Luther Would Be Proud

Conservative Protestant Christians in the market for a study Bible should consider the new Lutheran Study Bible just released by Concordia Publishing House, which uses the formal-equivalent English Standard Version translation. It’s impressively produced, with easily readable type for a work of its size and density; its notes are copious but not quite as overwhelming as those in the excellent ESV Study Bible published last year. (N.B.: Please do not confuse this new Lutheran version from Concordia with the one published under the same title by Augsburg Fortress earlier this year. The Augsburg Fortress edition is very skimpy in the help it gives the reader; and it uses the New Revised Standard Version translation, which, while it is generally accurate and at least somewhat formal-equivalent in its philosophy, sometimes engages in purposeful and clunky mistranslations in order to conform to canons of political correctness.)

During a CNN town hall on gun control, a furious crowd of Americans jeered at two conservatives, Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch, who stood in defense of the Second ... Read More
