I purchased and received the new Ryrie NASB Study Bible (CBD Stock No.: WW484591). I write "new" because it is. It is now in paragraph format which makes it thinner. It looks like a good quarter inch thinner than my former verse by verse format NASB Ryrie. Which makes it more portable and church use friendly. All the same helps are there. But what surprised me is the quality. I always read the reviews before I purchase my Bibles from CBD, which has sometimes in the past prompted me to ask them to check them out before they ship them out to me. And some of the reviews for this particular Ryrie NASB were not too favorable. Mostly due to the binding method, and paper used. But the Bible I received is in excellent condition. And it lays flat right out of the box when opened. So perhaps Moody Publishers corrected the defects. I am truly surprisingly pleased.
Bought this Bible a while ago to get a different study Bible. I enjoy the notes and the maps however the binding is not great. I have accidentally ripped pages out just by turning the page a little fast. The Table of Contents and part of Genesis came out, but I was able to tape it back to the Bible. I am not sure if I just got a defective from the printer or if its a common issue with this Bible. To be honest I am a little hard on my Bibles, but my other Bibles have stood the test. I would recommend another Bible based on the one I have. The content is Great! But if you want a Bible that will last, I would find another one. God Bless!!
The Bible is excellent. The commentary is very helpful so that I do not always need to use another commentary in addition to having helpful guidance at my finger tips. The leather is especially nice as it lays totally flat when I am studying the Word.
I found this version a bit difficult to read. I would have returned it but the shipping back made that prohibitive with what I already spent on the bible. I did like the features I asked for though: red letter, thumb index, guilt edge. I just don't like this version of English.
