Two small updates on my code snippet collections. Permalink Redirect 0.8.4 I have updated Permalink Redirect plugin to 0.8.4. The main functionality of this plugin has been replaced by WordPress’ redirect_canonical() function since WP 2.3, but somehow some people are still using this plugin for its remaining functions (permalink structure changes, arbitrary path redirect, etc). [...]
ESV Daily Verse is now on Twitter — what a great use of hype of the year which I still have not figured out what is good for! If you add “esvdaily” as someone you want to “follow”, you’ll get daily verses on your Twitter update at around the same time everyday! Except Twitter can [...]
ESV Blog: Collaborative Bible Study Materials. From the article — “The barriers to entry for managing a project of this scale have fallen so far that anyone with both passion and commitment can produce and make available something potentially helpful to Christians everywhere.” Yes, I don’t deny the fact that the technical barriers were long [...]
ESV Blog responded their experience of getting dugg in the weekend. Quite an insightful post on Christian blogs, as well as blogs written by Christians. Even if you don’t consider your blog a ministry, it serves as one. And, as we found out, you never know when one of your posts will become popular or [...]
Saw it on Victor’s blog that Bible Gateway has released new Bible reading plans — you can either read through the whole Bible systematically in 365 days, or read through key passages in 61 or 121 days. That reminded me a blog post from ESV Blog a few days ago. Their one-year reading plan is [...]
Stephen from ESV.org researched the “Origin of Red-Letter Bibles”, i.e. Jesus’ words printed in red. I too always wondered where they came about. I actually liked red-letter Bibles. Not because these parts are more God-breathed than the rest (though some think they are), but I just found it sometimes easier to search for a particular [...]
ESV Blog is an excellent resource to those who enjoy reading their English Standard Version Bible, and for the last month or so they ran series of blog entries on translators answering the questions from the readers. Very good read. Again, which Greek text source is used by ESV has been asked. Bill Mounce answered [...]
ESV/Good News publisher has just announced an update to their online audio version on their blogsite, and it allows you to listen to segments of a chapter. Audio link is now also part of their search results. Recent version of RealPlayer is required however, as somehow RTSP does not work with “Real Alternative”.
ESV English-Greek Reverse Interlinear New Testament, published by the Good News & Crossway, will be released this October, that features ESV English text with Greek underneth. It would be useful for someone who does not read Greek (i.e. me) to pick up the links. A bit pricy though, pre-selling at USD$49.95.
English Standard Version Bible is having its own blog site. Apparently they are powered by WordPress as well. And now they are giving their Bible away for those who link to them int their blogroll.
My long waited NCV-ESV Bible has finally arrived! The first time I heard about it was from an ICQ conversation with Joel from Singapore last April. It was actually quite exciting to hear a publisher combining probably two of the finest translation to date – New Chinese Version 新譯本 and English Standard Version – into [...]
This morning the sermon at International Unichurch, the passage preached was Ecclesiastes 4-6. Simon and Jieni were the Bible readers for that passage, and they encountered an interesting differences between ESV “versions“. Here is an extract of Ecclesiastes 5:3 from the English Standard Version bible.
I first saw it on Glenn Slaven‘s blogsite, that the publisher of the English Standard Version Bible, Good News Publisher, is now providing RSS feed for ESV. It provides two kinds of feed – verse of the day as well as querying, and RSS 2 result is returned. Congratulation goes to GNP for adding more [...]
The English Standard Version Bible has been released in late 2001, and we bought the Crossway one pretty much straight afterwards when they landed Australia. However, I have been sharing the ESV with Vivian my wife for the last year since we have only bought one, and I still spent most of my time reading [...]
I have learnt something from Phillp Jensen’s talk last night about the differences between the ESVand NIV. Phillip used this example to show the superiority of the English Standard Version, because it helps you to work out some meaning of the original text where it is difficult or impossible with the New International Version. Phillip [...]
