The Bible is a book that is different from every other book in the world. When we study it and begin to understand it and live by its teachings, we are becoming obedient to God and fulfilling His purpose for us in our lives on earth. Here are five ways you can begin to make God's Word, the Bible, central to your life each and every day.
What version of the Bible do you recommend?
We recommend a good study version of the Bible for your reading... one that is modern enough to be readable, but at the same time an accurate translation that will give you a true view of Scripture. Avoid paraphrased versions like "The Message" for your daily reading--it's a useful tool but not appropriate for daily study. Instead we recommend both the New International Version (NIV) and the English Standard Version (ESV). If you want a more literal translation (even more accurate, but not quite as readable), try the New American Standard Bible (NASB).
