I want one in "modern language" so no KJV... preferably NIV or something comparable to it. Thanks! (like, the "name" of the bible, publisher and stuff... so that I can find it and order it!)Answer Question
I use the St. Joseph NAB. Not only does it cross reference verses. It also has foot notes explaining the meaning of words and phrases. It also is directly translated from the original languages.

Yes it the only difference is the what Protestents call the Apocripha which even Martin Luther and Calvin used. Although the NIV is also very good. It does have the same things. Footnotes and cross reference. You should also look into the Naves Bible reference. It's in Alphabetical form, so you can find what you're looking for easier.

I use the Illustrated Bible Handbook by Lawrence O. Richards. I believe tt's a Protestant version. I bought it years ago. I still like it. I'm going to check out the book you suggested too oldermom.

I forgot to add that the book by Richards is designed to go with the NIV translation.
