Here at Bible Gateway, we strive to provide you with the Bible resources you need for your spiritual walk. To do so, we are constantly adding new content for you to access from home. Today we’re proud to announce the addition of another translation to our library of free audio Bibles: the Holman Christian Standard Bible New Testament, read by Dale McConachie.
Employing an innovative translation technique titled “Optimal Equivalence,” the Holman Christian Standard Bible aims for both “literary precision” and “emotive clarity”—which allows translators to preserve not only the meaning of the text, but the original words themselves.
If you’d like to know more about the history and nature of this translation, you can read more about it on the blog. If you’d rather jump in and listen, then go try out the audio Holman Christian Standard Bible NT.
