I'm reading N.T. Wright's "Justification" and I can keep quoting stuff I like, but this one, wow!
In general, the book is a reply to a book John Piper wrote: "The Future of Justification: A Response to N. T. Wright" (Crossway 2007).
Wright shares how he had initially welcomed and even recommended the NIV. But then:
Disillusionment set in over the next two years, as I lectured verse by verse through several of Paulís letters, not least Galatians and Romans. Again and again, with the Greek text in front of me and the NIV beside it, I discovered that the translators had had another principle, considerably higher than the stated one: to make sure that Paul should say what the broadly Protestant and evangelical tradition said he said. I do not know what version of scripture they use at Dr Piperís church. But I do know that if a church only, or mainly, relies on the NIV it will, quite simply, never understand what Paul was talking about.
