More than twenty years in the making, crafted by the shared expertise of nearly a hundred conservative scholars and English stylists, the Holman Christian Standard Bible® (HCSB) sets the standard in painstaking biblical accuracy and pure literary form.
Accurate, yet highly readable, it's a translation committed to leaving both the grace and gravity of the original languages intact while carefully creating a smooth flow of wording for the reader.
Stylistically, this inaugural edition contributes to the clarity of the written Word, arranging the poetic portions of the Scripture into complete lines of thought, and revering God's presence on each page by capitalizing all the pronouns that refer to Him.
