I'm trying to reestablish my presence on the "blogosphere" (whatever that is). A little while back, I used to blog quite regularly, but several months ago, I kinda ran out of steam. Anyhoo...
I really have to organize my Bible collection. I won't post a picture of our office/library, but suffice it to say that there are stacks of books (including Bibles) all over the place. I'm not sure how up to date my Bible collection spreadsheet is, as I decided to get rid of a few volumes to make some more space. I'm pretty sure I still have well over 200 in my collection, but said collection is a MESS. So, first item on my to-do list: tame the beast!
Meanwhile, some time this year the CEB Study Bible is supposed to be released, so I'll be curious to see how that turns out. We'll see if they can give the NIV, ESV, NLT and HCSB folks a run for their money.
Just to kick things off again on this blog, I'm including the most recent Bible Bestsellers chart from Christian Booksellers Association below:
Sadly, I see that the above mentioned CEB has dropped off the list completely! And they had been doing so well last time I checked (over four months ago...). I don't think any translation in the near future is going to knock the NIV out of its #1 spot. And I'll be darned if that KJV doesn't keep on selling like hotcakes!
So if anyone's still reading this blog, thanks. If not...well, there's got to be some way to promote it. Feel free to comment.
