Okay ladies...I am NOT trying to start a debate here, I just know there are a few ladies out there who are church going, and I am curious to know what kind of bible you have. I got a new one last year, after finally retiring my old teen bible. I thought I really liked it, but it's so small. The words are tiny and I struggle with reading it. I want one that I love to pick up and read, and can teach me more. So, I am wondering, what kind of bible do you have? It can be any version, NKJV, NCV, NIV, it doesn't matter. Can you link me to your bible and tell me what you love about it? We are going to hit a Christian book store tomorrow so I can shop, and I would love to see some before hand! Thanks! Again...not trying to step on toes here.
I have an NIV Student Bible from Zondervan's. It is a decade old so couldn't find the exact one online. I prefer NIV and like the study bibles because they have extra notes in them that I find relevant and helpful.
I have a regular KJV Bible. I have always read it, so I love it. But I know most people don't prefer the read the KJV, so?

I have so many Bible versions.
The one we're using a lot right now is the English Standard Version. It's a nice compromise between the NKJ and NIV. So you get the poetry of the NKJ with the ease of reading of the NIV. It's worked to be more accurate to the original languages.
I'm eagerly awaiting our Synod's publication of the Lutheran Study Bible. It will be ESV, but formatted sort of like our Concordia Study Bible... but all the study material is being prepared by Lutheran theologians which is cool. I'm so eagerly awaiting it... I've been following the publication releases.
This is the one I have, and I love it!!! The devotionals are great. I've been trying to read the Gospels again when I'm in between devotionals (I do confess that my bible reading time is on the toilet though, I just don't seem to have the time otherwise to really read it)

I'll admit to not reading the bible but we own a million and a half since we both went to bible school and work at the church. The more accurate version is RSV or NRSV which is the closest to the actual cannonized version we can get to hebrew. I dont have one in here but the one our profs prefered also had a few non cannonized books in there.
DH loves buying new bibles and among his faves are the message, which is formated like a book.
One of my favorites is the Life Applications Study Bible which you can get in lots of different versions. I know that my dad really likes the John MacArthur study bible.
I have to say it just cause I went to bible school...y'all know that KJV is the most inaccurate version right? Okay, just needed to say it
