We've had a lively discussion about the NIV, NASB, ESV and Message today.
What's your favorite translation, and why? What do you find yourself using most often? I know Kim posted something about this the other day after her Bible-hunting trek, and Amy is trying to help us win an ESV Bible.
I think I mentioned that I use the NASB. I like a translation that's on the literal side...my NIV use has been mostly out of habit. I have several of them, and it's what I had when I first came to Jesus.
I read up on the ESV a tiny bit and was extremely impressed with what I saw.
