Well a Parallel bible usually refers to a bible that has more than one translation. I currently have two that a different.
My mother had one that had four translations in parallel. In other words, on any given page you have the same scripture translated say KJV, New
American, etc. My favorite one contains the actual Greek text, and the New Revised Standard Version (for the New Testament only of course).
What is great about these is that you can read the translation, and then look over and see the Greek. If you have a good concordance (say Strong's
Exhaustive concordance) you can then look up the actual greek word and determine for yourself how accurate the translation is.
