Quite interesting book caught my eyes first time I saw it though heavy, but good for those doing biblical studies. Like its font and some of the explanations also, easy to follow.

There are lot's of good side-bar topics covered, written by knowledgeable people. The charts at the end of the book deal with timely subjects.

One exceptional difference that is immediately notable with this bible is its clarity, simplicity yet highly maintaining the meanings of each verse from Genesis to Revelation! Reading the foreward and the how Holmann's team - very fine team of apologetics experts - would immediately reassure you of the non-compromising tendencies and positions that is resonant amongst some of the versions churned out nowadays! Good tree produces good fruits and that is what you will get in the Holmann's CSB. So reviewing the list of the contributors to this bible will immediately reassure one of its sacredness. No involvement of diluters of the word of God and scripture-torturers like TBN and "god-channel" "teachers", mega-star Joel Hosteen, Benny Hinn, T.D jakes, Creflo Dollar, Joyce Myer, Cerrullo or Ashimolowo (Word/Faith & prosperity movement icon rapidly gaining popularity in the European/African hemisphere) et al - but heavy contribution from trusted expositors of the word of God, Josh Mcdowell Ted Cabel, Paul H. Copan, JP Moreland, Chuck Colson, Norman Geisler, Hank Hanegraaf, Ravi Zacharias, Phil Johnson and many many more....

I loooooove the "Twisted Scriptures" notes that is interspersed all over some verses within the Bible, which is more of an denominational alert of dodgy teachings of various "christian" movements! Without a doubt, the authority of the Bible and its interpretation is vehemently preserved with the HCSB and with facts rather than just accept it type explanation.

More interesting is the depth of explanations to many areas of contentions! How they achieved this without the excessive waffling highly indicates the superior knowledge of these experts, praise God for them! As a Christian that has had series of experience with "bent organisations/movements" and know the varied slants given to aspects of the bible depending on the movements precious inherited (prophet/esses non-biblical) doctrines, which brings about 'missing-the-point' positions therefore misconception of God and then false doctrines altogether, I am very proud of the HCSB which counters the more sophisticated but highly misguided generation of so-called (21st century...) ministers or preachers!

Any aspiring Christian apologisers, lovers of biblical language and most importantly, interested people in what the bible truly says must have this as part of their daily devotional resource. Together with John MacArthur's Study bible (NKJV) as I have gives you a very important resources to truly understanding the bible one verse at a time! I highly recommend this Holmann's Apologetic Study bible if you are a student of the Word of our Living God!

No regrets here!

On the positive side, this uses a relatively new translation and it actually seems quite good as modern versions go.

On the negative side however, there was extreme disappointment over the contents that accompany the basic text.

The footnotes are not plentiful and many of the responses to "twisted scripture" (those parts of the Bible that are used by cults to boost their own peculiar and heretical views) are quite short and weak. An example of this is the short piece on John 1:1 and the anti-trinitarian doctrine of the Jehovah's Witnesses; I would hate to see an evangelical Christian stand up to a JW on the basis of this critique!

Some of the articles lack fire and conviction and don't actually give a good account of why believers believe what they do. This is probably due, in no small part, to the choice of contributors. Some are good and orthodox, others are so neo-evangelical that one wonders of there is any conviction at all.

Sadly, the world is still waiting for a good apologetics reference Bible. Meanwhile, there are many others that do it better: The Evidence Bible (Comfort); Ryrie; Baptist; Rice (now sadly out of print).
