This is a follow-up to a previous thread (See https://puritanboard.com/threads/crossway-approves-catholic-edition-of-the-esv.101118/ ) I emailed Crossway directly regarding my concern about the ESV Catholic Bible. This is the official statement given to me: “Two years ago, Crossway was approached by Roman Catholic leadership in India about adopting the ESV into Catholic church life and liturgy. After careful consideration, we were glad to license the ESV for publication by an Indian publishing house, supplying Bible readers in this part of the world with a sound translation. Though it is not our calling to publish resources for the Catholic church, we are grateful for this opportunity to support their desire to provide an essentially literal and academically current translation of the Bible. We remain as committed as ever to publishing gospel-centered resources in the historic stream of the Reformation.” Let’s have a discussion about what is contained in this statement, not about supposed hidden motives about making money or the like. I have been assured that if the discussion devolves into hypotheticals or unfounded assertions, then it will be shut down. Let’s keep it focused on the statement given. What do you all think?
