This isespecially true when dealing with an ancient language such as NT Greek.For one that does not know Greek, the best way to find the true meaning ofthe original writer is to compare translations and sift out the real kernels.There are many parallel bibles on the market today, but this is the best forthe New Testament that I have found. With the 8 most respectedtranslations on the same page, comparisons are very easy. The layout ofthe translations on the pages is also very well thought out. With the NCVand CEV side by side, the NIV over the NKJV, the KJV next to the NASB,and the NLT over the Message, the most literal are ggouped in one areawith the paraphrases at the other end and the more balanced versions inthe center. One thing that I had trouble finding out before I ordered wasthe exact layout, so here it is: Top row KJV, NASB, NIV, NLT and bottomrow NCV, CEV, NKJV, MSG.
