According to the needs of readers through the years, the Bible has been translated into many different versions or translations (i.e. King James Version, The Living Bible, The English Standard Version, The New International Version, etc. The latter one mentioned, known as the NIV, is among the most popular today)
Some people like to purchase study Bibles. Among the most useful are the NIV Study Bible and the Life Application Study Bible (this one is available in different versions)
So which translation is best? To borrow a response from one teacher, “The best translation is the one that you will read and apply.”
Most book stores sell Bibles. If you do not live close to a Christian book store and need some help, check Christian Book Distributors.
