I have the ESV version of this Bible, however, I just love the NASB version. The only thing I would caution is that text is the 1977 version NOT the "updated - 1995" version. The difference is the "thees/thous" in the Old Testament. I love the size of the margins (you can write in them) and not have to give up the larger font, the margins are not as wide as the new journaling Bibles (which have the really tiny fonts). I love this Bible and for deep, deep studying.
I had fairly high expectations going into this particular review project based on what I have heard some others saying about the Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible from AMG Publishers. I can honestly say that this Bible actually exceeded my already fairly high expectations in both content and quality. This is not the normal Study Bible where you read someone's interpretation of most of the Scripture verses at the bottom of the page. This Study Bible is really geared toward anyone that really wants to dive into the Word of God and study it for themselves utilizing the original Biblical languages of Hebrew and Greek rather than relying on study notes that others have done. It takes most of the key and important words and gives you a reference for either the Strong's information or in many cases, the Strong's as well as AMG Dictionary definitions. I really wish I had this Study Bible when I taught the class on how to do your own Inductive Bible Study a few years ago as I would have strongly recommended it to my students. The tools used in this Study Bible may take just a small adjustment time for someone to get used to, but if you have done anything that uses Strong's-type numbers, you will feel right at home. Quality is great, print is overall very good and nicely laid out, I would highly recommend this Study Bible. You can get this Bible in the following translations: NASB-77, KJV, NKJV, ESV, NIV and RVR (Spanish) and many different formats for each a majority of the translations.I received a copy of this Bible in exchange for this review from AMG Publishers and all opinions are my own.
This is an EXCELLENT study Bible that will introduce the reader to the Greek and Hebrew languages and do an excellent job of explaining the meanings of the words in those languages. Lots of useful study aids and the excellent NASB translation make this one of my favorite Bibles. Use this one and a NKJV Bible from MacArthur for what I believe to be the very best Bible study a layperson can get.
I love AMG's products and the layout for this bible is PERFECT for me. Their Greek dictionary is one of the very BEST, even better than Strong's. However, the text in the dictionaries is WAY to small!! I cannot hardly even read half of it, with magnifying reading glasses on?????
The Bible text is GOOD, its just the other text that is too small. I presume that they shrunk the text to save pages because it is a large book, but I bought this Bible primarily for the 'Helps', and especially the Hebrew and Greek dictionaries. IF I did not need such a Bible I would return it.
