B&H Books Holman Christian Standard Gift & Award Bible, Imitation leather, Black

Packed full of special features and priced for bulk buying, the HCSB® Gift and Award Bible brings the excitement of a new translation into Bible giving. As a milestone and achievement award for young people in church or school programs, this fresh alternative makes the Bible an even more anticipated present.

More than fifteen years in the making, crafted by the shared expertise of nearly a hundred conservative scholars and English stylists, the HCSB® is the new standard in painstaking biblical accuracy and pure literary form. As students use it in Sunday School and worship services, in personal devotions and school classes, they won't be left afloat either by watered-down verse wordings or by sentence structures beyond their years. Instead they'll be encouraged to dig into the Scriptures, but with the right kind of tool in hand.

Features:
  • Presentation page
  • Favorite Bible Stories
  • Plan of Salvation
  • Words of Christ in red
  • Full-color maps
  • Textual Footnotes
  • Double-column format
  • 7.5 point text
  • History of the Bible
  • Topical Concordance
  • Bible Dictionary

Wanted to get a cheap set of Bibles for our youth area to replace the cheap set of paperbacks I purchased years ago. Got what I paid for, so I can't really complain, but those seeking Bibles to be used very much may want to pay a little more. The pages seem very cheap and the binding looks like it will not last long.

I love the price of the book and so I can't really complain. I just wish the font was larger and the words were darker in print.

I purchased these for our church's teen group because we needed something that was very understandable but didn't lose the depth of meaning of the original Message. This Bible also has footnotes and explanatory notes. If you are looking for an easily understandable translation that doesn't lose the beauty of the Message, I recommend this to you.
