Bible Translations Comparison Chart

A company I discovered a while back called Rose Publishing creates tons of "e-charts" on Bible-related topics. Occasionally they make samples available for free download (so far I've amassed a collection of 24 of the free charts), and today they released one that I thought might be of interest to my readers: the "FREE 'Bible Translations Comparison' eChart." The free version of the chart compares some characteristics of four Bible translations: the KJV, NIV (2011 edition), NASB, and NLT. Here's the link to the free download:

The full version compares twenty translations, and is available for $3.99 to download (they also have pretty cool-looking wall-chart editions in the $10-15 range), so if you like the free version you can download from the link above, you might want to spring for the 20-translation edition. Here's a list of the translations in the full (paid) versions:
  • American Standard Version
  • Amplified Bible
  • New American Standard Bible
  • Revised Standard Version
  • New Revised Standard Version
  • English Standard Version
  • King James Version
  • New King James Version
  • New Jerusalem Bible
  • New American Bible
  • New International Version 2011 (NIV)
  • Common English Bible (CEB)
  • Today's New International Version
  • God's Word
  • Holman Christian Standard Bible (Holman Bible)
  • New Century Version
  • New Living Translation
  • New International Readers Version
  • Good News Translation
  • Contemporary English Version
  • The Message
By the way, the free download is only guaranteed to be available until Tuesday, September 4, 2012, so jump on this one pretty quick!
