    I tried to check the message board, ’cause I know you’ve answered this question before, but it’s down so…

    I know that Jay (or Vince) recommended the New Living Translation of the Bible, but I feel like there was a second one you recommended too. What was that?

    Thanks!

    I don’t know what the other Bible that Jay (or Vince) had recommended but as far as If you want one of the most accurately Translated that are out there I’d recommend the NASB (New American Standard Bible).

    I picked one up a year ago when I really got deep into trying to figure out what was really said. And since I have started reading it over a year ago I have found less then 25 Translation Errors in it….So If you are looking at becoming serious in finding out what was Truly Spoken then I would recommend the NAS.

    Hope that helps!?

    Hey guys, what do you think of “The Message” modern translation? I’ve really enjoyed reading it.

    The Message is a wonderful tool for reading scripture aloud (the way it was intended to be), but it does occasionally fall short in the details of translation.

    For example, in Ephesians 6 there is the whole “armor of God” section, where Paul breaks down life with God into an analogy with a Roman soldier dressing for battle. The Message drops the analogy completely and simply says, “Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life.”

    Concise, but somehow lacking in my mind.

    That said, after double checking to make sure no content is missing, I have used The Message for readings, Bible studies, and even preaching. I think that (as with the NLT) having God’s message presented in a way a modern reader can understand is hugely important.
