I have been reading a protestant bible since I converted to the christian faith about a year ago. I have been raised as a catholic and a couple of months ago I chose to be catholic (again). Now I am starting to wonder if it may be sinful to read a protestant bible instead of a catholic one. Or would it be inappropriate? I like this bible translation because it is close to the original text. In my country there is only one real catholic translation, but I find the cover of that bible childish and unprofessional. Could anyone give me some advise?
