Many Bible translations are available, especially in the English language. For example, the King James, with its beautiful language, is a favourite. However, newer translations, such as the Revised Standard, are easier to read. Moreover, all Catholic editions include the books of the Apocrypha.
Study Bible options provide extra background information including maps, and historical notes, while smaller pocket versions are easy to carry. Finally, some include several translations side-by-side so readers can discover nuances in the text.
