A helpful chart for understanding major English Bible translations

There are over 100 different English translations available on the market today.  Often people will begin the process of trying to pick a Bible, only to be overwhelmed by the multitude of translations and versions. In today’s post I have included a link to Zondervan Publishing that enables readers to visualize the leading English translations.  The translations and versions listed in the chart are as follows:  NIV, NAB, HCSB, NASB, KJV, NKJV, NRSV, ESV, NIrV, NLT, CEV, NCV, The Message and the Amplified Version (AMP). I pray the reader will find the chart helpful and informative.

About pastormahlon

By the grace of God I was converted to saving faith in Jesus Christ at the age of 10 and called into the Gospel ministry by age 17. Through the Lord's grace I completed a Bachelors in Bible at Lancaster Bible College in 1996 and have been married to my beautiful wife since that same year. We have been blessed with four children, ranging from 7-18 years of age. In 2002 the Lord enabled me to complete a Master of Arts in Christian Thought at Biblical Theological Seminary, Hatfield PA. For nearly 25 years I have been preaching and teaching God's Word and have been studying the original languages since 1994. In 2016 God called my family and me to move to begin a pastorate at a wonderful Southern Baptist Congregation here in Northern New York.
