"Approximately 15,000 study notes appear throughout the HCSB Study Bible. We could have included more … there was no shortage of scholarship for this study Bible. What led us to be so discriminate about the notes we included is that input from study Bible users reflected their desire to have necessary, relevant notes within the context of the Scripture being studied. That meant information – notes, maps, illustrations – should be concise and impactful, plus easy to find.
" – Jeremy Howard, General Editor
