It was Adrian Reynolds (then at the Proclamation Trust and now at the FIEC) who first introduced me to the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB). It was a new and original English translation and aimed to be faithful and clear to modern American readers. It was a joy to read in my personal devotions, but was also in places a bit quirky. I was a fan but not a devotee. In 2017 everything changed. LifeWay released their revised and improved version with a new name – the Christian Standard Bible. I bought a Reader’s Bible and read it through in 90 days. The quirks had gone and I was hooked.
