Holman Bibles schedules two new Bibles in New American Standard Bible (NASB) translation

Holman Bibles Partners with the Lockman Foundation for NASB Specialty Bibles Releasing Spring 2022

Nashville, TN (June 18, 2021) — Holman Bibles, a division of B&H Publishing, has announced a partnership with the Lockman Foundation to produce a line of Bible resources in the New American Standard Bible (NASB) 2020 text. Homan Bible’s first two NASB specialty Bibles are scheduled to release Spring 2022.

“The Holman Bible team is excited to partner with the Lockman Foundation to onboard the NASB translation into our publishing portfolio,” says Andy McLean, Publisher, Holman Bible and Reference. “By publishing certain text and specialty Bibles with the NASB translation, we are afforded another opportunity to not only expand our mission of placing God’s Word into the hands and hearts of people, but also the chance to provide another translation that complements our other translation offerings. We know there are many readers who appreciate the translation philosophy of the NASB and the place it occupies on the translation spectrum, falling into the tradition of a more literal, word-for-word translation.”

The New American Standard Bible (NASB) translation is widely accepted by pastors, professors, and ministry leaders as one of the most literal translations of the Bible, using a formal equivalence translation philosophy. This method translates word-for-word from the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts as frequently as possible, making it a reliable choice for studying and teaching God’s Word.

Holman Bible’s NASB Bible resources will feature the NASB 2020 updates, with the first Bible releases set for spring 2022. Included in the initial list will be the NASB Large Print Personal Size Reference Bible and the NASB Super Giant Print Reference Bible. These Bibles will continue Holman’s commitment to sophisticated construction and cover design, with features including:

  • Smyth-sewn durable binding
  • Two-column text format
  • Robust end-of-page cross-reference system
  • Topical subheadings
  • Footnotes
  • Words of Christ in red
  • Ribbon marker for easy referencing between pages
  • Concordance
  • Presentation page for gift-giving
  • Full-color maps
  • 16-point print size (Super Giant Editions)
  • 11.25-point print size (Large Print Editions)
