More Challenges to the ESV
The English Standard Version appears to be overtaking the New International Version as the translation of choice among Reformed evangelicals. I made previous reference to Theodore Letis' critique of the ESV (here).
Some other critiques are popping up on sermonaudio:
Bob Brown of the Reformed Baptist Church of Lousiville offers a review of ESV literary stylist Leland Ryken's book The Word of God in English and the ESV here.
John Thackway has a thoughtful critique of the ESV on the Trinitarian Bible Society site here.
"Christian Agrarian" Howard King has a more acerbic critique of the ESV here and a better talk on "Why We Need a Standard English Version" here.
The Trinitarian Bible Society also has a nice pdf article on "What Every Christian Needs to Know About the ESV" here.
Grace and peace, JTR
