The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
Pairing with the CSB, the CSB Study Bible represents the work of more than a hundred scholars who have devoted their lives to living and teaching the truths of Scripture. They come from different denominations and diverse backgrounds. The contributors reflect a broad sampling of evangelical scholars whose ministries are based at seminaries, colleges, and churches. They have sought a balanced approach on controversial issues, and each note and essay has been pored over by a team of theological editors.
This includes both the Christian Standard Bible text and CSB Study Bible Notes. Please note that the CSB text and the CSB Study Bible notes will download as separate resources into your library.
I like to use the Christian Standard Bible because it’s a translation that’s faithful to the Bible’s original manuscripts, with oversight by some trusted partners in ministry. While it’s highly literal to the original text, it’s also remarkably clear for Bible readers today. I highly recommend the CSB as I encourage our church members—and all of us—to read and share the power of God’s Word with others.

The Christian Standard Bible is a landmark achievement—beautifully combining accuracy and accessibility in a way that makes it ideal for Bible study, reading, teaching, and preaching. I look forward to seeing how King Jesus uses this translation to edify the church and equip God’s people for mission in the world.
