Read from January 01 to December 31, 2012 — I own a copy

The Revised Standard Version is an excellent translation. It combines the classic structures of the King James Version, phrases and elements that have become part of the fabric of our lives and history, with a modern clarity, and removes archaisms. I set out to read through it in one year, and it's not far off to say that it's been life-changing for me. A small example -- until going through it in its totality, I didn't really have a feeling for the prophetic voice. What's more, it's kind of addicting. I've made scripture a habit now, and this was a solid edition to start with.

Lorraine I have 8 different bibles, several of which are study bibles I use for my classes. I have yet to read through a whole bible. However, I have a delightful little paperback book, "The Indigo Bunting"which takes you through the bible daily with readings: starting Jan.1st --Read Genesis 1-3: Jan. 2 -- Read Genesis 4-6, Jan.3 -- Read Genesis 7-9, etc. Pastor Charlie (Chilton) is the author who has a short homey message on each page. I read a page a day along with a rosary and today's "Word Among Us". As Bill Cosby once remarked: I appear to be studying for my finals!
