Kevin DeYoung, like John Piper, transitioned the local church he serves at from the NIV to the ESV a few years ago.  This booklet captures his thinking and reasoning around the change.  As with everything Kevin writes, it’s excellent.  Pastor Kevin is careful to point out that he is not tearing down other English translations.  He’s simply saying that out of all the options out there, the ESV, by his estimation, is the best translation for English speaking churches to use.  I’ll post a review of this when I’m finished.  It’s 32 pages long, so it will probably be sometime in October, knowing how I read.
