Personally there are translations to avoid, but most modern ones are sound NIV,ESV,KJV,NKJV,NASB. Even the New Living has sound theology. What baffles my mind why some here get so personal and attacking on this issue and why there has to be so many books on this debate. I have the KJVO Controversy and the Word of God in english. I did think about getting How to Choose a Translation for all it's worth but it's okay as I have one of his other books which has a chapter on this issue. Why do people get so emotional in this issue but go as silent as a rabbit when it comes to evangelism and confronting the false teachers (Jude)?
