06/03/2004 Entry: "The Fathers Day List"

Bolz CD rack that holds 600 CDs and is about 1/2 price. Whoops! Too slow on that one!

Some kind of shoulder bag. Nothing fancy. Just someting I can use to put my Palm Pilot in, some pens, a pad, a couple of yo-yos, and whatever else I might normally carry in a coat pocket. Since it's finally warm enough, I shant be wearing the coat much.

Some cigars for the humidor. This 12 pack features all dark maduro wrapper (which I like), and 12 will last me a whole year, at least!

A copper bowl, perfect for beating egg whites and cream. Or, if you really love me, a whole set of copper cookware.

Speaking of cookware, how about an electric griddle? Or a nice cast iron skillet?

What do you get when you take a Ludwig Black Beauty, and replace all the chrome hardware with brass? Why, a righteous Fathers Day present, that's what!

New American Standard study Bible. The NAS version is supposed to be the closest word-for-word style translation of the original manuscripts. I'm on a bit of a quest to find the most accurate Bible. This study Bible also has some great notes to original Hebrew and Greek words. Handy, because in a lot of my studying to find the best translation, I've been researching the original languages.

Replies: 2 people have rocked the mic!

The NASB is really good to have, even if it's hard to follow at times due to awkward sentence structure (which is kind of unavoidable in a literal translation).

I still do the bulk of my daily reading in the NIV, but there are a lot of passages that are much clearer when I read them in the NASB.

I have beleived for many years that NASB is the most literal translation. I don't have one but I do want a nice one.

I have also heard that King James is not a good one to read. I don't know where I heard that I must admit but the person was making the argument that there were several areas where the KJV translation isn't clear and as such the new KJV is better. I don't say that with any authority. I am simply saying that I have heard that before.
