  • I use a lot of them, so I can get a full understanding of the meaning of a verse. When I am studying I use KJV, NKJV, NIV, and NLT(which is paraphrase, not a literal translation). I also use a lexicon so I can get a better understanding of the meaning of the word. They have a good lexicon on that is free for anyone to use.

    For my devotions I use a NLT One Year Bible, because I am already very familiar with the Bible in the NKJV so it is just a fresh perspective.

  • What is wrong with a good conversation with religion or politics at its center. If you listen, or read as the case may be, you learn so much. You may not change your point of view, but you learn. How is that ever bad?

  • King James, but a version with chapter headings, footnotes, Bible dictionary and topical guide.

  • I use the NIV,mainly because my Bible is a Women's Devotional, and that's what they are. I love it,though, they have a plan in the back to read the Bible through in a year,and they have daily devotionals. I do use the KJV on occasion,as well,but I really do enjoy my NIV.
