King James triumphant
According to the last poll, which pulled a respectable 121 responses, nearly half of us still prefer to use either the King James Version or the New KJV. None of us is bothered with the trendy Message paraphrase, almost as many of us have given up on the Bible thing entirely as use the scholarly NRSV, and a bare five percent have been convinced by the evangelically-minded to change to the NIV or TNIV.
Confused? I sure am.
Even more interesting, nearly a quarter of us prefer another translation to the ones listed.
So, if you voted "other," what do you use and why?
