I already have been advised to get a study bible because I don't have the ability to understand the way it is written. But what should I consider in buying a bible, who it's made by?
And if my family follows the new king james version, should I find a certain author?
You can check out this site for several of the popular versions. You can click on the one you want and look up any scripture from there.
The King James version is generally considered a "hard to understand" version. I like the New Living Translation for myself and it has a great Study Bible. It's called the "Life Application Study Bible" and actually comes in different versions but again *I* like the New Living!
The New Century Bible is considered very easy to read. You can check it out here. I don't think they have an actual "study" Bible though. Personally I don't think you would need one if you get this translation.
I hope you find what you're looking for! I used to work in a Christian bookstore - pm me if you want to!
