  • I really appreciate the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation. It is very readable, with a great reference system, and my theologian friends tell me is very faithfully reproduced. I highly recommend it.”

  • The Holman Christian Standard Bible delivers what it promises: a clear, faithful translation of God's Word. I trust it because it is true to the original languages of the Bible, without compromise. But there's more: I can preach it because it is clear and understandable—to those in the church and to those we have yet to win for Christ.”

  • I would recommend the Holman Christian Standard Bible to new believers and seasoned scholars alike. The translation is easy to read and thoroughly researched.”
