I think it's because they have perfected the art of versatility with no real concern for accuracy. (men's version, women's version, student version, gender-neutral version, and the list goes on).I just bought a NKJV Study Bible today.. just before I went to the dentist. I really like NKJV the best. I hear a lot of people "dissing" the NIV. Why is that?
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am soooo leery of many of today's versions due to the amount of changes they must make to obtain a copyright and the many different transcripts out there that are used. I've always stuck to the KJV, but will be purchasing The Companion Bible very soon. There's an online version here if anyone would like to take a look.B2LY:
If you are going to go out to a Christian Book Store to purchase a King James Version, may I please just suggest that you consider "The Companion Bible" as well?
It is a full King James Version, but it also contains margin and tabulated "companion" notes about word meanings in the original languages an well as historically verifyable time lines of certain Biblical happenings and also contains 198 Appendixes in the rear of the Bible that will help you with your studies and give you a much better understanding of God's Word than just a King James Version alone. Thank you.
