A Visual Study Bible For Today's Generation

We live in a visual society, where a picture is worth a thousand words. The way we gather, develop, and process information has changed in the last 50 years.  The Holman Illustrated Study Bible combines words and images to increase your knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures. You'll see more, discover more, and remember more.

What Was Real Life Once Can Change Yours Today

The things that made life "normal" for people in biblical times are lost to modern readers who have no idea how to get from Tarsus to Damascus and couldn't begin to know that Nahor was related to Laban or how long a "two stadia" walk would take. Yet, knowing this information can make the difference between understanding what God is saying to you and missing the point completely.

Discover The Bible That Reveals Life Then And Now

The Holman Illustrated Study Bible is the most informative Bible ever created for daily reading and study. It includes more maps, photos, charts, graphics, and helps than any other Bible ever published! Whether you are engaging in small group studies, church or personal study, this Bible will bring to life the Scriptures in a way you never thought possible!

Note: While the printed version of the Holman Illustrated Study Bible contains the HCSB biblical text, this module does not include the actual biblical text.  It contains all the Introductions, Indexes, and Notes of the printed version. The Bible Study Notes of this module can be linked to run in parallel with any Accordance Bible translation.

I like study bibles. My first was the Jerusalem bible which i bought in about 1974 and was my go for about 40 years. I also got both the jewish study bible and jewish annotated new testaments in hard copy. However as i started to use software i got the niv study bible first in windows and then on mac. my accordance library grew including the esv, noab and both editions if the jsb and jant study bibles and eventually the excellent holman bible atlas!

I mainly use accordance on my iPad and use the esv study bible in the second pane so that i can see maps as i read the bible text. When i saw the holman illustrated study bible has many of the maps from the the brilliant holman bible atlas, i decided to get it, especially as it was at a very attractive price.

First the maps.

First the maps.
There are about 95 maps that are common to both volumes though some of those have been cropped in the study bible.
There are about 10 maps which are unique to the study bible but about half are just crops from other images.
There are about 37 maps which are unique to the Holman atlas.

Images
The holman illustrated study bible has lots of images taken from a wide variety of styles. Many of these are duplicates of those in the atlas. However the vast majority are unique but i find that the quality is incredibly variable and many appear very pixilated when viewed full screen on an ipad.

Text
There are introductions to the books of the bible but these are quite different to those presented in conventional study bibles. The introductions each has a section titled 'God’s message in the book' which includes a sub-section called 'Christian worldview elements', then there are sections called 'Christ in...' (eg Genesis), 'God’s story', 'Literary features' and 'Original historical setting'. This last section isnt as detailed as in my other study bibles. Some may find the other sections helpful starting points as they offer a different slant to those book introductions found in conventional study bibles.

The study bible 'notes' to the actual bible text are minimal and are frequently just a sentence. There is often just one 'note' for a full chapter but most 'notes' have an image.

For example,, both these quotes are under a photograph:
In Exodus 14 the note occurs at verse 15 :
'Lake Timsah, possibly the place where the Hebrews crossed the Red Sea.'

The next note occurs at Exodus 15 verse 27:
'Date palms (15:27) near En-gedi on the Dead Sea.'

However within the notes are lots of tables which are very useful presenting summaries and links to themes etc. Compared to the atlas, the atlas has a considerable amount more information which is Well laid out, its just not organised around the biblical canon.

Summary
I got this resource so i could have the maps scroll with the bible text on my mobile devices and for this it is excellent, especially as many of the maps are duplicated, particularly in the gospels.
.
The study bible is also useful for the images to illustrate the text, though many images are of poor quality.

As a study bible, this doesn’t add much to the actual bible text and i will continue to use my other study bibles; esv, jsb and jant for the formal canon and noab for the apocrypha.

This study bible does have its uses But personally i dont find this to be anywhere near the 'most informative bible ever created for daily reading and study'!. It is not a substitute for the holman atlas which is still the best resource for maps and certainly not a substitute for one or more conventional study bibles which offer more detail as a first port of call for any form of study.

But it is certainly very, very illustrated!
