Thank you for responding to my post. I just checked out that link and it gives very detailed descriptions of the different versions available. Thank you! I'm thinking now that I may want to read different versions over the course of study, but for now will start with the RSV-CE Bible I just got from Amazon. I got the Good News Bible (with the newsprint cover and stick figure drawings) when I was in high school too. I've always loved it, but realized it just didn't do for study. And it doesn't have the old testament.
The inductive study...well, I think it might be a Protestant thing, although Catholics go. They are very welcoming of different denominations to their study. I always thought, well, we believe all the same stuff, just have different ways of worshipping...but I know now it is more than that. Like the books we include in our Bible, our idea's of baptism, and the Virgin Mary. But the past two weeks we have been looking at "essential" and "non-essential" doctrines, and I do think that, overall, our differences are non-essential.
I took a drive up to La Sallette Shrine today in MA to check out the Bible's in their bookstore. They are all NAB Bibles, like yours. They had some good study guides, too. Seems like all the Morningstars around here have gone out of business - so online is the only place to go for a selection of Bible's. Thank you so much for your thoughts on this. : )
