jar of clayStoughton, WIAge: 55-65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Tremendous Study Bible ! ! !February 2, 2020jar of clayStoughton, WIAge: 55-65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dr. Evans and Holman Bibles have produced one of the finest study Bible available. This study Bible along with the NKJV Study Bible (Full Color 3rd Edition) are my go-to study Bibles.
FORMAT: The most important part of any Bible is the translation. The CSB translation is probably the best combination of accuracy and readability available. Natural English is used so it reads easily, but is still quite literal. The language and phraseology is dignified, unlike some academic paraphrases. Gender modification is utilized, but only to the extent allowed by the underlying Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek languages, unlike the NIV 2011 which uses extensive gender modification. A generous 9 point font is used for Scripture and a standard 7 point font is used for study notes. I would love to see publishers go to an 8 point font for study notes. Gold color is used to designate section headings and chapter and verse notations for cross-references and study notes. While this gives the page a very rich and tasteful look, it is difficult to read in low light. A two column Scripture format is used with cross-references along the outsides of the pages. Three columns of very practical study notes are at the bottom of the page. Some study Bibles contain unnecessary study notes; notes which re-state the obvious. You will find these notes to be helpful, both in facts and application. The layout of this Bible is very tastefully done and aesthetically pleasing.
CONTENTS: Dr. Evan's notes are evangelical and conservative, but they do not have a Calvinistic bias (as do the notes in the MacArthur and Reformation Study Bibles). In addition to the CSB text and fine study notes, this Bible contains a multitude of helpful study features. One feature, which should be standard in all study Bibles is a Topical Index which helps the reader locate information on a specific topic. A beefy Word Concordance is included along with a section which includes Definitions of Key Terms and Doctrines of the Christian Faith. Short Kingdom Living articles, Hope Words quotes, Inspirational Articles, Questions and Answer side-bar articles, Application Questions and QR Code Video Devotionals are included throughout the Bible. With all of this great study material, one might assume that this is a huge study Bible, but it is not. It is significantly smaller than an ESV Study Bible by comparison.
QUALITY: The genuine leather cover is soft, pliable and well constructed. The leather itself is quite thin, however. The Bible has a sewn binding and plasticized leather-like inner-cover liners. Good quality Bible paper is used as is line matching of the print. This results in a nice black to white contrast with very little bleed-through from the opposite side of the page. Two ribbon markers are included. All in all this is a high quality Bible for the money. I purchased this Bible from Christianbook.com; hence my review is voluntary.
