Mac Users and ESV Readers

by on August 29, 2008

A comment by Mark Warnock got me thinking… ESV readers are a lot like Mac users. (BTW, I’m both)


The author of this post is noted above. and were created by Ryan Burns. He is currently on staff at Redemption Hill Church in Richmond, VA, and recently launched a site to help people find Seminary Scholarships and anther site to help people find Church Jobs. He also writes about his experiences doing GORUCK events on his hobby blog.



I can’t say I disagree with you. I’ve noticed some comments around the web lately that would substantiate your comment. If you like the interview with Mark, be sure to check out the interview I did with Ryan a few weeks ago.

From the perspective of a PC user and NIV reader….

Yeah. You’re exactly right.

Hmm. Is it arrogance? Insecurity? A penchant for being in the minority? Contempt for the bandwagon? Or just the raw unfading enthusiasm of a new convert?

I think there might be a little truth to all the above Mark. Along with that, I think there is something to the fact of finding a product that is something you truly love. I really love using my mac and I really love the ESV. Therefore I am a brand advocate for both… but that’s just one guy.

I think something that is interesting is that you don’t see that same kind of zeal for other other products like windows or niv. I think there is something about the experience that strikes within a person and causes them to really get excited. The mac was the first computer I got really excited about and the ESV was the first translation that I got excited about.

Just my thoughts…
