What version do you use most? NKJ, but I'm researching other types to find the most accurate for my next Bible
Do you cross reference with other versions/dictionaries/concordances? Yes, I use the Blueletter Bible online
Is it a red letter bible? Yes
Do you highlight or make notes in your bible? Yes, all the time
What size is it? It's small, I got it when I was a teen and it was "weird" for teens to use the big Bibles.
What color is it? Blue and Orange
Do you have multiple? No, but I am going to get another one, with bigger margins and a more grownup feel to it.

I like that site too.

What version do you use most?
I like NIV for general studying, but I also use NKJ.
Do you cross reference with other versions/dictionaries/concordances?
I do if I'm studying a particular topic in-depth. I like to cross between NIV, KJ, a Dake's bible and online references.
Is it a red letter bible?
Yep.
Do you highlight or make notes in your bible?
I do a lot of marking and highlighting, but I usually take notes elsewhere since there is so little room.
What size is it?
I have an average sized one that's "slimline" and a smaller one to fit in my purse or use for trips.
What color is it?
The larger is brown and blue and the smaller is dark pink.
Do you have multiple?
I have those two, but we have quite a few bibles in our home. DH has collected several different versions from used book stores. I would like to get a message bible for things like night time or easy reading too.

What version do you use most? I have several that I like but the version I use most is NRSV because that's what my church uses most often.
Do you cross reference with other versions/dictionaries/concordances? All the time
Is it a red letter bible? Most of my bibles are but the one I've been reading most often lately isn't.
Do you highlight or make notes in your bible? I have horrible note taking skills and really bad handwriting so I use a notebook that I keep with my bible instead of writing in the margins. That way I have room to be sloppy.
What size is it? The one I use most right now is medium sized I guess.
What color is it? blue
Do you have multiple? between me, my husband and my daughters I'd bet we have at least 30 bibles in our house. I've never bothered counting though.

What version do you use most?Revised Standard Version (I know there are a lot of people that will tell you why this is not the best/most accurate version, but it is the bible I was given in 3rd grade. The verses I memorized as a kid are all from this translation and I love to see the notes and underlines I have done over the years. Sometimes I still agree with what I wrote and sometimes I don't )

Do you cross reference with other versions/dictionaries/concordances? Definitely. Depends if I am studying a topic or a chapter. Topics I do much more cross-referencing, but even if I am just going through a chapter, sometimes it helps to see other translations to get the connotation of a particular word in that context.

Is it a red letter bible? Yes

Do you highlight or make notes in your bible? Yes, notes, underlines, and when I had them, I would use the crayon highlighters. I lost them at some point though

What size is it?Medium

What color is it?Reddish-Brown

Do you have multiple? Oh yes, I have a NIV Study Bible that gets a lot of use I just don't like lugging it to church, a NKJV that I won off the radio way back in college, DH has an NLT, and one of my favorite's is Martin Luther's translation into german that I picked up in Germany (this one is particuarly helpful for word meanings when I see which German word they chose to use). Oh and I have a great side by side english and japanese one from when I was in japan ... too bad I can't read the japanese (it was great to show someone a passage though and let them read it also)

What version do you use most? Most often I read my NIV, I actually had someone tell me 'that's not a real bible' They read the Amplified version, which I like but find to wordy for everyday use.
Do you cross reference with other versions/dictionaries/concordances? If I am studying just one scripture verse I'll use the Amplified version
Is it a red letter bible? No
Do you highlight or make notes in your bible? I used to, but now I find using a notebook keeps things easier to read, and to look back at when I'm searching for something quick.
What size is it? Regular size? lol It's not too big, but it's not small
What color is it? Navy Blue
Do you have multiple?In the house, we probably have 5 or 6 Bibles, but 2 are the same study bible, because I liked it so much I bought my husband it when we were dating.

What size is it? on the big side of normal I guess.
What color is it? burgundy
Do you have multiple? I have my own and my mother's DH has 2 or 3 i think and we have one that we share. The kids each have one and a children's story bible that they share. So that would be 8 or 9 total.

I've never understood when people say one version is better or more accurate than another. I mean it's all just different ways to say the same thing right? I guess this is one of the things Justin is going to seminary to figure out.
