Realy good for the beginner in apologetics. If you believe God is taking you in that direction, this is a good place to start.

I have purchased many bibles in the $20-$30, range all of which have excellent covers and bindings, but he two hcsb bibles I recently purchased are the exception. The HCSB Apologetics Study Bible has very poor craftmanship. The paper is warped rather than smooth, it looks and feels like there are large wrinkles or bubbles on the pages. The cover also has bubbles in it that that are very noticeable along with a very large gap on the top seam where the grey material is stitched to the black. The study notes need to be considered carefully. I thought I was purchasing a study bible that would teach my daughter more about defending our faith, how do the notes about about whether or not there will be sex in heaven do this? Any bible student needs to take care with any study notes in any bible but much more with this particular study bible. So while I have no big problem with this particular translation, I rated it very low because of the extremely poor quality of the study features and down right negligence of the craftmanship. This bible will not last very long and needs to be handled with care.

This Bible has a very great number of helps and notes to assist a believer in knowing and sharing why he or she is a Christian. Solid Biblical based throughout. Quality of binding is amazing. Very nice presentation page and alive box. Great graduation gift for any person already in or contemplating Jesus Christ!

The only problem I have is the craftsmanship. The binding was not aligned correctly before it was glued together. Other than that it is a great Bible.
