g4 Stars Out Of 5May 2, 2017gQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2Love the CSB; love the ample number of references; not so happy with what is advertised as 'Large Print.'
I can barely read the references. 9.5 is not large print to me. 10.5 or 11 would be nice and could still have all those references. Otherwise for the price it is a nice Bible.
theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Nice CSB Ultrathin Reference Bible that is very inexpensive!May 1, 2017theChristianReviewerAge: 45-54Gender: MaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This CSB Ultrathin Reference Bible actually has been a very nice discovery. Especially considering the price is so low (for this particular binding). Granted this particular one is imitation leather, it still feels very nicely made and seems like it would hold up very well. This is a typical reference Bible and has a very nice concordance of 70 pages. I love how (like the HCSB, which is the CSB's predecessor) they put any Old Testament quotations in the New Testament in a bold font in addition to the cross references for them. Very unique and helpful. For the low price of this particular binding of this Bible, you get a very good quality for the money. I would recommend this one for sure. I will do a separate post on my blog to go over the actual text of the Christian Standard Bible as well, which so far is looking pretty positive. I received a copy of this reference Bible in exchange for my honest review.
Lee5 Stars Out Of 5CSB Large Print Ultrathin Reference Bible, Black Premium Leather, Black Letter EditionApril 29, 2017LeeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This Bible is certainly superior quality throughout. The leather is truly premium, the paper is thin but not to thin where there is a bleed through, and the size is great making it easy to handle. The print is large enough for comfortable personal reading, for a teacher in a class room, or a pastor in the pulpit, such as myself.
My only complaint is I think the publisher should have used more discretion regarding the center column references. They are a bit difficult to read for anyone with good eyesight or proper corrective lenses. The publisher should have made the Bible just a trifle larger perhaps a quarter to half inch in order to use a more clear type on references.
W. Scott PlavnickMississauga, ONAge: 45-54Gender: male1 Stars Out Of 5Disappointed with the CSBApril 13, 2017W. Scott PlavnickMississauga, ONAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1As a pastor, I have used HCSB since 2004 in private and public ministry. I just bought a CSB, and notice these significant changes:
1. In an apparent gender accommodation, CSB uses "brothers and sisters" 150 times where HCSB used only "brothers". THIS IS VERY CONCERNING. When LifeWay shifted from the NIV, we were told that the main reason was that Zondervan was taking the NIV more "gender neutral". Now LifeWay appears to be following this same road. (At least CSB doesn't make "he" plural to "they", which NIV does often.)
2. CSB switches back from "languages" to "tongues" (at least in Acts 2:42; 10:46; 19:6, 1 Corinthians 12:10, 28, 30; 14:2, 4, 5, 6, 13, 14, 18, 19, 22, 23, 26, 27). It is particularly indicting that when CSB wanted to be very clear about other languages in this discussion on spiritual gifts, they used "languages"! (1 Corinthians 14:10+11) This appears to be pandering to the Charismatics and Pentecostals. I can't believe anyone thinks this archaic phrase is more current or clear!
3. CSB dropped the capitalization of pronouns for God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Since Greek is more specific in pronoun use than English, I find capitalizing pronouns for God a VERY HELPFUL and accurate clarification.
4. CSB eliminates the word Yahweh, using LORD instead. HCSB used Yahweh 611 times!
5. CSB changes HCSB's "Messiah" to "Christ" about 75 times. CSB never uses "Messiah" after the book of Acts.
6. Though CSB keeps the HCSB wording of John 3:16, "For God loved the world in this way: He gave...", CSB eliminates HCSB 2010's long explanatory footnote, which I thought was VERY GOOD, and they reverse direction with a new footnote saying, "or this much". THIS IS VERY TROUBLING!!!
7. CSB dropped it's bullet notes, which I found VERY HELPFUL, especially for unbelievers and new believers.
jar of clayStoughton, WIAge: 55-65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Great Translation, Quality Bible with One ReservationApril 10, 2017jar of clayStoughton, WIAge: 55-65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you are interested in a translation which reads as literally as possible, yet utilizes natural English, the Christian Standard Bible is the only version available to fit these criteria to a tee. It is my favorite translation and one which I trust as accurate and yet understandable. The CSB Large Print Ultrathin Reference Bible (my copy has the British Tan Leather Touch binding) has a quality binding, two ribbon markers and quality Bible paper with minimal bleed through. The Bible has a sewn spine and comes with the Holman lifetime guarantee. The CSB translation includes many translation notes, which give alternate or literal renderings, if the translators felt a more dynamic rendering would aid the reader's understanding. The phrase "brothers and sisters" is frequently used in the New Testament to address believers, where the HCSB translation may have used "brothers". The underlying Greek supports this change. Many other modern translations go way beyond this by removing masculine terms such as "him", "his", "son", "father" etc.; and replacing them with gender modified terms such as "them", "their", "child", "parent", etc. The CSB has chosen to be as gender inclusive as possible without violating the underlying Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek texts.
My only criticism, of this format, is that the cross-reference system uses tiny super-script letters in the text to refer to the scripture references in the center column. Holman really needs to return to their previous reference system which used bolded chapter and verse numbers to designate cross-references.
In short, this is a smooth reading and exceptionally accurate translation. I highly recommend it, with the one caution mentioned above. It is difficult to find this kind of accuracy, readability and quality at this price.
