- Koorong

<p>A few years into his current pastoral role, Kevin DeYoung was faced with a church that needed to replace its well-worn pew Bibles. DeYoung wrote to his congregation, outlining seven reasons why he preferred the English Standard Version (ESV) and was proposing its adoption. Among his top reasons for switching to the ESV DeYoung noted its essentially literal translation philosophy, avoidance of over- and under-translation, consistency in translating important Greek and Hebrew words, and retention of important literary features.</p><p>DeYoung's letter has been newly edited and put into booklet form. Sold individually or in packs of ten, <em>Why Our Church Switched to the ESV</em> is an excellent tool for pastors or lay leaders seeking to learn more about the English Standard Version. </p>
