I have been a Christian for 40 years, and over that time have used 3 different Bible versions: RSV, 1971; NASB, 1978; and the NIV 2011. The NIV 2011 is my primary Bible for reading and memorization. It is accurate, readable, and gender accurate. It is the version God used to help me grow most in my knowledge of the Christian faith, and so I have a strong sentimental attachment to it. My favorite verse is Gal. 2:20: “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now llve in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
