Parallel Bibles - Which ones?
« on: January 12, 2006, 07:25:33 PM »
I would like to purchase a Parallel Bible that includes the New King James version...but I don't know what other translations I should look for in my selection?

I assume that a Parallel Bible should have some wide contrasting versions (very literal vs. intended meaning) but I am not familiar enough with the various translations to know which ones I should seek.

Any ideas?

You'll find a discussion along these lines here:  http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php?topic=7880.msg102636#msg102636.  Unfortunately, neither of the parallel Bibles I mention (OT/NT and just NT) contain the NKJV.

Hope this helps.

Thanks...that one seems perfect except it doesn't include the NKJV.  If you know of another one similar to this that includes it, let me know.
