After a long time of waiting, I’m excited that the publishers have now released details on this upcoming and highly anticipated Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB) Study Bible!
This bible is going to be released in the US on October 1st, 2010.
Don’t know when it will ever reach Singapore though, as even the HCSB Apologetics Student Bible (released in February 2010 in the US) haven’t reached these shores yet. So if any one of you is going to come back from the US to Indonesia around October or November, if it’s not too much hassle I’d like your help on buying one of these for me. I’d even give you something for your efforts if you’d like.
I’ve been using the HCSB bibles for a long time now — as I have one HCSB Student Bible in my possession since about two years ago — and the translation is very good. Definitely better than the NIV in my opinion, I usually use the HCSB for in-depth studies of the Scripture., while using my NLT for casual reading (as it is lighter and easier to comprehend). This upcoming study bible is going to use the revised version of the HCSB text, so I believe it would be much better and enjoyable to read.
