‘New Believer’s Bible’ Receives ECPA Diamond Award with 10 Million Copies Sold

by Greg Laurie on Jun 9, 2021

I’m excited to announce some good news for the New Believer’s Bible. This Bible, which has impacted so many new believers around the world, just received the ECPA Diamond Award, having sold 10 million copies.

25 years ago, when I first put together the notes and help guides to go into this Bible, who could have realized the scale of impact it would have?

  • These are the Bibles that we give out free of charge at all our crusades when people come forward to receive Christ.
  • These are Bibles that hundreds of churches use to follow up with those who make professions of faith in Jesus.
  • These are Bibles that street-witnessing teams and evangelistic ministries use when someone wants to know more about God.
  • These are Bibles that thousands of individuals keep on hand to give to a friend, coworker, or family member when conversations turn toward spiritual things.

Without friends and supporters like you (people who believe in the power of the gospel to change lives), we never could have distributed so many New Believer’s Bibles to so many people.

Press Release

RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship, Greg Laurie’s New Believer’s Bible NLT has received the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association’s (ECPA) Diamond Award after selling 10 million copies.

The ECPA, an international non-profit trade organization working to publish and distribute Christian content globally, has only honored 13 books, including New Believer’s Bible, with the distinguished Diamond Award.

Published by Tyndale House Publishers, New Believer’s Bible was first released in 1996 and was most recently updated in March 2020. It was designed for individuals new to the Christian faith and includes resources to help these individuals grow and further understand the Bible.

“Almost twenty years ago, thanks to my friends at Tyndale, I had the honor of digging through God’s Word and, by way of notes and sidebars, leading an upstart believer through the twists and turns and truth of this amazing book,” said Pastor Greg Laurie, General Editor of the New Believer’s Bible. “That edition of the New Believers Bible has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.”

The latest edition of the book includes additional commentary, new topics and updated language. Tyndale has also put together a related YouVersion reading plan, “New Believers: 7 Steps for New Christians.” Harvest has also created a free online course for new believers built on the New Believers Bible content, the “New Believers Online Course.”

“Now there’s a brand-new revised and updated edition of the New Believer’s Bible available,” added Laurie. “And not only does it include my original notes, but I’ve added many new ones to help today’s readers better understand the power of the incredible story of creation, the fall of mankind and redemption through Jesus Christ found throughout its pages. I could not be more grateful for the chance to introduce this Bible to a new generation . . . of new believers.”

Copies of Pastor Greg Laurie’s New Believer’s Bible can be purchased through AmazonTyndale or the Harvest store.
