Encouraging Report from TGC International

ESV HeaderWe’ve had the privilege of partnering with The Gospel Coalition’s International Outreach on several projects in recent years, including work to distribute copies of the ESV Global Study Bible overseas in 2013. Through this partnership, Crossway and TGC International Outreach raised the funds to distribute more than 2,500 Global Study Bibles and distribute them to ministry leaders in 28 countries.

Bill Walsh of TGC International Outreach reports:

Our purpose was to make these available to our worldwide missions network with the goal of putting these study bibles into the hands of pastors primarily in the Global South who badly need them. We believe that God has uniquely blessed us with a truly global network of like-minded churches and missions who are able to put these bibles directly into the hands of church leaders who typically lack good access to biblical teaching and training.

Walsh goes on to share what recipients had to say about the ESV Global Study Bibles:

With the recent Typhoon, many pastors have lost everything, including their Bibles. We plan to send these ESV Global Study Bibles to pastors who have lost their Bibles in the flood.

Many promising Bible schools and students in Asia have no English Bibles to study from or if they do it may be as in Myanmar, where they have 13 students and only 5 Bibles (all different versions). These Bibles will have an impact all over Northern India and Northern Myanmar.

I expect these study Bibles to be the most significant resource for ongoing study and preparation for teaching.

Students in Cambodia are so eager to learn the bible and learn English; we hope these bibles will serve both purposes and have the students understand the deep meaning of the gospel.

Read the encouraging report in full.

One Million Copies of the ESV Study Bible

In this week’s press release, we were happy to announce that 1 million copies of the ESV Study Bible have now been sold and distributed worldwide. This milestone is particularly significant to us as proceeds from the Study Bible have provided more than $1.5 million to help underwrite Bible ministry distribution projects and the development of ESV Bible resources around the world – including support for the printing and distribution of more than 250,000 Chinese-English (ESV) Bibles in Mainland China.

Dr. Lane Dennis reflected on this milestone:

“It is astonishing to see what the Lord is accomplishing with the ESV Bible in general, and with the ESV Study Bible in particular. In addition to the 1 million ESV Study Bible milestone, more than 90 million ESV Bibles have now been distributed and accessed worldwide in all formats, including print, web and digital. The only appropriate response is to give all the glory to God – and to stand before the Lord in fear and trembling, with regard to the responsibility he has entrusted to us for the publication of God’s Word.”

May God be honored through the ESV Study Bible and may his church be strengthened.
