According to the newly published website, the Holman Christian Standard Bible has been updated. “Holman” has been removed. “Renamed the Christian Standard Bible® (CSB), the text will be available in a full line of Bibles for readers of all ages, with initial products releasing March 2017″ (for more, see here).
Reason for this revision:
“We are committed to improving our translation based on advances in biblical scholarship, and input from Bible scholars, pastors, and readers. Taking all of these items into consideration, the CSB has improved on the HCSB’s faithfulness to the original text and clarity for a modern audience.”
I suggest you visit the FAQ to see what’s going on thus far with this rebranded Bible. I’ve always liked this Bible but not enough to make it my primary. And now I’m no longer Baptist, perhaps these updates will sway me.
