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

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.

  • Presentation page
  • Favorite Bible Stories

  • Full-color maps
  • Textual Footnotes
  • Double-column format

I really like this Bible and this translation. I like to read the Bible through each year and try a different translation. The print is really small though so can't get by without my reading glasses!

This is an adequate version for both simply reading and in depth study.In the attempt to make it easier to understand some of the wording slides a bit off of center in interpretation but not so much as to make it useless.

They are good Bibles and inexpensive so I could buy many of them to spread the Word of God and His Great Love for us.

Nice product for the price. These were purchased for our children's department. This translation is both accurate and easy to understand in today's modern language.

Very accurate version. Better than NASB, NIV, NKJV, and ESV.
