The topic of Bible translations had long been a hot button with many people. Many conservatives stand firm on the King James Bible as the only â€˜authoritativeâ€™ Bible version there is. They fail to realize that there are some very accurate translations that pre-date the King James such as the Geneva Bible, which was the Bible the colonists brought with them to America.
Personally, I use a number of different versions including the KJV, ESV, NASV along with referring to the Greek and Hebrew when necessary. Currently I have at least a dozen Old Testament and nearly thirty New Testament versions of the Bible. I am not married to any one version and would recommend that others adopt a similar policy. By reading a number of different versions you can often get more out of a passage than what you would by reading only one.
Others have opted for translations that are just as or perhaps even more accurate than the King James that are written in more modern English than the archaic King James such as the English Standard Version or New American Standard Version.
