Bibles

Which bible do you use for everday reading and is your church a King James only version?

I read the NIV bible.

I use the NIV version for daily reading/studying.

Our church sometimes uses the KJV...but usually the NIV.

I like to read The Message but I usually use the NKJV or NIV for study. I have a great computer programme that gives me quick access to many versions. It's a big help, especially for passages that are hard to understand!

Interesting topic.

I prefer the New American Standard. Most in our church use NIV and I did/do all my memory work out of the KJV. Sometimes that makes it interesting to try and look up a verse I remember but in a different version the key word may be different with the same meaning. Then we get all our versions out to see how they compare.

Oh, and when studying to teach kids, I really like the International Children's Bible. Almost makes it so you don't have to explain anything.

I grew up in the KJV and have always read that. The church I attend now is strictly KJV. I do have a Women's Devotional Bible and another I received as a teenager that are different versions, but I haven't read that much of them. I guess it's just too well ingrained in me to go with the KJV.

Martiehawk, I know what you mean about memorized verses being in the KJV. I also like the way KJV puts verses in italics when they are not in the original documents. Isn't it wonderful that we have God's word in black and white and readily available to all of us? That's amazing when you think about it!

It's put me in a quandry sometimes since we mostly use NAS, as to which version to have my kids memorize from. I think we've pretty much stuck with KJV for memory work. I just feel like it keeps me on my toes and keeps me studying.

I'd love to find a parallel Bible that has KJV, NAS, NIV and ICB all in one. Haven't found it yet though. I think including the ICB is going to be the tough part. LOL!

Martie, I love ICB for the kids as well.
We use NIV at our Church mostly. I have NIV and NAS, and have recently got the New NIV. Dd uses True Images, which is NIV written for teenage girls with lots of articles and bits in it. She loves reading it whenever she gets the chance. Ds has ICB but will get a new Youth Bible at the end of this year. We decided a really cool Bible when starting High School might help keep it up as a good habit!
I love the Psalms in NAS, but like the understanding of NIV.

KJV is still the one that the verses from my past are memorised in!

Thanks for this topic trainlady.
