Personally, I like the English Standard Version. Here is why:
- It uses familiar terms like redemption, atonement and justification that Christians are familiar with.
- It is a word for word translation yet the English is easy to read either to yourself or outloud.
- It is an excellent translation. After comparing other translations to the Greek or Hebrew, I envariably come back to the ESV as being the closest to the original in thought.
