By any chance, does anyone know what translation will be used for the Fire Bible which is in pre-production right now? 

Thank you,

But I assume, like other Study Bibles, this will not include the Bible text, only the notes. We will need to already own the NIV 1984 version.

That is correct. It's a Study Bible based upon the NIV 1984.

I have both the NIV versions. What does it mean to me.

Blessings in Christ.

Thank you. I care little for the NIV. I was hoping it would be the MEV (Modern English Version).

I own the NIV (1984, 2011), but what difference does it make if I use another translation? I have the ESV and the ESV Study Bible, but I hardly touch the ESV, yet I use the ESV Study Bible a lot (my preferred bible is the MEV). 

Amazon is selling the MEV Bible with the "Fire Bible (Study?)", so I assume I can use any translation, correct?

I think you are correct Joseph. One of the advantages of the way Faithlife sell study bibles (bible text and notes separately) is that one can use any translation with any set of notes.

The only irritation may be that when discussing a phrase in the notes there may be a slight mismatch if a different bible is being used as reference text.

I have a number of Study Bibles and I try and use the matching translation with each when I am studying a particular passage.

There are some translations that I don't use but am eclectic in my use of translation. I study from the ESV, I preach in Sunday services from the NIV, I use the NLT for funerals and weddings.

I like to think that God has given me a big tool box and a charge to pick the right tool for each circumstance.

How to get logs and post them. (now tagging post-apocalyptic fiction as current affairs)
