A Third Look at the HCSB (Holman Christian Standard Bible) Apologetics Study Bible
I read the Bible and it wakes me up!
I read the Word and my mind starts racing. My heart starts beating faster in anticipation of a new discovery, a new revelation of a truth that's been in this Book for 2,000 years but which I have never grasped before. I had heard that, the more time you spend in the Word, the more you get out of it. Well, now I know that it's true.
And that is the addictive part of it. Having your spiritual eyes opened to the truth of God's Word and the reality of His indwelling Presence is an exhilarating and refreshing experience. Hence the desire to keep diving into the Bible for more.
I do have two wishes for this Bible, though. First would be for a red letter version (yes, I know. Lazy me!), and the second would be for input in the notes from some other great and well-respected minds in the world of Christian Apologetics today: Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. James White, Dr. David Wood, Dr. Nabeel Qureshi and Sam Shamoun. Perhaps Holman can consider that for a future version.
But wish list aside, this is a great version and an excellent Study Bible. Two thumbs up, Holman and Lifeway!
