    Choosing a Bible to Read

    I want to read the Bible. Yes, you heard me correctly: I want to read the Bible. But not just any Bible. I want to read a Bible with an accurate translation with reference to the best linguistic and historical facts available. And I want footnotes if necessary to understand the context of the translation.

    Notice I did not say anything about religion. While the Bible is obviously intricately entwined with much of Christianity, I want to avoid the more religiously partisan translations. So I'd like to entertain recommendations of versions from my readers. Go on, put your thoughts in the comments.
