Charley Wingate looks at the mainstream Bible market
Which for ‘hysterical raisins’ (as the hackers used to say) is largely Protestant, and he finds that
what we see is a mass market which, with the exception of the [Roman] Catholic NAB, is completely occupied by theologically conservative translations. From a strictly textual or translational perspective, they are not all conservative; the Holman, for instance, uses a modern textual basis, and the NLT is paraphrastic. But they are all connected to radically conservative Protestant groups.

What this would appear to say is that mainline Protestants are not an important bible market anymore.
