HCSB Facebook event offers 'Fresh Look'
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) -- B&H Publishing Group is encouraging Bible readers, Bible students, pastors and church leaders to "Take a Fresh Look" at the Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) during a live webcast and Facebook party beginning at noon (CST) Friday, Sept. 30.

Speaker and author Ed Stetzer, vice president of research and ministry development at LifeWay Christian Resources, will host the webcast. Guests will include Selma Wilson, vice president of B&H Publishing Group, Bible editors and local and international pastors who preach, teach and conduct community outreach using the HCSB.

Webcast registrants are invited to interact, ask questions and qualify for prizes in the show's live chat stream.

During the webcast, winners will be announced for a $1,000 LifeWay gift card and three $500 LifeWay Christian Stores gift cards.

Among other Bible and Bible study prizes to be given out are the Holman Old & New Testament Commentary set at http://MyStudyBible.com; an HCSB Study Bible; and the recently released HCSB Life Essentials Study Bible.

The HCSB, released in 2004, was translated with the goal of being a balanced translation of God's Word for accuracy and readability. Last year, B&H published the HCSB Study Bible to take readers deeper into their journey of faith and strengthen their biblical literacy.
