I just wanted to give you a few links here on a few recent things I’ve been involved with:
First, I did a Q&A Interview over at the Catholic Bible Talk blog about the ESV Catholic Edition. Here’s an excerpt:
A: The Translation Oversight Committee of the ESV has been very attentive to scholars’ and leaders’ concerns and suggestions, issuing a few lists of changes over the years since the first publication of the ESV in 2001. As long as Crossway continues to gather this committee, there is always the possibility for minor tweaks to the text. I would imagine the primary area where Catholic input would improve the translation is in the deuterocanonical books. I think it is important that the ESV text be regarded as stable, so I do not think we’ll see a major revision, but minor corrections and improvements. I think Catholics and Protestants will be pleasantly surprised by the common ground they share when they study this translation together.
Second, I appeared on Catholic Answers radio show a couple weeks ago:
Third, I’ve also appeared on the Formed Now! show at the Augustine Institute a few times recently (sorry! paywall):
- St. Teresa of Calcutta (September 4, 2020)
- 15 Years of the Augustine Institute
- Jesus and the Psalms (July 7, 2020)
- The ESV Translation (May 20, 2020)
- The Story of the Old Testament (June 25, 2020)
Fourth, I put together a Short Course on the Old Testament, which is housed in the Augustine Institute Short Course platform. The link to my particular course is here: https://courses.augustineinstitute.org/courses/old-testament
Fifth, I have had a few posts go up at Faith and Culture, the Augustine Institute’s journal:
It looks like I’ve been busier than I thought I was. I have a lot of other things cooking right now, but nothing ready to serve up just yet. I hope to have some more things to share with you in the not-too-distant future. Until then, happy Bible reading!
