At its General Convention earlier this month, the Episcopal Church approved the use of the Common English Bible for worship and personal study. The CEB translation, published by a consortium of mainline Protestant churches, debuted last summer; it now has 500,000 copies in circulation, and has been on the ECPA bestselling Bibles list for seven months.
