I’m sure you know that the Bible is the best selling book ever, but did you know that the Bible is also the world’s most shoplifted book. “King John” Dobbs has been talking about Bible translations this week and it got me thinking about, “What’s my favorite translation?”
- New International Version
- New King James Version
- King James Version
- New Living Translation
- English Standard Version
- Reina Valera 1960 (Spanish)
- Holman Christian Standard Bible
- New American Standard Bible
- The Message
- International Children’s Bible
I like preaching from the NIV because that’s what most people here use, but much of my personal reading is done from the NLT. I still have and use my old “wide margin” Bible with all my notes in it. One thing I have still yet to purchase a ESV which many of my preaching friends love. If it were up to me to say what is the best Bible translation ever? I’d say it would have to be the one you’d read!
