About Why Our Church Switched to the ESV

A few years into his current pastorate, Kevin DeYoung’s church needed to replace its well-worn pew Bibles. DeYoung wrote to his congregation, outlining seven reasons why he preferred the English Standard Version (ESV) and proposed its adoption. His letter forms the basis of this brief booklet.
