    I purchased this Bible to help me with an Old Testament course I will be doing this winter. The notes at the bottom of the pages give information without going to other sources. I like the explanation of important Hebrew words. The type is slightly small, but readable. One problem is that the book does not lay flat, but I could only afford an economy Bible. I knew it did not have stitching on the seams, but the other aspects are more important. For example, the map inserted right beside the story of Elijah and Elisha is helpful, instead of looking at the maps in the back.

    I was shocked to find that it was packed with information just like my full sized one. It is light weight and easy to carry to and fro without bulk. The print is rather small but not to bad for older eyes. I enjoy the type of pages with study helps, maps, commentary just like my full sized one.

    This Bible is everything that you need for your personal study or for your Bible Study classes. A month or two ago I ordered the HCSB Large Print Bible (it weighs almost 6#) and it is a wonderful resource to answer any questions that you might have. The commentary, Illustrations and maps are amazing! It was on sale at the time for an unbelieveable price which sweetened the purchase.

    I ordered and just received the HCSB Study Bible Personal Size which weighs only about 2#. I was not sure, after reading one review, about the size of the print but I am pleased to say that the size of the print is just fine!

    I am 68 years old, I use bifocals and will not have any problem reading this print size. I would encourage you to purchase this Personal Size Bible.

    I will cherish the two different sizes of this Bible for many years to come. I recommend it very highly and would encourage you to purchase either

    size. I think you will be blessed.

    The publisher notes that this Bible contains comprehensive study notes, full-color maps and reconstructions, and word studies in Greek and Hebrew. They have not overstated their presence. The study notes are useful and insightful. The word studies give pronunciation, uses, and focus passage with a short discussion relevant to the term examined. There are also timelines which I find helpful to keep events and kings sorted out, as are the charts found throughout the entire text that summarize or categorize different areas. Essays, book introductions and other available features make this an excellent study Bible. The translation philosophy is given in the introductory sections. The Biblical text reads easily and plainly. I recommend this translation and the study aids found here as an excellent study Bible.

    There is one point that I cannot recommend for this particular volume, the Personal Size edition. It is listed as a personal size Bible and the size is indeed that. The issue is that in going for a smaller size the text had to be reduced. I found it very difficult to read comfortably from this size page and font. The cross references and notes are for young eyes only and in optimum light. I would not buy this size volume. That said, I would invest in this study Bible in its full size version without hesitation.

    So this is a mixed review. Great material in a package (the Personal Size) that has a very limited audience.

    Therefore, the final verdict is left for the individual to decide. If you have no problem reading fine print this one will be OK for you. For the rest of us, go ahead and spend for the larger version.

    This book was provided by the publisher in return for a review.

    To me this is the best Study Bible and size that's out there. The commentaries are conservative and the translation is one of the best I've seen. This translation is word for word but clearer than lets say the ESV and even than the NIV. It fits between the ESV and NIV.
