I think I see a new Bible translation promoted about every five years or so here. The most recent is a version called The Message. The New Revised Standard received Moderatorial approval when it was released and it is the version I still use after I decided to upgrade from RSV. My mother uses the New American Version, and I also have the New International Version (with study notes!). My brother favours the Contemporary English Version. I remember once that we had a lively discussion once of the merits of our preferred translations. The KJV has not been the preferred choice of Bible readers in this country since the release of the Good News Version. How do six Dutch translations compare with each other? - andrew. -- Andrew Smith, Intheologus "Death is an evil; the gods have so judged it; had it been good, they would die." - Sappho of Lesbos.
