I'm looking to expand my literary background, and I've decided that the Bible is a pretty important text to read. The problem is that I'm not quite sure which version to get.
I don't really mind whether or not it's annotated, but I think that I'd be better off with one that is. I'm not looking for one that has either a Judeo/Christian viewpoint or an atheistic viewpoint, just one with that tries to point out literary/historical/archeological/cultural significance. Also, I know that a lot of euphoric persons tend to point out that modern Bible translations are heavily edited, and I was wondering if this is true, and whether or not I should take this into account when deciding which version I should get. I prefer to get one that's as true to the original text as possible, but if for some reason this isn't a good idea, I'd like to know.
