Bible Translations and Formats

If you’re like me, you get overwhelmed at times with the different Bible translations and formats that book stores carry these days.

The first thing someone may ask is, “Which translation is the best?” The answer to that is, “Whichever one you will read the most.” But if you’re curious about the different translations, zondervan.com has a great chart that shows popular translations and where they fall on the spectrum from word-for-word to thought-for-thought.

This chart gives you the grade reading level of each.

The Bible Design Blog reviews a wide variety of Bibles on the market, which you may find interesting. It also includes some interesting ideas for having a Bible rebound.
