Hello
I recently read some disparaging comments re a Bible translation I have been using for many years “The Living Bible”. I appreciate that the language is 40+ years old and I try my best to change the sexist language!
So I wonder can anyone recommend a Bible translation which would be more in keeping with the views of Progressive Christians- and I appreciate there are many divergent views amongst us as Progressive Christians!
Thanks for your help

Dear Paul

Most liberal churches with a desire to reduce sexist language will use the NRSV version of the Bible, which made a conscious effort to reduce masculine language where reasonable. It has intellectual respectability and widespread usage.
