The Bible I will begin teaching out of beginning in January 2012.

Beginning in January 2012 I will be changing the Bible I teach from on Sunday mornings. The version of the Bible I have been teaching out of is the 1984 version of the NIV.  This year, the publishers of the NIV changed to an updated version which is different than what I have been using.  Therefore, I need to change the Bible I am teaching out of.

While I think that the updated NIV is good, over the last few years I have read more and more from the ESV (English Standard Version) and I have really enjoyed it.  So beginning in January 2012 I will be teaching out of the ESV translation of the Bible.

You can find out more about the ESV at:

Here is the Bible that I have:

If you are looking for an ESV study Bible I would recommend these:

1)  The Ryrie ESV Study Bible that you can find here:


2)  The MacArthur ESV Study Bible that you can find here:


If you are interested in a longer explanation of this transition, Mark Driscoll wrote an 18 page explanation of the reasons that he made this change that is available at:
