This kindle version is very good with easy searching. I would recommend the NASB for a first time reader of the bible, and for those who find the King James Version difficult to read. Better than the NIV which I also have.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, poor execution 2 Jan. 2016
By Dean Davs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Loving the NAS as I do, I had high hopes for this Kindle Bible. It had potential, and with a little effort could be rendered quite useful and readable. There are two main defects.

First, in the original version, when the author was quoting someone, each verse would begin with quotation marks. In this version, the editors have used a paragraph format. The result is that you get quote marks appearing over and again where they do not belong in a paragraph. Hopefully, this kind of thing appears in the sample, so readers can evaluate it before they purchase. See John 17.

Secondly, in modernizing the text (a great idea), the editors have simply used a computer to replace phrases like "Thou didst" with "You did." The result is a phrase like this: ". . . that the world may know that You did send me." It should read, ". . . that the world may know You sent me." But someone got lazy, and left lots of this kind of thing in the book.

I hope the editors will hire a proof-reader and go through the entire Bible, correcting for punctuation and English readability. The idea behind this version is great; the execution careless and poor.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite version. 24 Aug. 2015
By Mark A. Ellis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Old dogs like their bones. I'm a missionary with the SBC, and have the privilege of speaking a lot both here and abroad. I use this to preach with English-speaking audiences, and I often have people come up to me afterwards wondering what version I used in the pulpit. They like it. I prefer it to the 1995 edition, which began leaving out words (like conjunctions at the beginning of sentences) for stylistic reasons. Because of my personal belief in plenary verbal inspiration, and that those conjunctions were just as inspired as the rest of the text, and that they have their purpose in communicating continuity in the narrative, I appreciate the faithfulness of the NASB 77. The updating of archaic pronouns and verb conjugations is an improvement over the original NASB 77.

5.0 out of 5 stars no question, the best translation out there. 28 Mar. 2015
By Laura J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
No question, the best translation out there. I've read many different translations and, while I am neither Biblical nor Greek/Hebrew scholar to be sure, I've heard multiple highly intelligent and well rounded pastors and scholars who all consider this translation to be, if not THE best, certainly one of the top 2 or 3. While certain nuances of Biblical text can be ferreted out with other translations and paraphrases, this NASB has always been regarded as the best word-for-word translation out there. For those who want a true "study" bible, this is the translation. The Holmes, ASV, NIV, and a couple others are not at all bad from a "thought-for-thought" perspective, but this one, the NASB (perhaps also the Amplfied version), should be considered as a go-to for thorough understanding of what the original text stated when the reader is like me, a general bible student, seeking God in His Word, without direct knowledge of Greek or Hebrew. Of course, when a broader understanding is needed, seek out several translations to help in understanding the full scope of God's voice spoken to His creation, but when a word-for-word study is needed, and when the student is wondering whether a particular paraphrase or lesson is correct, this translation is essential food for the soul.
5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this Book-- I love THIS edition. 1 April 2014
By LadyThornbird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have several lovely Bibles but I wanted THIS EDITION on my iPad. I went to Amazon and five minutes later-- I was reading it on my iPad. WiFi is everywhere--so you can slip it into your purse and enjoy it at church. Its easier than carrying a large Bible. I especially love Psalms 26. At my husband's recent passing-- that was the last passage I read to him-- his affirmation of who he was and where he was going. He was 92-- a successful gentle giant in the field of agriculture. He had spent his entire lifetime as a grower-- and he just let the fast paced tech world pass him by except he stayed abreast with advancements as related to his office and farming equipment. Then one day we were talking about a book- I walked over to the computer and pulled up Amazon and ordered the book. Picked up my Kindle and almost immediately-- I showed him what we had been talking about. He was mesmerized! He would read-- smile and hand the Kindle to me to 'turn the page.' That was more awesome to him than a $225,000. piece of farm equipment that could till a dozen rows of produce at a time. He couldn't believe it! If you don't have a KINDLE or iPAD-- don't put off buying one! Amazon can get it to you almost over-night. AND-- your books immediately!!!
5.0 out of 5 stars The Modernized 1977 Edition of the NASB 19 Jun. 2014
By Seeking Disciple - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a very good modification of the 1977 edition of the New American Standard Bible (NASB). The NASB has long been a solid Bible translation and many scholars (including this disciple) believe the NASB to be the most literal Bible version in English. While I read mainly now from the ESV, the NASB has been a version I have loved for many years and used while in college.

This Kindle edition features the 1977 NASB (the other update was 1995) but is modernized taking out the archaic language (Thee, Thou, etc. that the 1977 said was "prayer language"). I have greatly enjoyed this edition of the NASB on my Kindle and have used it much. It is easy to use, easy to read, trustworthy as a translation, and easy to navigate.
