The introduction and the notes are not as extensive as the NIV study Bible, but they are nevertheless outstanding and contain a wealth of information.
The cross-references are NOT as extensive as the NIV study Bible--and that is to be regreted; but the NASB marginal notes make up the difference. There is a wealth of enlightening information in the NASB marginal notes--in fact, this is one of the strongest features of this Bible.
The only negatives?
1. The paper is too thin. Any personal notes written in ink will bleed through terribly. High-lighter bleed-through is pretty bad also.
2. There is virtually no room for one to write his/her own notes. I hope they come out with a wide-margin edition of this study Bible.
3. The appearance of the text could have been better. The print is a bit light for these eyes--not bad, mind you--but I would like a font that is a bit larger in size and darker in appearance. The red print is also a bit of a strain on the eyes. To fix these problems, Zondervan will need to print this Bible using a thicker and better paper.

Comments on NASB in general:
This is the "Update" version of the NASB which was done in 1995 to eliminate the THEE and THOU speech similar to KJV. This Update is what most if not all current NASB's will be. I have found that I like the NASB translation at least as much as I thought I would. In comparing it to my NIV (Study Bible also from Zondervan) I have found that there are indeed cases here and there where I find more accurate translation which has actually given me more meaning to particular scriptures. I have found what I believe to be some very important subtleties missing from NIV and other translations. Overall I enjoy the NASB and it has definitely given me a fresh desire to the study the Word.
Comments on the Zondervan NASB Study Bible:
Like it's NIV and other translation Zondervan Study Bible predecessors this has a good cross-reference system and study notes. The aesthetics are very nice, the font being slightly smaller to accommodate all the text and notes, but the layout and font system used definitely give it a modern look while still maintaining readability. I was however, less impressed with the lack of updating in the charts and maps. I would have liked to see more updated, detailed, and colorful maps and charts than the exact same ones found in the Zondervan Bible's over a decade older. Here I think some improvement may be needed, but they are still very good and useful and should not be a major consideration as they are still most likely better than other publishers.Read more ›

Poor treatment of the "Lord's Supper" treating it as "fact" that the Eucharist is only a 'symbol'. Other views are not even considered. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Ed
