    As per my knowledge, there's only one Bible and that's the "Holy Bible" for Christians.
    Muslims have a similar book which is called Qu'ran.

    I have a Bible at home but I don't even remeber the version. I think they all have the same information.

    They definitely have the same content. But there are some bibles which contain less Books.

    The various versions of the Holy Bible primarily differ in translation rather than content. The ancient languages in which the books were originally penned have sometimes difficult translations into modern languages, and amgibuities are possible (especially when the original writer is speaking figuratively).

    Interestingly, the sciences of linguistics and archaeology, together, are still to this day providing new insights into the proper translations of ancient languages, and clearing away some long-held misconceptions. In turn, this means that more recent translations of the Bible have the potential, at least, to giving a better depiction of what the original authors were trying to convey. How well a particular translation succeeds is another matter, and almost always is a subject of some debate. It's inevitable that a translator's personal biases will creep in, even subconsciously; the more a particular translation has rigorously kept this in check, the more accurately the original meaning is conveyed.

    Wiki's discussion here just scratches the surface, but gives out a taste of this very interesting topic.

    I'm personally partial to the NIV (New International Version).

    I have a New and Old Testament bible at my home. I am not the kind of person who reads bible everyday for enlightening myself, but I read it just for my family. Recently I began reading a few chapters because I had a test that asks questions from Bible. I read the book of Exodus and the gospel of St.Luke. I must say, the book of exodus, though interesting, repeats that same thing over and again. St.Luke's gospel is a good reflection of good deeds and humanity, but not the kind of thing that interests you :(

    I have one, but it's pretty dusty. I keep it as a reminder of how lost people are and how badly they need answers. The bible gives them that. It also gives people hope that when they die there is something better. Unfortunately, that's all it is. It takes a lot of courage to confront the truth - that there is nothing for us except this life. When we die, we die. There may be a god and there may be an afterlife, but not in any biblical sense. We're not that important to the universe. Of course, i could be wrong. it's possible. I've been wrong before, but hedging my bets is no reason to become a christian.
