This is in my openion one of the greatest bibles I have a KJ too. I can spend hours running the chains each deeper than the last opening up the word of God and alowing greater understanding. I love it.
The NASB Thompson Chain Reference Study Bible has been our congregation's choice for a gift to our graduating seniors for a number of years. The accuracy of the translation coupled with the many study helps provides a great basis for continued growth in the knowlege of God's word. The quality of the materials and binding insures many years of useful life.
This bible is great! I bought this for my husband as he was seriously in need of a new study Bible. I usually use KJV, but he does alot of ministering to other people and finds most people are more able to connect to the wordage of the NAS. Though I still do most of my personal studies with KJV I love this for reading aloud to my children! It is easy for them to understand but is not "dumbed down." My children are young-7 and under and they are able to understand the basic point and will occasionally make remarkable comments so I decided to read from this bible verses a childrens bible. For my husband the study helps are invaluable and I like that they are in the back of the book instead of a footnote mixed in. There are so many wanderful features about this bible I cannot address them all here. Overall a great buy! Looks as though it will hold up well but we put it in a bible case anyway.
