Lifeway recently sent me a new copy of the HCSB Study Bible for review. I like it, and wanted to share a way that you can get it cheap this weekend!
Just this morning, I used it in preparation for a message I'll be preaching in late December. The hardback edition comes with all the standard "bells and whistles" one would expect from a comprehensive study Bible (study notes, bullet points, cross-referencing tools, maps, book introductions and timelines) but also includes a fairly comprehensive word study tool. Its a great edition to the library of any serious student of Scripture, and also a great resource for pastors.
You can click here and buy it on Amazon. Or, if you are willing to brave Christmas shopping traffic (or if you already planned on being one of the crazies out in it anyway!) you can pick it up at any Lifeway store this Friday or Saturday for $10.00!
The HCSB is not my preferred translation (I use ESV when I preach), but it is certainly a solid and accurate reflection of both the Greek and Hebrew texts that I often consult when comparing translation approaches. Plus, the exegetical tools that come included with this study Bible make it well worth much more than the $10 you can get it for this weekend!
Have a great Thanksgiving holiday, and be careful out there on Friday! :)
