B&H Books HCSB Men's Fraternity Bible

The Men’s Fraternity Bible will be a valued resource to men’s Bible study groups everywhere, especially among the 100,000 men across 5,000 groups worldwide now taking part in the Men’s Fraternity ministry based upon the video teachings of pastor Robert Lewis.

This gift boxed, personal size edition features the complete text of the popular Holman Christian Standard Bible® translation plus nearly one-hundred pages of concise, stirring notes from these Men’s Fraternity studies: The Quest for Authentic Manhood, Winning at Work and Home, and The Great Adventure.

Lewis says, “This Bible is intended to help you in two ways. First, it is offered to help you engage for yourself in the abiding and eternal Word of God. Secondly, it is designed to help you gain a richer, fuller, and more meaningful understanding of authentic manhood.

“Let me suggest you start your day reading this Bible and then reviewing one of the pages of notes I have provided for you on authentic manhood. Doing so will help you connect both to God and also to your desire to reach higher as a man. I believe this combination will not only make you a better man, but God’s man!”

I just HAD to write a review for this one! I have purchased many good Bibles from this ministry (That's what I call it), & I love them all, but I do not write much on here....That is until this little guy came into my life!! :) First, let me say that most importantly, the HCSB translation itself has NEVER got the full recognition that it deserves in the world of English Bibles!!! Maybe it's the lack of "saturating" advertising & publicity that other prominent translations have received, such as the ESV, or the NLT for just 2 examples. One can speculate as to the reason, but whatever it was, & still is, the Bible reading, & Bible-loving Christian world does NOT know what it is overlooking here!! As far as I am concerned, the HCSB is a Biblical masterpiece!! This is the version that brought me back to the Lord our God 3 years ago now, after a much too long of a separation from him!! (wasted years that brought me nothing but misery & heartbreak, I must say). Anyhow, Even with all the knowledge that God had given me concerning his beautiful word, reading the HCSB was like reading scripture for the very first time!! I could not put it down!! This version of scripture gave me a rapturous spiritual re-awakening & truly exhilerating experience with God our saviour!!! I was moved to tears as truths that I had never really noticed before seemed to leap right off the pages & into my yearning heart!! So yes, by ALL means, this version NEEDS to be more fully introduced & experienced by all believers with an open enough mind & heart to give it a fair reading!! I just feel sorry for all those KJV "Only-ers" out there who could discover so much more from the scriptures if they just opened their hearts. I was once one of them myself. But now to this particular little HCSB:......I love the color, for one. It is very well crafted. This Bible is very rugged good quality bonded leather. The overall size of the Bible is very pleasant. It's somewhat different than the usual compact size, & it fits nicely in the hand. I also really like the compass embossing on the cover. Nice touch! The print is crisp & clear, & very readable for a size 7 font. Bleed-through is minimal because the page thickness itself is commendable also. The red-lettering for Jesus' words is consistent, & comfortable for the eyes,...not "blindingly" bright, like some can be. The binding is nice & tight, & as for all the note pages about manhood,...There is definitely some very interesting points made, & thoughts to seriously ponder concerning a vast array of men-related issues intertwined in there! There are pages in the front, pages between the testaments, & pages in the rear of this Bible that are ALL good reading material. Mr. Lewis definitely makes a guy take a deeper look inside & do a little honest "soul-searching" on himself! Overall guys, this little Bible is a solid investment all the way around. for the price point on this particular edition,...you are not going to get any better than this!! Grab this one while they still have them available here!! My sincere thanks, & best wishes for abundant blessings for all who have taken the time to read this. I hope that I have been helpful in some small way perhaps. P.S. Spread the word about the HCSB!!! This translation is like a "Pearl of great price" hidden in a sea full of oysters!! God Bless!!! P.S.S. I am preparing to submit my 2nd order for this one, & have my name imprinted this time. That will look very nice!!

If you need a small personal Bible, this one fits the bill. The HCSB is a great translation and I really like it for my daily reading. The size of the Bible makes it easy to carry anywhere. The added feature of the materials from the Men's Fraternity studies is a priceless addition to the Bible. I am leading a group of men through the Quest for Authentic Manhood and the summarized notes in the Bible help me remember key points and they are always there as reminders later on.

The online description for this Bible is woefully inadequate.
When I saw what a blessing this Bible is. I ordered copies for my son and grandson; I found a comparable one for women and purchased copies for my daughter-in-law and granddaughter. I am so pleased to learn my son and his wife conduct daily devotions with their children using the Bibles I gave them.Both my son and his wife were raised with a Bible in hand and daily devotions with their fathers. Doug and I are pleased the acorn doesn't fall far from the tree.

I bought this bible for 3 of my 5 sons who are all part of the Men's Ministry at our church. The assistant to the men's department liked it so much in one of his sermons, he offered to buy this Bible for any man or young adult male who would like to have one! so I am ordering a case of 24!Praise God! For His "Word" will light a fire in your life!

This is a great Bible. It's convenient small size fits in my pocket. As a leader of Men's Fraternity in my church I have used the notes in our sessions of "The Quest". HCSB is an excellent translation. This is my "church" Bible. I use others for personal study but refer to this one frequently.
