I paid so little for this Bible I didnt know what to expect but I am so pleased. The cover is pretty and soft in your hand. The Bible is well made and the print is very easy to read. I have been reading the ESV but I am very pleased with the HCSB. For the value it cant be beat.
I bought this Bible for myself in the Mantova blue edition. I got my name engraved on it and it's so pretty! The only thing that bothers me about the Bible is that the page number, book and chapter information is all at the bottom of the page. I would prefer it to be at the top but I'm slowly getting used to it being at the bottom. Other than that it's a wonderful translation, easy to read and the print is a nice size. I enjoy that the words of Christ are in red and that they use the name Yahweh in a lot of the Old Testament. Great Bible!
I have been using the HCSB for a few years now and it is what I teach out of. I have a very nice thin-line but sometimes the print is hard to read. Being 58 maybe that has something to do with it. But I found this and this is a new version of their Large Print Bibles and the font is very different but very readable. I like it a lot and have been using it now for a couple of weeks and it is much easier to read. I just wish the cover was a more flexible. There is another cover, but it smelled rubbery, and I really didn't care for it. This one was better. I really recommend this if you like the HCSB and need a larger print.
