I want my ESV

Posted on Updated on

“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 have longed that there be
something more readable than the NASB and more literal than the NIV. The NIV is a paraphrase with so much unnecessary rewording and so much interpretation that I could not preach from it…I am simply arguing that the ESV is the best balance available of readability and literalness. I hope that it becomes the standard for the church.” – John Piper
