    Hello all! How are you? Have you used or researched the new Holman CSB? Does anyone know anything about it besides what they wrote? Are there things they left out or not?

    Thanks,

    Jason

    You can search the entire Holman Christian Standard Bible online at http://bible.crosswalk.com/

    You can do a verse by verse comparison with the other versions. From what I can tell it is a very accurate translation.

    It IS an SBC translation, being produced by Holman, the book publishing arm of the convention. It will be used more and more in Lifeway literature because Lifeway won't have to pay the NIV royalty.

    1. Go to BIBLE VERSIONS/TRANSLATIONS Forum Page.
    2. Find the Show topics arrow (upper right)
    3. Select "Show All Topics"
    4. Click GO
    5. You will see there are 13 pages of topics
    (on the day of posting, assuming standard page length)
    6. Look at page 7, a HCSB topic
    Look on page 4 for a HCSB topic

    Cool the SBC finally decided to do a translation. I just thought they used it. I definetly like how the HCSB is more literal than the NIV and it also reads smooth.

    I've been using it since April
    for my Sunday School teaching, Daily
    Bible study, and personal devotions.

    You can visit the publisher's web site for the Holman Bible at,

    http://www.broadmanholman.com/hcsb.asp

    The translation team is very impressive. The translation itself appears to me to be somewhat of a compromise between the more precise NASB and the less precise NIV.

    I agree. I think they went more readable less precise than the NASB but not as much paraphrase as the NIV.

    I wonder whatever happened to the Disciple's Study Bible they published?

    I hated it it at first because they messed up (changed) all the familliar verses like Psalm 23 and the Lord prayer, but after comparing it with a Strong's I see why they did it.
    It has quickely become my Bible of choice. Before the HCSB I used the NASB and NIV.

    I have the Red-Letter Text Edition.
    No Maps.
    No crossreferences.
    Does have the translator notes.

    Gorsh, i'll not be able to wave my
    HCSB around in the air shouting:
    "I Believe this Good Book from
    Genesis clean through to MAPS!" ;)

    Instead, I can still hollar:
    "I believe this book from cover
    to cover. I even believe the cover:
    HOLY BIBLE" [​IMG]

    If i don't watch out I'll
    become a HCSBO (Holman Christan Standard
    Bible Only). [​IMG]

    but i use the KJV1611 talk when I praise Jesus:
    [​IMG] Praise Iesus, the Sonne of God! [​IMG]

    I believe it's been rereleased, although not by Broadman & Holman, but by a related publisher.

    I only recognized five or six names on the translataors list. I must not run in SBC circles.

    It is #5 on the CBA translations sales list at http://www.cbaonline.org/TrackingLists/trx.jsp?w=t .

    It follows the NIV, KJV, NLT and NKJV. The NASB is 9th and The ESV has not made the cut.

    They update it every month around the 20th or so.

    Since the HCSB has only been out a few months Lifeway is pretty proud of their #5 slot especially since they haven't yet published it in some of their best selling styles such as the Thinline and Large print editions. These won't be released until October.

    I want a red Bible, a red HCSB.
    A Bible should be read! [​IMG]

    I do want an edition of the HCSB that
    has some cross references and maybe some
    maps.

    I bought the Red hard bound bible in april and then bought a leather slip cover for it&lt; with a really cool Jesus fish on it.

    Then I thought why should i cover up a red bible so I put it on the shelf. I then bought the black pew bible to put in my leather case. The pew bible is the same thing without the fancy cover.
