Hello everyone. I am confused when it comes to selecting a version of the bible to purchase. My wife and I want a nice big family bible. this bible will be used to record family history and to read our daily one year reading plan out of to the kids. Current versions of regular bibles we own are the KJV, NKJV, NIV, CEV, NLT. The KJV is hard for me and the kids to understand, I find the NLT easy to read but after doing some research I found out that it is thought for thought. I would like to find a bible that is easy to read, and understand. I did find a helpful website that shows the difference between all of the, http://www.apbrown2.net/web/TranslationComparisonChart.htm I find the word for word ones difficult to follow with the sentence structure most use, and the thought for thought ones flow easily. I understand some thought for though ones differ greatly the closer one gets to the paraphrased version. I guess my question is what do others use that is easy to follow and understand hat really gets the point across?
