Favourite Bible translations

January 8th, 2009

When you talk about favourite Bible translations with people it can make for an interesting discussion.

Some have two or three favourites, while some don’t really have a favourite and some will fight you to the death that their favourite is the only true translation that should be used! (I think we have all met someone like the last person)

My personal favourite is the New International Version (NIV). I find that it is both good for reading and for indepth study. The other reason I like the NIV is that is widely accepted by many Christians around the world, by numerous Bible Colleges and is used in most churches I have been to.

What is your favourite? Do you have only one? Or do you have separate Bibles you use for study, preaching or reading?
