What is a good Bible to buy?
Well when it really comes down to it, a Bible is a Bible. As long as it's a Holy Bible, with, like rneal said, 66 books, then you are good-to-go, my friend! I got mine from the dollar store and it's a King James Version, thee's and thou's a-plenty. I had a special "Teen" bible when I was younger, and I found it to make reading the Good Book a bit more entertaining as it included inserts that had some neat things relating to teenagers and relavant situations. So you may want to put your age into the equation when selecting your Bible.
There are some other things you may want to consider when making your final decision. For example, why get the Bible in a book form? You know, there ARE DVD and CD-ROM versions that not only show the scripture on the screen, but read them to you out loud as well. Or maybe you might enjoy a CD set you can listen to in your car everywhere you drive, you could breeze through the whole Bible rather quickly, I would imagine. There are also handheld electronic Bibles that vary in size that allow you to, much like the DVD, go directly to the Book, Chapter, and Verse of your choice.
Or if you really want to be authentic, you could learn Hebrew and read the Bible in the language it was written in. That's how they found all of the "Bible Codes" you may have heard of. Anyway, happy hunting! Whichever one you get, they all still lead to the same Path!
Any bible is good ...I enjoy "The Good News"...it doesn't have the thees and thous so it is more understandable to read. I also enjoy my student bible which is NIV by Zondervan. My suggestion is to go to a christian bookstore and pick a few and sit down there and read the same scriptures in each one.
If you feel you are a new christian I suggest reading John first.
Hope this helps you ... You are blessed and highly favoured in God's eyes. :-)
the jefferson bible...
intelligent and does not contain the supernatural aspects jefferson believed had been added by the four evangelists. thomas jefferson did not believe in jesus' divinity, the trinity, the resurrection, miracles, or any other supernatural aspect described in the bible.
some think it is a bible for liberals...
one with 66 books in it. I like the CEV, niv, nkjv, esv, asv and nasv. you could down load e-sword at http://www.e-sword.net/index.html and download several versions to see which you like. Oh it's free.
I agree with ameoba. The Jeffersonion bible is the only one worth reading. While it is still fiction, it is at least much more realistic, and has a much better message.
well you should always have a kjv but if you want to study on your own a niv is the best it explains everything to where you can understand it
As of now, theologians say that the New American Standard Bible (NASB) is the most accurate. and it's really easier to understand, I love it
why would you ask if you are going to just say someone's opinion on what bible to buy is bad?
The Amplified if your a beginner, a NIV if your mid and a KJV if you are mature.
Holy Bible...I don't think that the King James Version is a good one.
King James Version.
