Over 30 years of ministry i continue to use and recomend this study Bible version. Charles Ryrie who passed away in early 2016 has authored many very helpful books on doctrine, theology, commentary on The Bible, and also had a well respected teaching ministry at Philadelphia College of Bible, (now Cairn University), and Dallas Theological Seminary. For me his seminal work is the Ryrie Study Bible. One of my Bible school prof.'s and early ministry mentors turned me towards using this for study and teaching purposes. The NASB is the most literal translation to the original languages. This version combined with Dr. Ryrie's extensive scholarship in the attached, (not inspired), notes makes this Bible highly recommended from me to others. I wish it would be republished in the NKJV, as it once was. It is also available in the KJV and ESV. This study Bible will be more than helpful to your daily reading and studies.
I love the Ryrie NAS study Bible, however the print that CBD showed online when I looked at this particular Bible was not the print that was actually used in the Bible. The print type used was smaller and I could not read it.
This was an expensive purchase for me. The Bible was beautiful and has all the features I wanted. However, when it arrived my embossed name was spelled wrong. Normally I would have just lived with it, but this will probably be the last Bible purchase I will make for myself and I plan to leave it to my children. I called and explained the problem. There was not a moment of questioning. The young lady appologized and said a replacement would be ordered immediately. The corrected Bible arrived within a few days and I was able to return the first Bible without charge. A great experience!
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.
