Good Bible, Notes and Content, but the Book Itself needs Work Nov 28, 2006
This is a good Bible for reading and study, Ryrie's notes are well researched, although they don't delve as deep into historical detail as say, John Macarthur's. Ryrie offers ideas on more applicability in many cases, which is nice, depending on the person. I personally prefer the more historical notes, but I didn't get Macarthur's NASB Study Bible because either his name or a huge cursive "M" is on every page. Boy, somebody has an ego...
Anyway, the problem with this Ryrie Study Bible is that the book itself is of poor quality. The leather is almost certainly an imitation, being hard and vinyl-like, and my copy was bound slightly crooked, so when closed there is a noticable difference in the position of the pages and the cover. It is also as if the pages are too many for this cover. Near the spine the book bulges, like the number of pages barely fit. This may be a problem with my copy only, but I can't say for sure. Just in case it is not just my copy, I am warning everyone.
Good Translation and Good Study Features Apr 23, 2005
This is a Reina-Valera Revision 1960 which uses the Received Text as its textual basis (like the 1909, and 1995 versions), and uses formal (or complete) equivalence in translation... Out of the Reina-Valera Bibles still being printed today this is the favorite version amongst evangelical Christians. This is because it is both faithful to the original tongues and it is still fairly easy to read... The 1909 version uses many archaisms and its grammar can be confusing at times. On the other hand, the 1995 version is easy to read and uses modern language, but in my opinion the translation takes many liberties at times, and therefore words are ADDED to "enhance understanding of the text." For example, the RVR1960 translates Romans 1:3, "acerca de su Hijo, nuestro Seýor Jesucristo, que era del linaje de David segýn la carne," while the RVR1995 translates, "evangelio que se refiere a su Hijo, nuestro Seýor Jesucristo, que era del linaje de David segýn la carne," You will not find the words "EVANGELIO QUE SE REFIERE" in the original Greek whether you are looking at an Alexandrian text-base translation (Critical Text) or a Byzantine/Majority text-base one (Received Text). So long as you use a formal equivalence translation (that rules out the NVI/NIV). As mentioned, the RVR1960 in my opinion, is the best Spanish translation of the Scriptures, but if you still find this translation hard to read, then I would advise you to get the RVR1995. I say this because the only other "easy to read" versions of the Reina-Valera Bible are; the Reina-Valera Actualizada (RVA) and the RVR1995. The RVA is a pseudo Reina-Valera, it is based on the Critical Text, whom neither Casiodoro de Reina used in the original translation in 1569 nor Cipriano Valera in his revision of 1602. They used mainly the Erasmus and Stephens editions of the Received Text.
Features of this particular Bible: More than 8,000 study notes; More than 75,500 marginal biblical references; Introduction and Outlines to each book of the Bible; Introduction to the Old and New Testaments; Introduction to the Gospels; A Harmony of the Gospels; Brief Summary of Biblical Doctrines; How Did we get the Bible, How to Use a Study Bible; How to Understand the Bible; How to Read the Bible in One Year; Inspiration of the Bible; Brief Concordance of the Bible; Chronologic Table; Color Maps; Weights, Measures, and Money Tables; Words of Christ in Red; And many articles on diverse subjects. [Bonded Leather, Black. 7"(W) x 9-3/4"(H), and 2,200 pages.]
Note: Charles Ryrie is a devout and respectable Bible scholar, but be weary of his inclinations when reading his study notes... He is definitely bias, and will very smoothly try to persuade you of two things (whether these are true or false is up for debate in evangelical circles): 1. "Salvation cannot be lost." 2. "Codex Sinaiticus and Vaticanus [Critical Text] are two of the most faithful manuscripts of the New Testament... The doubtful authenticity of vv. 9-20 makes it imprudent to construct a doctrine or base an experience on them, especially vv. 16-18." (Read his study note for Mark 16:9-20).
Study and pray! God Bless you!
A great Study Bible Aug 21, 2001
I have to admit that I am something of a study Bible collector, I'm afraid. However, with all of the Bibles I have, when it is time to teach, or put together a lesson, my NASB Ryrie is the one I reach for. First of all, I love the layout of the text. It is two-column, with the cross-references on the outside margins. When I look at other Bibles, the text layout does not seem as easy to read as the Ryrie.
Ryrie's book outline is presented in the introduction of each book of the Bible and then is found throughout the book as well. The notes, though not as extensive as some might like, are unobtrusive yet helpful.
The concordance at the back of this Bible seems to be a pretty good one and the articles on Bible doctrine are great.
I highly recommend both the NASB and the Ryrie for serious Bible students and teachers.
Excellent Aug 19, 2000
This is an excellent NASB Bible. There are many notes and references that help a lot when preparing for Bible lessons or studying. Again, this is an excellent Bible.
Ryrie Study Bible is Excellent Aug 18, 2000
I have used a Ryrie Study Bible for years, and the combination of the NAS translation with Charles Ryrie's notes is wonderful. The new expanded edition is filled with even more well done maps, information, and important asides to the Bible. This is a wonderful edition of the Holy Bible, and would make a wonderful addition to anyone's study.
