a deliberate "mine-field" of a discussion title... :-)
What I really want to know is what version/translation of The Bible do you find speaks to you most effectively...mainly when writing songs, but also in your meditation and study of the Word.
For me, when studying, it's hard to go past the New King James...if for no other reason than it's what nearly everyone in Australia uses for this purpose.
For songwriting, I like to compare lots of translations, but often end up in The Message, New Living or the Amplified
For my own personal meditation, this has varied throughout my life. At the moment, it's the Amplified...and it helps I have a great version of it on my phone so it's always with me.
But what about you guys??
