B&H Books HCSB Giant Print Bible, Imitation leather, burgundy

As Baby Boomers (the generation born from 1946 to 1964) reaches their mid fifties and beyond (more than 80 million over the next forty years), large print resources will be increasingly important to them. Not only the normal aging effects come into play but the fact that this generation has experienced greater eye fatigue, due to large number of hours working in front of computer screens. This is a full reference Bible with a very clear and comfortable 14-point typeface, presented in a two-column format with end-of-paragraph cross references.

Features include:

  • Presentation Page
  • Family records section
  • 14 Point text
  • Two-Column format
  • End-of-paragraph references
  • Words of Christ in red
  • HCSB Bullet Notes
  • Plan of Salvation
  • Where to Turn seciton
  • Table of Weights & Measures
  • Topical Concordance
  • 8 full-color maps
  • Imitation Burgundy

There is actually a much larger reference Bible than this one, which I thought that I was purchasing at first, but when this one arrived I was still very pleased! It's a bulkier Bible, and still has quite a bit larger than average font size.
I gifted this to my Mother, and it has been a lot easier for her to read the bible ever since.
In the future I would like to get an even bigger font for her!

I don't use this particular Bible every day, but my impression is that it does have good binding quality.
This print is large AND dark. Truly easy to read, especially if the lighting is low, that is important.
The translation is also accurate yet modern. I have bought some HCSB for friends. If you wonder about the translation you can check it out on Bible Gateway online and the Baker web site.

The feature that stood out the most was the size of the print and I like it for that reason.It doesn't omit CAPITALIZING of the pronouns in the book of Isaiah ch. 42.It is easily readable. ----Al P.

I purchase all of my Bibles for study purposes. I find it very useful to have a Bible which I have no trouble seeing the words. I wish all of my bibles had this size print. My mother (who is 84) finds that she can see the words through her cataract.

I love the translation and the 14 point type is easy to read but the binding is very poor and falls apart. I returned one and got another and it is doing the same thing. You would expect better from Holman Publishers.
