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.

As Good as it gets (Maybe even better). Sep 28, 2008
Oh my, this Bible is amazing. I have to admit that when I opened the box, I was a bit put off by the cheezy "velvet" case. Nonetheless, I was still excited to see if this Bible was as great as people say it is. I didn't even get the Bible all the way out of the cover before my face cracked a huge smile. The leather of this Bible is absolutely amazing (I almost feel bad holding it). I then opened the Bible and was very impressed by the quality of the paper. They say it is bleed proof, but time will tell. I then looked at the ribbon markers, and was very impressed with them as well (there are two). The print is just the right size, and the margins are perfect for me (some people complain that they are not big enough, but I like them).
The one complaint that people have had is the wrinkling of the paper near the margins, and yes, it is the case with mine as well. But I don't care, which is a big deal seeing that I am a perfectionist, especially when it comes to Bibles.
I have a Cambridge Concord KJV, a Cambridge NASB (Goatskin), and have had the Cambridge Wide Margin NASB, and I can say with confidence that this is the most beautiful Bible that I have ever seen. If you are considering purchasing this product, know that it is worth every penny.
Recommend with slight hesitation Jun 1, 2008
This is certainly a beautiful Bible. The calf skin feels just like a Bible should feel (it is no Highland Goatskin Allan, but nice nonetheless). I have no qualms about the margins, although it is not as wide as a Cambridge Wide Margin. It has adequate space for sermon outlines and notes. The biggest issue I have with this Bible, and the reason I can't give it 5 Stars, is because of a common complaint. The pages wrinkle far to much for a Bible at this price point. It's especially bad along the center of the page. It makes the Bible look already pre-beaten up before you've done anything to it. If you can overlook these things then you will be more than pleasantly surprised by this Bible. Especially the cover.
Excellent, not perfect... May 5, 2008
I purchased the black leather edition and I am very pleased with the Bible. The leather is very soft and I love the smell and feel of this very well made Bible. It compares very well with my Cambridge NASB Wide Margin Bible in feel and quality. I love the size and clarity of the print and the quality of the paper. I was expecting the paper to be stiffer, but if this paper is truly "bleed through" proof then I will be happy with the paper also. There is only one minor issue that I have with the paper; there is some crinkling of the paper at the bottom of many of the pages (closer to the binding) that is sligthly annoying to a perfectionist like myself. That aside, this is a wonderful representation of the NASB and ultimately of God's Word. I enjoy the NASB translation (even though I like the ESV translation better) for its clarity and ease of understanding. You won't be disappointed with this Bible unless you are the supreme perfectionist and cannot overlook the crinkled paper issue. Otherwise, buy it, read it, devour God's Word and "praise God, from whom all blessings flow". Amen
Pleasing, high quality NASB bible. Dec 1, 2007
This is a review of the NASB In Touch Wide Margin bible in Burgundy Calfskin, ISBN 1581350708.
PROS The calfskin is absolutely gorgeous. I've handled the black and the blue calfskin editions of this bible but they do not compare to the feel and grain of the burgundy edition. Compared to the Crossway, Nelson, and Cambridge leather I also prefer this one in particular and it is worth owning nearly for this reason alone. The ribbon markers are of exceptional quality, wide, and long enough to use easily. The paper quality is very nice, and the binding is sewn so that the bible lays absolutely flat from the first use. Everything about the materials here is very high quality and among the finest that you can find. The translation is the Updated (1995) NASB which is very literal and excellent for study. Additionally, this is not a red letter edition which is a huge plus in my book. The concordance and maps are nice enough, and the layout of the pages is very pleasing and facilitates easy reading of the text. As others have mentioned, the only appearance in this bible of In Touch Ministries or Charles Stanley is in an elegant single-page dedication at the beginning of the bible.
CONS Some of the pages are slightly wrinkled near the inside seam. For an expensive bible this is something that shouldn't be there, however it doesn't affect the ability to read the text or write down notes in the margins. Speaking of margins... The outside, upper, and lower margins are very generous and easy to mark in. However, the inside margin is not very wide and I find that I can only easily write in cross references and one or two words. I've started using the lower margin for notes on the inside column, and the outside margin for the outside column because of this. Also, there are no cross references in this bible. I would prefer to have them for convenience however I am hopeful that I will gain more by researching and writing them down for myself.
Summary This is hands down the nicest bible I own and it is very pleasing to handle and use. I love the quality construction and hope that it will last for decades so that I can have a lasting bible to write down my notes as I study the word of God. If you are looking for a wide margin bible for note taking or a well crafted calfskin bible you can't go wrong with this bible.
