High Demand for New WBS Study Edition Bible

Written on April 3, 2017

“We’re so impressed with the new WBS Bible!”

That’s the kind of repeated response we’re getting since we recently released the all-new WBS Study Edition Bible (English Standard Version). The Bible is the culmination of two years of planning and content creation that supplements the 2016 text edition of the English Standard Version (ESV) published by Crossway.

The WBS Study Edition Bible serves multiple functions. First, it is an attractive, durable, inexpensive Bible available for purchase as pew Bibles and gifts for seekers, youth, new Christians, family, friends and personal use. Second, it is a Bible that some 8,000 everyday Christians who are WBS Study Helpers can provide as gifts for proven WBS students. Third, it is part of WBS’ Free Bible Incentive Program wherein a donor’s gift of merely $5 connects a WBS student with a WBS Study Helper and provides the Bible for no cost to the student. Finally, the Bible includes Study Helps that encourage readers to continue personal study, including with WBS’ Bible lessons.

According to WBS’ President, John Reese, “This Bible evidently fills an important need among churches of Christ. Christians can be confident that the Helps in the Study Edition faithfully represent the principles and practices of New Testament Christianity—including biblical faith, baptism and unity. The ESV is also an excellent literal translation in modern English.”

John noted that sales of the Bible are approaching 13,000 after only two full months. “And we are fulfilling a special order of 20,000 by an international evangelistic ministry. Not only have we accelerated our print schedule [from 2018], we have tripled our original quantity.”

The WBS Study Edition Bible provides a whole lot for little cost. A Bible sells for only $5 each (plus shipping) and for as low as $3.50 for volume orders. To purchase a Bible, go to www.worldbibleschool.net/bible. To learn more about the Free Bible Incentive Program for your WBS students, go to www.worldbibleschool.net/incentive.

 

 

Interpretation Principles Part 2 of 2

One of the reasons that many people believe that the Bible has contradictions is because they don’t really know what a contradiction is. The law of contradiction states: “Nothing can both be and not be.” In the second part of “Interpretation Principles”, Eric Lyons discusses how the careful Bible student can apply the principles in their Bible study to get an accurate view of the Bible.

Interpretation Principles Part 1 of 2

Many Bible skeptics have claimed that the Bible writers made mistakes, and therefore the Bible cannot be true. Does the Bible contradict itself? When studying the Bible there are some very important principles of interpretation that good Bible students must apply if they are to be fair with what the Bible writers wrote. Join Eric Lyons as he presents these principles in the first part of a two part lesson.

Why a Reliable Bible Matters

 

Many people reject God’s Word because they claim that the Bible writers made a number of errors. Could we have a book from God that contains one or more mistakes and errors? How does this affect one’s faith in God? Join Eric Lyons as he examines this topic about why the reliability of the Bible matters.
