If you are looking for a Bible, you might be surprised to see that the spines of many Bibles have different letters on them: KJV, NKJV, ESV, etc. Those letters simply indicate which translation of the Bible it is. The Bible has been translated into English many times, but all of them contain basically the same message.

If you want to use the Bible translation that most English, church-going Christians use, you might want to get a KJV. The King James Version was translated from the original languages of Hebrew and Greek in 1611 and has been used for a long time by many churches. However, the English language has changed since then, so a verse in the KJV is sometimes hard to follow.

If you are not sure which translation to get, and you have no strong desire to get a KJV because of its archaic language, I recommend you get a NKJV (New King James Version) if possible. Whichever translation you get, you will find that the Bible contains dozens of other books. You could start with the first two books, Genesis and Exodus, then jump to the New Testament (the last third of the book) and read through the 27 books in that section.

Where to get a Bible? You can usually find one at a thrift store with a reasonable selection of books. Or contact us to send one to you.
