No, I’m not about to offer any prophetic utterance. I’m just excited about something I found this morning while looking for new ways to study the Bible. I know too little to have a considered opinion of the quality of the English Standard Version (ESV) translation, but I am encouraged by the material I found. Admittedly it was all from the publisher, but I feel reasonably confident that I will not be led far astray by using this translation. I am excited for a fresh perspective on the scripture and a reading plan that is similar to the one I have followed for years and allows me to use the RSS approach that has kept me on track for the past year. The MP3 alternative is a bonus. I can take those with me when I travel and need not be concerned with getting it on my phone. I would be interested in opinions from my scholarly friends on the ESV translation.
