If you are searching for the perfect study Bible the HCSB Study Bible is the best of the best! I received this hardback version for review and it is magnificent in every way. This is a beautiful Bible inside and out. This is the first color Bible I have ever owned. It adds so much to the reading of the Word. It's inviting and astounding. I have loved just sitting and turning page after page in amazement.
With each new Book of the Bible there is an extensive outline. The maps are surreal and lively. The Word is printed clearly and precise. It is easy to understand. I have read through the NIV, the Message, NKJV, NLT and many more. This is the ultimate Bible when it comes to understanding and study. This Bible is in depth. It covers everything imaginable and brings you to being encouraged to study the Word daily. Seriously, you open this Bible and you can't get enough.
I love the color photos. There is even a Greek study! Throughout the Bible you uncover the meaning of the Greek words that bring so much clarity to the Word. I can tell you that if I were purchasing a Bible for study this would be my top pick!

"For God so loved the world in this way: He gave His One and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
"And not only that, but we also rejoice in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance, endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. This hope will not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us." Romans 5:3-5
