    i was excited to get this bible late this last summer. I love the NKJV translation but had often found the HCSB was very close and eased over stiff NKJV phrases to make memorizing a bit easier. Thank you! The study notes and "hard question" notes are very good. It is also a reasonable size for a large print study bible. It is no trouble to take to study groups, etc.

    I only gave four stars for two reasons; not all women need a "pretty" bible. I would have preferred a brown leather/indexed option -not teal. Second, why oh why not leave the pages white? They are too tinted for clear reading. I've kept this as it has many things going for it but oh how I wished it was as whtie and clear font as your Appologetics bible. if a later clearer presentation is published I will buy that one. The content is great!

    Lets look at the, "Study Bible for Women" in the HCSB translation, personal size edition, from Holman. It comes in a quality leathertouch, (synthetic leather) teal

    and brown cover . It was a very pleasant surprise to see some actual study aids as opposed to junk food. There is academic quality here. There are some notes on

    hermeneutics, theology, some original language notes and transliteration help. Most women's Bibles are pink and have a bunch of Osteen-esque, self help, self-esteem,

    feel good, prattle in them with little in the way of useful exegesis of scripture or how to apply it today. This study Bible has significant work in it from two

    established Christian women. Here are short biographies from Holman's site,

    "Dorothy Kelley Patterson is Professor of Theology in Womens Studies at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. She is a homemaker, popular

    speaker, and successful writer, editor, and compiler of numerous books including A Handbook for Ministers Wives, The Family, BeAttitudes for Women, and Touched by

    Greatness: Women in the Life of Moses. She is co-editor of the two volume Womens Evangelical Commentary:Old Testament and New Testament. Her husband Paige is

    President of Southwester Baptist Theological Seminary."


    "Rhonda Harrington Kelley is Presidents wife and Adjunct Professor of Womens Ministry at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in New Orleans, Louisiana. She is a

    frequent speaker for women as well as an author of books including Divine Disciple, Life Lessons for Women of the Bible, and Personal Holiness: A Biblical Study for

    Developing a Holy Lifestyle. She is co-editor of the three volume Womens Evangelical Library including Womens Evangelical Commentary: Old Testament, New Testament,

    and The Study Bible for Women. Her husband Chuck Kelley is President of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary."

    There is some of the fluff, don't get me wrong. It is just kept in its proper place and proportion. I think that women should find this very helpful. However, I am not

    a woman and am just commenting because I want one like this for men.

    Here is what the Publisher has to say about this Bible,

    "Publisher's Description

    The Study Bible for Women will equip you to reach deep into Gods Word. Perhaps the single most powerful aspect of this Bible are the threads of specialized study

    thoughtfully woven throughout, pointing you to Gods larger story and allowing the Holy Spirit to write His revealed truths on your heart.

    In The Study Bible for Women, personal size edition youll join a host of other women, all academically trained in the original languages of the Bible and passionate

    about Gods Word, for an intimately deep dive into Scripture that will equip you to unlock the riches and majesty of His Word, and ignite a passion to mentor others in

    your life to do the same. The Study Bible for Women includes the full text of the Holman Christian Standard Bible, a clear, contemporary English translation that's

    faithful to the original languages of the Bible.

    Features include extensive commentary notes, word studies, answers to hard questions, doctrinal notes, Biblical womanhood articles, character profiles, Written on My

    Heart applications, extensive book introductions, presentation pages, in-text maps, charts & time-lines, full-color maps section and concordance."

    The Bible was shipped in a cardboard box with paper packing material. The Bible was inside a two piece retail box. It arrived undamaged and in good condition. I can't

    stress enough that this is not some cheap synthetic leather, nor is it some hard, shiny, pigskin leather you would find on other Bibles in this price range. This is a

    good quality synthetic cover. The spine is hot stamped with, "HCSB" at the top, "The Study Bible for Women" orientated horizontally along the spine in the middle, and

    at the bottom is the Holman logo. The page edges are silver. The pages are white with a faded blue color that becomes more solid as you approach the page edges and

    perimeter of the page. The paper is 30 g.s.m. making it pretty opaque. Lighter paper would not have been good. With this weight of paper you don't have much in the way

    of ghosting (seeing the text on the backside of the page show through) There are numerous decorative designs throughout. I don't know what your opinion is of that, but

    I could do without them. The font used for the main text is 8.5 point in ITC Clearface Standard. (Open-type) This makes it easy on they eyes unless you have bad

    eyesight. The coloring of the page perimeters could cut down on the contrast of the text to the paper. The paper could be a little brighter white where the text is,

    but then the perimeter effect would be lost. The text is laid out in a double column, paragraph format with the cross-references on the outside of the page instead of

    at the bottom or in a center column. Interspersed throughout are other features. The inside cover is made of paper of the same color and glued down. They did a good

    job with the corners. There is one ribbon marker and it is matching in color as well. The binding on this Bible is a South Korean, sewn binding. They have been doing a

    lot of Holman's bindings and are holding up quite well. This also makes them flexible on top of being durable. Way better than a glued binding.

    Even though this is a study Bible, I don't want you to be afraid that it is a behemoth. (funny right?) For a study Bible this thing is very manageable. In the

    personal size edition it is even more manageable than its full sized sister. It is just the right size for ladies who don't want to use a hand-truck to carry their

    study Bibles to Wednesday night Bible Study. I think it is a very good investment if you are looking for a women's study Bible that has good content instead of the

    motivational junk you get pushed on you nowadays.
