    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)--Six years after the evangelical world debated the merits and appropriateness of making Bible translations more gender inclusive for words dealing with people, the divide is becoming evident once again.

Zondervan later discontinued the TNIV (Today's New International Version). Critics said the TNIV's gender inclusivism went so far that it changed the core meaning of passages.
