Bible Gateway – This website allows you to search a variety of English translations. The link takes you directly to the Reading Plans page to help start you into daily bible reading at any pace. For introduction to Bible reading, check out the Contemporary English Version, God’s Word Translation, or for a paraphrase Bible, look at The Message. Intermediate readers, head into the New International Version. For reading that is closer to the original Greek and Hebrew text, go after the English Standard Version (used in our school) or the classic New King James Version.
