My other one complaint is that sometimes the red letters of Christ are dark, other times they fade. My eyes require a darker print so it can be a strain.
My one heartfelt request of Zondervan is for them to publish the NASB/Life Application Bible in a high grade leather, (i.e., Moroccan or calfskin) with the red letters of Christ. It is impossible to find.
God bless your studies!
The New American Standard Bible (NASB) is first and foremost, and accurate translation of the Bible. It attempts to faithfully translate what the words in the original hebrew, aramaic and greek actually say, and then leave the interpretation up to you, which is how it should be. Some of the features include using italicised words to indicate where english words must be added to make sense of the translation, possible alternative meanings of words where even if you were reading the original texts you would have to decide for yourself, and, more recently in this updated version, it uses the first person when addressing God, as the original languages did (no more thee's and thy's! They didn't exist in Greek, why should they clutter up an english Bible?).
The result of all this accuracy is that this translation doesn't flow quite as easily as some other translations! But then some of the other translations only flow and read as easily as they do because they take liberties with the words and phrases, and sometimes resort to interpretation. But that's not the translator's job, it's yours and mine as we read! This is important stuff, so you want to be sure its right! In my view, this is the best translation for anyone really interested in what the Bible has to say, since you can be confident that what you read is as close as you can get to the original texts without learning Hebrew or Greek! This updated version uses the very latest texts, has great cross references, and will last for years. If you're going to buy a Bible, I think this is the one for you.
But what does it say? First, I should say that I really do believe that this is the word of God.Read more ›

Overall - I strongly recommend the NASB Update Edition bible over the KJV, NIV, or any other I've read. I've used the NASB translation since the original Creation House volume. Read morePublished on May 26 2002
