Tullian Tchividjian writes: As I consider the last six months and especially this upcoming Sunday and how kind God has been to convince me that everything minus Jesus equals nothing, but Jesus plus nothing equals everything, I am reminded of my grandmother who passed away in June She reveled in the wrecking power of the gospel day in and day out.
She lived life like she had nothing to lose because she knew that, in Christ, she had nothing to lose!
This enabled her to live with great freedom, fearlessness, and unbounded courage. For many, many years I have begged God to make me like her— to give me a sharp mind, a soft heart, and a steel spine like he gave her. I can only hope and pray that as God continues to strip me of everything but Him, I would become more like her. Unevangelized people are unconverted individuals in places where there are established churches. Unreached peoples are those that live in regions where there are no churches and no access to the evangelical gospel in their culture. Here it is again — 9 out of 10 Christian missionaries that go cross-cultural are still going to reached places!
When relationships are built around the truths of the gospel—the truth that we are walking in light even though we are still sinners in need of cleansing by his blood—we can be free from feelings of inferiority and the demanding spirit that is born of pride.
We can pursue relationships without fear of being discovered as the sinners we are. This kind of open relationship rests solely on the realities of the gospel. We are more sinful and flawed than we ever dared believe, and so is everyone we know. We can remember the circumstances under which we have been forgiven, and we can forgive in the same way. We can seek our relationships with others because we know that we have been sought out by him and that he is carrying us all on his shoulders. Yes, he is that strong! But I have another desire that informs what I'm announcing today: I want to encourage Christians to get involved in the arts--in particular, film.
At different times and different ways I've done what I could to encourage young filmmakers to hone their gifts and use film to influence the world for Christ. So I'm combining my need for promotional videos with my desire to make an investment in Christian filmmakers.
And I'm doing this in the form of a contest. Between Two Worlds.

Given that Bible translations are back in the news, I've given some thought to a blog post offering some introductory thoughts on translation differences and their importance.
We should give deep thanks to God for the translation of the Bible into English. We are very blessed to have the Word of God in our language.
Other languages do not yet! Our disagreements over Bible translations should not obscure our gratitude for the gift of what we have. As John Piper notes: I would rather have people read any translation of the Bible—no matter how weak—than to read no translation of the Bible. If there could be only one translation in English, I would rather it be my least favorite than that there be none.
God uses every version to bless people and save people. We should give deep thanks to God for those who have labored to translate the Bible into English. We rarely stop to ponder the countless hours that scholars have labored to study the original languages and then worked in committee in order to produce the translations that we have today.
His heart for God and for people energizes his ministry and this book. For serious study, readers need a translation that is more transparent to the "otherness" of Scripture. Lulu, a formally trained jazz vocalist with a musical theatre background, is one complete and unexpected package. It's an engaging story marked by unsurpassed prose and offering a clear lesson — precisely the kind of literature children deserve need! Note that the NLT is solidly on the "thought for thought" side of the continuum. They use it to decorate his old boat.
We may disagree with their decisions here or there, or disagree across the board with the translation philosophy employed, but we must recognize that these men and women are seeking to glorify God and to serve Bible readers by aiming to reflect the original meaning and to connect with people today. When viewing "translation continuum" charts, it is helpful to be aware of the how the issue is being framed and the philosophies defined.
It is instructive to notice what publishers are doing when they seek to present their understanding of how translations differ. If you're ever looking at a chart, you can discern almost instantly which publisher is behind it: their translation is always right in the middle, occupying the "golden mean," "the balanced, mediating position. For example, the following diagram is from Zondervan's website publisher of the NIV and the TNIV : On the left-hand side you have "word for word" translations, represented on the extreme side by interlinears.
On the right hand side you have "thought for thought" translations, represented by The Message. Note that the NLT is solidly on the "thought for thought" side of the continuum. But Tyndale, the publisher of the NLT, has a somewhat similar continuum. The difference is that the "thought for thought" category has moved to the center golden mean; balanced, mediating position and the extreme on the right still The Message is now labeled "paraphrase.
For Zondervan, the archetypal "thought for thought translation" is The Message, whereas Tyndale places the NLT in that category and puts The Message into the "paraphrase" category. We should be cautious in how we use the word "literal. It is extremely commonplace for a preacher to say that term X is "literally" A. What we are seeking in interpretation is an author's communicative intention in using particular words in particular ways in particular contexts.
A good lexicon provides readers with a range of words in the receptor language that correspond with, or denote, the term in the source language. But merely looking up term X in the lexicon and seeing the verbal equivalent A does not mean we should say that "X is literally A. Translation from one language to another requires a linguistic change: the grammatical form of the source language must be reworked and decoded into the receptor language. The difference in translation philosophy and practice comes about, in part, based upon the degree to which the translators seek to go beyond this linguistic requirement in order to provide further clarification.
Remembering that we are speaking in terms of levels, not black-and-white absolutes, translation approaches differ on the following issues and more : the degree to which interpretive decisions are made for the reader, or left for the reader to decide the degree to which ambiguities are resolved for the reader, or left for the reader to resolve the degree to which implicit information is made explicit for the reader, or left implicit for the reader to discover the degree to which images and figures are decoded for the reader, or left for the reader to interpret the degree to which important repetitions of words are removed, or retained the degree to which form and meaning are separated, or seen as essentially inseparable the degree to which immediate intelligibility is seen as a high priority, or seen as less important than other matters What is an essentially literal, or transparent, translation?
