Holman Bible Publishers HCSB Study Bible, Black/Gray Simulated Leather, Thumb-Indexed

When reading a passage in the Bible, you shouldn't have to wonder where to find supporting reference notes and commentary that go along with it. That’s why the HCSB Study Bible-featuring approximately 15,000 study notes-is designed so that every clarifying resource is there on the same page spread as the biblical text to which it refers. You’ll never again forget what you were looking for, because the pertinent note, map, chart, word study, or illustration is already there. And when an even deeper view is desired, there are also introductions for each book, outlines and timelines, a concordance, and more. For the growing believer whose desire is to know Scripture more intimately and live out its loving instruction, the HCSB Study Bible always keeps you and God on the same page.

This bible has everything for study and understanding right there in the text. Love the maps in the text also. This version is very easy to read and I find it accurate for meaning. Take the time to read all the intro sections, very informative. Binding is great...the only neg...no thorough concordance. Portable...like taking a library of study books with you only no bulk.

This is perhaps the most beautiful Bible I've ever seen, so why only three stars? It lost one star for not being red letter, and another star for a small, useless topical concordance. Really, a study Bible with a topical concordance, a small one at that? I want to track a remembered word and find its scripture. The Bible itself is awesome. A beautiful cover that allows the Bible to lay flat whether in Genesis or Revelation. It is a big, heavy Bible. The pictures, in text maps and diagrams are in stunning color on thin, regular Bible pages! The traditional maps at the back of the Bible are beautiful. Georgeous use of color throughout with verse numbers in blue, though a rather pale blue, to help you find them in paragragh format. Double column paragraph format sure makes it easier to read. Fonts are readable. Pertinent Hebrew and Greek words are defined on the page. Notes are on the same page as scriptures with only an occassional few that have you turn elsewhwere. I love the HCS translation and the respect it shows God by capitalizing His pronouns-- all translations should do so. I thought I had found the perfect Bible and could have lived with the black letter but can't live with a study Bible without a decent regular concordance. What a shame.
