I find the NASB to be the most critical in my study of the Word. I agree with the aforementioned comments about the size of this Bible. It's very nice and easy to handle. I also agree with the comments about the genuine leather binding, it is not very good. I would love to be able to find this Bible in a high grade Moroccan leather. I've only found one in calfskin but with black pring only.
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!

Honestly, there are several good translations. I own several. My choice is the 1977, NASB copyrighted version. It has great Greek translations, and still keeps the proper uses of you, thou, and thee, etc... Though this translation is no longer published, it still can be found today. There is nothing wrong with the updated 1995 version. And I must also state (in my opinion), there is nothing wrong with the KJV, NKJV, and the ESV Bibles, they're all great translations. I pray that some day they'd all come together in one combined translation, keeping the proper English usage of the word you, and refining their Greek to English translation. I strongly recommend NOT using the NIV nor some other versions, for they water down "The Word of God".

This translation which remains to be the most accurate and literal in the english language is perfect for those who want a faithful and unbiased version of the scripture. Using for the old testament kittels Biblia Hebraica and the Nestle Aland 26th edition for the new testament you get well worth your money. This bible also has wonderful cross references for study. I would recommend purchasing the Foundation publications editon of this bible since it has the most beautiful genuine leather i have ever seen for a bible along with ALOT of space for your personal notes, either way it is winner. Highly recommended!

Its hard to write a review of the Bible, but here goes. First I'll do this translation, then the Bible itself.
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.

Since the beginning man has been trying to answer the question of his existance and purpose in this universe. God's Writtn Revelation (the Bible) answers these questions. Who else would know but the One Who created the heavens and the earth? This book claims to be the the Truth and it does not take much faith to believe it. How else would the Earth have gotten hear? If you have a lot of faith, you may believe the fantastic ideas so-called science has concocted about accidental phenominons such as the big bang and evolution. I must say, to believe such astronomical impossibilities you must have the greatest faith of all. True science confirms, not denies, the facts in the bible. Evolution is a theory that can be easily disproven. Creation however cannot be disproven with true facts. This book also answers the question why we are here, who we are, and what the problem with the world is. It also contains the greatest story ever told in Jesus Christ. God becoming man. Why? To redeem fallen man. Man was given a choice. To do good or to do bad. We chose bad. He loved us so much He came up with a way to save us. Because God is so holy, and just, He could not let sin go unpunished. So the punishment had to be put on someone sinnless and pure. Since there is no man sinnless, God chose to become a man and take our punishment on Himself. So this Lamb was slain for us. And if we accept this slain Lamb we bear His righteousness upon ourselves. So the choice is we accept His Son to take on our own punishment or we deny Him and take on our own in an everlasting hell. Wow! Some may ask why does a loving God send us to hell. But God makes ever effort to save us. He doesn't send us to hell, it is our decisions that sends us there.Read more ›
