New Blog Poll: Best Bible Translation

Click to Vote!Okay, I've created a new blog poll, which I'll again do in partnership with the MAR-SBL site. It's inspired by my last post on the most popular Bible translations. Please vote for the translation you think is the most responsible. Click Here to vote!

I realize this is complicated. Some translations are truer to the text's diachronic dimension, others are truer to a literal rendering of the MT, and still others are better at communicating the thrust of the text in the most understanable modern idiom. If in doubt, just vote for the version you would take with you to teach with if you were late to class and could only take one Bible.
