HCSB Hand Size Jan 26, 2010
This bible is a great translation that is very easy to read. I would recommend this bible for the translation alone. The size of this bible is exactly what I was looking for, not too big and not too small. The lettering is called giant size, but in reality is just a large print that makes for easy reading. The binding is elegant and beautiful with nice leather and a gold stripe with embossed type designs down part of the bible. I get compliments on this bible all the time. What is really nice about this version is all the reference and study type materials that are included in the front and the back. It has a nice feature also that any time a phrase is written in the NT and is actually also written in the OT, it is in bold print. That makes it nice for cross references and studying. I can't say enough about how wonderful this particular bible is. It looks great, feels great, and I love it. I have tried several different translations and sizes of bible over the past several years, and I have found the "perfect" bible for me, and I will not be looking for another. I would highly recommend this bible to anyone!
Great Transaction!!! Dec 6, 2009
The HCSB is an excellent word-for word translation and suitable for reading, study, recitation, and Memory. The quality is great. Just as advertised. The Giant-Print is really Giant-Print. Mighty easy on these old eyes. Price was great. I selected the lowest price for a used product. Represented as good condition, but, at the price, I really expected something not good. I was surprised when I got a notice that it was shipped the same day and showed up a couple of days later (ordered standard shipping). The Bible I received was shrink wrapped in a new box, and the product looked like a new Bible. Totally unmarked, no signs at all of use.
Would highly recommend this translation and this supplier.
Great Bible! Oct 9, 2009
I purchased this Bible on 10/9/09 at a local bookstore. This is a beautifully bound Bible and is a great value! It has a very easy to read font size with very little bleed-through on the uncluttered pages. The size of the Bible is perfect for carrying to church and is very comfortable to hold. The burgundy bonded leather is very attractive and the cover is soft and flexible enough that the Bible lies flat, even when opened near the front or back of the book. It has numerous helps and colored maps in the back and a ribbon marker.
Please note that a previous reviewer reported numerous errors in this Bible. He was reviewing a Bible with a different ISBN number purchased several years ago. I have found no such errors in my copy. I highly recommend this Bible.
Very fine edition of the HCSB Aug 31, 2009
This bible is roughly the size of a pew bible or a hymnal, thicker than the thinline editions of the HCSB.
Unfortunately, there are no photos of this bible online. "Duo-Grain" basically means that the 1/4 of the bible (nearest the spine) is smooth textured, like belt leather, and 3/4 of the cover is textured. There is gold stamping that separates the two areas. The pattern of the stamping is depicted on the box, though in reality it's shiny. The leather cover has a lifetime guarantee and is of excellent quality. I accidentally purchased the burgundy. I would have preferred it in black. The paper is bright white and the contrast is excellent.
If you are looking for a thinline edition of the HCSB and do not need 'giant' print, I would highly suggest the genuine leather Ultrathin Reference Bible (ISBN 158640136-X).
Great Bible! Aug 12, 2009
I have giant or large print Bibles of several translations, publishers, and editions. This one impresses me the most. I love the format Holman has chosen for the text! It is not just sentences and paragraphs, but meaningful passages and quoted passages are set apart, bold printed, or indented. It holds your attention and aids comprehension more than straight text.
The translation is fresh, easy to read and understand, and current in language. For example, contractions are used in dialog passages, much like we speak today - can't, don't, etc. The text is still reverent, "sounding" like Scripture, and not a paraphrase story book.
Holman does a great and consistent job of binding their Bibles. The leather cover, even though bonded, is very nice in quality. In my opinion, Holman surpasses the two more well-known American publishers in quality and consistency of binding and materials used. The print throughout the CSB is even (no faded passages) and easy to read.
With "Giant Print" Bibles, you're never sure how "giant" the print will be from publisher to publisher. The font size for this Bible is 10.5 which many would consider "Large Print." Truly giant print Bibles are usually in excess of 12 point font. However, this font is very readable.
If only Holman had the marketing skills and efforts of Zondervan and Nelson. The Holman Christian Standard Bible is harder to find in Christian book stores and is not as well known among the Christian community because Holman has not put the money and effort into marketing it. It is a wonderful translation, done by high-caliber scholars, and deserves to become one of the mainstays of current Bibles more widely used.
