    I've never read the NT of this translation. Hs anyone read it prior to this thread being posted? What do you think?

    I read parts of it and I liked it. Now, I own the entire Bible and plan to read it all the way through. As to the seven pure translations, does anyone know which ones they are?

    Well, we know the KJV ain't one. a lot of it was just revisions of the work of earlier translators.

    I read most of the New Testament. I keep asking for someone to donate one to me. haha But, it hasn't happened yet.

    In all seriousness qb is absolutely correct.

    As to the question about the translation. I like it. It is very easy to read (as easy if not easier than the NIV). It seems very accurate. I have indeed picked up things I haven't seen in more complex translations because of the ease of reading.

    I still like my ESV as my major STUDY Bible. I like the Holman as a nice READING Bible to read like a book. I will get the entire Bible some day when I can.
