The translators of the other version took a different approach. This refers to the retaining of theological terminologywords like grace, faith, justification, sanctification, redemption, regeneration, reconciliation, and propitiation. With the TNIV, the translation reached new heights in this respect: excellent scholars worked on it.

The preface to the ESV claims that "each word and phrase in the ESV has been carefully weighed against the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, to ensure the fullest accuracy and clarity and to avoid under-translating or overlooking any nuance of the original text."

As was pointed out earlier, the RSV had removed words like propitiation from the Bible. So, you have the ESV which was done by a pretty decent group of evangelical scholars but who were standing on the shoulders of giants, and the NIV which was done by a multitude of scholars (and far more than really should have been used for a Bible translation), launching out on their own.
