I’m sure many of you are familiar with Crossway. They are the publishers of the English Standard Version (ESV), as well as of numerous books on theology and Christian living. I’ve read many of their books and I myself am thankful to Crossway for selecting books that are so Scripture-centered, so focused on God’s glory, because those are the kinds of books we need to teach us truth and to give us a passion for worshipping Him. Recently the Crossway headquarters in Illinois was struck by flood. This created a significant financial and logistical burden that saps from many of their other efforts. Most notably, the flooding has the potential to set back Crossway’s Bible ministry projects. If you’ve benefited from Crossway’s many resources, please consider supporting them financially–they are requesting that you do so by May 31–to help with the following:
- Translation costs for the ESV Chinese Study Bible, to be published in Mainland China
- Printing costs for 60,000 copies of the Chinese-English ESV bilingual Bible, also for publication and distribution in Mainland China
- Completion and global distribution of the ESV Gospel Transformation Bible this fall
- Development of the Knowing the Bible studies, to be offered free digitally worldwide
Whether or not you can donate, I know that they would appreciate your prayers. They’ll need your support to repair the building, install additional floodproofing measures, and to continue Bible ministry projects. I know that I am excited about the prospect of the ESV Study Bible being translated into Chinese, and as those who love the Word, I am sure that you are, as well. Please bring Crossway before His throne in prayer, that these efforts would not be delayed, and consider supporting them financially!
