Bible Version

A couple years ago—perhaps compelled by a comment by me—my dad and my stepmother sent me The New Student Bible—Expanded and Updated (Zondervan, New International Version).  This is the version of the Bible I will work through.  For one, it’s the one my dad took time to send to me.  Second, it’s the one I have (aside from the pocket Gideon version, which a well-meaning individual thrust into my hand on campus–this one seemed a bit light for my purposes here).

I will do my best to skip the commentary by the author and instead focus only on the content of the good book.  I understand that The Bible has been altered, re-interpreted, corrected, etc. several times over.  As such, is there any “correct” version? Given this fact, I will assume that what is in this edition is as close to anyone else’s as is practical.

    Have you known about The Bible Project? They give excellent overviews of each book of the Bible. A lot of growing churches, schools, study groups, families, and individuals around the world have been using their resources for study, and for myself, it has been a big help in making it easier to read and understand the Bible, and thus also have been a big help in clearing my own confusions about the Book, life, and God. I hope you will check it out, and I hope you will find peace, joy, and love in your journey.

    Hi have you found an answer to your question yet? I’ve been wondering the same thing and all I’ve found so far is that NIV & KJV seem to be the most common versions of the Bible.
