What version is mosed used by Baptist (besides the KJV)
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.
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 use the NASB 95% of the time.
I picked the NASB in the poll. I would have chosen the ESV if it had been a choise.
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 should have put the esv on the poll Michael52 I also use that version
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
