What Version of the Bible Do Most CRC Pastors Use?

  164 views

I'm looking to purchase a new compact Bible and am wondering which version I'm most likely to encounter CRC pastors using. I see the TNIV, ESV, and NLT have all been approved in the last 11 years. Does anyone know which version is most likely to be used?

I cannot speak for every CRC pastor, but I've always used the New International Version. For most of my life it was the 1984 NIV, but a few years back I purchased the 2011 NIV. While I consult many other versions, the Bible I use for sermon preparation, visiting, and personal devotions is the 2011 NIV. Hope this helps . . .
