My Aunt recently gave me a gift of some money due to declining health as of late, and i used it to purchase this Bible. Needless to say, it was a GOOD choice and well worth the money! I love the Holman Christian Standard Bible, and i love the articles and Twisted Scripture sections throughout this Bible. I highly recommend this Bible to Christians who are serious about studying God's Word in earnest! :-)
It is easy to read, has larger text. Has a lot of helpful things included, and I am sure I can learn a lot from reading this. I also love the HCS version. So that is a big added plus! But I do wish the words of Christ were in red. That's the only drawback to it.
I wasn't sure what to expect because I wasn't familiar with the HCSB version but I do like the plain English that is used in it. The number of articles interspersed throughout the Bible are a nice study aid. I ordered this because I was really interested in Apologetics and to aid me in my studies.
