Two years ago I wrote… wait a sec. Two years ago? Was it really that long ago? Gadzooks. Time is going faster, I think. Let me start over.
Two year ago I wrote about the Gender Accurate Bible, and generally dismissed criticisms of the TNIV. It doesn’t say anything about a female god or any of that. It just tries to be more gender-neutral; when it says “brothers” but obviously means both men and women, the TNIV translates it as “brothers and sisters.” That sort of thing.
But CoffeeSwirls shines a little light on some of the problems the gender-neutral bible can have. Sometimes it really *does* just mean brothers.
I stand corrected.
