WhitesaberArizonaAge: Over 65Gender: Male4 Stars Out Of 5HCSB Study BibleApril 11, 2020WhitesaberArizonaAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Bible is filled to the brim with notes, in-text maps, color photos, charts, definitions of key Hebrew and Greek words, and pictures of archaeological artifacts and ruins.
Each book has an introduction that summarizes the book along with a color picture pertaining to the book. There is also a timeline for each book in the introduction as well as an outline of the book at the end of the introduction. There are topical headings at the beginning of each chapter as well as throughout the chapter.
The paper is about average thickness for a study Bible. The text is large enough to read without hurting yourself.
The Holman Christian Standard Bible is a "thought for thought" rather than a "word for word" translation, making it ideal for someone who is new to the Bible or someone who wants a better understanding of the Bible than he/she can attain from a "word for word" translation such as the King James or the New American Standard.
Now for the negatives. The text is written in paragraph form, rather than starting each verse on a new line. The words of Christ are in black, rather than red.
I am impressed with my copy and recommend it to both the "rookie" and the "veteran". The notes and other features alone are worth the price.

This is it. I love the ease of use and good introductions to every book of the Bible. It's even better than I had imagined. It's larger than I had expected but it's my "at home" study Bible so that is fine with me. Really a great study Bible.
