    I still think that the NKJV will eventually become the KJV of the next generation

    I agree Phillip. I've seen one of our staunch KJV pastor's switch to NKJV after he compared them. I prefer it because I memorized all those scriptures for all those years and NKJV is almost exact. [​IMG]

    Some great study bibles are NKJV (like MacArthur, the premier study Bible for reformed Baptists, and the New Geneva/Reformers) and that will add weight to this translation.

    I picked the NASB in the poll. I would have chosen the ESV if it had been a choise. [​IMG]

    Like other posters, I also like the NKJV. Aside from the source text differences, it reads very similarly to the ESV. Both have a nice cadence and 'traditional' feel, due to their heritage from the KJV.

    Most baptist churches in my area that use a version other than the KJV use the NIV.

    I use the NKJV, KJV, NIV, & NASB(the version from which the Gospel was preached to me, leading to my salvation) though not necessarily in that order. I also study from a replica AV 1611, & plan to soon obtain a replica Geneva Bible.

    I haven't read any of the LATEST versions very much, as I consider those I've named above to be adequate for me. However, I've seen enough of the People's Bible of England to realize it's a bummer.

    I'm also very careful about the new versions I think the one new version that is really good is the ISV have you read that one the OT is still being translated but I like how the NT reads alot.

    Overhere, the Nieuwe Vertaling of 1951 (NBG vertaling) is the most popular.
    That may change soon.

    I would have choosen the ESV as well, but since it wasn't included I picked the NKJV since I use it quite a bit as well
