To discuss the 2011 report from the Committee to Propose a Combined CRC/Reformed Church in America Translation of the Three Reformed Standards, post your comments here.
The three reformed standards addressed in the report are the Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism, and Canons of Dort. The need to do this arose out of the planning for a bi-denominational hymnal, during which it was noted that the RCA and CRC have differing versions of the confessions.
Here is a brief look excerpt from the report:
“The committee decided that it would not undertake a totally new translation but work from the present translations in the two denominations. However, where there were discrepancies, the committee consulted the original languages to resolve textual differences,” says the report.
