Essential Evangelical Parallel Bible

  • This superb Bible study resource presents, in parallel, four modern translations in both literal (word for word), idiomatic (phrase for phrase) and dynamic renderings of familiar text. The New King James Version and English Standard Version permit close word-study, while the New Living Translation presents the text in a more idiomatic translation.The Message translation has a distinct character which has been called "vivid relevance" or "response oriented" translation. Complete verses of the four translations are conveniently displayed on facing pages (two translations per page), with the same set of verses on each one.
