New bibles

I've just come back from a really challenging week of prayer and bible teaching that I love to go on each year, and really feel that I want to change translations from my trusty old NIV to something else more accurate to the original text.

Here's the short list:

  • ESV (English Standard Version)
  • NASV (New American Standard Version)
  • NKJV (New King James Version)
As far as I can gather from friends at the week away, and the people that were speaking, they've all got things going for them. So my question is whether anyone out there has any recommendations, bearing in mind I'll be doing pretty much everything form bible meditation to bible study with it :)

Thank you all & in the mean time, I think a trip to the local Christian Bookshop is in order...




weird is just your own personal brand of normal

I'd go ESV. They're all basically literal translations, but the ESV is the newest so should be most accessible of the lot. Happens to be the one I use.
