CSB logo with drop shadow We are pleased to announce the release of the Christian Standard Bible (CSB) for the Accordance Library, available immediately.

The Christian Standard Bible captures the Bible’s original meaning without compromising clarity. An optimal blend of accuracy and readability, this new translation helps readers make a deeper connection with God’s Word and inspires lifelong discipleship. The CSB is for everyone—for readers young and old, new and seasoned. It’s a Bible pastors can preach from and a Bible you can share with your neighbor hearing God’s Word for the very first time.

The CSB is a revision of the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB), originally released in 2004, and based on a thorough review of the translation by respected biblical scholars with feedback from pastors, seminaries and church denominations.

Accordance users who previously purchased the HCSB or HCSB with Strong’s Numbers may order the CSB as a free upgrade.*
