Great Pocket Bible Apr 5, 2008
If you like the New American Standard Edition, this is a great pocket edition. I carry it with me to school, so I can read it after class.
Finally Oct 31, 2006
Finally found a pocket-sized New Testament that is readable. Text could be a tad larger, but this NAS New Testament is fine. I'd also prefer one column instead of two, but again, compared to all the other small New Testaments I've tried, this one is, alas, possible to actually read.
Excellent little Bible! Apr 27, 2002
First of all, this is the new updated version of the New American Standard Bible. If you've seen comparisons of the various Bible versions, the NASB generally is described as the most literal version (word-for-word accuracy) of the Bible that sometimes suffers in readability for that very reason. I believe the reputation has been largely undeserved. There were occasional awkward constructions but, all in all, it was quite readable. With this version they have gone back over sentence structure, vocabulary, etc. with a view toward improving the readability and flow of the language. They have also removed archaic words like Thee and Thou. I think they have succeeded in producing a readable translation without compromising the accuracy. We now have a literal, word-for-word translation that reads with the best of the modern versions.
With this pocket NT with Psalms and Proverbs, I think they have done an excellent job balancing overall size of the Bible and font size/layout. It is small enough to comfortably fit in your pocket, but it is also quite comfortable to read. The quality is outstanding as are all the other Foundation Publications products I have seen. They really do a great job publishing Bibles.
Nice little package Feb 12, 2002
I reference six different English translations and the Greek during my Bible study. The NASB and ESV (English Standard Version) are consistently, I feel, the most accurate translations. They maintain a literal translation while being easy to read. FOr a personal study Bible, I would recommend the ESV. But the NASB would be my second choice.
But that isn't even what this review is about. It is supposed to be about this little pocket version in particular. I like it. I did give it four stars because the cover is not very protective of the pages. I have a little New King James Version that I was given by the Gideon's and it's cover is much more protective. But still I take this little guy to school every day with me and it holds up. There are so many different Bible styles out there. Don't buy this one for study or anything, but if you want a Bible to carry in your pocket to work or school, this is a good one.
Best English Translation in a wonderful package Sep 8, 2000
Many of today's translations fail to place accuracy as a high priority. Thankfully, the NASB puts a premium on literal translation, and now with their update, make it easier to read (no "Thee" or "Thou" simply because it is addressing God). And for when compactness is essential, this small NT plus Psalms and Proverbs proves very handy. Highly recommended.
