Years ago I was discipled and schooled using the NASB. I have a variety of newer versions but wanted to get back to a foundational study Bible - the NASB. And, I wanted the updated version with large print (easier for me to read being older) and thin line (I travel often) - a seemingly tall order. I searched for years but couldn't find what I wanted - until now. I bought this new NASB, thin line, large print, black leather cover with my name embossed on the front and I really like it.
The print size is good, the bible is thin and light, but the print is light and not dark enough. Publishers should understand that those who need large print combined with thin, light weight also need a dark print to be able to easily read the bible. Please use a darker ink so we can read easily.
Nice Compact Bible at Reasonable Price. Type is a good readable size. Very Thin. I wish they had a calfskin leather option. No complaints. The NASB is one of the better modern english translations but none are as literal as the Young's Literal or the Concordant Literal translations. Neither of these are commonly available. The Concordant is the most literal. Neither the Young's or the Concordant are in modern english and both take some getting used to but you will get the real Word by reading them. I wish Christiabook.com would consider carrying them.
