What is your pulpit or pew Bible?

A few days ago I put up a new poll on the TNIV Truth blog. Since this blog gets more visitors than the TNIV Truth blog, I'll put it in the margin of this blog, as well. This poll is easy. It just surveys what is the pew, pulpit, or in any other way "official" Bible used as your place of worship. If you have already voted in the poll on the TNIV Truth blog, I think that the polling service will not allow you to vote here, as well. Votes from the poll on both blogs will be added together.

I don't want to spoil your poll but our church is still in suspended animation using the RSV.

Suzanne, a while back I think you mentioned they were trying to decide between the ESV and TNIV. Has there been any headway made in that decision?

Does your pastor still preach from the RSV?

You've got it - there has been no decision. I suspect that we are moving in the direction of the ESV but I am not sure.

Currently using NIV, but switching to ESV this year.

NIV. I would choose the TNIV if Zondervan would put it into something besides those cheesy editions they now have.

I am not happy with the ESV. I view it as a translation intended to fit a particular theology. I would like to be convinced that it is an unbiased translation. No debate intended - it's an honest query.

I really think that the TNIV is far superior to the NIV. It is in some ways more literal - it is in my opinion a more careful translation.

I bought the blue paperback edition as an at home Bible. But it matches my Sunday jacket very well so I am all set.

I have the edition (TNIV) Willow Creek sent out to its members. But I doubt it matches my Sunday gear as well as yours! :):). Thanks!

You mean the TNIV doesn't come in pastel colours?! ;-)
