I know religion is a taboo topic, but I think this should be OK.
I have a Bible app on my phone with a Spanish Bible (NVI). I've been reading it in the hopes of improving my Spanish but I am wondering if this is like reading the King James in English (ie right language but not exactly as it is spoken today)
Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks.

this NVI version is a new international version. Personal for my self I would choose a version that is more approved for my specific traditional Roman Catholic. But then you need to find what you are really looking for in a Bible version. And yes I believe rules on this site do not tend to be too specific on religious topics that get too heated and argumentative. Have a great Camino, and remember to be kind and sharing with other pilgrims; such as food drink and assistance.

First of all religion is by no means a taboo topic on the Camino. The Camino is first and foremost a Catholic pilgrimage but no exclusive to just Catholics or Christians.

I found reading the Bible in Spainish a great way to learn.

I find the daily readings useful

Too many and too often!

It may not be a taboo topic on the Camino but it is one kept within pretty tight limits here on this forum. Though I do not think that should be an issue for the moderators if people confine themselves to answering the original question about the tone and style of the language in this particular translation rather than entering into arguments about its theological merits or deficiencies.
