    This part of FCCEM Connect is about all things Bible:

    • Reading it
    • Understanding it
    • Explaining it to others
    • Using it as a guide for our lives


    If you have a question or a comment, or if you want to invite others to talk about the meaning of particular verses or passages, this is a great place to do.


    Some basic guidance about Bible translations: Use one that you will read. Yes, there are versions that are technically more "accurate" than others, but a translation's accuracy isn't relevant if due to the way that translation reads, we don't read it! So we recommend that you find a translation that works for you. 


    If you're interested in some options, here are some possibilities:

    • New Living Translation (the one we use in our worship and Bible study groups)
    • English Standard Version
    • New Revised Standard Version
    • Common English Bible (though not a translation per se, this is a VERY readable version, wonderful for devotional reading).



    A great site to visit to explore lots of English language Bible versions is biblegateway.com  where you can access 59 of them... for free!
