"What Bible Should I Use?"

Three practical and insightful suggestions given by Dr. Bill Mounce:

  1. Adopt one [translation] as your main Bible (e.g. NIV'84, NLT, HCSB, ESV, etc.)
  2. When you are studying a passage, always check at least one other translation.  If your main Bible is dynamic, check with a formal translation, and vice versa
  3. I enjoy checking a passage in several dynamic translations, telling myself that I am reading the translators' opinions of what the text means
