Holman Christian Standard Bible CSB

About the Holman Christian Standard Bible

The HCS is a highly readable, accurate translation written in modern English. It is published by Holman Bible Publishers, the oldest Bible publisher in America.

After several years of preliminary development, Holman Bible Publishers, the oldest Bible publisher in America, assembled an international, interdenominational team of 100 scholars, editors, stylists, and proofreaders, all of whom were committed to biblical inerrancy to produce the Holman Christian Standard Bible. Outside consultants and reviewers contributed valuable suggestions from their areas of expertise. An executive team then edited, polished, and reviewed the final manuscripts. The goals of this translation were:

  • To provide English-speaking people across the world with an accurate, readable Bible in contemporary English
  • To equip serious Bible students with an accurate translation for personal study, private devotions, and memorization
  • To give those who love God?s Word a text that has numerous reader helps, is visually attractive on the page, and is appealing when heard
  • To affirm the authority of Scripture as God?s Word and to champion its absolute truth
    against social or cultural agendas that would compromise its accuracy
