I love the NCV translation, actually it used to be called the International Children's Version and is a 3rd grade and above re-wording of the NIV. My daughter had this translation when she was young (33 now). I love it for group bible studies, in fact, that's why I bought this one. A gal beside me loves to look over on mine and she said it really "made sense of God's Word" to her. This is going to be a present for her. I strongly recommend this item. :0)
I love the New Century translation for general reading. It is so easy to understand and to get the concept. For indepth study, I use New American Standard, but this Bible version is a great study accompaniment.
The best Bible I have ever had! It could be that it leads me through motherhood, or that it is pink, or simply that it is the best Bible for a mom! The price is great and the text is easy to read. It contains information about moms in the Bible and moms of today and shows how to be a mom and live in midst of diaper-changing , snacking and car-pooling and still have room for God in your life. My only regret is not buying it sooner!
