Most folks have struggled at one time or another with having to choose between accuracy and readability in a Bible translation. If you are looking for the best of both of these worlds in a Bible translation, look no further! The struggle is over, the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) is here!
Why add yet another modern English translation to your collection of Bibles? Holman Bible Publishers undertook this project to provide an accurate translation styled for today's reader, without bowing to recent trends, ideology or the politics of today's world. Their prestigious translation team of more than eighty scholars from twenty different denominations began with a word-for-word translation process, then styled the language to communicate clearly with modern American English readers.
The end result is an accurate and wonderfully readable translation - the accuracy you want for your personal Bible study, the readability you need for evangelism, or to give to new Believers!
