Which Bible Do You Use?
Posted by Vogeler on November 12, 2007
The choice of which translation of the Bible to use was, for me at least, a lengthy and personal process. I ended up choosing the Holman Christian Standard Translation, from Holman Bible Publishers for a variety of reasons. First, it’s a fairly new translation, and it’s an original translation, which means that the translators used the original texts in their translation, not other translations. Second, it draws upon the most recent Biblical scholarship available. Third, I really enjoy the way it is written in plain English but doesn’t insult my intelligence.
What translation/version of the Bible do you use in your personal study, Dear Readers, and why?
