I read my Bible through every year :), but I especially like the Companion version. If you haven't heard of it, I think you should look into it! As always, I highly recommend reading through the Bible every year or even in a period of 6 months or less. It is well worth it and yes, somewhat challenging at times. Contains a total of 66 books- 39 in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament

Update April 2011:
I finished The Bible on April 23rd.
With the 90 day plan, I should have finished on the
KJV Bible with the best Appendix explaining the antharopolgy I have ever seen
I started my studies of the Bible in the original languages in 1998. However, even though I have studied all books of the Bible, it is a continuing process. Each time I study one of the books again, I learn new things, understand things that I did not see in a prior study and continue to grow in the Word every day. I highly recommend this Companion Bible as it reveals more truths through the comments in the side margins and the indexes in the back. If you are interested, have any question or wou ...more

Recommends it for: EVERYONE
I have learned so much from this english version because it refers back to the original hebrew and greek texts. It clarifies the meaning of certain words and phrases. It lets you know how the same verse was written in other texts such as the Septuagint among others. It has an appendix full of information that you cannot learn simply from reading the text. I study it almost daily and have learned more from my own study than any church ever taught me.

Don't be fooled by the title "The Companion" Bible. This King James, authorized 1611, version, is not a commentator Bible. The side margin gives in-dept understanding of the Hebrew and Greek language structure.
This version does NOT include comments/interpretation of the author (which I dislike with a passion).
But, don't stop there...look at the definition (of the Hebrew or Greek) word for yourself in the Strong's Concordance.
The Bible is the best book there is... and even though I've read it through many, many times, I find it can never be exhausted. I am always learning and growing through it. I especially recommend the Companion version as it contains wonderful side notes and appendices to help you understand as you read. This is especially helpful for those who are fairly new to reading the Bible.

Bullinger, an 1800's linguist, who helped Ginsburg with translation of the massorah footnotes which are included, that lock in the scriptures. Chapters are outlined. A great study tool for the student (novice/educated) who seeks in-depth study of the scriptures.
I learned again this year the importance of reading even just a little of God’s Word everyday. It comforts me, lifts me up, is a way for me to send praises forth to the Lord, and most of all helps me understand Him better and draws me closer to my Maker.
The only reason l give only 3 stars is because the print is so tiny.
I did buy the large print btw.
You are best of reading his Bible online.

If someone ask me have you ever read the bible I could say yes. And that's probably all I want out of reading this book. Hail Satan.
Dan Haley
One of the most valuable study tools around! Mr Bullinger is exhaustive in his appendices and research.
