Foundation Publication Inc is the Publisher of numerous Bibles including the New American Standard Bible, La Biblia de las Américas, and Nueva Biblia Latinoamericana de Hoy Bible translations.
For over four decades, serious Bible students have preferred the New American Standard Bible for its literal translation of the original texts. The NASB is still considered the most literal word-for-word English translation available. Now, with the updated language and wide variety of editions, there is tremendous opportunity for new market growth.
Holding true to this translation’s high standard for accuracy, over 20 eminent scholars recently collaborated to produce an updated edition that enhances clarity and readability without reducing accuracy. Christian leaders, students and Bible readers wholeheartedly agree—the Updated NASB is a smoother, easier read, yet remains true to the original texts.
Visit the Lockman foundation for more information on the NASB, LBLA & NBLH translations.
Reviews - What do customers think about NASB Pew Bible in Large Print Hardcover - Black?
cheap and good Nov 16, 2008
Good translation, nice cheap, simple, decent sized bible to carry around. If you're looking for a study bible, go elsewhere, but if you just want something basic for really cheap, this is it.
My only complaint is there are no book-verse listing of the old testament citations in the new testament. Otherwise, grand.
Excellent Little Bible! Nov 13, 2008
NASB Large Print Pew Bible (Black, Hardcover Cloth) If you like the New American Standard Bible without all the bells and whistles that come with a larger study bible, you'll love this one!
Though not a study bible it does come with its own study aids that you won't find in the others. For example, it includes a list of the parables, allegories, similes and proverbs that have characteristics of parables. It includes a list of all the miracles of Jesus, the Old Testament prophecies fulfilled in Christ as well as a genealogy of Jesus. Some other helpful study aids are "Where to Find Help" for times when you're afraid, your faith is weak, feeling far from God, or ill or in pain, and many more.
Plus there is also a list of all the titles given to Jesus as well as their significance and where to find them, and also a list of the 12 apostles of Jesus. Finally, it includes 10 very well made black and white maps which I find are easier to read than those in color.
Though not a large bible, it has over 1,250 pages of good quality paper, printed with a dark ink that doesn't bleed through. Coupled with the fact that this is a larger print bible, it's very easy on the eyes; even for someone who's over sixty and wears bifocals!
The bible itself is of excellent quality, a cloth-bound hardback, which lays flat on the the desk regardless to where you turn to in the bible. If there were any downsides, there might be two of them if you're really picky: one is that it's double-columned and, two, the words of Christ are NOT in red. However, for me, those are a plus!
The Greatest New American Story Ever Told Oct 31, 2008
Most readers come to the Bible for the first time with high expectations. People naturally assume that any book written by God must be a good one. Maybe explain the meaning of life. The nature of good and evil. The mystery of death. The path to finding true love, or hope for the future, or elevated self-esteem, maybe even a successful weight-loss plan. Whatever. Then they start reading ... and they always quit about halfway through the second book, aptly named Exodus. If you have never read the third book, Leviticus, which you probably haven't, go ahead, give it a try, it's a cure for insomnia. No one but a rabbi, or a Levite, has ever made it through the book of Leviticus without major skimming.
The New Testament is a volume that everyone should read, once, but talk about a bad case of sequelitis! Ouch! The less said about the New Testament, the better. Half the books therein were dictated by the holy Ghost to the apostle Paul, a.k.a. Saint Knucklehead, who was the most boring windbag I have ever known, except maybe Fidel Castro. I would rather read a year's worth of C-Span transcripts than to slog once more through Saint Paul's thirteen tedious epistles. Paul was not without talent and drive. But if the holy Ghost ever exhibited any real promise as a writer of prose nonfiction, he was ruined by the apostle Paul.
Surprising fact: the Holy Bible, Old and New, remains the best-selling book of all time. In some places, especially in the United States, the Bible still outsells J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter books. In America, God has sold more copies of His two-volume book than McDonald's has sold of its Big 'N' Tasty double cheeseburger. According to statistics supplied by Wycliffe International, the Society of Gideons, and the International Bible Society, nearly a quarter million new Bibles are sold or given as gifts in the United States every day. Which goes far toward explaining what happened to the Earth's rain forest. But your typical Holy Bible is purchased for a carry-to-church item, or for coffee-table decor. No one ever actually reads it, not even in the United States of America.
Am I wrong? Okay, perhaps you have read it. If so, you're an exceptional human being. It's not impossible: your average reader can get through both Testaments, without skimming, in about seventy hours. But truthfully, almost no one ever has ever read the Word of God from cover to cover except elderly nuns, and the occasional Christian adolescent who reads it through for sheer penance, to punish himself for having downloaded erotic pictures from the Internet, and ... but never mind.
Try Again - PLEASE! Feb 12, 2008
A copy of the Dore Bible is a fantastic idea, but the only reason to own it over any other version is for the stunning Dore images. In this version, the images come across as muddy and useless.
My wish would be for a future reworking of this version, except for the Dore reproductions to be the same quality as the Kindle screen savers.
That would be worth owning!
Not Kindle-friendly Dec 8, 2007
This electronic version of the Bible is not engineered for the Kindle. When you search for a text string you find it, but nowhere can you tell where you landed in the Bible. You would have to page forward or backward to find what book you are in, which, as Kindle users know, could take a long time. Needs a book reference somewhere, in the search results summary page or on the text page when you get there.
