It is mostly the unintellectual types of Protestants that are "King James-onlyists" and almost consider the KJV as an inspired translation ("If it was good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for me"). The KJV, in fact, while it may have a certain beauty of language, is nonetheless an inaccurate translation as it is based on inferior manuscripts compared to what we now have.
.Not to my knowledge. Even if it were, you'd be stuck with the KJV translation which unquestionably has a Protestant bias and, as I mentioned, was based on out of date scholarship.

Not really. Get the DRB if you like that and run with, but I have and use both that and the RSV-CE2 and love 'em both.
The NAB is no worse or better than the NIV or most of the others that are out there. Sometimes the notes are not very good, but no one saidf they were inspired anyway. :shrug:
Steer clear of any n-C versions that do not include the Deuterocanonical books.
The original 1611 KJV included the deuterocanonical books.
