ESV Gospel Transformation Bible Now Available

The ESV Gospel Transformation Bible is now available from Crossway.org, other online retailers, and in bookstores.

The best way to learn more about the Gospel Transformation Bible is to get a feel for it yourself by downloading the digital sampler or the full book of Jeremiah. We also encourage you to watch the below video introduction to the project, along with an interview with the Bible’s general editor, Dr. Bryan Chapell.

We pray this is a powerful resource for the building up of God’s church. May he use it for his glory!

Video: Crazy Busy in Chicago

Lots of people are crazy busy. And Chicagoans are no exception.

Crazy Busy FlyerThat’s why a team of Crossway employees headed down to Chitown two days ago with the real-life icon from the cover of Kevin DeYoung’s most recent book, Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book about a (Really) Big Problem.

That’s right, our bold and daring coworker, Kevin Lipp, courageously donned a black leotard and a giant exclamation point head for the sake of the cause.

Standing outside Ogilvie Transportation Center, we said good morning to hundreds of sleepy commuters while handing out high-fives, corny jokes, and Starbucks VIA packets to those who were too busy to stop for coffee.

Experience the joy of free coffee and a guy in a funny suit in the short video below:
