Finally Trying Out the ESV

August 2nd, 2008 · No Comments · Bible, Bible Translations, Christianity, Religion

We finally picked up an ESV translation of the Bible. Can’t wait to see how it does. I have heard so many good things about it from several different people from several different perspectives so this should be good.

    It’s pretty good, except for all of the gender-neutral language it uses. Instead of translating passages literally, it re-casts them to use generic pronouns instead of using the (biblical) masculine ones.


    Seriously, it is a pretty good translation. I use it and the TNIV almost exclusively.

    i read it for my daily bible reading last year. and then used it as my main bible for teachign thessalonians recently.

    i really like it too,. i still preach from NIV, since it is our pew Bible, although our members use lots of KJV, NKJV, NAS, etc.

    Any update? How are you liking it? It is my favorite version.
