On November 19, 2014 in San Diego during the Evangelical Theological Society’s annual meeting, Biblica, the Committee on Bible Translation, and Zondervan presented “The NIV 50th Anniversary Dinner and Program: Celebrating the Commissioning of the NIV.”
At the event Doug Moo, chair of the Committee on Bible Translation, spoke about the NIV. Here’s what he said (available as a free PDF):
Douglas J. Moo. We Still Don’t Get It: Evangelicals and Bible Translation Fifty Years after James Barr. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2014. 14 pp.
Matthew S. Harmon and Jay E. Smith, eds. Studies in the Pauline Epistles: Essays in Honor of Douglas J. Moo. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2014. 311 pp.
Matt Harmon wrote about it the next day and shared what he said when he presented the volume to Doug.
Here’s a video of the surprise presentation (which I enjoyed witnessing):
I thank God for Doug Moo. Not only has Doug helped me better understand God’s word; he models theological humility.
