Item Description...
It?s here. The complete edition of the translation so accurate, yet so inspiring to read, it literally sets the standard for generations to come. Twenty years in the making, the Holman Christian Standard Bible is the work of 100 scholars from around the world collaborating on-line, in real time with the benefits of the best technology that has ever been used in the service of Bible translation.

One reviewer observes that Holman CSB rushes to cut through communication filters and delivers the subject at hand in a very understandable and comfortable manner. God?s Word comes through with power and confidence through carefully selected phrases and natural sounding idioms. All of this while placing the highest premium in giving to the reader the full range of meaning contain in the original languages.

Holman, America?s first Bible publisher, pioneered in the development of an UltraThin Bible, over two decades ago by finding just the right paper and a type face that made possible the optimal combination of clarity and portability.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very happy with this bible  Nov 12, 2008
This bible is everything that I expected it to be. Firstly, I must say that it was delivered to me promptly and it was very well packaged.
The bible itself is fast becoming one of my favourites to read. Very happy indeed. I would recommend this bible for those who need an easier translation in modern language, while wanting to remain close as possible to the original meaning.
Cross-reference font too distracting, disrupts readability  May 9, 2008
The Holman version is a strong, albeit peculiar translation of the Bible. I like some of the choices they have made in breaking away from traditional translations of some texts (ie. John 3:16 'God loved the world in this way' and using the divine name, Yahweh, instead of small caps 'Lord' in some instances in the OT). But for every step forward, I think they've taken a step back as well. The choice to break away from traditional rendering make it harder to use in a multi-translation setting. Plus, I've come across several passages where I felt like the HCSB missed the point of the passage where most other translations have gotten it right. From a translation perspective, I'd still recommend the NIV and ESV over the Holman version, but the Holman version has plenty to commend itself.

As for this particular Bible, I ordered it and found that there are so many cross-references and the superscript font stands out so much that it was distracting trying to read. The size is good for a reference Bible.
Need Good Eyes!  Jan 23, 2008
The Holman UltraThin Reference Bible: Holman Christian Standard Bible, UltraThin Reference, Burgundy Bonded Leather

Like all the other reviewers have said, this translation is excellent. It's more literal than the NIV, yet more readable. You'll also find that it's a little more idiomatic than the NIV. For example, in Matthew 5:22 it reads:

"But I tell you, everyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Fool!' will be subject to the Sanhedrin. But whoever says, 'You moron!' will be subject to hellfire."

Most other translations, including the NIV and the NASB, will read 'You fool!' rather than 'You moron!' Interestingly enough, the the New Living Translation (NLT) uses the word 'idiot'.

Also, in Genesis story of the flood, the word 'deluge' is used . . . not 'flood.' This word choice is odd especially since the word 'deluge' is rarely used today.

Aside from the HCSB being more accurate and more readable than the NIV, the translators of the HCSB chose to capitalize all pronouns referencing God and Jesus. For me, personally, this is a huge plus! I know the Greek and Hebrew manuscripts don't capitalize these words, but there are a lot of serious students as well as scholars who believe just out of respect for our Creator and His Son that this should be done. The translators of the NASB, the NKJV, and the NLT have also chosen to do this.

Another big plus for this translation is that the translators have included footnotes indicating textual variances, much similar to what the translators of the NKJV have done.

The book binding is very good and lays relatively flat when you open it up and lay on your desk. The paper quality is just right so that the pages don't curl up nor do see the wording on the backside of the pages.

However . . . the print is very small. It has to be a 8-point font or less and the footnotes is even smaller!

So, if you're an older individual like me who wears bifocals, you may have a problem here. I went ahead and ordered the large print edition.

Bottom-line: This Bible is very accurate and very readable and of excellent quality. I'd give this Bible a 5-star rating except for the small print.
Portable!  Jan 19, 2008
Portable! No notes but excellent HCSB translation, excellent cross-references and good concordance in an ultra-thin package. Moderate and basic.
perfect for on the go   Jun 28, 2007
