The Zondervan NASB Study Bible is a premiere study Bible designed for in-depth study, accuracy, and ease of use. The New American Standard Revised Bible In the 1880s the King James Version became the basis for the English Revised Version. The American counterpart was published in 1901 as the American Standard Version. The ASV has been highly regarded for its scholarship and accuracy. By the middle of the twentieth century, the Lockman Foundation, a non-profit Christian corporation in La Habra, California, felt an urgent need to preserve these and other lasting values of the ASV by incorporating recent discoveries of Hebrew and Greek textual sources and rendering them into more current English. The Lockman Foundation published the Gospel of John in 1960, all four Gospels as a unit in 1962, the New Testament in 1963, and the entire Bible in 1971. The NASB represented a conservative, literal approach to translation. While this translation followed the principles used in the ASV, the NASB should be viewed as a new translation rather than merely an update of the ASV. The Lockman Foundation completed an update of the NASB in 1995. The translation team carefully adhered to the principles of literal translation and made no attempt to interpret Scripture through translation. The result was the most literal translation thats both accurate and readable.

Sam5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Study BibleJanuary 20, 2017SamQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Since I am a rather new convert and had not read the Bible much, this study Bible enabled me to understand and grasp what I was reading. My mentor was so impressed with my insight into the meaning of passages that she purchased the same Bible from you.
The glue in spine of the book lets loose with much use.
CourtneySt. Joseph, ILAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Really Good Study BibleFebruary 9, 2016CourtneySt. Joseph, ILAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This Bible is fantastic. I used to read NLT, so the NASB translation took a little getting used to. This study Bible has an in-depth introduction for each book of the Bible, which addresses who wrote the book, the setting, the history, and the purpose of the book. I love the double column format and there's plenty of room for me to write in the margins. The NASB Zondervan Study Bible also includes diagrams and useful maps throughout, along with a concordance and a topical index for notes. I also really love that this Bible has several pages designated for notes, which I wish more Bibles would include.
The Bible lays flat the minute it's out of the box and it's very well constructed. I see this surviving a long time as long as I take care of it. It's held up on my marking really well, but I'm also very careful not to use anything that I know might bleed through, so I don't use ink highlighters and I mostly use Zebra ballpoints or Pigma Micron pens.
The only reason I took off a star is that the study notes at the bottom of the page kind of annoy me. They like to reference to a note in another part of the Bible, so you do a lot of page hopping if you're trying to utilize the notes. For example, I was reading a part of Matthew the other day and I glanced down at corresponding study note to see if it would clear up my confusion. It told me to look up and see what the note in Luke said. It just really interrupts my reading.
I think with a little tweaking Zondervan could publish an awesome Bible.
Daveb5 Stars Out Of 5Best there isJanuary 19, 2016DavebQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have used several study Bibles and I find there is none better than this one. I have computer software that gives me the literal Greek meaning and the NASB translation is the closest to the Original Writing as any translation on the Market. Some of the newer translations tend to try to point the Scriptures to their point of view, Calvinist, Tongue Speaking, etc. instead of what GOD gave us to guide us to HIM.
Roberts/w WashingtonAge: Over 65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5NASB Study Bible, Navy blue bonded leather, indexed.September 9, 2015Roberts/w WashingtonAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a very nice, Navy blue, bonded leather NASB study Bible. The page edges are silver, which looks very nice. The binding is sewn, and it lays flat right out of the box. The print is a very crisp black, on, bright white paper. The indexing is well done, and helps to locate passages quickly. The study notes are very helpful, and should help in your studies of scripture. I would highly recommend a copy of this beautiful Bible, as a gift , or for personal use. It should hold up well with daily use, but only time well tell
May the LORD bless you in your study, of HIS Wonderful WORD.
Bradford5 Stars Out Of 5Zondervan NASB Study BibleAugust 22, 2015BradfordQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was given a copy of the Zondervan NASB Study Bible (ISBN 9780310911487) for review purposes. Receipt of this Bible had neither a positive nor a negative effect on the outcome of this review.
I believe that the Bible I received is a second, since there was some staining on one page. It appears to have been a printing issue. For that reason, I've tried to avoid issues that are probably not found in regular copies. You can view some sample pages of this Bible here on Christianbook.com.
The first aspect that I noticed was the cover. It is called "top grain leather." It looks and feels like bonded leather. When I lay the closed Bible down the cover sticks up. This may not be an issue for many, but I was disappointed since it was advertised as "top grain leather." But then I read an article about the different types of leather. Here is my summary of leather types from that article: Full grain is the best leather. Next is top grain which has some grain left after being sanded to remove blemishes. Third is genuine leather which is from the bottom half of the hide. Finally there is bonded leather which is leftover dust and shavings glued and pressed. If you'd like to read the article on leather types you will find it at Saddleback Leather. So, when you read "top grain," don't make the mistake that I did. I thought it meant "top quality." I have recently been blessed with a goatskin covered Bible which will knock you into a new level of Bible bindings! I expected a cover something like that. But if I understand what I've read correctly, Zondervan is telling the truth. Hopefully this binding will last longer than a bonded leather Bible. A friend who has had one for a few years said that it softens up after a while.
The binding is sewn, not glued. The Bible does lay fairly flat. It is a study Bible, so it is thicker. You will be reading on the curve if you open it to Revelation and lay it on a table. But it stays open on its own.
The print is a thinner type than I am used to seeing. It isn't a bold type at all. In some light it looks weak. The red type in the New Testament appears a faint red or slight pink color. In some passages the red text is printed higher on the page that the black text. In some places it looks lighter than others. These could be issues unique to this physical copy. But the red is a bit more difficult for me to read on certain pages. There is also some ghosting (text on the back of the page showing through), of course, but it was not terribly distracting to me.
Now the most important part! The text is the New American Standard Version (EELBV #8100.120). To evaluate the study notes I use the Bible for my daily reading and see if it answers questions that arise. One day, I got curious about the first and second writings of the ten commandments. I looked up Exodus 31:18 where God gives the two tablets of testimony for the first time. The note here says that these were duplicate documents. Two copies of the same thing - one for each party of the covenant. I didn't know that! I will want to study it further, but I found this really interesting. Another question I had was about Exodus 34:28 where it says "he wrote on the tablets." It isn't clear who wrote. In 34:1 God says that He will write them. In verse 27 it says God told Moses to write down these words. That may not refer to the stone tablets though. The notes for verse 28 say that it is probably God who wrote on the stone tablets.
This is the real test of any study Bible: Does it enhance your study? I don't expect a study Bible to have all the answers to every question. I did find the notes in this Bible to be helpful. For instance, I was reading Isaiah 7:10-16 and had some questions about the text. I found the notes explained it to my satisfaction. The cross references show the corresponding passage in Matthew. But the notes expand on that as well as explaining the current situation with Isaiah. In Esther 7:8, where it says "they covered Haman's face," I hoped for an explanation. The notes merely direct one to Esther 6:12 and the introduction. This is not a terribly important verse. The parts I read did cover the important theological issues.
If I were to choose a passage for a quick theological check it would be John 1:1. The notes here affirm the complete deity of Jesus Christ. In general I find the notes to explain the text without preaching. I think this is key in allowing the reader to understand the text.
There are many extra features throughout this Bible that add to the reader's understanding. There is a full color timeline in the front of the Bible. It is very well done. When I was reading about the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah this timeline helped keep things clear. I prefer using this timeline while reading over using a chronological Bible. It is helpful to stay in one book to keep the proper context but still be able to place the events in the stream of Biblical history.
I find it difficult to keep the chronology of events, especially in the Old Testament, in my mind as I read. I've read a chronological Bible. That is an interesting way to read the Old Testament. This Bible helps by features such as the timeline in the front of the Bible. Tables in the text also keep things in perspective. In the book of Ezra there is a table showing the chronology of events covered by Ezra and Nehemiah. It not only lists the dates but also the relevant passages.
Some features are stuck in - such as "Ancient Texts Relating to the Old Testament." This lists such things as a Cyrus Cylinder from the 6th century B.C. This list appears right before the Old Testament title page. It was interesting to read about other writings from the Biblical period. It got me interested in other writings that are mentioned in the Scriptures.
There are illustrations sprinkled throughout the text. I find them helpful in visualizing the things discussed in the Scriptures. For instance, the ark of the covenant illustration also shows other items from the tabernacle. This includes the lampstand, the table, incense altar and bronze altar. An illustration on the previous page showed the tabernacle layout.
Each Bible book has an introduction. In the dating of the book of Obadiah it mentions two differing theories. I appreciate being shown the different possibilities for some information. I also noticed this in one of the notes (though I can't find the spot now).
I believe this Study Bible is available in other translations such as the New International Standard Version. There is also a new full color study Bible with an new system of notes though I haven't seen it in the NASB yet. I would like to see that setting with my favorite (NASB) text.
I am comfortable with the notes and features in this Bible. I will most likely share this Bible with someone in church to get their reactions to it. I believe this is a good, reliable study Bible. I recently read where someone stated that they read through their study Bible cover to cover, notes, tables, charts and all. I recommend that with this Bible.
