This makes an excellent, life-changing gift!
Chris
Great size - actually fits in a regular ol' pocket, unlike some so-called 'pocket' New Testaments that really should be billed as 'purse' or 'carry-on' Bibles.
RAlton
Great pocket size, this is the second one I purchased, so I must like it and plan on getting my to give away.

First of all, this is the new updated version of the New American Standard Bible. If you've seen comparisons of the various Bible versions, the NASB generally is described as the most literal version (word-for-word accuracy) of the Bible that sometimes suffers in readability for that very reason. I believe the reputation has been largely undeserved. There were occasional awkward constructions but, all in all, it was quite readable. With this version they have gone back over sentence structure, vocabulary, etc. with a view toward improving the readability and flow of the language. They have also removed archaic words like Thee and Thou. I think they have succeeded in producing a readable translation without compromising the accuracy. We now have a literal, word-for-word translation that reads with the best of the modern versions.
With this pocket NT with Psalms and Proverbs, I think they have done an excellent job balancing overall size of the Bible and font size/layout. It is small enough to comfortably fit in your pocket, but it is also quite comfortable to read. The quality is outstanding as are all the other Foundation Publications products I have seen. They really do a great job publishing Bibles.
Highly recommended!

Finally found a pocket-sized New Testament that is readable. Text could be a tad larger, but this NAS New Testament is fine. I'd also prefer one column instead of two, but again, compared to all the other small New Testaments I've tried, this one is, alas, possible to actually read.

I reference six different English translations and the Greek during my Bible study. The NASB and ESV (English Standard Version) are consistently, I feel, the most accurate translations. They maintain a literal translation while being easy to read. FOr a personal study Bible, I would recommend the ESV. But the NASB would be my second choice.
But that isn't even what this review is about. It is supposed to be about this little pocket version in particular. I like it. I did give it four stars because the cover is not very protective of the pages. I have a little New King James Version that I was given by the Gideon's and it's cover is much more protective. But still I take this little guy to school every day with me and it holds up. There are so many different Bible styles out there. Don't buy this one for study or anything, but if you want a Bible to carry in your pocket to work or school, this is a good one.

Many of today's translations fail to place accuracy as a high priority. Thankfully, the NASB puts a premium on literal translation, and now with their update, make it easier to read (no "Thee" or "Thou" simply because it is addressing God). And for when compactness is essential, this small NT plus Psalms and Proverbs proves very handy. Highly recommended. For more on the biblical translation issue, see Ralph Martin's "Accuracy of Translation."

If you are looking for a bible to carry on you, this is great. The words are not too small, and the binding of the book is great. This will definitely last you long, even if you are an avid reader and is constantly using it.

This is a great portable pocket Bible. The wording is easy to read and the translation is excellent. I use it every day. It is very easy to understand. It's biblically sound (word by word translation) and the message has not been convoluted. Having Psalms and Proverbs at the end makes it stand out. I have bought 3 of this Bible and I would highly recommend it.

Also, there is a section on Where to find help when feeling certain ways, like needing peace, weary, thankful, etc. The passages chosen for these topics are excellent. There is also a daily readings section and a Suggested Readings section about very important passages in the Bible historically and passages on how to improve your walk in Christ. If you're on the fence about buying it - I would suggest trying it out. For $4 it is a great buy. Fits just right in a pocket or a purse.

If you like the New American Standard Edition, this is a great pocket edition. I carry it with me to school, so I can read it after class.
