Readers Prefer Literal Bible Translations Over Common English, New Survey Shows

I suspect most people's preference in Bibles has everything to do with the one that gets used in their church so as not to have to buy more than one. Personally­, I try to read a different translatio­n each year. This year it's The Message, one year I read the KJV 3 times. The KJV has a beautiful language and flow to it, but in small doses, please, but then I enjoy reading Shakespear­e. Some of the Modern Translatio­ns are weird, the CEV kept saying "going without eating" like nobody knows what "fasting" means; The worse to read is the Amplified, and I think the most comfortabl­e to read was the NIV.
