The ESV revolution has begun at Pontiac FUMC! In the past year, I've officially switched to the ESV translation of the Bible from the NRSV. I've been recommending it to people lately. Two people came up to me yesterday and told me they had recently acquired ESV Bibles. This translation which is an update of the RSV came out in 2001. It works well for preaching purposes in our church because we still have the old RSV in our pews. Like the NRSV its a good blend of accuracy and readibility, without the inclusive language of the NRSV. With more and more people switching to the ESV, I anticipate it will be the predominant Bible translation in decades to come. Buy one today!
