"The Holman Christian Standard Bible is one of the most textually sophisticated English Bibles available anywhere."
"The HCSB is a refreshing and faithful translation of the Scriptures. I recommend it for private reading and public worship."
"The HCSB renders the Hebrew and Greek in a very readable and accessible way, but it does so in a way that doesn't diminish the language's dignity. And because of that, it's a translation that's well read in the pulpit."
The Holman Christian Standard Bible is an outstanding translation that I've been reading for some time now. I've found it to be faithful to the historic tradition in terms of understanding what translation is all about - connecting a book that was written in a different culture and a different language and bringing it to contemporary times in a way that is faithful and readable."
100 scholars and English stylists from 17 denominations, prayerfully, translated what is one of the most significant Bible translations available, the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB).
Taking into account the significant advancements in scholarship, translation theory, and contemporary English usage, the HCSB will satisfy both those new to the faith and seasoned scholars.
While there are many reasons why the HCSB was produced, here are two extremely significant ones:
English is changing rapidly, and Bible translations must keep pace.
More than 1.3 billion people speak or read English as a primary or secondary language, and this widespread usage forces rapid changes. Words and phrases that were commonly used in the recent past are no longer part of contemporary speech, often sounding strange to modern ears.
Advances in biblical research provide new data for Bible translators.
Biblical scholars today actually have better information about ancient texts than scholars did years ago. While translations made even in the last 10 or 20 years do not reflect some of these significant advances in research, the HCSB incorporates vast amounts of this information.
We are proud to offer several options for you to read the HCSB in your
home, church, and even on the road. With products ranging from pocket
sized New Testaments to HCSB Pew Bibles, we think you will find a copy
of the Bible appropriate for every occasion.
