Does the English Standard Version Stand in the Classic Mainstream of English Bible Translations?

12 December 2019

From time to time the Society produces new articles that deal with matters of importance relating to the doctrine of the Holy Scriptures. Recently we have published a new article Does the English Standard Version Stand in the Classic Mainstream of English Bible Translations? written by Mr L. Brigden, the Society's Senior Editorial Consultant (Linguistics).

This new article discusses the ESV's profession to be in the classic mainstream of translated Bibles and adherence to the translation principle of formal equivalence. The article shows that in contrast the ESV actually departs from that claim by abandoning the Greek Received Text for the Critical Text and then also departing from the principle of formal equivalence several times. This new article can be read online here, downloaded as a PDF here, or copies may also be requested from the Society.
