Wonderful Dec 1, 2007
I am overjoyed with this Bible. I was searching for an updated, accurate translation of the Bible. Like others I was impressed with the ESV, but could not find a high quality binding. While I realize this is not an ultimate issue when choosing a translation, it is important to me personally to enjoy "using" my Bible. I looked around a bit more and found the HCSB. What a wonderful translation! Notes on translation variations at the bottom of every page gives me a depth of understanding of the original manuscripts, and an understanding of the translation process, which I have not experienced before. I also learned that it is the first Bible to use the in depth Bible study software, Accordance, for checks and cross checks, therefore it has extreme software compatibility.
To top it off, this the the highest quality binding I have seen in years. My first Bible was a King James Version, Morrocan Leather, Leather Lined, which I received for a birthday present when I was 12 years old. It still looks and feels great! This is the only Bible I have found as an adult which can compare with that binding standard.
The one thing I wish for in this Bible is wide margins. It has opened my heart to God's word in a fresh way. I wish there was more room to write the insights it brings!
A good translation with some flaws HCSB Sep 18, 2006
The HCSB is a good translation overall that seems to combine the readability of the NIV with some of the accuracy of the NASB. There are some places where it can be a bit colloquial in its langauge, or trendy. Matthew 5:22 uses the word "moron," which is a very poor translation for the word, which actually means calling someone wholly worthless or a fool, while a "moron" is someone who is considered to have the genetic mental capacity of about 8th grade. There are also strong points, such as capitalizing names for God, and using bold print for OT quotes in the NT. The binding and quality of the Bible itself is very good, with soft leather. The pages are a bit thin and the print a bit light though. Overall, it is a good translation with some changes that could improve it.
Holman gets it right Mar 21, 2006
After a couple of decades of bonded leather and cheap genuine leather Bibles bound in pigskin, Holman designed a nice affordable cowhide binding that will stand up to the wear and tear of daily use. Other publishers should take note.
Very pleased with this edition... Jan 23, 2005
I was very slow to warm to the Holman CSB. I avoided it for the most part as I believed that there was little reason to bring out yet another modern translation--we are literally awash in a sea of translations. And, like Larry below, I loved the ESV, but was waiting for a quality edition (Crossway cannot seem to publish a quality Bible).
At some point I began including the CSB in parallel searches online and was impressed, upon doing word studies, with the sense of the translation. For example, the CSB, along with only the NJB, captures what I believe is the correct sense of John 3:16. I also like the the treatment of Romans 6:6. Occasionally, I run across phrases that are at first not pleasant to my ears, like "human race" instead of the more usual "sons of man", or "temple complex" rather than just "temple". But, I seem to quickly get used to them and I'm generally delighted with the readability of the CSB. Perhaps most striking is the clarity of the translation. It is rendered in contemporary English and is very clear as to the meaning of the text. It is not a biblical English like the ESV, but not a street English either. At any rate I'm using it more and more and am benefiting greatly from its use.
This particular edition is very nice. The leather is a fine cowhide, thinner than the Cambridge calfskin Bibles that I own, but softer as a result. The paper is fine--it could have been a little thicker, but it's better than standard Bible paper and the amount of bleed-through is acceptable to me (It is an Ultrathin after all). The print is large enough to be comfortable at 10.5 and the Bible is very nicely laid out as regards the general typography. This is the nicest edition of the HCSB to date. I highly recommend this translation and this particularly edition. I don't believe you will be disappointed.
Excellent quality Bible Dec 17, 2004
This is a very high quality Bible. The binding and overall craftsmanship is superb. In fact, the publisher (Holman) offers a lifetime guarantee. One caveat is that the print size, at 10.5, is not really what one would consider large print, although it is quite legible. The translation itself seems to be quite readable with a fairly high level of accuracy. It appears to be a cross between the literal accuracy of the NASB and the readability of the NIV. (Note: While I personally prefer the ESV, the quality of Bibles released to date by its publisher, Crossway, has been rather disappointing, to put it mildly)."
