Just received an email titled A Bible to Help Kids Love God’s Word. I love the title. Awesome concept. But the Bible translation is another issue.
We talking English Standard Version (ESV). I don’t believe another Bible publishing house puts out as many editions of their Bible translation as Crossway does for the ESV. I’ve seen them. Many are awesome.
Recently I picked up the ESV Reader’s Bible. Great looking Bible. I loved holding it. Awesome font and binding. But then I was reminder that it was the ESV translation. I had to put it back on the shelf and sigh.
Again, awesome editions to choose from, but the reading experience is not the smoothest. In fact, it can be quite frustrating at times (speaking from reading experience here).
