    For those who would like to add to their library of Bibles; I was in the Life Way Store in Fayetteville NC yesterday (I assume they all offer the same promotions). Life Way was featuring the HCSB in the original red, hardback edition for $7.97 (regularly sold there at $14.95). That is about as inexpensive as a hardcover Bible will get. BruceB

    Yeah I paid full price for it last spring! I think they are trying to dump off the first printing because of all the typos and misprints. Christmas is a good time to do it. The plain cover pew Bibles have the same mistakes. they are the same price at our LifeWay.

    I picked up the hardback on ebay for $3.00 plus $2.00 shipping. The cover was a little loose, but no marks in the Bible. Good enough to read.

    I have not read much yet (most I have read was from the $2 paperback NT's they were selling to get people to like it.) Where are some of the major typo's Eaglewing--I want to see if mine has them. If you don't know off-hand, don't bother trying to locate any.
    Thx,
    Phillip

    Hey, Lamentations is interesting. It has the Hebrew letter at the top of each portion with its English pronunciation. Exmp: "Alef", "Bet" (don't have the fonts or know how to type them for the Hebrew, if I did.)

    About Bullet notes, mine has a lot of footnotes. For example: "Rev. 13-1 Other mss read: heads was a blasphemous name"

    The 2003 edition of the HCSB can be downloaded for free along with 21 other English translations of the Bible into a free Bible study program that includes four Greek texts of the N.T., the LXX, several multi-volume commentaries on the Bible, Bible dictionaries, Bible encyclopedias, and other references. Also included with this free program are a hymnal, Bible atlas, Bible art, many Christian classics, and other goodies--all for free at http://e-sword.net/

    Page # 857 & 858 the references at the top should refer to Mk. 11:23 and 24, Instead it is Mk. 10:23 and 24. Same on page # 872 should be Lk 5:16 but reads Lk 3:16. Also on page 1070, one of the titles of Jesus is "Source of LifeWay Network User...Acts 3:15" but Acts 3:15 just says "Source of Life." I guy at church said he found an Old Testament page where the footnotes are labeled wrong but I don't remember where? I will ask him today at Sunday School. I have not found any typos in the text it's self but their may be some. Just the 3 I mentioned make me believe that LifeWay/Holman rushed it to print?

    Also on page 1073 Lazurus is listed as bing raised in Luke 11 not John 11. Here is a thread on the topic of typos from back in October it is listed on page 5 of the versions forum.
    HCSB Typos

    I gave my wife a leather bound thin line reference edition a few months ago and I gave my brother the Sportsman's edition. They haven't told me of any errors. I think it is just red ones and plain cover pew bibles.
    I've used my red Hard back alot and the binding broke a few weeks ago. A little Gorilla Glue and it is bound better than ever.
    I can't fault people for typos, my post are full of them. But then again I don't sell these post to people either.
