I was pleased by this purchase. The only thing that could've made it better would have been if the Bible had been a red-letter edition. I understand such Bibles are not available in red-letter editions, however, and this does not detract from my overall satisfaction with my purchase. I even got a discount!
I love this Bible...larger print than usual Bibles and I have enjoyed the Holman translation for some time now. The notes are wonderful and insightful. If you want to go a bit deeper, this is a good one for you. I purchased the leather copy and it is very nice.
I was made aware of this translation by my son who is attending seminary, I ordered it and have been very pleased with the way it reads, the articles, and the difficult to interpret scripture notes called "twisted scripture" I also find the general notes and study aids very helpful, the translation reads very well, and I find it very accurate when executing word studies. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a deeper understanding of how scripture applies to our world today.
