranged so that every week has variety of content for reading and reflection. Each week follows a theme appropriate to the Church season (such as Advent, Easter, etc). The content included for each week includes full-color art; Scripture readings; a historical reading; a contemporary reading; a prayer, creed, hymn or quote; and space for reflection.

Tyndale has much more information on the Holy Bible: Mosaic website (

As with other bloggers writing about Mosaic, I will be spending some time with Mosaic and writing a review in the days to come.  Additionally, this blog will be one of the stops on the Mosaic blog tour–currently, I’m scheduled for October 2nd.  Finally, courtesy of Tyndale, I will be giving away a free copy of Mosaic via a contest I will be beginning in a few days!  If you can’t wait to try and win one…jump on over to Amazon, do some early Christmas shopping and get a copy for yourself!

Until all these kick off on this website, I encourage you to check the Mosaic blog for the schedule of blog stops and check out the first stop (and blog-a-thon) at The Church of Jesus Christ!

  1. Hi. I see I’m really super late getting on board this “Mosaic” thing, but I saw your blog today and I’m really impressed with this Bible.

    One question: Hardcover or Leather-like?

    If I’m going to use this Bible as often as I think I’m going to (often in sort of rough environments), I’d like something that’s going to last, as well as look nice, lay flat, stay together, etc. One comment I read somewhere talked about the leather-like edition being glued… etc.

    Just wanted your opinion. Thanks!


    • Chris, thanks for your comment and question!

      I have copies of both the hardcover and leather-like editions and have used the latter as my primary bible since its release. As an Air Force chaplain, I treat my Bibles pretty rough too…carrying them in rucksacks, helmet bags, floorboards, dashboards, etc. The leather-like edition has held up very well despite some serious use in rather harsh environments. The binding in both editions is glued, but mine hasn’t fallen into disrepair yet–no duct tape, no broken binding, no missing pages, etc. The only modification I’ve made to it is to use a small piece of electrical tape to secure one of the old removable ribbon bookmark sets from Lutheran Worship to the spine (thought you might appreciate that!). Also, I’m not sure what your lighting conditions will be in the field, but both editions are black letter, which is quite helpful in low-light, in my opinion.

      As far as looking nice and laying flat, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the leather-like edition to you. The hardcover may ultimately last longer, but it doesn’t lay nearly as flat.

      I hope these thoughts are helpful!
