The best Bible translation is…

I have followed Mark Ward for years now. His book, Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible is excellent. His blog, By Faith We Understand is always enlightening. His Youtube channel is full of helpful videos.

Mark is a student and teacher of language—specifically, the English language. His work regarding Bible translations stands apart from most because he focuses on our evolving vernacular and its nuances. He loves language, and it shows.

One especially useful video series he offers is The Best Bible Translation.” If you want to better understand some of the differences, advantages, and disadvantages of the various Bible versions, you’ll appreciate this series.
