When the Grandkids get bored with the church school handouts they seem to enjoy this very dynamic KJV. It's exactly what they hear from the minister but with a more colorful depth that they are able to connect with (similar to walking through with the NIV Archeological Study Bible). My only disappointment is that it doesn't have those occassional greek translation bubbles that the HCSB had. My joy is in their interest. It also gives me a couple of years before I have to explain about the differant versions.
Great study bible. The publishers produced a great product. The helps are so well done that I probably will purchase another one....but in The Holman version. I have no cons to report about the helps, construction, type of paper etc. Pictures are clear and crisp and print size is good also (and I am 64 and wear glasses). I am truly a "happy camper".
My husband and I got two of these bibles. One for each of us for our anniversary. This bible has an amazing concordance, loads of cross reference, and the full color photos and maps make the word of God shine even brighter! Love, love, love this bible and would recommend it to new and seasoned Christians alike!
