I've noticed something interesting about the ESV...

    I've noticed something about the ESV: it's often endorsed by members of mainline Protestant denominations, and adherents of Reformed Theology.

    Any thoughts on why that's the case?

    Rev. 13:8

    Go compare the ESV with just about any other translation as to when names are written in the Lamb's book of Life.

    Several verses are mistranslated so as to better fit with Calvinist doctrine, is in MHO the reason.

    Actually, those verses are really being translated correctly, as they give to us the intended meaning!
