I must say i did a lot of searching before i came to the decision of purchasing this bible. I was looking for something that wouldn't slow me down with old English but that was also true to the original manuscripts. I'm not a bible scholar by any means, but from my experience so far this is the one. Full of pictures, maps, related topics and quotes, it helps with understanding what happened where and when without overdoing it. And is not a young teenie bible where they try to relate everything to problems in school. For me the one thing it was missing is the Apocrypha...noting that there are important historical puzzle pieces found in them...i think it would have been a good idea to include them like early bible editions did, instead of just referencing them. But i found that the pros outweighed the cons and it's worth the small price. I definitely recommend this bible over the KJV or NIV for reasons that you can read about elsewhere. By the way the pages are very thin which i don't mind but others may, the simulated leather is very nice, silver leafed pages, and lays open easily...two thumbs up...hope i don't get sued by Ebert.

I love this translation. I'm giving it five stars because it's such a great translation, but I do want to interject here, before I get started with the important stuff, that "imitation leather" is a . . . hmm . . . generous description of the binding. Don't misunderstand--I love the binding. It's durable and attractive and flexible and looks to be hard wearing. I haven't damaged it yet and I've used it quite a lot. It's just not very leather-like.

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.

I've owned lots of versions and this is hands down the best. It gives hundreds of historical facts that help ground your faith; photos, comparison of world religions, timelines, charts, quotes, and questions. Nice compact format.

HCSB! The HCSB is a very promising translation. It reads like the NIV and has the accuracy of the NKJV. This student bible may not qualify as a full-blown study bible (it could use cross-references and more notes) but it is a great work. Conservative & basic.

My 14 y.o. son really has liked the style, illustrations and language of this particular bible. It's easy to carry, hold in a lap, and study . He commented on liking the texture of the bible cover and the color. highly recommend it.

I purchased this Bible for use on Sundays to follow along with my minister, since this is the version he uses. I love the study part of the Bible along with being able to keep up with each message on Sundays.
