In the course of the last week, I've had the opportunity to read and learn a fair amount about the concept of gender-inclusive language in Bible translation. Here are a few references:
- "The Debate Over Gender Inclusive Language" by D.A. Carson. Carson offers many interesting points on the topic.
- Mark Strauss has a similar undertaking.
- The New York Times has an interesting article on the search for an "all purpose pronoun." It turns out that "he" has not always been the standard for generic singular pronouns in English.
