The Christian Standard Bible is a revision of the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB), that updates both the translation and word choices in order to optimize the faithfulness to the original languages and clarity for modern audiences. Taking input and concerns from Bible scholars, pastors, and readers, the HCSB was updated with the CSB to improve the clarity for the modern reader.
The unchanging truth of God's Word was the central theme of She Reads Truth. Now this Christian Standard Bible captures the themes of beauty, goodness, and truth that members of the She Reads Truth community have come to expect. Women will connect with the truth of Scripture each day through enlightening devotionals, captivating calligraphy, and beautiful hand-lettering works of art. Plus the wide margins allow for plenty of space for journaling and artistic expression.
