New Bible Suggestions?

I am frustrated with the NKJV Bible I have. I'm spending too much time trying to get the gist of the awkward language and I'm finding myself reluctant to read as much as I want to...

So, I need a new Bible.

I'm fond of the New Living Translation that the pastors use often when scripture is displayed on the screen at church. I talked with John Tanner about his thoughts, and the NLT was his recommendation (that or the TNIV).

Anyone have any suggestions!?!

  1. We use the English Standard Version (ESV) at our house/church. Adam said it's a more word for word translation (as opposed to the NLT which is more idea for idea). The New Amercan Standard bible is the most literal of all of them; however, it can be difficult to understand, too. Probably the best all-around translation goes to the NIV - that's your safest bet. If your pastors use the NLT, then you might as well go with that one :-) Good luck!
