Is the ESV Really A Conservative Translation?

The English Standard Version (ESV) Bible is becoming a de facto standard in American Reformed churches. Many pastors and others know that the ESV is a revision of the Revised Standard Version, which years ago was rejected by Bible believing Christians because of its treatment of Isaiah 7:14. But according to the powers that be, that and other problematic verses have been corrected in the English Standard Version. They also tell us that 95% of all the Bible translations agree, and that the differences that do exist “don’t amount to a hill of beans”.
