ICRS Bible Translation & Paraphrase Press Conference

According to CNN Belief Blog, “people are still intensely curious about the Bible, its meaning, and its origins.” In a blog post June 8, CNN religion editor Dan Gilgoff said, “More than any other book in the Western tradition (with the Quran being the lone exception), the Bible still fascinates us. And it still feeds our most heated debates.” Gallop surveys show 92% of Americans believe in God, and 78% believe the Bible is either the actual word of God to be taken literally or believe the Bible to be inspired by the word of God.
