Understand and Choose a Bible Translation

You might have grown up around Bibles, but want to understand them a bit better. Or maybe this is all new to you. Perhaps you simply don’t know where to begin choosing which Bible translation is right for you, or even what the difference is between various Bible translations.

In this section I want to cut out the potentially overwhelming detail and simplify this for you, before finishing with some advice on how to make sense of your options.

Favorite Journaling Bibles

In this section, I’ll share the Journaling Bibles I own, love and recommend. Perfect if you feel too overwhelmed with options, or just want a Bible you’ve seen me use.

In this area of the guide you can view Journaling Bibles broken into collections by Translations, Types, Features, Audience and Editions. View the options you have in your favorite translation and then head to Features of Journaling Bibles, to see Large Print or Red Letter options (for example), to cross reference. If you find a Bible you love and want to see if it comes in other covers or styles (to narrow down options even further), you can view Journaling Bibles by Edition. All the Bibles in this cross referencing area of the guide feature American English text, in a variety of Bible translations.

In this part of the guide you’ll find Journaling Bibles that are perfect for a particular audience, be it a child, teen or man in your life. Perhaps you’re buying for a child or grandchild/teen in your life, or you’re trying to cut through the fairly frilly options you’ve seen, to get something a little more toned down.

You may be wondering why there are no women recommendations.
