Comments: [1] The type is somewhat large by typical Bible standards but by no means "giant"--not even close--despite what the box says; it's actually not even close to being as large as what you'd find in "large print" novels. [2] The box also says that the cover is "bonded leather," but it almost certainly isn't; it seems to be pure paper. [3] One of the most useful features of the NASB (1977 and 1995) is the huge number of translators' notes indicating literal renderings, etc; unfortunately, these are almost all missing in this edition--as is the vast system of cross-references included in reference editions of the NASB. [4] One nice feature is that the pages are sewn in rather than merely glued in, which allows the book to open more easily. [5] The paper seems to be of decent quality, and it isn't tissue-thin.

If you want a copy of the 1977 NASB that includes all the translators' notes, check out the "Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible: NASB Edition"; this includes the translators' notes and thousands of cross-references. When I last checked, the "Thompson Chain Reference Bible-NASB" still used the 1977 NASB (instead of the 1995 NASB), and it included the translators' notes, but did not include the cross-references (but this Bible employs a vast cross-reference system after the Bible text).

I grew up in my Christian life, starting in the '70s, with a '73 or '75 NASB. Though I am now a Majority Text adherent, I'm not legalistic, and I wanted another '70s NASB. It is very accurate in relation to the Hebrew and Greek text, well, at least the one's before '77 were. But the '77 edition had made further changes that remove this edition from the class of very reliable formal translations. It is still good, but there are better. This edition appears to be closer to the '95 edition (Lockman's version of the NIV in my opinion). I gave 2 starts mainly because of the printer's errors. I'd give 3.5 stars for the translation.

This being said, my issues with the NASB 1977 are not so much with the slightly less formal translating (I'm going to look up the Greek and Hebrew anyway). What disappoints me can best be described as "doing what Microsoft did when they released Vista." That is, they knew Vista was still full of problems, but they released it anyway, knowing that later they would repeatedly send out [free] repair updates.

AMG seems to have done the same, but the problem is that you can't fix an already-printed book. You can only spend money on a new one (if they ever fix it). Here are the problems so far:

1. Misspelled words

2. Missed capitalization

3. Missing page headers in spots

4. Formatting glitches

5. Improper end-of-line hyphenation (for instance, the word "your"; "y-" at end of line, "our" beginning the next line)

6. And a really weird one: The introduction to 2 Peter 1 quotes a statement from 2 Peter 1:1. I looked at the actual Bible verse and it read differently. In fact, how they quoted the line in the introduction does not match any of the '70s translations (71, 73, 75, or 77).

I have used the NASB as my study Bible since it first appeared in the 60's
The verb translations are much more helpful than other versions. When the updated version came out it was immediately evident that there had been significant changes to not only the verb translation but also the updated English usage made the text rather informal.
I appreciate the availabilty of this older, more classic version.
I have some concerns as to whether the cover and binding will hold up. Time will tell.
