Overview As Baby Boomers--the generation born from 1946 to 1964--reaches their mid-fifties and beyond (more than 80 million over the next forty years), large print resources will be increasing important to them. Not only the normal aging effects come in to play but the fact that this generation has eye fatigue from the large number of hours working in front of computer screens.

Very Accurate Translation Jul 22, 2007
This Bible is one of my favorites. I have nearly every translation ever put out in my collection. This Bible offers an accurate translation in a user-friendly format. The print is large enough and dark enough to comfortably read for hours at a time without getting blurred vision. The index tabs are helpful and attractive as well. The jewel references are very helpful; the bullet notes are handy; the topical concordance is short and sweet while the maps are delightful. The black imitation leather is better than some of the real leathers out there and I would not hesitate to give this as a gift.
Excellent Feb 6, 2007
This is a excellent Bible. It is truly a Giant Print Bible. Giant Print can mean anywhere from 11 point to 15 point type in a Bible. This Bible is 14 point type, it is clear, and easy to read. It is a solid Bible, the bonded leather is nice, and even the Concordance has Giant Print. The paper is white, but thin, as you would expect, for the Bible would be unwieldy if the paper were thicker. As for the HCSB version: Most modern translations have verses missing in the New Testament when comparing the modern versions to the King James Version. Some modern Bibles are missing as many as 18 verses in the New Testament, but the HCSB includes nearly all those missing verses, so it will likely be more satisfying to those looking for an easier to read Bible than the KJV, but one comparable to the KJV. The KJV reads at about 12th grade reading level, and though I love its beauty, its language is simply outdated, and was outdated even 100 years ago. The HCSB by contrast reads at around the 8th grade reading level. The HCSB is a new version that is not based upon previous Bible versions, and it takes into account the most modern Biblical research. It is accurate, up-to-date, easy-to-read, and the truly Giant Print text is very easy on the eyes. A great Bible!
This IS Giant Print Jun 6, 2006
This is the Holman Christian Standard Bible in 14-point Giant Print. A joy to behold! Although I do not need giant print, I prefer it, and this fills the bill. Unfortunately, the edition is not available in Genuine Leather, but it is bound in South Korea, so the book does have a sewn binding, as all Bibles bound in South Korea do. That is quality. Most American-bound Bibles are glue-bound crap(you should excuse the expression). This particular Bible I am reviewing has thumb-indexing, which I cannot abide and do not recommend to anyone, especially new Bible readers, else they will never learn on their own the placement of the various books. This Bible gets my highest recommendation. The only thing it lacks are book intros and a Harmony of the Gospels. But---easy on the eyes it definitely is, and the HCSB is a remarkably accurate translation, AND easy to read, as well.(It is more accurate than the NIV). But, try to get one without the thumb-indexing.
A lifesaver - LOVE it! Jan 31, 2006
I have severe dry eye, and can lo longer even read an 11 pt font without a magnifier. This Bible has been a LIFESAVER! I LOVE it, love it, love it!! Thank you SO much Holman and Lifeway!!!
The Hcsb audio read by David Payne is also a WONDERFUL accompaniment to this.
