The Great Bible Review of 2011

Kent Shaffer —  May 2, 2011

To kick off what I hope to be more frequent posts here at, I am excited about conducting this May a month long series on Bibles.

I have learned a lot about Bibles while preparing for this series. What is semi-yapp? What is the difference between translations? Most surprisingly, it has changed the way I actually read the Bible. I have switched to a high craftmanship printed Bible for in depth study, an audio Bible for at work, and a mobile phone Bible for on the go.

For those uninterested in Bibles, don’t worry. I’ll also be live blogging Catalyst Dallas, featuring new books, and hopefully fitting in a few posts on my own perspectives on ministry.

  2. Looking forward to the series on bibles. I personally love my R. L. Allan Longprimer in full-yapp goatskin.

  3. @jprarie Sorry, no free tickets for Catalyst Dallas. :(

    @Greg I, too, have fallen in love with an R.L. Allan Bible.

  4. I would love to see a review on the ISV, or at least some info on it. I know it’s not fully published as of yet, but from what I’ve heard about it, I plan on making it my new, main study Bible along with my favorite NASB.

    I’ll have to see if I can get a copy to review.
