As some of you know I'm planting a church. A decision that I've been wrestling with is what bible translation we will provide.

Maybe you have been interested in picking up a new version, but haven't settled on one.

Try taking an online assessment at

When I took the test NET scored really high and I've never even heard of that translation. I'm interesting in seeing what it has to offer.

    I'm pretty strict to the New American Standard Version, as it stays very close to the original words/meaning of the texts. This is important to me.

    After taking the test, however, I was told I'm best with the Jewish Publication Society Tanakh(JPS). Which I find interesting, and will have to check out sometime soon.

    Good luck with your church plant!
