I received a review copy from B&H Publishers for the HCSB Study Bible, Black Deluxe Leather edition.

To begin, I think the translation itself is quite good. I still feel the best translations are NKJV, ESV and NASB but the HCSB is just a step under. I see the HCSB as a translation in between ESV and NIV. Lets just say the NIV wishes it was as good a translation as the HCSB. It has an excellent readability and I think the translators did well in what they set out to do, to make an "optimal equ...more
I love the HCSB translation. It actually explains the text more accurately in certain places than certain other translations do. Also, I like how through out this study Bible it teaches some Hebrew and Greek words to bring greater understanding portions of the text. I would definitely recommend it to augment one's study of the Bible.

***Reviewing this Bible made it clear why it's Bible of the year by ECPA in 2011***

Holman Bible Publishers hit a home run when they published Holman Christian Standard Study Bible in 2010. “Evangelical Christian Publishers Association” (ECPA) thought so too when they awarded the bible ECPA’s Bible of the year award in 2011. From the new translation, to the Hebrew and Greek word studies, footnotes, time lines, full color maps and more, there is lots to like in this inviting Bible.

While most Bib...more
For the first time in my 24 years, I read the Bible cover to cover, taking one full year to accomplish the task (2013). I used my copy of the HCSB study bible for the undertaking.

The translation itself is up-to-date, with a clarity unmatched by other translations. I especially enjoyed the full color photos of historic locations, maps, diagrams, and illustrations. Each book begins with a very helpful, in-depth introduction.

Where this version really shines is the abundance of notes. The sheer amou...more

My appreciation for this translation began with my checking the work of the translators on a popular section of scripture which read surprisingly differently to me than any other translation, and even undid some preaching I'd heard about the subject. The passage translates Jesus' groaning at Lazarus's tomb (prior to weeping) as being angry. Upon checking with the concordance, I found that the sound described in the passage indeed was understood as an expression of anger and frustration. Kudos to...more

I love this translation and the Study Bible! The Bible is God's Revelation to mankind. I recommend this version and this particular Bible for a deeper understanding of what God is saying to us through His Word

I have read through the NIV, King James, NASB, ESV and The Message several times. But the Holman Christian Standard Bible in the Study Bible edition, is my all-time favorite!

Amazing. Best book ever. I loved the Study Bible and it's colorful maps and pages. It really added visually as well as intellectually.
Great translation, good study notes, lots of value. Have it both as leather bound and in electronic versions ...
