The most scholarly, fair, and detailed reviews of the ESV, to date, are by conservative seminary professor, Rodney Decker
. Decker has posted to his resources-rich website both short
and long versions
of his review of the ESV. Although Decker wrote his reviews some time ago, they are especially relevant right now when the blogosphere is focusing on the ESV
and different versions
of its origins
. Decker is, in my opinion, thoroughly fair as he evaluates the ESV. He discusses things he likes about the ESV as well as weaknesses.
I commend Decker's reviews to anyone wishing to get as factual and scholarly insight into the ESV as possible. Readers need to be prepared to wrestle with some technical material in Decker's reviews, but that material is still accessible to non-scholars.Categories: ESV, ESV review, Rodney Decker
