Four ministers were discussing the pros and cons of various Bible translations and paraphrases.

Eventually each stated which version, in his opinion, was the best.

The first minister said he used the King James because the Old English style is beautiful and produces the most reverent picture of the Holy Scriptures.

The second said he preferred the New American Standard Bible because he felt it comes nearer to the original Greek and Hebrew texts.

The third minister said his favorite was the paraphrased Living Bible because his congregation was young, and it related to them in a practical way.

All three men waited while the fourth minister sat silently.

Finally he said, “I guess when it comes to translations and paraphrased editions of the Bible, I like my Dad’s translation best. He put the Word of God into practice every day. It was the most convincing translation I’ve ever seen.”
