|good Dec 12, 2008|
|I haven't used it much yet but it looks good so far, I got the whole Holman set... Concordance, Commentary and Bibles (for me and the wife) because that's the version our small group is using. My only possible complaint is that I would like the type to be larger (eye's are getting old?) and for there to be less wasted white space on the pages (this is mainly in the Bibles as the smaller, pocket-sized, Bible was unreadable to me)|
|Unique Word Of God Bible Nov 10, 2007|
|This HCB is a unique, essentially literal translation. The rendering is almost the same as the ESV/NASB. This particular one is a smaller size and of imitation leather, with paperback pages. |
The outstanding features are the Red Letter Edition to Christ's words, as well as the lay out of important quotations from the Old Testament etc. The early Church hymn of Philippians 2 is also presented in a stanza form, as are many other helpful tidbits. Therein the wording helpfully reads: 'the emptying of Christ..' The maps are in color and their is a helpful addition of theologia at the back: an abbreviated dictionary, concordance and other study helps.
'Whatever He tears down cannot be rebuilt,
whoever He imprisons cannot be released.' Job 12:14
The rendering of He and His favorably appears with a capital H !
I have one mainly for the translation benefit is brings, as it is
clear and true to the original text.
|Definitely worth checking out! Dec 12, 2005|
|First, it goes without saying this is an excellent value. It provides a great opportunity to check out this new translation. |
The HCSB is one of only two new translations that I like (the other being the ESV). The only thing I don't like is its tendency to be a little too conversational at times.
On the other hand, the translators seem to place a high priority on accuracy (my one problem with the NIV, at times).
Bottom line: get a copy of the ESV and a copy of the HCSB and you'll have two great alternatives to the NIV (for those times when you want a change of pace).
|Excellent translation in between NASB and NIV Feb 20, 2005|
|I recently bought the HCSB and I am delighted with the translation. It is more literal than the NIV (New International Version) and more accurate, and yet it is more readable than the NASB (New American Standard). I liked this translation also because it is based on the Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia 5th edition (Hebrew OT) and the United Bible Societies' Greek New Testament 4th edition (Greek NT). The 100 scholars who translated this version are evangelical scholars who obviously have a high regard for Scripture and hold to the inerrancy of Scripture. I liked how the HCSB translated certain passages. I am relieved that translations of passages such of Dan. 7:13 are not so gender inclusive that it missed out on the whole Messianic reference (HCSB "One like a Son of Man" not like NRSV "one like a human being"). Another notable translation is Phil. 2: 6 ("did not regard equality with God as something to take advantage of"). I also liked how it translated 1 John 2:2 ("propitiation" instead of "expiation" for reference to Christ's atonement). A curious note in the O.T. is that sometimes the translators translate God's name as Yahweh and most other times it leaves it as LORD and GOD in capitals (e.g. Ps. 81:10; Ps. 83: 18). |
This is the most cost effective edition of this translation (the Gift & Award Bible) since it costs only $5, which is much less expensive than comparative Gift & Award equivalents for the NIV and NASB. I have purchased many of these Gift and Award HCSBs to give out to friends -- it is even less expensive than some New Testament versions. This Gift & Award edition is much less expensive than the red-letter text edition of the HCSB. If you want to purchase a less expensive edition of the HCSB just to read it and try it out, the Gift & Award is the way to go.
I highly recommend this translation! It is a worthy addition to the plethora of Bible translations out there. I would also highly recommend the English Standard Version as well (which is more expensive than the HCSB). If you like a low-cost Bible which is accurate and readable, try out the HCSB! Like the English Standard Version, it is a nice cross between the NIV and NASB.
|Very good Bible for the price Jun 23, 2004|
|From what I have read so far, the HCSB seems to be a good translation. I would recommend it for someone looking for the accuracy of the NASB, but readability of the NIV. |
This particular book is basically a paperback Bible with an imitation leather cover. The pages are made of the same paper as paperback books. This is the only paperback Bible I've ever seen with red-lettering. Just like other paperback Bibles, there is no book marker.
This would be a great Bible for a new Christian, for a confirmation or Sunday School gift, for a "first" Bible, for handing out to evangelize, or to just check out the HCSB translation (like what I'm doing with it). It isn't as nice as more expensive Bibles, however, considering that it only costs $5, it is a very nice Bible for the money.
