Thomas Nelson Bibles, in partnership with Studies Press, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the New English Translation Bible (NET), a new, from-the-ground-up translation of the original biblical languages into English.

The planning, development, and online publication of the New English Translation began in 1995, when a team of more than twenty-five of the world’s foremost biblical scholars gathered around the shared vision of creating an English Bible translation with a ministry mission.

No other translation is so openly accountable to the worldwide church or has been so thoroughly vetted. More than 60,000 notes highlight every major decision, outline alternative views, and explain difficult or nontraditional renderings. Throughout the NET’s uniquely transparent translation process, every working draft was made publicly available on the Internet. Bible scholars, ministers, and laypersons from around the world logged millions of review sessions. NET translators then filtered every question and suggestion through the very best in biblical linguistics, textual criticism, and their unwavering commitment to following the text wherever it led.

Features include:

  • The newest complete English translation based on the most up-to-date manuscript discoveries and scholarship
  • A translation that explains itself—over 60,000 translators’ notes offer unprecedented transparency
  • Full-color maps
  • Durable Smyth-sewn binding lays flat in your hand or on your desk
  • 8.75-point print size Scripture text in Thomas Nelson’s exclusive NET Comfort Print® typeface


The first and second editions of the NET were released by Biblical Studies Press. Thomas Nelson is partnering with BSP to steward the publication of the NET moving forward. It will also continue to be available online at

NET Full-notes Edition product formats will be available on October 1, 2019. For more information, please visit
