There is a version for every type of reader or researcher. It completely depends on what kind of reader you are. You want the easiest modern sort of language, or you want one that sticks closest to the original languages - it is a difficult thing to recommend based on no knowledge of your learning style or personality.

I appreciate your thought and concern. Truthfully, I just want something that feels real from the get-go. I revel looking up words as I read, and I take things slow, understanding before I move on. I also like being closer to the truth, as shallow as it seems.

I would suggest going to a christian bookstore. Pick up every translation and read a few paragraphs to see what feels right for you. Plan on spending a few hours.
