love faithlife study bible but i can't figure out why when i try to change Bible versions, it brings me to a list of my Bibles, and NLT is not there. instead i have to open the library every time to select it. Any clues on this?

Where does the NLT fall in your priority list of Bibles? Only the top few show.

See quote with accurate information below:

Translations

The FSB notes are based on the underlying original languages of the Bible; therefore, they’re compatible with several of the most popular English translations. All translations other than the LEB are sold separately.

  • Lexham English Bible (LEB)
  • English Standard Version (ESV)
  • King James Version (KJV)
  • New King James Version (NKJV)
  • New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
  • New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (NASB95)
  • New International Version (NIV 2011)

Kevin Byford (Faithlife):

The NLT is not a supported translation in the sense that the bold text in the FSB notes will not change to use the NLT's phrasing.  Supported translations where the FSB notes *will* correspond are listed here: https://faithlifebible.com/features

You can still use any Bible but only those listed at the link above will be available under the Bibles panel.

I imagine that how paraphrastic the NLT is makes it hard for their verse fragment algorithm to work.

Hmm ok I understand.

still kind of odd since fsb allows you to use whatever translation you want and follows along nicely. I would expect when there's a section of resources called "bibles" that my bibles would be in there lol

I'm not sure what you mean as I seem to be limited to the list of Bibles ... I can't switch it to something outside the list. Have I misunderstood you?

Oh I'm so sorry.. I was doing two things at once and didn't post clearly. I'm referring to thefaithlife study bible app not the fsb in logos. Apologies for the confusion everyone

Any plans for expanding the choice of Bible versions available to include the Message or the Complete Jewish Bible?

It appears that the supported versions have reverse-interlinears available to do the alignmnet. So I doubt that either the Message or the Complete Jewish Bible are on the horizon.
