Developed in direct response to what consumer focus groups asked for, only one study Bible delivers more than you'd expect-right where you'd expect it.

When reading a passage in the Bible, you shouldn't have to wonder where to find supporting reference notes and commentary that go along with it. That's why the HCSB Study Bible-featuring approximately 15,000 study notes-is designed so that every clarifying resource is there on the same page spread as the biblical text to which it refers. You'll never again forget what you were looking for, because the pertinent note, map, chart, word study, or illustration is already there. And when an even deeper view is desired, there are also introductions for each book, outlines, timelines, a topical concordance, and more.

For the growing believer whose desire is to know Scripture more intimately and live out its loving instruction, the HCSB Study Bible always keeps you and God on the same page.

From the Back Cover
"A marvelous tool"

"A solid translation, wonderful notes, beautiful illustrations, clear maps, and helpful tips on key words, the HCSB Study Bible is a marvelous tool to help open up even more the message of the Bible. A real gift to the church."
-- Darrell Bock research Professor of New Testament Studies, Dallas Theological Seminary

The HCSB Study Bible is the result of a decade of work by more than 75 biblical scholars, plus two years of extensive conversations conducted with a diverse group of study Bible users. The result is a study Bible that puts the emphasis where it must be--on making the Scriptures, God's written Word, clear and understandable. The study features are easy to navigate, and the text of Scripture is always the central focus. This, combined with the accuracy and accessibility of the HCSB translation, makes this the study Bible for the visual age.
