At the last Ligonier Conference, which is hosted by the noted Reformed theologian RC Sproul, DA Carson, famed professor and churchman—took the TNIV—what many consider an infamous translation, in to the pulpit (Stan got this started… ).
Why is this a big deal for me and many others? Well, many in the Reformed/Calvinist camp have publicly condemned the TNIV. Professor Carson was in a Reformed pulpit.
I don’t believe he was mocking the system at all. Professor Carson was simply using a fine English translation of the Word of God.
