EDWARD D. ANDREWS (AS in Criminal Justice, BS in Religion, MA in Biblical Studies, and MDiv in Theology) is CEO and President of Christian Publishing House. He has authored over 140 books. Andrews is the Chief Translator of the Updated American Standard Version (UASV).

The goal of the Christian Publishing House Blog is to be a help to all. There have been internet blogs for decades. Here, for seven years now, we have been taking difficult and complex subjects and making them easy to understand. We wanted to create a blog that would communicate as clearly and powerfully as possible to all of today’s readers. The resulting effort is the CPH Blog that is easy to read and understand, while also accurately communicating information about the Bible. In fact, the youth (12-18) will be able to read our blog and understand it. This is not to say that it is for the young ones as such, it is for both adult and young ones. In addition, our blog will be beneficial for those who struggle to understand when they read. We hope this blog has been just right for you. As each succeeding article is posted, it will be more reflective of the above goals.

It is a daunting task for the new Bible student to walk into a store looking to purchase a Bible. Immediately, he is met with shelves upon shelves of more than 100 different English translation choices: NIV, TNIV, ESV, NASB, NRSV, CEV, HCSB, NLT, TEV, NET, and on and on. He is even further bewildered when he realizes that there are different formats within each translation: a reference Bible, a study Bible, a life application Bible, an archaeology Bible, as well as many more, or just the standard format. He further notices that some translations claim to be Essentially Literal, while others claim to be Dynamic Equivalent (thought for thought), which has only served to increase his confusion.

God has chosen to convey an extremely important message to the human family, one that is a matter of life and death. In the Bible of 66 smaller books, we find God’s will and purpose for us, as well as what role we need to play in order to receive the gift of life. Sir Matthew Hale, lord chief justice of England, once said: “The Bible is the only source of all Christian truth;—the only rule for the Christian life;—the only book that unfolds to us the realities of eternity.” Based on this, in 2005 we started the Updated American Standard Version Project. At present, we have translated 80% of the Bible and it is put online for free as we get each Bible book finished. You can read it on its official website. (https://www.uasvbible.org/) Or right here on the CPH Blog. (https://christianpublishinghouse.co/updated-american-standard-version-uasv/)

If we are to know God, it only makes sense; we must know his Word—The Bible. Jesus Christ makes this all too clear for us when he said in prayer to his Father: “This is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.” (John 17:3, UASV) Therefore, here we see that “eternal life” is closely related to our knowing (having a relationship with) God and his Son, Jesus Christ. It is the apostle John who answers the why: “The world is passing away, and its lusts; but the one who does the will of God remains forever.”—1 John 2:17, UASV.

In order to know “the will of God,” we must recognize that the Bible is our only guide in this matter.  Each Christian should “be filled with the accurate knowledge [Gr epignosis,* accurate or full knowledge] of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the accurate knowledge of God.”  (Col. 1:9-10, UASV) Is it possible to “in a manner worthy”  of God without fully knowing his will? Is it possible to know his will without first understanding the Bible? 

* Epignosis is a strengthened or intensified form of gnosis (epi, meaning “additional”), meaning, “true,” “real,” “full,” “complete” or “accurate,” depending upon the context. Paul and Peter alone use epignosis.

Ps. 119:165: Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
165 Abundant peace belongs to those loving your law,
    and for them, there is no stumbling block.

At times, it must be difficult for us even to contemplate the idea of finding any measure of peace in the world we now know. Yet, it is our love for God’s law and the application of that law, which will give us a righteous standing before our Creator (being justified in his eyes) and a measure of peace and happiness now. Thus, the incentive to know our Bible is far greater than one might have thought—approval in God’s eyes as well as peace and happiness and the hope of a future everlasting life. Please know that all donations and the purchase of our books have aided this ministry we call the Christian Publishing House Blog of thousands of article (and growing) on 75 different Bible subjects and the translation of the Updated American Standard Version (UASV), which is now read by over 100,000 people in 72 countries around the world. Many of these people cannot afford to donate or buy books, so please make a monthly donation of at least $5.00 and help us to continue helping them.

Is real peace of mind possible now? When we face difficult and complicated problems, we may feel that happiness and inner peace are elusive. We are Helping People find peace in this troubled world now. There is a way to find inner peace now. One major problem is that today there is no shortage of guidance on how to gain peace of mind. Psychologists, bloggers, websites, self-help books, and on and on. The real answer is lost within this maze of imitation answers. What does God’s Word say that can help us to find true and lasting peace now? We have been providing those answers for seven years with thousands of articles on 75 different Bible study areas, and we want to continue to do so indefinitely. Help us help others!
