  1. Hi Chris,
    Which of the modern translations of the Bible would you recmoment most. I’m currently using the ESV.

    1. Hi Leslie. The ESV is a good translation although it leans toward Calvinist doctrine in some parts and is somewhat stilted in others – but a good translation nevertheless. The Holman Christian Standard Bible is also aa good translation and I use it a fair amount. My favourite is and has been for a long time, the New International Version 1983 edition. Later releases and variants of the NIV are mainly sound but they compromise clarity in several instances by using gender-neutral language. I cannot recommend the later editions, but I do recommend the 1983 edition. A 4th translation that I use from time to time is the New Living Translation because of its readability and ability to make clear what, in some cases, other translations make complex.

About Me

My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I  earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.

Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.

I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus

I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar.
