Reviews - What do our customers think?
Best available  Oct 30, 2005
All I want is a single-column NASB with minimal cross-references and reverse page see-through - i.e. I just want to interact with the Word in a simple format I'm used to, without distractions. These requirements are actually amazingly hard to find - but this Bible comes closest to it. The pages are thin and there is some reverse page see-through, but hopefully I'll get used to that. (If the publisher is watching, I think a bigger version with less reverse page see-through would sell well).
Burgundy and black covers available, although I think only black on this site.
Possibly the best NASU Bible I've ever seen   Sep 30, 2005
Let me expand on my review title. For a text oriented copy of the NASB, you'd be hard pressed to find a more enjoyable read of the scriptures. The single column, paragraph format is a welcome change from each verse being its own paragraph. (We don't write that way today, do we?) Minor quibbles: as other reviewers have stated, giving OT quotations footnote references, in my opinion, would have been a welcome addition to the notes. They hardly take up space. I would have preferred they ditch the introductions. We have plenty of other works like Bible Handbooks to consult for outlines and introductions. The Counselor's Topical Index could be useful in the right hands in the right circumstances, but I would have preferred some maps. The article "How Can I Have a Relationship With God?" seemed more geared toward somebody who already has an acquaintence with the scriptures. You can't assume that because the article was placed after the end of the NT that the reader will necessarily understand what he/she is reading. What if they turned here first? Perhaps a sermon by C.H. Spurgeon on repentance and faith would have better. Still, this is an excellent edition and I would commend any NAS reader to pickup a copy.
I second that!  May 13, 2004
I agree wholeheartedly with the review below. This is probably the best NASB in print. The combination of Single-Column formatting and paragraph format make it the most readable NASB. (most are two column and the notorious verse format). You will enjoy reading the poetry and OT prophets not oddly chopped in half like most other Bibles do. Bonded leather and gold trim round it out to make it a real winner. It does lack the cross-references, but if you have any other Bible, you can use those. The counselors index is also a nice addition. More useful than a bunch of maps.

As far as choice of translations, the NASB is not the only translation I read, but it is a good one. I teach the students in our Bible classes to avoid translations that have a philosophy of dynamic equivalence-- most notably the NIV. This is not because the NIV is a horrible Bible, but because it removes you one step further away from the original Word of God than you alredy are. You will fine many many places in the NIV that are not actually translated from the original text, but are "interpolated" by the translators. If you find the NASB choppy, try also the ESV or HCSB, which both strive to readable but literal, and do a great job.

Excellent Bible!  Aug 11, 2002
This Bible is wonderful. Not only is it NASB (probably the best translation available), but it also has only a single column! Some Bibles annoy me because they try to squeeze the text into two or more columns, squishing the text. The single column really enhances the readings of books such as Isaiah, Psalms, and Proverbs.

It's a great, inexpensive NASB Bible for casual reading, but definitely not a good study Bible (it wasn't made to be one, I don't think). It's just very nice and simple.

My biggest problem with the Bible was that it did not provide the references to quoted portions of the Old Testament in the New. Even a non-study Bible should have footnotes so we know where Jesus or Paul were quoted from in the Old Testament. They're in block lettering, and that's about it. It's a minor problem, however, and I am still extremely pleased with this Bible. So... buy it, read it, study it, and get to know the Author.

Very good Bible  Apr 21, 2002
I wish this site had more information about this Bible, since it is such a good one, and you can't really tell that from what's given.

First of all, this Bible has what's called "single column" text. This means that the lines go all the way accross the page, as in an ordinary book. The advantage to this is that it is very easy and conveneint to read, as opposed to the more choppy half column text. This was the main reason I got this Bible as opposed to many of the other ones, since it is soooo nice to have single column text.

Furthermore, unlike a few single column Bibles, this one is indented by paragraphs, as opposed to being indented verse-by-verse.

The text is a nice size, slightly larger than most Bibles (that I've seen, anyway), and is clear and easy to read.

Furthermore, the page is only the text and is not cluttered with cross references or notes (not that those are bad, it's just that I personally like it better without them :-). There are, however, footnotes indicating alternate readings, explanations of possibly confusing terms, etc.

The cover is very nice, as the previous reviewer mentioned, and feels good when you're holding it. The outside of the pages are a very bright, shiny gold, which is pleasing to the eye (it is to mine at least).

There is also a ribbon-marker, which is very convenient.

There are short book introductions and outlines as well.
At the back, there is a read through the Bible in a year plan, which has you read 5 chapters a day at the beginning, because your enthusiasm will be high, and gradually goes to 4 and then 3 chapters, since your ambition will begin to wane in the middle of the year. It then picks back up toward the end, since you will have that final "push" to get done. After this, there is a counselor's index, which lists various Scriptures that deal with various subject you might encounter when wanting to "counsel", or help, someone (or yourself!).

There is also a concordance.

There are no maps at the back. I don't mind this at all, since I never use them anway, but perhaps you do, in which case you can consult another Bible or "The Strongest Strong's Exhaustive Concordance", which has many EXCELLENT maps (they are really good - the best I've ever seen).

The words of the Lord of the Universe, and Savior of all who put their faith in Him to save them and be the Master of their life (see Romans 10:9-10), Jesus Christ, are in red print.

And finally, the updated NASB, as I'm sure you know, is one of the best translations available. It combines accuracy (especially with verb-tenses, which are VERY important in studying a passage) and ease of reading. In fact, it is one of the only translations to regularly say "so that" instead of just "that". Seriously, how many people say "I got a degree that I could be an engineer"? No one I know. They would say "I got a degree so that I could be an engineer". ... It just drives my crazy sometimes....

Well, with that tangent over and done with, I hope that I've given you enough information to make an informed purchase, or lack thereof, but remember, ultimately it is not which Bible you get or which translation, etc., it is WHAT YOU DO WITH IT that counts. "Be doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves." James 1:22.
