We at Crosswalk.com recognise the importance in being educated on issues that are of importance to the Church. One issue that has been raging lately is the one surrounding Zondervan’s new Bible, the Today’s New International Version or TNIV. We’ve had three Chat events addressing this issue. They were:
- TNIV Chat with Rev. Tim Bayly
- TNIV in Focus with Dr. Mark Strauss
- TNIV Round Table with Dr. Ron Youngblood, Dr. Mark Strauss, Dr. Wayne Grudem and Rev. Tim Bayly
In an effort to inform the Christian Community we are launching our first ever moderated Forums discussion, the TNIV Feature Forum. (If you would like to be considered to be a participant please email email@example.com with tnivpart in the subject heading. Please include any qualifications you have regarding your credibility on this topic. The number of participants will be limited so please do not be offended if you are not selected.) In this discussion we’ll be asking selected participants questions and facilitating their discussion on the issue. If you have a question you would like us to consider asking please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with tnivq in the subject heading.)
If you would like to discuss the responses by our participants we encourage and invite you to do so in the TNIV Open Forum.
The current participants are:
