Just got the study bible on Oct 11 2017 but, there's a few gripes I have. The pages are a MAJOR pain because they're really stuck together for the MOST part. I'm scared that the pages may rip if I don't peel them apart just right. The font is a little small for my 53 year old eyes to read for any long period. HOPE THERE'S A LARGE PRINT PREMIUM LEATHER BOUND one coming out soon! (the word going around is that the HCSB is going out to be replaced by the CSB version) The so called "genuine leather" sure feels stiff and cheap. Might need some breaking in to soften it up a little.
What a great bible! It has exceeded our expectations in every way. We love the HCSB translation. It's easy to read while remIning true to the word of God. It is well designed and constructed. We love the book intros, study notes, translation of Greek & Hebrew words. It's maps and illustrations are beautifully done. And is an exteremely good value. Holman hit a homerun with this one!
