5.0 out of 5 stars Good Place to Start, September 19, 2004
This review is from: NIV Bible (Paperback)
When I was first looking for a Bible, I found SEVERAL! They come in different sizes, colors, with different features, not to mention (NIV, NKJV, NCV, etc.)

I was looking for a new Bible since my old one was an NCV (New Children's Version).

I like how the NIV is presented because how the text is written is less confusing. Compare a couple of passages from a King James Version Bible and an NIV, and you'll see what I mean.

However, some church's use different Bibles. The church I go to uses the NIV for Scripture, so I can follow along words for words. You may want to check with your church to see what Bible they are using.

Also, you may want to check them out and see which one you like best. I like the NIV because it is easier for me to understand. My sister prefers her NKJV.

If you aren't sure in the beginning, but want a Bible, get an inexpensive one. You can usually find them for $5 or less. If you decide that you want a different version or your church uses a different version, you didn't spend $30 on a Bible.

Have a great day!

King Dimholt says:
Why not give the "Holman Christian Standard" a try? That actually is the result of online scholarship. They went back to the source and tried to put things as clearly as possible. It also avoids the overly gender inclusive trend and does not hesitate to use male pronouns here and there. If I were to compare it, it is quite close to the NKJV which your sister likes. Another nice thing about the HCS is that whenever Jesus, an apostle, or the devil for that matter quotes from the OT, it is placed in bold faced type with an indication as to where it's from.
