Using the Logos Bible Software Text Comparison Tool, Randy's research assistant examined the KJV, NASB, ESV, and NLT texts of Genesis 1, Psalm 1, Ezekiel 36, Matthew 2, Romans 8 and Revelation 21. The results show an average variation of 30% from the KJV by the NASB and 32% by the ESV, meaning a correspondence of 70% and 68% respectively.
Note from Randy Alcorn: If you’re new to our website, please ignore this. We are just glad to have you here! For our regulars, giving to EPM is significantly down this year, over 39% compared to previous years, which means more has been going out of our account than coming in. If you feel led by God to support us, we would greatly appreciate any gifts to our general fund. We aren’t worried, as God has faithfully provided for our ministry for 33 years. But if you’ve found our resources to be helpful, we invite you to consider making a one-time or recurring gift to help fund our eternity-shaping work.
Jesus said, “Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt. 10:8). It’s our joy to share freely what God has so graciously entrusted to us. We are here to serve everyone without cost, so please do not feel pressured to give!
