Bible History and Versions

"The English Bibles"

From the Originals to the Various English Versions

In 1999, I published a public domain paper which represented about 4 years of personal research. It is rather dated now, but includes a lot of good content.

Version Comparison Summary (1999)

My concluding opinions based on my 1999 study, are that both the King James Version (KJV) and the New American Standard Bible (NASB) are both excellent choices, the New King James (NKJV) is acceptable, and the original and various revisions of the NIV Bibles are to be avoided.

Updates Since 1999

A lot has changed since 1999!

I have decided not to update my 1999 paper, but to provide some additional version-review comments. Please note that these are my personal opinions, based on my own research and evaluations.
