C.S. Lewis Bible provokes debate

At a time when the words of the late British novelist, scholar and lay theologian C.S. Lewis are reaching more people than ever, a newly published Bible bearing his name has excited fans and provoked debate over whether Lewis would have approved.

But no sooner had the new Bible appeared than some evangelical conservatives circulated a petition saying Lewis' name and writings should not be paired with a gender-neutral translation of the Bible that came out decades after his 1963 death.

Louis Markos, an English professor at Houston Baptist University, sent the petition to 1,000 academics urging that HarperOne withdraw the book.

Hey your a little slow today, I noticed a thread you hadn't posted your anti-kjv stuff on yet. I won't tell you which one, I'm sure you'll find it.

BIB, good point, but as I understand it, the Crown is to take control off the AV this year, q.v., Authorized King James Version.

Presumably you are with this camp
No to AV.
FWIW Looks like you are in the majority for once.

BIB, good point, but as I understand it, the Crown is to take control off the AV this year, q.v., Authorized King James Version.

It seems to often that many don't realize that most Christians consider these verses really should be applied to the whole Bible,
