Yes it does. The significant change is the names of Jesus. This translation uses the words Messiah, Yahweh, and other Hebrew terms where they are found in the original language rather than the more generic terms found in others.

This should help... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holman_Christian_Standard_Bible ...I always find it beneficial to research a bible and who made it before buying one. If they allow this post to be sent to you just highlight the text and past it into the address bar or you can just Google the Holman Christian Standard with the word excerpt after it.
If you have a good speed on your internet connection you can copy past this link, it is a video from the HCSB website... http://hcsbstudybible.com/m/videos/13140.aspx ...

The HCSB follows the Evangelical Guidelines of May 27, 1997 for translation of gender-related language in Scripture. It is considered to be "gender accurate".

On a color eReader the red-letter portions will be red. Black and white eReaders will either display the red-letter portions as gray or not show any differentiation.
