The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) employs a translation philosophy called 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 meanings contained in the original. The goal of this translation philosophy is to bring as much information from the original text into the reader’s world in language that is as clear and comprehensible as possible. This version is being phased into the CSB.
----
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) aims to draw readers into a deeper, more meaningful relationship with God. By translating Scripture into the clearest possible modern English, the CSB allows readers to experience God’s Word at its fullest. The CSB was created using Optimal Equivalence, a translation philosophy that balances linguistic precision to the original languages and readability in contemporary English. In the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering is clearly understandable, a literal translation is used. When a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, a more dynamic translation is used. This process assures that both the words and thoughts contained in the original text are conveyed as accurately as possible for today’s readers. Research shows the CSB is both highly literal to the original languages and highly readable, achieving an optimal balance of the two. Developed by 100 scholars from 17 denominations, the CSB faithfully and accurately captures the Bible’s original meaning without compromising readability.
