CBA Bible Rankings for July
No, not the Catholic Biblical Association, but the Christian Booksellers Association. Each month the Christian Booksellers Association publishes a list of their top ten Bibles by sales and units sold. This list only accounts for those Christian bookstores associated with the CBA, thus excluding any Catholic bookstores, secular bookstores, or places like Amazon.com. I like providing a link to the monthly ranking every once in a while, in order that we can get a small glimpse as to which Bibles are being purchased by our Protestant brothers and sisters. You can view the latest CBA rankings for Bible translation here. It is interesting to note that even with all the controversy surrounding it, the NIV continues to be #1 in this ranking, well ahead of the ESV.
