Abstract
This dissertation demonstrates that Formal Equivelence English Bible versions are better suited for preaching according to the text-driven model. This paper evaluates the renditions of Psalms 1 and 2, Timothy 2:17 in the GNB, NIV, NLT, NKJV, NASB, and ESV. The introduction determines the ministry need for such a project. Chapter 1 defines concepts and introduces the Pulpit Suitability test, the measure by which the sample passages are evaluated. Chapter 2 determines the substance, structure, and spirit of the sample passages. The remaining chapters assign a suitability value to each version. The highest ranking versions receive a more favorable degree of adequacy for preaching.
