Why use multiple translations? Using multiple translations while you study will give you a well-rounded understanding of the text at hand. Though it’s good to have a primary version for memorization and meditation, reading from different translations demonstrates sound scholarship and can help you better understand a passage by seeing what the biblical author meant in new ways.

The goal of every Bible translation is to balance faithfulness to the wording of the original language with readability in everyday English. Typically, each translation will lean more toward faithfulness to the wording or readability.

  • Formal translations tend to mimic the forms—word choice, order, grammatical category—of the Hebrew and Greek (even though this sometimes causes awkward English, or “Biblish”).
  • Functional translations work to choose renderings that achieve the same “function” for today’s readers that the original texts would have had for their readers—even if this means introducing more interpretation than may be necessary.

The Mixed Translation Equivalence (Formal and Functional) Bible Bundle 2 includes a selection of both formal and functional Bible translations to help you discover the full richness of meaning God intended: Lexham English Bible (LEB), Christian Standard Bible (CSB), Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB), New International Bible (NIV), and New Revised Standard Version (NRSV).

  • Lexham English Bible (LEB) - The LEB achieves an unparalleled level of transparency because its starting point is the Lexham Greek-English Interlinear New Testament, available separately from Logos Bible Software. Plus, the LEB extensively uses the most up-to-date lexical reference works available. Used with an interlinear, it reveals the entire translation process.
  • Christian Standard Bible (CSB) - 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.
  • Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) - 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.
  • New International Bible (NIV) - The NIV Bible has become the best-selling English version of the Bible since the King James Version. This functional Bible presents clear, understandable English and is the most readable English Bible ever produced, the result of 10 years of work from more than 100 scholars from 6 English-speaking countries. This 2011 version is the most up-to-date NIV translation.
  • New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) - The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is an English translation of the Protestant Bible and the Apocrypha—an updated revision of the Revised Standard Version (RSV), itself a revision of the American Standard Version. It maintains the traditions of the older versions with fresh new vocabulary and modern English construction. The NRSV, translated with the benefit of the Dead Sea Scrolls, reflects manuscript discoveries and advances in modern scholarship. This translation also adopts a policy of gender-inclusive language.
