HCSB Ultrathin Reference Bible– book review
Holman Christian Standard Bible was written by a team of over 100 scholars from over 17 denominations to maintain the original Biblical language, but also reflect contemporary English language. This Bible has a beautiful leather touch cover in blue with brown trim. One of the great features is a magnetic flap that keeps the Bible pages safe while in traveling to church. The format of this Bible is 2 columns with 9 point type. There are sub titles and 8 full color maps, as well as Jesus words’ are in red.
Holman Christian Standard Bible is used in children’s Bible drill programs in my church and my own children have used it for many years. The translation is very readable and great for memorizing. The language is understandable. I especially like the Psalms and how poetic this translation is.
This Bible is a good for everyday reading and studying- at any level from children to adults, including seminary. If you are looking for something new to brighten up your personal Bible study, try the Holman Christian Standard Bible.
