I like to use the Christian Standard Bible because it’s a translation that’s faithful to the Bible’s original manuscripts, with oversight by some trusted partners in ministry. While it’s very literal to the original text, it’s also remarkably clear for Bible readers today. I highly recommend the CSB as I encourage our church members—and all of us—to read and share the power of God’s Word with others.
Kyle Idleman, Teaching Pastor, Southeast Christian Church, Louisville, KY
I am deeply grateful for the Christian Standard Bible, because it is rigorously faithful to the original languages without sacrificing clear readability. This translation will help believers and non-believers around the world be able to read, understand, and memorize God’s Word.
David Platt, President, International Mission Board
As a pastor, I want a Bible translation that is trustworthy for preaching and study, but accessible enough for my people to read and understand for themselves. For this reason, I’m delighted to commend to you the Christian Standard Bible.
Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, OH
As I travel around the country teaching the Bible to women, I encourage them to draw on the promises of God as their main source and sustenance for life. The Christian Standard Bible lines up perfectly with my core ministry goals—theological soundness and accessibility for the everyday person.
Lisa Harper, Bible teacher and author
The Christian Standard Bible provides a clear trustworthy translation of the Holy Scriptures in a style that the reader can clearly hear the voice of God in print speaking to their soul.
Dr. Tony Evans, Senior Pastor, Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, Dallas, TX
I preach and teach from the Christian Standard Bible because of the accuracy, the precision, and beauty of the text. I’m excited to finally have one translation that is both faithful to the authorial intent of the biblical writers and written in English that communicates to this generation.
Derwin Gray, Lead Pastor, Transformation Church, Indian Land, South Carolina
