We are so excited to announce that our favorite pastor/yogi is releasing a new edition of the Bible, The Rob Bell Standard Version (RBSV), which you can find in bookstores nationwide on Monday. Rob has finally broken free from the shackles of “scholarship” and given us, in his words, “a nimble exegesis that seeks to correct the wrongs that fundamentalists have done to the bible the past 2000 years.”
A few example translations can be seen below:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16 NIV
A decent translation to be sure, but isn’t this much better?
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Rob, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” -John 3:16 RBSV
