Just a hypothetical question. You want to publish a 4 version parallel Bible that will serve the serious student of the Word as well as a new Christian and the Evangelical. You can only have 4 because that way you can have 2 columns on each page each containing a version so where ever the Bible is open to, you can examine 4 different translations more easily. Remember you WANT it to be of interest to as many Christians as possible without compromising accuracy and personal conviction and well ,you DO want it to sell too! I would choose these: KJV - NAS95 - ESV - TNIV I was really wanting to get the HCSB in there but I wanted it to be of interest to as many believers as possible. You have the proven and dearly loved KJV on one end and the super popular TNIV on the other end. In the middle is the very literal and highly regarded by scholars, NAS95 and then the easier to read yet accurate ESV. I think it is a virual MUST to have the KJV as one of the versions just becuase it is the KJV!! Also, so many today just enjoy the NIV so you almost HAVE to have that one if you want it to sell and by all accounts the TNIV is better than the NIV. So these two versions are essentially a must IMHO.
