2.0 out of 5 stars Not the cornerstone of Biblical excellence 29 Oct 2009
Format:Leather Bound
The goods points. The verses are clearly set out as verses, not paragraphs, so you don't have to hunt for a verse lost in a paragraph. Paragraphs are nevertheless indicated by bold type. It is almost a word for word translation, though it does paraphrase occasionally. The Old Testament is a good translation of the Masoretic Hebrew Script. I can read this and feel comforted by the words of the 23rd psalm, as these are familiar words.

Bad points. Whilst the New testament leaves out less than other Alexandrian Versions, it is still, nevertheless, riddled with grave errors, because the translators have used the corrupt Greek text of Nestle Aland's 26th edition. Why O why do they do this and spoil an otherwise good bible? You should read what a former member of the Lockman Foundation has written about New versions of Bibles.

You would be better off buying a New King James Bible. Now that is the cornerstone of Biblical excellence.

5.0 out of 5 stars New American Standard Bible 4 Feb 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
Perfect size, nice and simple, great translation, nice concordance in the back. Accessible, convenient, overall just what I was looking for. Color is not obnoxious like I thought it might be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Readable Word for Word Translation 20 Mar 2003
By Chuck R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
I actually prefer the King James because it is more referred to (more quoted and used in studies), but the New American Standard Bible is also a word for word translation, completed in 1971 by a team of over 50 evangelical scholars with doctorates in Bible languages. I sought out this version as a supplement. Sometimes I find it refreshing to read other translations of the Bible to keep my interest fresh. Other good translations also make excellent cross references.
For many perhaps the King James Version is rather hard to understand. Translated in 1611, many of its words are not used in today's modern English or have changed meaning. I feel more modern translations (New American Standard Bible, New King James, New International Version...) to be great versions especially for new readers. It is also good to research your choice of translation on how true it is to the original text (word for word?, sentence for sentence? paragraph for paragraph?) and how many were involved in the translation as to keep true to the meaning of the scripture vs. one persons point of view.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a superior translation of the Bible. 8 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
The NAS is the most accurate translation of the Bible available today. It combines the most reliable ancient transcripts with the historical integrity of the Hebrew and Greek languages while maintaining the beauty of the Psalms and Songs within.

4.0 out of 5 stars A plain and simple NASB... 13 Jan 2000
By David Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
This Bible is the new updated NASB translation. The translation is accurate, but this particular Bible has only the basics. The print is fairly cramped, and as far as extra perks go, there are a few B&W maps and a small concordance. A good economy Bible to own, but no special frills.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Translation! 23 April 2008
By Bradley Headstone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Leather Bound
If you follow my reviews, you know that I am Anglo Catholic and that the 2 versions I use most are the "Good News" and the ORIGINAL "Revised Standard." I have respect for the "King James," the "New King James," the "Jerusalem," the "English Standard Version," and the "Holman Christian Standard." I do NOT like the NIV or the NRSV. Onto the subject at hand. The NASB is widely praised as the most literally accurate version. It does not contain the Apocrypha. But being that this is a Protestant Bible, we can't really hold that against it. The NASB is widely accepted in Protestant churches. For the most part, it is carefully literal. I consider it an interesting cross between the "Revised Standard" and the "New King James." My one slight complaint is that it is not quite as beautifully written as the "Revised Standard." But that said, the "New American Standard" is excellent.
