Reviews - What do customers think about NASB Life Application Study Bible
Black Genuine Leather / Indexed ?
Thoroughly enjoying!!!! Mar 8, 2007
I finished my last reading of the Bible using the Living version and enjoyed being able to understand most of what was being said. Now I wanted to study the Bible more closely, but still wanted the reading to be ease without loosing meaning. This Bible has delivered on that hope!
Great product, Great price! Jan 18, 2007
I bought this for my husband. We both like the accuracy of the NASB, but it is hard to find a "Life Application" in this version, in the Christain bookstores. Also, the version itself when leather bound is usually high. The list price is absolutely accurate at over $80. I was lucky to get this at a sale price. The leather was black and had gold edging. Very nice.
Very Sturdy Bible Jan 3, 2007
This bible is well built; the binding look very sturdy and should last a long time. I also appreciate the NASB version. The notes & guides are very helpful; they getting me thinking on another level; a real 'God Touch'.
A Lifetime Companion on the Road to Glory Jun 9, 2006
There are three big decisions involved in getting a Bible, not counting expense.
The first is the translation. If you want something to give you an easy, casual reading, and you don't care about accuracy, then the NASB is not for you. If you want something that is fairly accurate, but don't really care if it is precise or not, then the NASB may or may not be the best choice for you.
If, however, you believe that the Bible is the Word of God, and you want it translated into readable modern English as precisely as possible, because you want to apply the Word of God to your own life, then there is NO other translation that will do. From my perspective in comparing both the Hebrew and the Greek, there is no other translation that even comes close to the NASB for accuracy, with the possible exception of the NKJV, which to me ranks a fairly distant second.
The NASB is written in clear, readable 12th-grade-level English. That makes it a bit difficult to read for some. If you are willing to put forth the effort to let your life be stretched by the Word, however, is it not also worth the effort to let your English be stretched by the most accurate translation?
One of the commentators on here mentioned that he preferred the NRSV over the NASB for accuracy. I'm afraid that is simply not correct. The NRSV is loaded with inaccuracies in translation, which appear to me to have been deliberately inserted to skew the translation in favor of a particular theological viewpoint, making it one of the LEAST accurate translations available.
The second big decision is what kind of study helps to get. I find the Life Application editions well organized, easy to use, and Biblically sound, but to each their own. I suggest looking at some friends' copies to decide for yourself.
The third is what kind of cover. The top-grain leather is the only one that will last a lifetime. (I know, I've worn out two split-grain editions and a couple of vinyl editions.)
Don't think of it as a book. Think of it as a lifetime companion on the road to glory.
Best Quality for this Bible Jul 19, 2005
If you do your research, you will see that this is the best quality bible for a thumb indexed NASB Life Application Bible. If you want your bible to last as long as your notes in the bible, then this is the bible for you. Top grain cowhide rather than bonded leather is the way to go. Spend the money up front and get this bible. You won't be sorry.
