Holman Publishers planning to upgrade their flagship translation

Special thanks to Randy's Bible Buying Guide for catching this.

The Holman will update its Holman Christian Standard Bible, including a name change to Christian Standard Bible. We'll see how this goes. I am not sure Holman can get away with "Christian Standard Bible." The translation is eclectic in a few places and the editors continue to aver from committing to either "Yahweh" or follow the more conventional rendering of "Lord." More importantly, it has not yet surfaced to the top as one of the dominant English translations - it is seen by many to be somewhat "quirky" choice.
