    Hello again everybody, it's been a few months since I have posted any thing here. The BB was becoming an idol in my life and I needed to chill out on it for a while. But I have a qusetion to ask.

    Are there any other sites that list or rank Bible versions by sales figures or popularity other than the CBA? The CBA only lists the top 10. It also includes spanish versions and paraphrases or extremely dynamic versions such as the Message, NLT, and NCV. Which IMO target a differnt market than the more "FE" versions like the NASB, HCSB, & ESV. The NASB and HCSB make the top ten cut. But I would like to know about more than just the top ten. Where does the ESV rank is it 11th, 12th, or 20th, and how about the NRSV, RSV, MKJV, TNIV, KJV21 and others.

    The reason I ask is that crossway says on their website that ESV sales increased 114% last year!
    ESV Sales Increasing

    But if they sold 0 in 2003 then that would meen that they only needed to sold 114 in 2004. So I would like to compare this sales growth percetage in relation to other competitive translations.
