"leave the New World Transaltion alone---it's from the JW's and don't mess with the Book of Mormon either." Yea you better stay away from those. You wouldn't want to form an opinion on them before even opening them and giving them a chance.........
lol if you just want a Bible I personally would try the King James Version. If you want more readings to try out so you can form an opinion yourself, I would contact those denominations. Good luck!

Be warned though... The King James version can be very difficult to read and understand if you are new to Bible study (it's the King's English). I would recommend a good KJV for meditation and learning to read the language but for learning the Bible stories and understanding them better I recommend the NIV.No matter which Bible you choose, they are translations from the original Greek and Hebrew. All versions have misinterpretations of words and phrases. So for Bible study I would also recommend Googling articles about what you are reading as well. Good luck!

Is there just one universal Bible that has it all?
The Orthodox bible that has the most OT books then you would have it 'all'. Most other denominations don't think the OT books they've excluded are wrong/bad- they just question whether they are inspired by God. Personally, I disagree that the KJV is the best translation. Like many older translations it's based on only one set of texts. We've discovered several other ancient copies of biblical texts since then and have a better understanding of the language and customs of that time. I think more modern translations are more accurate. Then you need to decide if you want a more literal translation (catches the nuances of the writings but is harder to read) or a more dynamic translation (easier to read but loose some of the sublties).
