The HCSB: The BLB's newest Bible translation

The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) is now available for free on Blue Letter Bible’s website and iPhone/iPad mobile app!

The HCSB is a trusted, original translation of God’s Word. A team of more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations pursued two ideals with every translation decision: each word must be faithful to the original languages of the Bible and each word must reflect clear, contemporary English.

We are very thankful for the generosity of Holman Bible Publishers, an imprint of B&H Publishing Group, who have offered Blue Letter Bible the free use of the HCSB!

Isaiah 42:8 HCSB

"I am Yahweh, that is My name; I will not give My glory to another, or my praise to idols."

Kevin Otsuji—Romans Audio Series
Pastor Kevin Otsuji’s new teaching series on the Book of Romans is now available on Blue Letter Bible. Throughout this 77 message series, Otsuji unpacks "the power of the gospel" (Romans 1:16). He focuses on the letter’s essential doctrines, pointing us to the greatness of God’s character and His saving grace through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Don Smith—The Parables of Christ Audio Series
In this series on "The Parables of Christ," Pastor Don Smith exposits gospel passages with a blend of sound doctrine and practical application. By examining the very words of Christ as He instructed His people more than 2000 years ago, their relevancy for His followers today becomes most apparent. Smith looks at how the parables demonstrate God’s power, reveal His sovereign purposes, and express His righteous judgment.

Margaret Ashmore—New Audio Messages
Newly added to our women’s resources are Margaret Ashmore’s messages on the Beatitudes entitled "Pursuing Jesus," and "The Two Paths" based on Psalm 1. She draws from many years of personal study and life's difficult lessons. Her vivacious candor stirs the heart, as she brings the truth of God's Word front and center.
