Over at the Better Bibles Blog, Wanye Layman, is posting in parts Mark Strauss’s paper critiquing the ESV translation of the Bible.
The paper is titled: Why the English Standard Version (ESV) should not become the standard English version.
Mark Strauss, co-authored, How to Choose a Translation for All Its Worth: A Guide to Understanding and Using Bible Versions, with supreme NT exegete, Gordon Fee, a book I have not read, but need to get, and that many enthusiastically recommend to those interested in better understanding Bible translations.
Since the paper is too long to put up in one post, it is being put out in parts.
