Finally Trying Out the ESV

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.
