B&H Books HCSB Large Print Compact Bible, Black Bonded Leather

This Homan Christian Standard Bible in the Large Print Compact format strikes a marvelous balance between being easy to read and easy to carry. This handsome edition of the Holman CSB slips nicely into a coat pocket, briefcase, purse, or backpack and is a perfect gift for a person on the go who wants to keep the Word on hand at work or wherever they are. The HCSB is a translation that is considered to be both highly accurate and readable. The translation philosophy employed by the Holman CSB translators is "optimal equivalence", more accurate than a thought- for-thought translation and more readable than a word-for-word translation.

I love how the HCSB Compact Bible with Giant Print combines a highly useable size with an easily readable type face size.

This is not a large print bible. I would say it is normal sized print. The woman I purchased this for still had to use a magnifying glass with it!

The Bible itself is beautiful, really nice quality. But when it said 'large print' we were expecting much larger. Just be careful to note the actual size of the print (which is listed in description - which I didn't notice) to make sure it will be large enough for you! At any rate the Bible itself is a really nice size and will keep to 'gift' it to someone who has better eyesight!!!

I'm not sure I'm crazy about this translation...need to use it a while longer. The book itself is good quality. I think I might have been happier with a slightly less thick book in exchange for a slightly longer or wider book. The print is easy enough to read for a compact book. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase!

I just love this bible. The size is perfect for putting in your purse. The print is still not as big as my Cornerstone KJV pocket w/snap closure, but it is still readable. I treasure it and recommend it. The version is excellent and I have been using it a lot.
