Eternal Perspectives has posted his Warnie acceptance speech

EXCLUSIVE interview opportunity with the ESV Translation committee

I am delighted to announce that I have been honored with an exclusive "interview" with the Translation Oversight Committee of the English Standard Version of the Bible. I will be asking them ten questions, which they promise to answer! My respect for this version of the bible continues to increase, and despite my best goading I have found surprisingly few bloggers who will publicly detract from it. Maybe my first question should be "Why, out of all the bloggers who love the ESV did you choose … [Read more...]

Unveiled Face's Warnie Acceptance speech

John Piper on the ESV

John Piper was frequently quoted by other bloggers who like me love the ESV, heres what he says, he goes onto list some specific examples:Not only am I not on board. I would be happy to see the NIV sail into the sunset if it could be replaced by the ESV as the standard preaching, reading, memorizing Bible of the English-speaking church. I feel so strongly about this that I volunteered to do this tonight before I was asked. There is no coercion here. I feel what I am about to say with a passion … [Read more...]
