    2 Bibles...a 1970's "Good News" bible and a NIV Bible.
    I once thought I was wrong, but I was wrong, I wasn't wrong.

    I have a copy of The Starrett Handbook For Machinists. Bought it for a quarter at Shorey's Books. Black binding with a ribbon to mark your place. Walk through downtown with it open in your hand and the panhandlers (old name for homeless folk) leave you alone.

    I have a similar book, also much newer.

    We have several. I believe they are all either the NAV or the RSV-CE. The RSV-CE is certainly my favorite translation, and we have a couple of new testament versions of the RSV-CE that very good study bibles: The Ignatius Study Bible and the Navarra Bible.

    Bible just means book and angel means messenger. Christ is not a last name it means messiah. So what does Christian mean, follower of the messiah?

    My family (RC) is/was a fan of The Jerusalem Bible. Excellent translation. Some guy name John Ronald Ruel Tolkien contributed the Book of John.

    John 5:4.for at intervals the angel of the Lord came down into the pool, and the water was disturbed, and the first person to enter the water after this disturbance was cured of any ailment he suffered from.

    But it's kind of pointless without its context.

    It's in the official Catholic Bible, the 4th century Vulgate Bible, translated by St. Jerome (see http://www.sacred-texts.com/bib/vul/joh005.htm#004) --

    John 5:4. Angelus autem Domini descendebat secundum tempus in piscinam, et movebatur aqua. Et qui prior descendisset in piscinam post motionem aquć, sanus fiebat a quacumque detinebatur infirmitate.

    My Latin is a little (a LITTLE rusty? Try PRETTY rusty!), though I'm sure Andrew Craig-Bennet can do better than me at the translation. But off the top of my head, after 40 years (Thanks, Walnut Hills High School! I hated it, but it stuck!), I read

    "An angel descended a second time into the pool and moved the water. And anyone who descended into the pool after the motion of the water was made whole from whatever diseases afflicted them."

    Not sure what prior is doing in there, since it means pretty much what it does in English: before, formerly, earlier.

    Maybe you can read it as "anyone who descended into the earlier was then healed after the motion of the water." So if you had taken waters before the angel riled it up, once they did, you were healed.

    New American Bible. I don't see "NAB" listed in the OP.

    I have a Mark's Handbook which looks very much like the one shown in #45; probably equally as old. I find the section on aeronautics especially interesting. Information on wood is useful.

    To be frank, I dunno how many different translations or other we have around. We have a couple of Greek new testaments, and Hebrew of the Jewish scriptures, and I had previously an "interlinear" Bible, which had a literal word by word translation under the original language, with translators' comments. We also have a latin Vulgate around, and the Benedictine prayer book I've been using for a year now is in Latin, using Jerome's psalms from the Vulgate. I think we have a Spanish and French and maybe Portuguese translation kicking around too.

    But English? We have the Authorized (King James), RSV, NRSV, NEV, NIV, Jerusalem, Good News, The Message, and God only knows what else.

    The Glenans Manual of Sailing . it even says on the spine 'The Yachtsman's Bible'

    All of this is a bit of a thread drift though, as the original question is 'Why Bible do you have ?'

    Exactly.
