American Standard Version (ASV) Bible

Our Story

The idea behind the VERSE IT:ALL™ Bible began over coffee following a missed trip to church. We were new in town and visiting different churches looking for our niche. Traveling from church to church, Sunday after Sunday, we noticed something interesting. Many parishioners followed along with the sermon, not from the hardcover Bible in the pews, but rather on their phones or tablets. One Sunday, we decided to download a free Bible for our eReader. We were running late and did not review the Bible before leaving for church. Upon arrival, we discovered the service was moved up an hour. So instead, we decided to grab some coffee and read a verse or two on our own. We took our seats at a local coffee house, turned on our eReader, and were immediately surprised at how hard it was to find anything. The free download was hard to navigate, hard to search, just plain hard to use. If we had tried to use it during a service we would still be searching long after coffee and donuts concluded. As eBook designers, we decided to build a better product for ourselves and others.

What Is the American Standard Version (ASV) Bible?

The American Standard Version is an offshoot of the Revised Version (RV). In 1872, a group of 30 scholars, representing numerous denominations, began work with their English counterparts on an update to the 1611 edition of the King James bible. in 1872. The American representatives of the project were selected by theologian Philip Schaff a prominent professor at Union Theological Seminary, New York City. The effort was primarily led by British clergy. As a result, an agreement was reached whereby the American contributions and suggestions would not be published for another 14 years. In 1901, the 14 year agreement between the American and British teams expired, and the Revised Version, Standard American Edition, as the ASV Bible was officially called, was first published.
