Bible Translation Poll

Last week we asked blog readers which Bible translation they use in their youth group. 

The results were interesting. It wasn't surprising to me that NIV won out. What was surprising was to see how popular the New Living Translation was, at 22%. And with all the hype about the English Standard Version, only 12% of those who responded say they use it with their ministry.

The stats:

  • 222 total respondents
  • 16 people wrote in the NRSV tying it with those who use The Message
  • 1 person claims they use the original greek/hebrew. Clearly not a youth ministry major in college.
