    I have been wondering when I see these rankings, do these reflect sales of ALL editions including New Testaments, Gospel of John, Childrens’ bibles or only editions containing the entire Bible?

    Does anyone know of a site where we can see actual numbers? I am curious as to how much market share the CSB is picking up and how close it is to catching the ESV.

    The CSB is my choice for primary translation and so I am wondering.
