The ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV)

Our Elders are Prayerfully Considering this New Congregational Bible Initiative

The ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV)

May Become our New Congregationally Endorsed and Used Bible

 90% of our PC churches use the English Standard Version for their congregational Bible.  We are considering this as well.  Why?  The NIV has gone through revisions, and trying to reconcile which NIV one might be using seems to be causing confusion in our congregation.

The current initiative would include purchasing 75-100 sturdy pew Bibles of the ESV translation.  Therefore, we could all be on the same page.  Pastor Bob would teach from the ESV.  Each Bible would cost $10 and members and worshippers would be invited to help purchase these Bibles to put in the chair pockets.  The current NIV Bibles donated to us would then be given for distribution to Hope Cottage, Sunshine Mission, and other organizations providing free Bibles.  Our homeless men could benefit from these donations as well.  What do you think?  Would you be willing to help?
