Product Description

Product Description

This updated text edition of the HCSB is optimized for easy reading on digital devices. Free from the visual clutter of footnotes, cross references, and other links, this edition is fast to navigate and easy to use. 

The HCSB was developed by 100 scholars and English stylists from 17 denominations, who prayerfully translated what is one of the most significant Bible translations available today. The HCSB reflects linguistic advances in vocabulary, grammar, punctuation and formatting while it retains meaningful theological terms. In the HCSB you'll find God's personal name (Yahweh), the use of "Messiah" in the New Testament, and the use of "slave" in the New Testament, just to name a few examples. Also, you'll notice the contemporary speech patterns in the HCSB mean that words like "behold" and "shall" are not used. Instead, words or phrases that are common today can be found in their place. 

The HCSB employs a first-of-its kind translation philosophy known as Optimal Equivalence, which seeks to achieve an optimal balance of literary precision and emotive clarity through a comprehensive analysis of the text at every level. This process assures maximum transfer of both words and thoughts contained in the original.

I am interested in reading different versions of the Bible. I am happy with the HCSB Digital Text Edition Holman Christian Standard Bible. I wish it had explanation notes more accessible.

Now I carry the bible with my e reader, allowing me the inspiration and holy interaction that can only be provided by the bible. This translation is perfect with my use of language and has rounded out and provided a foundation for my other spiritual reading. I really appreciate that Amazon has made it available to me.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is God's Word... full of truth of who God truly is and his plan of salvation for mankind. This is history and tells us of eternity. No truer words will ever be spoken and read than the Words of God himself.
