RCB3 Stars Out Of 5Disappointed. Poor read qualityAugust 1, 2014RCBQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I hate to rate this one down but after reading reviews here and elsewhere I was disappointed with the actual product. It feels fine, and is a great size, but reading it is too much work. Whatever others say, this print on the paper its on, is like Gray on Gray, with enough bleed through to be a 3rd dose of Gray. The font is NOT black, and the paper is NOT white. That combined with a font that in comparison to my other bibles appears at best a size 7 font, with the bare minimum line spacing, its just too much work. Will sell or return this one.

I would have preferred an all black letter edition but no one at Foundation publications queried me before it was published. I hope to get a few more before it goes out of print.

Daniel R BLos Alamos, NMAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Nice Single-Column NASBMarch 15, 2013Daniel R BLos Alamos, NMAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5For those who love the NASB, paragraph formatting and single-column format, there has been precious little choice. Most of us who like this format like it because it reads like any other book. Yes, I can make finding a verse quickly a little more difficult; however, it reads much more naturally than the "traditional" two-column verse format.
If you have the spare cash to invest in an Oxford Clarion NASB, you can get a great Bible in this format...though if you're like most of us, you'd be deathly afraid of marking in the Bible or taking it out into the weather.
Alternately, you could find an old World Classic Companion Edition NASB--which is a nice Bible, but out of print.
But now, Foundation Publications has addressed until now empty niche in their lineup of NASB Bibles: the NASB Large Print Compact Bible. Here it is, reasonably compact, single column, paragraph format...and for a reasonable price.
I have the Burgundy Leathertex Edition (at the date of my review, only Leathertex, Black or burgundy, are available.) I like Leathertex, and for an inexpensive Bible it works out well. Personally, I would have preferred the Leathertex two-tone (Brown/Light Brown) like in Foundation's Ultrathin Reference Bible. I don't feel too thrilled with the "fancy cross" design on the cover, but I don't consider this a major drawback. I could see this Bible meriting a genuine leather or even calfskin leather cover.
Some other Foundation Bibles that I have use an old-fashioned font that is not too aesthetically appealing (like the above mentioned Ultrathin Reference Bible). This Bible, however, has a nice, crisp modern 9 point font that is clear and easy to read.
Another factor that sometimes Foundation's Bible's have been plagued with is ghosting (where the paper is not opaque enough and the printing from the other side of the paper can be seen through); in this Bible, however, I would consider the ghosting minimal. It's still there, but it's less than I've seen in other low-priced Bibles.
This Bible is only in red letter edition. Personally, I like it, but I could see Foundation appealing to more if it was available in black letter and red letter. Sadly, the red letter is not as vibrant as I've seen in other Bibles. But this is a minor quibble.
The single column text holds approximately 14-15 words across a single line. It's about a word less than the old World Classic Companion bible, and slightly more readable as a result. However, for some reason, they decided to only left-justify the text instead of fully justify it (that is, the right side of the text looks "ragged" rather than lined up neat like the left column...hopefully CBD will publish a few pictures so you can see what I mean.)
There are also no references in this Bible. For a "reader's" edition (what a single-column paragraph Bible is best suited for) rather than a "study" Bible, that is probably a plus, minimizing the clutter on the page. (One minor quibble, not unique to this Bible: regardless of having cross-references, it would be nice to always give the reference for a direct quotation of the Old Testament in the New Testament.)
There are also no maps in the back...again, not vital in a "reader's" Bible. It does have a paper (not glossy) presentation page, a single ribbon marker, the parables of Jesus reference, important events in Christ's life reference, a section on God's promises and section on Christ's miracles. There are no introductions to the books of the Bible. The paper has gold gilting.
All in all, a solid little Bible. I don't know yet how it will hold up under heavy usage, but it looks pretty well constructed. (Please note: like all Leathertex Bibles do NOT leave out in a hot car, unless you want the cover ruined.)
Q: Do you have dimensions? Is the binding glued or sewn? Thanks!
This 4" x 6.25" x .75" Bible has a sewn binding.
Q: Does this Bible say anything on the spine of it? More specifically, does it say anything like 'HOLY BIBLE' at the top, & 'NASB', or 'New American Standard Bible' underneath that? I was just wondering. Usually, ALL Bibles at least have "On the spine printing". Thank you in advance for the answer!
Yes, this Bible says in big lettering right down the spine - New American Standard Bible.
Q: What's the text size?
The print size on this Bible is 6 point.
Q: Where is this NASB Large Print Compact Bible printed? USA? China?
This Bible is printed in China.
Q: Will this edition include the Apocrypha?
No, this Bible doesn't include the Apocrypha.
