Have you been reading the negative reviews of the new “The Voice” Bible on the various blogs lately?
I have. And it just occurred to me: what if the new “Common English Bible” that the mainlines are working on turns out to be something along those lines???
I had assumed that the CEB would be another fine attempt at making an excellent translation, just as the NRSV was, or the TNIV and NLT, etc., on the evangelical side of things. It never occurred to me until now that they could be trying to put out something like “The Voice”, containing liberal/progressive mistranslations from the emergent church movement.
Now I’m worried!
