A while ago, I interviewed the editor of the Holman Christian Standard Bible (Dr. Edwin Blum), and we talked about a projected 2009 update. I e-mailed him recently to enquire about the current status of this revision and Dr. Blum graciously sent me a reply. The new updated version will be available in the form of the Student Apologetics Bible scheduled for print in February 2010. There may also be a printing of the Minister’s Bible October 2009 or one of the pcket sized Bibles. The long-awaited study Bible is now scheduled for release in October 2010. Like many people, I’m a big fan of the HCSB, and I posted a review of this version a short while ago. I’ll be doing a full-length review of the new version when it comes out.
