Exceptionally poor Table of Contents. Every chapter of every book of the Bible is listed as one long list, over many pages, rather than allowing simple selection of book, then chapter (as is standard with other ebook bibles). The apologetics articles listed in the paper version look great, however there's no ebook indexing of the articles so you can "jump" to the article you want. In fact the ebook version doesn't even list the articles or what page the articles are on. To find you have to scroll through the whole ebook and hope you find the article. This is substandard in this day and age of technology. Gave 3 stars for product value only because I got the ebook for the sale price. If it had been full price, it would have been 1 star. Don't buy the ebook version, buy the paper version, or you will likely be disappointed as I was.
I have purchased many bibles in the $20-$30, range all of which have excellent covers and bindings, but he two hcsb bibles I recently purchased are the exception. The HCSB Apologetics Study Bible has very poor craftmanship. The paper is warped rather than smooth, it looks and feels like there are large wrinkles or bubbles on the pages. The cover also has bubbles in it that that are very noticeable along with a very large gap on the top seam where the grey material is stitched to the black. The study notes need to be considered carefully. I thought I was purchasing a study bible that would teach my daughter more about defending our faith, how do the notes about about whether or not there will be sex in heaven do this? Any bible student needs to take care with any study notes in any bible but much more with this particular study bible. So while I have no big problem with this particular translation, I rated it very low because of the extremely poor quality of the study features and down right negligence of the craftmanship. This bible will not last very long and needs to be handled with care.
