Should have many more readable notes from Spurgeon. The green makes them even more difficult to read. No red letter verses.
Bud5 Stars Out Of 5CSB surgeon Bible Genuine LeatherJuly 13, 2018BudQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Regarding the translation, as with all bibles thoroughly research the CSB version; on a personal level I think it reads beautifully and has been faithfully translated. This bible has both a sewn binding and a goatskin cover and is the least expensive I've ever seen in a bible with these features, especially with decent paper. Some of the green 'Spurgeon' handwriting is a bit difficult to read in certain lighting conditions. The Spurgeon insights are amazing, and I believe Alistair Begg did a wonderful job ensuring the pertinent information is there without the bible being overwhelmingly large, which it could be if you included Spurgeon's thoughts on every verse. The bible has an extensive concordance, but if you're missing the cross references pull out your phone with a handy app. and that issue is easily addressed.
KarencUSAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5CSB Spurgeon Study Bible Genuine Leather IndexedJune 25, 2018KarencUSAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Greetings to you. I bought this Bible. In the short time I had it, I spent a lot of time in it. I was surprised how much I loved it, and I made a decision to begin writing in it early on as I began a Genesis study. I'm already attached to this Bible. The Bible text font is pleasant. A long time ago, I had read something written by Charles Spurgeon and felt he wrote carefully; that is, it is obvious he spent a great deal of time in the Word. So, while I have just started reading these Bible notes, I am enjoying what I read so far. I believe this is also my first update CBS Bible, and for the most part, I'm happy with what I am seeing in verses (including their text footnotes at the bottom) that I always check. I do understand this Spurgeon Bible will be available later in the KJV. I think that will be a great thing too. By the way, the leather is very, very, nice. Holman's indexing tabs are beautiful. It has two ribbons (black and red), there is even red stitching on inside cover, while the outside black leather cover has black thread around it (very nice impressive feat), and has many nice features about it. If one wanted to go cheaper, I did look at the burgundy one close up too. It is also beautiful, but it is not leather, but vinyl. Very well made as well. May the Lord Jesus bless you all beyond measure.
KeithDayton, OhioAge: 45-54Gender: Male3 Stars Out Of 5What Was The Goal?June 15, 2018KeithDayton, OhioAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I'll spare people on the man, Charles Spurgeon himself. Most likely you know of him if you are looking at this product. The Bible construction and print are wonderful. My issue is with the content. I'm not sure if it had to make a deadline for publication or the editor just thought he could get by with slopping something together and rely on Spurgeon's name to sell it. First, we all know Spurgeon was a man of many words, both audible and pen and ink. Why then, are the annotations so few? Twenty sermon outlines for an entire study Bible? The man wrote close to 4,000. I would have gladly waited another year if that meant putting together a team that could produce a worthy study Bible for such a great man of God. In this edition you will not find center column refrences, a must for serious study. This is not a Bible to use for serious study, a shame because had they honored Spurgeon right it could have been fantastic. I think they hastily slopped together a Bible, attatched Spurgeon's name and relied on his name to do the rest. Another publisher could easily take up the job and put this miserable effort out of print. I think Holman went in blind and hoped with Spurgeon name and the trashed HCSB to CSB, people would buy into the product. With the CSB, you also are getting another gender friendly translation. It is not the HCSB by any means.
