You can tell when someone has learned not to just read their Bible, but to use it. The margins are full of handwritten notes. Verses are underlined. Personal cross-references abound. Bible-users do more than study God’s Word—they interact with it. If that’s you, the Zondervan NASB Wide Margin Bible is what you’ve been looking for.

No more cramped quarters. You’ll find plenty of space to write down the things God shows you in the Scriptures. The Zondervan NASB Wide Margin Bible features: · Extra-wide margins for note-taking* · Larger print for easy reading · Single-column format to facilitate reading · New American Standard Bible, Updated (The most literal is now more readable.) · 16-page color map set · Index to color maps · NASB concordance

If you’re a Bible-user, you’ve found more than a tool. The Zondervan NASB Wide Margin Bible is a legacy of personal wisdom and insight that grows as you commit to writing what God shows you of his heart in the Scriptures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Notetaker's Bible Oct. 24 2003
Format:Hardcover
Make sure and buy an XL Bible cover for this wonderful edition of the NASB. While I still refer to my cross reference Bible, this edition by Zondervan allows me all the "elbow room" I could ever want, germinating notes fit for a good Bible study. A must for pastors who still like to preach and teach the word, and not predigested, prepackaged "sermons".

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll fill it up. Oct. 22 2002
Format:Hardcover
If you really enjoy studying the scriptures, making your own notes, cross-references and the like, you'll find this a powerful tool in your studies. The notes and references you make will actually be useful, unlike the many notes and references found in many bibles out there. Pastors, teachers, and students would do well to have one of these on their bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for taking notes! June 27 2003
Format:Hardcover
I highly recommend this Bible for those of you who like to take notes. The font looks nice and is easy to read. Each verse begins on its own line and their are no footnotes cluttering the pages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for group Bible study! Feb. 21 2008
By Louise Eberhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
At the age of 60, I think I must have every version of the Bible produced since the 1960's. The majority of them have been gathering dust for years. I have had only 2 Bibles since 1986 that have been heavily used. One is a very small print KJV and the other is a NIV that I used after the KJV started falling apart at the seams.

Many of the Bibles I own are "study Bibles". Although I enjoy "reading" them, I must admit that when I use a study Bible, I find myself relying on the notes more than I should. I don't really "study" when using a study Bible but tend to rely on the author's interpretation of Scripture.

I recently started to attend a church where they use the NASB almost exclusively. I had a NASB Study Bible that I began using but again, I found myself reading the notes more than the Word. Since I DO write in my Bible (I always have and I write a lot), I went looking for a wide margin Bible. Due to lack of free space in most Bibles, I end up either writing over the text or writing so small that I can't read what I wrote.

After a lot of research, I decided on Zondervan's NASB Wide Margin Bible. It is bonded leather which I have found will last for years of constant use before it falls apart. I can usually get 10 years out of a bonded leather Bible before I have to replace it. It's color is burgandy which is OK although I wish they made more black Bibles like they used to. The print is easy to read, even for my old eyes.

I like how each verse is separate, starting on it's own line. It makes finding a particular verse much easier than trying to pick it out of a block of text. There is OVER 1 1/2" of space on the outside margins in which to write notes and there are no distracting side notes or references except for a few on the bottom of the page. If you are looking for a cross reference Bible, this one is NOT for you. This may not be a good Bible for personal Bible Study but for group study, I think it is perfect. And, if you like myself have a Pastor who is an expository teacher, the lack of cross references is no big deal and you DO have a lot of room in which to write YOUR OWN references. I think you will learn much quicker having to write it down yourself. If you do use a study Bible, just remember that you are reading somebody else's interpretation of the Scriptures which might not necessarily be the correct one.

I really can't think of many negatives about this Bible. I DO wish the paper was a bit thicker as you can faintly see the print on the next page. But personally, that doesn't bother me at all. I don't use highliters in my Bible so I don't know if they will bleed through or not. I have tried "dry markers" but I don't think they are dark enough to be much good.

The Zondervan NASB Wide Margin Bible is reasonably priced and I am really enjoying using it.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK Sept. 12 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound|Verified Purchase
The Lockman Foundation (owners of the NASB translation) also have a wide margin edition, but I like the page layout of this one better because the Lockman Foundation's one has a lot of cross references in the margin that add visual noise to the page. But it is a matter of preference and certainly they are very, very nice in other respects.

The best place to find every NASB Bible in print, along with a good description, by visiting the web site of the Lockman Foundation. Do a google on "Lockman Foundation" and you will find it.

My leather bound edition looks well made.

HOWEVER, for those reviewers whose Bibles are not doing well, I would like to point out that Zondervan's web site says they have a lifetime guarantee on leather Bibles and a limited time guarantee on hardback Bibles. Do a google search on "zondervan bible guarantee" (without quotes) and you should find it.

The Font Point Size is 8.8, which is comfortable to read.

The reason for the four-star review is the page opacity. If you look closely at page (n), you can not only see the mirror image of the page (n+1) but also the page after that (n+2). I think this won't bother most people but is does bother me.

Hope this helps.
UPDATE: I like this edition much better:

Also, this is one of the few Bibles that have not printed Jesus' words in distracting red ink!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Bible - Hard to Reference Jan. 30 2008
By semifl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I requested and received this for my birthday. Outside of getting over the initial heebie-jeebies of making my first note in such a pristine space, I have found it to be a wonderful resource.

Good points:
The text is laid out very plainly, easy to read and without visual clutter. (References are great, but this is a journaling Bible - you write your own references.)

The paper is sturdy and accepts ink well. (I am not much of a highlight-er so no reviews, there.)

As a person who does not journal much or write in my bible much, it has introduced a meaningful and personal application to my bible study time.

Points to Consider (or improve, if you have such influence):
The book and chapter references are aligned with the body of the text. It sounds minute, but it is difficult to flip through quickly and find a chapter and book with all of the white space to the side of the references. These should be as far to the outer edge of the page as possible to allow the reader to flip through and find their reference.

Another crazy request: for those of us with perfectionistic tendencies, a blank page in the back where we can test our pen inks would be helpful - you never know how the paper will accept the pen ink or what the ink will do to the other side of the page.

Overall, if you are not journaling in your bible, it is a great exercise and this one is a good one to start with.
