Over the past few decades, society at large has rapidly altered its language and customs in order to try and erase any distinctions between men and women. Although evangelical publishers resisted these trends for many years, their recent attempts to produce gender-neutral English translations of the Bible show just how powerful the pressure is to conform Scripture to prevailing cultural norms.
The recent release of the gender-neutral Today's New International Version of the Bible (TNIV) has resulted in the protests of many within the evangelical and Reformed community. But what are the problems with this translation and should we really be so concerned about it?
In this book, Drs. Vern S. Poythress and Wayne A. Grudem examine the controversy surrounding the TNIV translation and explain the problems with its rendering of certain biblical texts.
