In the early 1990's, scholars and pastors felt the need for a Bible version that can ride with the current language without compromising its faithfulness to the original texts. Dr. Lane T. Dennis along with a translation committee under the blessing of National Council of Churches did a 6% revision of the 1971 RSV edition taking into consideration idiom, syntax, and grammar.
Another minor revision happened in 2007 and later on in 2011 the most recent update was made for the ESV.
Oxford University Press included Biblical apocrypha in 2009 but this is not the Catholic apocrypha but the deuterocanonical books.
Currently, the English Standard Version has been widely used by seminaries, Bible schools, scholars, clergies, and Evangelical denominations.
Precision in wording of the original texts and preserving the style of each Bible writer are the distinct quality of the English Standard Version.
