Before I bought this bible (I got it at a bookstore) I sat and read most of the Gospel of John, which is a book I know very well. I was nothing but impressed with the ease of reading and yet depth of this translation. My previous favorite, the New King James is still a wonderful translation. I love my Amplified. The RSV is great, but though I'd hate to be without any of them, I love this one best.
I don't read Greek or Hebrew, so I certainly can't give a commentary on the accuracy of the translation except as compares to other well-spoken-of translations, but in that regard I would say it shines. It says the same things with usually pretty much the same implications, only it says them in a way that's instantly easier to grasp. (For me, anyway.)
It's not that I can't understand the others--even the AV, but they take more work and don't really provide any more meat so far as I can tell. Since it's going to take any of us quite a lot of time to individually parse each verse of the Bible, meditate on them all, look up the Strongs definitions of the key words, write our own commentaries, it's nice to have a translation like the HCSV that is a little more accessible.
My only complaint (and it's a biggie) is the lack of the cross-references so abundant and helpful in my NKJV.Read more ›
