Study Bibles for Expositors--The Holman Christian Standard Study Bible (HCSB)--Holman Bible Publishers
This study Bible is the sixth one that I will review. Several years ago I ran across a garage sale where due to some very unfortunate events a man had compromised his ministry and his family was selling all of his books, commentaries, and Bibles. While I did find some very useful books at dirt-cheap prices, I did not want to purchase the Bibles because there was a little something sacred about them even though this man was not of my doctrinal persuasion. As I was about to leave, his ex-wife came over and gave me a copy of a very nice leather bound Holman Christian Standard Bible that was just plain text with a single reference column. I started to read it some weeks later and found it to be a thought-provoking translation.
