Kevin Sam on the NIV and Gender-Inclusive Language

All the rage among the biblio-blogs recently seems to be discussion on gendered language in the NIV.

I think Kevin Sam has it right:

If we are being gender-inclusive only for the sake of being neutral even if the speaker’s intention was directed to men, then I want nothing of it.  But if it was the speaker’s original intention to speak to both men and women, then “Yes!  I’m all for the changes in the updated NIV 2011.

You can read the rest here at his blog.

Good thing there is no such thing a gender neutrality.

I would also suggest you check out Kevin’s fair comparison of the NRSV, ESV, and NASB.
