7hir7een5 Stars Out Of 5An outstanding bible for daily useSeptember 12, 20197hir7eenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The CSB Everyday Study Bible is a fantastic resource for many purposes, making it likely you will turn to it every day.
The font is an eminently readable 9.5pt type, allowing a high degree of comfort when immersing yourself in the text for long periods of time.
If you wish to read only God's word, the formatting makes it simple. Study notes, articles, and other intercalary materials are presented with a shaded background and sans-serif font to easily differentiate them from the primary text.
When you want to dive deeper into context, culture, language, and connections, there is an impressive selection of the Holman study notes in the footnotes for a bible of this size. Comparing it side-by-side to the full sized study bible, I was pleasantly surprised to see how much material was retained (being personally fond of the Holman notes, I'm glad to have them in a portable format.) In addition, there are several essays, character profiles, illustrations, and doctrinal highlights presented throughout the text.
All this comes in a handsome package of surprisingly convenient size. The leatherlike cover is attractively tooled and pleasing to the touch. The packaging states that the binding is Smyth-sewn, so it should hold up well over time. It does not lay flat, but is sufficiently flexible for easy reading and will likely improve with use. My only complaint is that the paper could be more opaque, but the reasonable weight (comfortable in the hand) and size of the bible (fits well into a standard medium-sized bible cover) are well worth the trade off.
Holman named this bible well--it will definitely be my new everyday go-to.
Anonymous5 Stars Out Of 5CSB Everyday Study Bible is for EVERYDAYOctober 19, 2018AnonymousQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This compact yet easy to read Bible has become one of my go tos for daily reading and study, as well as taking it to Bible studies. The notes are concise yet not overwhelming on the page. They do guide as well as challenge one to dig deeper.Print size of the notes is small but readable even with my over 60 y/o eyes with adequate lighting. The translation is as good as any for all intents and purposes though I know some have complained over pet issues. For good study and depth of understanding, no translation will be perfect thus requiring US to dig into the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek doing word studies. I do recommend this Bible and believe it will be most useful to anyone. The best Bible for you will be the one you pick up and read. This is a very good option.
