Excellent Study Bible Sep 9, 2007
I have many different Bibles but this one is the best for study. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Great Study Bible Dec 13, 2006
I received my Holman Study Bible as a gift. I really like the introduction to each book. I also like the fact that the maps and illustrations are right in the book so that you do not have to go to the back of the Bible to find them. The Bible is very colorful which to my mind makes it more interesting. The only thing I do not care for is the yellow highlighting over the footnotes. All in all this is a great, easy to read study Bible.
Nice Study Bible Oct 3, 2006
This is the first Study Bible to appear in the HCSB translation. Oxford plans the release of the Scofield 3 in HCSB early in 2007. All of their leather editions will be, unfortunately, thumb-indexed. This Bible is a pretty hefty one. The bonded leather is textured and somewhat shaded, a rather nice and unusual appearance. It is gold edged and has a decent-length ribbon marker. It is filled with charts, maps, and colour photos, all in-text. I find it distracting. This is a red-letter text, with the words of Christ in red. Between that, and the bright yellow highlighter-looking footnotes on every page, large colour in-text maps, and colour photos, one doesn't know whether to come or to go. The pages are just too busy. The text is single-column, with a good sized font, maybe 9pt. It has excellent book intros, a paragraph of how Christ is in that book, an 82 page concordance. The Bible is printed in Korea, and is thus smyth-sewn. So, it is indeed a quality product. The Christian Standard Bible is a vast improvement over the NIV, and faithfully produces the Greek text. I recommend this study Bible---but as I said, for me, it is too busy and too dahn colourful along with the Scripture text. A re-design may be in order.(Note 10-25-06: I took mine back.)(Note: 1-23-08. These Bibles appear to be going on sale, with the Genuine Leather editions already withdrawn from publication. The HCSB is in the process of being revised, and will be re-released in 2009. This edition in toto may be either withdrawn or re-issued next year).
