A New Year, A New LSB Project Update! (January 2023)

Greetings from Southern California!

The beginning of 2023 has kicked off with a surprisingly busy January. Ongoing projects continue and new projects have begun! Team 316 thanks Yahweh for His provision and guidance!

The Giant Print Reference features include:

  • 13-point font, with 10-point cross references and footnotes
  • Over 95,000 cross references and over 14,000 footnotes
  • Concordance with over 16,000 references
  • 2-column paragraph format 
  • Line matched by 2K Denmark 
  • 1,984 pages
  • 32GSM paper
  • 8 full-color maps
  • Printed and bound in Korea

Preorders for the Giant Print Reference edition will open in March 2023, with the tentative arrival of inventory in June. 



The LSB Compact edition typesetting has begun and is anticipated to arrive this summer. More information on preorders, features, etc. will be coming before Easter. 

We have added sample pages of these layouts in our LSB Sample Layout Pack on our free resources page. 


This month, we have also enjoyed in-person visits from our printer representatives from South Korea and the Netherlands to discuss our reprints and new projects for 2023. 

We look forward to continuing to build stronger relationships with our printer partners to produce high quality editions of the LSB.

Speaker, teacher and author Justin Peters has begun a new project: Daily Bible Readings, featuring the LSB that we are sure will enrich the lives of those who subscribe to listen daily. Watch his video announcement to learn more:

For general permission to quote the LSB in media and publications, please read through the guidelines HERE.

If your request exceeds the general permission, please see the link HERE.


The Script Tagger web tool from Blue Letter Bible allows websites to have Bible verse references display the LSB text when hovered over. This is especially helpful for churches. The instructions to implement it on your website are provided HERE.



If your church would like to use the LSB or Steadfast Bible logo for any non-sale church slides, events, etc. please email our team at with the subject line: CHURCH LOGO PACK. Our team will send through the ZIP file with the pre-chosen logos. 



Our LSB 35/35 Program for churches* is designed to help congregations using the LSB by offering a substantial discount on a single bulk order of various styles and bindings.

In 2022 we introduced several new formats and as the LSB product family expands upon new editions releasing, this program will expand too. Churches may chose to use this program as a fundraiser as well. 

Here Is How It Works: 

Select LSB Bibles are available for 35% off MSRP on single orders of 35 complete Bibles or more. Please email for more details and to request a current form with the available selections.

*This program is only available to churches. Please use your church email address and include your website and the address of your church.



The digital provider list on the LSB website continues to expand. The newest provider to add the LSB is

This list is a great resource to share with others who want to sample the LSB for free through one of the many digital providers’ platforms.


The LSB companion title, The Handbook for Praying Scripture by Dr. William Varner is something we have been enjoying in our morning prayer time at 316.

We encourage you to take a closer look at the sample, now available in our Free Resources section. 

The Kindle edition is being worked on and we hope to have it available by the end of February. Due to the limitations of Kindle, the formatting will not be the same, so we encourage people to consider purchasing the print edition.


Just a few days ago, our VP had an opportunity to present to LSB translation team members Abner Chou, William Varner and Jason Beals, the Inside Column Reference edition during a filming session for the translation.

We aim to release more video content before Shepherds’ Conference (March 7-9). If you are planning on attending, please come by and say "HI!" in the booktent.
