I grew up reading the King James Bible and always enjoyed its lovely language. Then at age 37 I suffered my first stroke and one day the lovely language of the KJV no longer was comprehensible. Thankfully God sent me an angel in the form of a wonderful lady from church. I mentioned my problem to her and she gave me a New International Version Bible. I just celebrated my 61st birthday and I read and enjoy my NIV Bible every day. Over the years I have gone through several NIV Bibles and I have found not and comfort all the time. I have spent many days in the hospital and when the ambulance comes my Bible always goes with me.
