I am free to make such statements because I do not review for Crossway… shucks, I would be honest anyway. The ESV is, in my opinion, a needless translation only because a few Evangelicals decided that they couldn’t hand the RSV and didn’t want the KJV. It is, in my opinion, a marketing ploy… but with that said, I do like the ESV Study Bible.
Are you aware that the ESV continues to evolve? When will it grow up? I was sent the link below by a friend today and it troubles me. The document lists nearly 300 changes and this group is only one in a series of revisions that have appeared (quietly) since its publication over a decade ago.
More at the link.
Now, maybe this doesn’t bother anyone, but with all the time which John Piper spends glorifying the ESV, one would think that it was already the perfect translation?
