The popular Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) is now available with Strong's Numbers, a powerful Bible study tool.
About the HCSB translation:
One hundred scholars collaborated to produce this new translation, one which they envisioned not as a revision of earlier English translations, but as something completely original, derived directly from the most reliable Greek and Hebrew texts.
The guiding principle behind the Holman Christian Standard Bible, or Holman CSB, or HCSB is neither word-for-word nor thought-for-thought translation, but a combination of the best of both principles called “optimal equivalence,” which seeks to convey the precise meaning of the original by the best means available in the language of the new version, with clarity and readability being high priorities.
About Strong's Numbers:
The well-known Strong's Exhaustive Concordance lists all the significant words in the Bible and references each word to the original Hebrew and Greek languages. The concordance was first published in 1890 by Dr. James Strong, whose life's work was to provide students of the Bible with an accurate and functional tool to understand the Bible's original language. He and others worked on the list for 35 years without the aid of today's technology. Dr. Strong's work is still universally recognized as one of the essential aids for studying the Bible.
