May LSB Project Update! Sneak Peek!

May LSB Project Update! Sneak Peek!

To convey the heart of the Apostle Paul - Greet every saint in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:21a). We greet you!
This month we wanted to provide some behind-the-scenes pictures of work in progress.


The file for the LSB Compact has gone to the printer, paper is ordered and we have developed some exciting new cover designs. We will have edge-lined goatskin and cowhide, paste-down cowhide and faux leather editions at a variety of price points. The same high-quality 28 GSM paper will be used in each edition. We don’t have images of all our design choices, but here is a sneak peek at the direction we are headed with some of them…
The LSB Compact will tentatively be arriving in late September and preorders will begin this summer. We will provide more details about available editions and preordering in a future project update.


A few LSB Giant Print Reference (GPR) advanced copies have arrived and we have included two photos of the faux leather edition. 

To provide some scale, this image shows that the GPR is slightly slimmer than the ICR. It also weighs four fewer ounces. The burgundy Bible shown is the GPR, the blue Bible is the ICR and the black one is the Handy Size - all three shown are faux leather editions. 

The 13-point font used for Scripture text with 10-point used for the cross references and translator notes make the GPR an enjoyable reading and studying format.

The Giant Print References are currently available for preorder and are tentatively scheduled to arrive at the end of June.


The LSB is available on a number of digital platforms, and the list continues to expand. Click HERE to see if your favorite online Bible platform offers the LSB!

Also of note, the well-known presentation software ProPresenter has received the license to use the LSB. Stay tuned for a release date to be shared in a future LSB project update.


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.

We continue to introduce new formats and as the LSB product family expands, this program will expand too. Churches may choose to use this program as a fundraiser as well.

Here Is How The 35/35 Program Works:

Select LSB Bibles are available for 35% off MSRP on single orders of 35 or more complete Bibles. 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.



We are thankful to have received the following endorsement for Dr. Varner’s Handbook for Praying Scripture

"I am eager to recommend William Varner’s book as a place to learn how to pray the Bible. His vast collection of Scripture passages and Bible-based prayers from Christian history are organized in a way that’s simple to follow and make the practice easy to understand. Once you’ve read this book, you’ll be able to open to any part of your Bible and know how to turn it into prayer."  

-Donald Whitney, Associate Dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and author of Praying the Bible.

Dr. Varner also recently wrote an article for Focus On the Family about prayer and suffering that can be found HERE
