Do Conservative Bible Colleges also use the NRSV?

    The NRSV is pretty much required for liberal colleges. Is it the same for conservative ones?

    I am only acquainted with a handful of conservative schools but most use the King James for class work but also use ASV or NASB.

    What do you mean by the conservative ones? Some examples might be helpful.

    I will say that in my time between a rather conservative undergrad, fairly conservative seminary, and ivy league divinity school the NRSV was spoken against at the first, not really welcomed at the second, and used extensively at the third.

    Thanks for the reply. I suppose my statement in the second paragraph would stand then.
