On May 21, 2002, Dr. Wayne Grudem of Phoenix Seminary and Dr. Mark Strauss of Bethel Seminary West (San Diego) debated the topic The TNIV: A Bible Translation for Today or Political Movement for Tomorrow. The debate was sponsored by FaithandValues.com which has a webpage on the debate with links to its audio and a transcript. You can also read about the debate at OnePlace.com. You can access the audio of the debate, section by section, from that webpage. A link to the audio of that debate is also found on a webpage of the CBMW, which has been adamantly opposed to the TNIV. Thank you to Concordia University for hosting the debate.
We hope to have future posts which excerpt parts of the debate. It is important that the truth about the TNIV be told. There have been far too many untrue accusations against the TNIV spread by radio, in Christian magazines, and on the Internet. Please keep visiting us at this blog while we try to set the record straight. And feel welcome to help us do so yourself with comments to our blog posts.
