Reviews - What do customers think about New American Standard Bible (NASB) Update Side-Column Reference; Blue?

Great Edition of a Great Translation!  Sep 14, 2007
I have the Blue Hardcover, it is a solid well made Bible. I really like the single column. I like also the fact it is sewn at the binding. Should give much service. The font is (11 point?) I like that it reads as smoothly a a novel! This Bible was well done and at a good price! Do not hesitate to get a copy!
Pleased  Jun 8, 2007
For quite some time, I have been looking for a side-column reference NASB Bible to replace my RSV Bible. Generally, I am pleased with my purchase; however, if I were to design the layout I would slightly reduce the size of print, provide wider margins for making personal notes, and reduce the page size to 5-1/2"x8-1/2". The overall format and presentation of information is quite acceptable. Of course, if Foundations Publications or any other publisher would incorporate my preferences, I would probably be interested.
Great quality Bible; reliable translation  Mar 28, 2007
The production of this Bible is very good: smyth sewn, durable materials. The paper could have been slightly higher quality to avoid all shadowing, but that would make the Bible a little thicker and more expensive. I wouldn't mind that, but some people would. The print size and letter style is ideal.

One quibble: I would have preferred that the footnotes be on the spine edge so that the actual print wasn't too close to the crease. Or move the print about a quarter of an inch more away from the spine so all the printed area lays on a flat plane.

OK, one more quibble: A paragraph format would be superior to the verse format. Or, better yet, provide both formats and you'll see which is more popular. The old verse format is alien to modern English printing and reading, and is just another unneeded KJV holdover. Actually, I believe that the NASB marriage to verse format has killed its popularity since its inception. You'll notice that popular modern Bibles all have paragraph format. Note to publishers: It's 2007!

The text is very conservative which has its pros and cons. I wonder how the translators justify translating the Hebrew word 'alma' as 'virgin' in Isaiah 7:14, but as 'maiden' elsewhere. The rendering in Habukkuk 2:4 of 'faith' would better be 'faithfulness,' as a variety of commentators note. I think that the practice of translating the OT based on information from the NT is disingenuous; let the OT renderings stand on their own. If a conflict exists, then so be it.

Having said all that, the NASB is overall very reliable for accuracy, word order (such as any translation from another language can be), and uniformity. No liberal "corrections," The footnotes in this edition are awesome, giving some more literal renderings and other helpful information. Also, the NASB isn't littered with run-on sentences like you find in the ESV. The translators used proper sentence structure. Everyone should have a copy of the NASB, and this one is the most readable and useful (because of all the footnotes). 4 stars.

Accurate translation  Nov 5, 2005
For those readers who do not have knowlege of either Hebrew or Greek, this is generally considered the most accurate of translations available. But be prepared for uncommon style. The NASB is more readable than the KJV, but similar to the NKJV, although it draws on more eclectic manuscript evidence. The Lockman Foundation is the proprietor of this translation and has retained the faithfulness of the 1977 version, while updating the archaic remnants of the NAS (1901). The Smyth-sewn binding is a rare commodity in bookbinding these days, providing a long-lasting, quality book. Black letter version is increasingly harder to find, and this is a plus as well.
A very fine Bible at a very reasonable price .......  Aug 10, 2005
I am very pleased with this Bible. (I have the blue hardcover editon.) Having the references in the side column is a wonderful idea! It makes reading a pleasure. Add to that the single column format, and we definitely have a winner! My only regret is that I didn't save up for the leather bound editon. :) BTW, the NASB is an incredible translation. If you're accustomed to the NIV, give it a try. You won't be sorry. J. Swartz
