Confessional (Done with the NIV)

As the title suggests, I’m through with the NIV. The 1984 rendition was problematic enough, and the latest version is unforgivable. I visit Bible Gateway, which posts a new Verse of the Day pick everyday, and I see mounting evidence of a downward spiral of the work of the Zondervan publishers or NIV translation committee.

Does anyone know where I can buy an inexpensive ESV?

I was thinking the same for myself. Probably some Christian bookstore or Walmart.

Hi Derek,
Try the New English Translation. I really like it. It is also online at: http://net.bible.org

They have a great stance on copyright as well.
