5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent study Bible! April 5 2003
Format:Leather Bound
This Bible is very well thought out. It is very user friendly, and if you are a novice Christian, or a veteran, you will enjoy reading this Bible. I can't say enough about NASB. It is so much more readable then the King James Version. My favorite attributes of this Bible are the historical references. They give you information on the author, and when the chapters were believed to be written. Whether you want to learn, or teach, I believe that you will find this wonderful Bible a blessing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best study Bible on the Market March 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Leather Bound
If you are a serious student of God's Word, and are looking for a Study Bible...THIS is the one to buy! I have used the NIV study Bible for years, but the thing that has always bothered me about the NIV is the translation itself. It has been my constant experience that when you read a dynamic-equivalent translation, one thought lingers in the back of the mind--"Is this what the Word of God REALLY says?" The New American Standard erases that lingering question. One can read this the NAS with confidence knowing that this translation is as accurate and literal to the original that one can find today! Thus, the superiority of the NAS--as a translation--is the basic reason for buying this study Bible.
The introduction and the notes are not as extensive as the NIV study Bible, but they are nevertheless outstanding and contain a wealth of information.
The cross-references are NOT as extensive as the NIV study Bible--and that is to be regreted; but the NASB marginal notes make up the difference. There is a wealth of enlightening information in the NASB marginal notes--in fact, this is one of the strongest features of this Bible.
The only negatives?
1. The paper is too thin. Any personal notes written in ink will bleed through terribly. High-lighter bleed-through is pretty bad also.
2. There is virtually no room for one to write his/her own notes. I hope they come out with a wide-margin edition of this study Bible.
3. The appearance of the text could have been better. The print is a bit light for these eyes--not bad, mind you--but I would like a font that is a bit larger in size and darker in appearance. The red print is also a bit of a strain on the eyes. To fix these problems, Zondervan will need to print this Bible using a thicker and better paper.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Literal Translation With Good Study Notes Feb. 21 2002
Format:Leather Bound
It's tough to find a good Bible that uses the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic (and copies in other languages) to produce a good translation. It's even harder to find one of these with good study notes to help understand it better. Thank God for this Bible. It was about time that I start looking for a much better translation, I needed one much more literal than the KJV and newer, too. This Bible doesn't even fall into the dynamic equivalent category the slightest bit, it is literal all the way and in my opinion, much better for a Bible student than the NIV or NRSV. When I came across this Bible, I was amazed and astonished. I read a few study helps and decided right away to cancel my order for the Scofield Bible and get an NASB. This is the best study Bible I have seen so far, I am majorly impressed with fantastic introductions, footnotes and indexes, it almost has a commentary built right in. Like the Geneva Bible of the 20th Century, this book teaches GOOD THEOLOGY. Diagrams are accurate and reliable and basically, the NASB is the most literal translation you're gonna get if you don't know Greek and until I am fluent in Greek (and know Hebrew), this Bible will serve me well!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as in-depth as it's NIV cousin Aug. 20 2001
By A Customer
Format:Leather Bound
I was disappointed with Zondervan's NASB Study Bible. I believe the marketing of this product is less than accurate. For years I had enjoyed your NIV Study Bible, especially its excellent concordance and the wealth of center column cross-references it contained. About a year ago I was drawn to the NASB translation and started using another study bible. But its concordance and cross references left much to be desired. So when I heard Zondervan had issued an NASB Study Bible and that it had all of the great features of its NIV Study Bible I was thrilled and I immediately bought it. It was only with use that I realized that the NASB Study Bible lacks the rich concoredance of the NIV version- it has a skimpy, much abridged concordance. Similarly the cross references in the center column area are a poor cousin to the NIV cross references (e.g., compare the cross references for Genesis 50:20 in the NIV with the NASB). Quite frankly I was disapointed. Zondervan should make clear in its sales literature that the NASB Study Bible is not the NIV Study Bible with simply a different translation for the text.

Although not the subject of this review, I will say up front: I love the John MacArthur Study Bible. If the editors had just included a concordance....(hint)! So now that you know that....
It goes without saying that the NASB text is peerless in it's accuracy. Period. Too, I have always admired the wealth of notes extant in the NIV Study Bible. Not to beat a dead horse, but the problem there was the NIV; the Study Bible part was great! Now the best of both are merged into the Zondervan NASB Study Bible, and it's wonderful!
While not perfect (as other reviewers have pointed out), it's the best conservative evangelical study bible to date. (Subject to change when the new MacArthur Study Bible debuts!).
While the depth of the commentary is obviously limited in such a work, the breadth is exhaustive. The strength of the notes are in their helfulness everywhere--not just in long-winded commentary on controversial passages.
The index, concordance, maps, etc., are sufficient for most everyone, and, as a whole, far better than most. I never thought I'd say it: we've come a long way from Dr. Scofield!
In summary, you'll be hard-pressed to top this work. Despite its (few) minor annoyances which other reviewers have greatly exagerated, the Zondervan Study Bible is the best of its genre in print today. Are you listening Dr. MacArthur?!

The NASB is a more literal translation than the NIV, but my rating is not related to that. Most of the NASB study notes were taken from the NIV Study Bible. Read more
