There are a variety of ways that people use the Bible. Some people study it in detail, as scholars. Others read it devotionally. Some study it to compare the teachings of Judaism or Christianity to that of other religions. Some use a biblical text as a jumping off point for a sermon or homily.
Some people use a number of different Bible versions. Sometimes they prefer one version for one use while they find another version more helpful for another use.
What versions of the Bible do you use and what is the most important use you have found for each of those versions? There are no right or wrong answers as we share our responses here. Let’s try to keep all comments positive. Remember, what works for one person may not work well for another. And that’s OK.
