    Do not get me wrong I love the KJV but I also like the NKJV. Anybody out there feel the same way? I started using it from the pulpit and my people seem to love it also.

    I am an old KJV guy who loves the NKJV. Excellent bible. There are a few places I would have done things differently but all in all an excellent job. :)

    How? It is based on the same Greek text as the KJV.

    I used the NKJV when I first started out preaching. The text is very accessible and I found it to be a consistently good translation. For my druthers, I don't care much for the KJV for preaching or teaching (but will occasionally reference it when appropriate.) The NKJV is a helpful upgrade to the KJV. The textual basis isn't the best, and some of the interpretive decisions are not ideal, but it is solid.

    I heard the ESV was about to the level of 'The Message' now. Not quite to that level of scholarly work, but ever striving...ever climbing.

    You need your blood pressure checked. You look a little too red around the gills...and not John either.
