Today's Faithful Blogging Prompt

Every so often Courtney at Faithful Bloggers likes to nudge the Faithful Bloggers Community with a Blogging Prompt. It is simply an idea for a blogger to create a post about.

This week's question is: What version of the Bible do you read and why?

My answer:  Mostly I read the King James Version (KJV).  However, from time to time I use other versions, especially if I'm having a hard time understanding a passage.  One of the main reasons that I stick to the KJV is that I love to read the book of Psalms. That particular book is filled with prayers, songs, and poetry. The KJV has such a lovely, unique flow that I think some of the other versions lack.  I like reading historical poetry whether it's religious or not. So, I think my enjoyment of the KJV stems from that as well.

What about you?

  1. Hey Jolene! Beautifully put. I'm an odd duck though. so many people love Psalms. I'm just not that fond of poetry. I'm the "How To", Instructional kind of "Ol' gal! LOL! That's why I love Proverbs. That and Acts are my 2 favorite books of the Bible, and KJV is my favorite version. By the way, I love your blog. As soon as I sign out of the comment section, I'm headed to the Followers section!

    God Bless you.
    Have a VERY BLESSED Easter!
