In my other life, I am the editor of Faithlife’s Bible Study Magazine, and one of my first acts as editor was to give myself a column: “Word Nerd: Language and the Bible.” They said I could. I also turn all the columns—plus a few that aren’t in print—into YouTube...

Review: The Inclusive Language Debate by D.A. Carson

The Inclusive Language Debate: A Plea for Realism, by D.A. Carson (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1998). Don Carson's prose is elegant, and his pace is perfect. He briskly moves the reader through a narrative of the conflict among evangelical Christians over so-called...

Mark Driscoll Makes It into the OED

Look who I discovered being cited in the august OED… I wish I knew more about the work of OED lexicographers, my heroes. I don't know, for example, how OED editors find/choose their citation sources. It's just that beyond Shakespeare and various editions of the Bible,...

    Hi Dr. Ward. I just finished reading your new book “Authorized.” You may remember me as one of the three young men from the Master’s Chorale you invited to rehearse and perform barbershop tags in a coffee shop somewhere in the Pacific Northwest last May. 🙂 The book was excellent. I’ve been doing a lot of reading and thinking on the subject of Bible translation lately, and your book hit a sweet spot with its emphasis on using *all* of them. My search for “the one” has led me back time and again to the thought that there isn’t one; reading such a delightful argument and summary of why that is the case, framed as it was in the use and misuse of the KJV, was wonderful and enlightening, and I will gladly commend the book to others. I’m slotted to speak to my (very small) church about this subject next Sunday and Lord willing I hope to impress upon our people the same point that you made. Thanks again. Looking forward to checking out some of your other books as well.
