  1. Update - Permalink Redirect and ESVPopup

    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 The main functionality of this plugin has been replaced by WordPress' redirect_canonical() function since WP 2.3, but somehow some people are still using this plugin for its remaining functions (permalink structure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). 0.8.4 fixes an issue with arbitrary path redirect when the old path is now producing 404. It has also overwritten the wp_redirect function (taken from WP 2.5) so 301 redirect works properly on Lighty/Nginx setups.

    ESVPopup 1.4

    Don't you love browser incompatibility?! While everyone is trying to crack Acid3, I am still trying to figure out why event.clientX on Safari is different from all the other browsers.

    Anyway. ESVPopup 1.4 should work with Safari 3.0.x now.

    Btw, this blog has also been upgraded to WordPress 2.5. Nice new dashboard and so far everything works. Finger crossed.

  2. Collaborative Bible Study Material

    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 gone. There are plenty of free Wiki and collaboration software out there. However, organising a community and begging people to lift up their fingers to contribute has always been the more difficult part. Each fellowship in FOCUS has been writing Bible study material over the years, but may I ask "where is the archive?" that can be potentially helpful to Christians everywhere?

  3. ESV Blog Responding Being Dugg

    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 …
  4. Bible Reading Plans from Bible Gateway and Good News Publisher

    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 …
  5. Where did the red-letter Bibles come from?

    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 …
  6. ESV, KJC, CUV and Textus Receptus

    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 …
  7. Listening to ESV online

    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 …
  8. ESV Reverse Interlinear

    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 …
  9. ESV Blog

    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.
  10. NCV-ESV Bible by Worldwide Bible Society

    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 …
  11. Is it 'Business' or 'Busyness'?

    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. For a dream comes …
  12. English Standard Version Now Has RSS Feed

    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 …
  13. My New English Standard Version Bible

    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 …
  14. English Standard Version Comparison

    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 …
  15. English Standard Version Jokes

    In MYC, Rod ran a little competition, requesting all the creative phrases and essays around ESV. My favourite goes something like this. A while ago was the RSV, which is the Real Simple Version. However, it was not easy to read so here comes the NIV, the Non-Intellecture Version. But …
