She Reads Truth Bible Dominates ECPA Bible
Bestseller List
Christian Standard Bible® Debuts
on Bible Translation Bestseller List

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 22, 2017) The Christian Standard Bible®translation debuted in April with powerful sales, landing at #4 on a national Bible Translation bestseller list (ECPA (1)). Dominating the bestseller list for individual Bibles was the much-anticipated She Reads Truth Bible – occupying 3 of the top 10 bestseller spots on the May list. She Reads Truth Bible is one of the first to publish exclusively in the Christian Standard Bible® translation. This successful launch by Holman Bibles also enjoyed strong sales for the Big Picture Interactive Kids Bible and its Christian Standard Bible® text Bibles.

The Christian Standard Bible translation has seen adoption by churches and pastors, with leading ministry voices endorsing the translation such as Kyle Idleman, David Platt, Tony Evans, Lisa Harper, Eric Mason, Kelly Minter, Robby Gallaty, Michael Card, She Reads Truth, and more.

“The Christian Standard Bible hits the sweet spot between fidelity and readability,” explains Trevin Wax, Bible and Reference Publisher for LifeWay Christian Resources. “We’re proud to have exemplary products available from day one, including the She Reads Truth Bible, the Big Picture Interactive Kids Bible, and a variety of text Bibles.”

The founders of She Reads Truth, Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams, chose the CSB translation exclusively for their She Reads Truth Bible. Various bindings of the new Bible filled the top three slots of the ECPA Bible bestseller list this month.

“Scripture is a glorious collision of beauty, goodness and truth, and we pray this Bible will represent that,” explains Amanda Bible Williams, Chief Content Officer of She Reads Truth.

Adds Raechel Myers, She Reads Truth CEO: “Our heart for the She Reads Truth Bible is not to add to or improve on the perfect and complete gift of Scripture God has given us. Rather, our heart is for everything we’ve included in this Bible to point back to God and His Word.”

The Christian Standard Bible®, a newly revised translation from Holman Bibles, prioritizes both accuracy and readability, making a trustworthy text for both pastors and church members. The CSB translation is available on all major Bible apps and portals. More new CSB Bible products will release this summer including the CSB Apologetics Study Bible, the CSB Apologetics Study Bible for Students and the CSB Read to Me Bible for children. In addition, David C. Cook chose the Christian Standard Bible as its featured translation in The Good Book project, which released this spring.
