Title: New Bible Translation To Be Published

NASHVILLE, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- The world's best-selling Bible has been revised after a 2002 gender-inclusive version condemned as too liberal failed to sell, its publisher says.

Since 1978, the New International Version has been the most popular Bible among evangelicals, selling more copies than any other version, but the 2002 gender-inclusive edition was a publishing failure, The (Nashville) Tennessean reported.

The new edition published online this month, with printed copies to follow in March, retains some of the language of the 2002 edition but includes changes like returning to using words such as "mankind" and "man" instead of "human beings" and "people" to appease critics.

Bible scholar Doug Moo, who headed the translation committee, said the group wanted to create an accurate English Bible without offending readers, the Tennessean said Friday.

"We really tried to get it right this time," he said. "We tried to be careful about not bowing to any cultural or ecclesiastical agenda."

The Committee on Bible Translation, which translated the NIV, admits the 2002 revision was a mistake.

That version included changes such as substituting "brothers and sisters" where the New Testament writers used "brothers."

Jay Phelan, a professor of theological studies in Chicago, says he worries the translators have bowed to pressure from conservatives in preparing the new edition.

"The whole idea that we want to make this constituency or that constituency unhappy is wrong," he said. "You don't do a translation that way. You don't say 'this will make the liberals unhappy' or 'this will make conservatives unhappy.' Your job is to produce the most accurate translation possible."

In 2009, the NIV accounted for 28 percent of Bibles sold in Christian bookstores, followed by the King James version at 16 percent.

What's your point, chucklehead?

You can't tell a book by it's cover?

And the sheep will bleat their submission,
Seeing the others as fools,
Not knowing nor even caring,
They've become no more than tools.

God sure does have trouble getting his "word" out, doesn't he?

You'd think a god that created all things could at least provide translations of "his" book that was understandable by all peoples.

Not all peoples want the Word of God correctly translated. You liberals, for instance. You and others want no restrictions on your licentious behavior and throw screaming fits when someone proposes to reign your excess in with legislation derived from God's Word. The reason you scum want the Ten Commandments removed from all public display is so you wont be ashamed of your perverted behavior and attitudes. That and you foolishly think you are winning by taking civilization backward with your progressive poison.

I've never put much faith in translators.

Unless you can read Hebrew, Aramaic or Greek, you will, like me, have to settle for translations. Comparing between translations and a Strong's concordance can prove slow going but will reward students. With the direction of the Spirit. If one wants it, it is available.

What language does God speak, and who translated that language into Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek?
