10 Questions for the ESV translators

Adrian Warnock, a British blogger who is keen on the ESV, was given the privilege of asking 10 questions about the ESV. Adrian graciously opened the floor to others to suggest questions. He then pulled together the various questions suggested into 10. You can view them by clicking on the title to this blog post. And keep checking at Adrian's blog, because one of these days we will get answers to the questions from the ESV team.

A reminder: please faithfully pray for the ESV TOC (Translation Oversight Committee) as they begin meetings this coming Monday, May 31, to consider various revisions that they would like to make to the ESV text as well as suggestions for change which they have received from others since the ESV was published. [Such revision is standard for major Bible translations, and it is a good thing to make Bible versions better (hence the name of this blog!!). And most people probably won't even notice the changes made in the ESV. It will still sound the same.] At a time when discussions about English Bibles are not always gracious, the ESV team is to be commended for graciously reaching out to the Christian public as they did to Adrian, and also for asking for prayer for the upcoming meetings.

Just to say, I am not a pastor, although you are not the first to make that mistake!

OK, Adrian. I got the pastor idea from the role of "preacher" that you list at the top of your blog. Thank you for explaining in a separate email that you do some preaching at your church but are not a pastor.

I have changed "pastor" to "blogger" in today's post that refers to you.
