Did you know that the Bible is the best-selling book of all time and it continues to be the best-selling book of the year, every year. The CBA has released this month’s “Best Selling Translations” list. Does any of these surprise you?
- New International Version
- King James Version
- New Living Translation
- New King James Version
- English Standard Version
- The Message
- Holman Christian Standard Bible
- New American Standard Bible
- Today’s New International Version
- New Century Version
For years I’ve preferred the NIV. Seems like most of the people I preach to use the NIV as well. Lately I’ve been doing my daily reading from the NCV and the NLT. I’ve enjoyed both of these as well.
So what translation do you use? Is there a translation you don’t like? Do you know anyone who thinks the Bible translations they use is actually the only one God authorizes us to use?
