So. Baptists reject new NIV Bible, endorse pathway for illegals
Southern Baptists have asked their LifeWay bookstores not to sell the new NIV Bible, expressing "profound disappointment" with the gender-neutral translation.

A resolution passed this week at the denomination's annual meeting says the 2011 NIV Bible "alters the meaning of hundreds of verses, most significantly by erasing gender-specific details which appear in the original language."

The resolution's author, the Rev. Tim Overton of Muncie, Indiana, denounced the new version of the popular Bible translation as "a feminists' dream." He said Southern Baptists needed to protect their congregations from misunderstanding what the Scriptures teach. ...

"Also during their annual gathering, SBC passed a resolution advocating a path to legal status for illegal immigrants. It also calls on Southern Baptists to reject bigotry and to minister to all people, regardless of immigration status."

"The resolution only passed by a broad margin after language was added saying it should not be construed as an endorsement of amnesty."

Both, on the Bible translation issue, and immigration issue, SBC is right on!

The SBC has made the Holman translation accessible to electronic bible programs by paying for it. But Southern Baptists and others can get a free to use ESV bible which ranks slightly behind the NASB for free on many electronic Bible programs.

"While no translation is perfect, the NASB is the best overall version widely available. It barely edges out the ESV, primarily because it is slightly more literal. . . ." from, Comparing Bible Translations--Conclusions

No one saw this coming, huh, since the SBC financed their own Bible translation to be able to cut ties with Zondervan. I'm surprised by how restrained the NIV 2011 is, so far, in its revision, but I haven't had time to read it in-depth yet. This move may be more pushback to Zondervan's high pricing (although the Made In China NIV 2011 is a little cheaper than their previous offerings) than anything else. The HCSB is cheaper, although it's Made In China too these days. While I do see the NIV 2011 coming down in price, I imagine this is more market pressure from bookstores and Wal-Mart to hit a price point than anything the SBC is doing (the Made In China part means the unit cost can be lower, but the profit per unit can be the same).

To be safe, why doesn't the SBC own and control a popular non-defective English (and Spanish while they're at it) translation?

If they don't put their money where their mouth is and merely issue Resolutions, won't popularity eventually drive them to sell defective translations at all of their merchants?
