For the enormous worldwide Chinese population (1.3 billion people), the Mandarin CSB/CUV Parallel New Testament, Black Bonded Leather pairs the most widely used "Chinese Union Version (CUV)" with the premiere of the all-new "Chinese Standard Bible (CSB)." Honoring tradition while presenting God's Word in a fresh linguistic style carefully translated by prominent Chinese Bible scholars, this special edition is released in partnership with the Global Bible Initiative. The black bonded leather and gift box help present an affordable, higher quality New Testament with more features than other Chinese Bible products. The Chinese Standard Bible (CSB) is an all-new Chinese Bible translation, translated from the original biblical languages (Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek) and faithfully captures the meaning and authentically preserves the style of the original languages. As one of the most accurate and readable Chinese versions available today, it meets the modern Chinese language standards and the need of Chinese at different educational levels. The Chinese Standard Bible is a joint project of Global Bible Initiative and Holman Bible Publishers, organized by a team of prominent Bible scholars and linguistic experts, benefiting from the most up-to-date technology.
