    Thanks for the link to the book review, Tony. I hope it’s helpful for those who haven’t had time to pick it up.

    Pardon me, while I get up off the floor :-)

    No, I’m not, nor will I ever be TNIV-only, although I began teaching from it last year after determining that many criticisms against it were unfounded (in my opinion). But I always study the Bible with translations in parallel (as suggested by Augustine, and quoted in the preface to the KJV) along with the original languages.

    Admittedly, I still prefer the NASB to the ESV when it comes to the formal equivalent/Tyndale tradition category. Nevertheless, I now own three physical copies of the ESV and two different electronic versions, which is probably a lot more than some folks who use it as a primary Bible.

    Rick – I thought that might get you to comment. I do own one copy of the TNIV New Testament. But it was free :p

    Trevin – I really appreciate your review. I would that all bloggers did more book reviews – myself included.

  4. R. Mansfield says:

    Tony, keep in mind that if that TNIV NT is the original free one with a 2002 copyright, it’s not the final product. There were a number of changes in the 2005 edition from the earlier copy. Many of the changes were in relation to texts that received some of the heaviest criticism. If you need a newer copy, let me know :-)

  5. Tony Kummer says:

    Thanks but I usually compare translations on the computer. I use my ESV for reading and teaching and reference the Greek NT when I can. Otherwise its all on the computer screen.

    Thanks for your generous offer – it is very hard to decline a book of any kind. I never really got into the TNIV controversy. I read a few articles (mostly on your blog) but in general was busy with other things.

    I like the new layout. Much easier on the eyes.

    Thanks for the honorable mention. I wasn’t sure anyone would bother reading such a long post about the Sabbath. It wasn’t an assignment, but I’ll probably turn it into a paper if I ever get the chance.
