Editorial Reviews

Review

I appreciate the NAS and this wide-margin format is brilliant if you like making notes beside scripture texts as this format has generous space for your comments. The paper used is high quality but not so thin that the notes you add will show through to the other side. Other helpful features include cross-referenced verses, a concordance, red letters for the words of Jesus, a section of lined paper for additional notes and a high quality sewn binding which enables the Bible to open flat.

Book Description

This Bible uses the NASB version and is presented in Cambridge's popular Pitt Minion format, widely admired for its compact but clear type. The words of Christ are printed in red and there are cross-references, a dictionary/ concordance and maps. This Bible is of the very highest quality, printed on India paper with beautiful art-gilt edges and bound in brown goatskin leather with two ribbon markers. --This text refers to the Leather Bound edition.

I'll give it a 5. I can't help but compare it to the KJV Concord Wide Margin.

It is much lighter and somewhat thinner than the Concord Wide Margin due to paragraph format, smaller print. The inner margin is a bit narrower than the Concord as well.

The goatskin is more pliable which I do prefer. The print is clear and readable. However, I do find the Concord bold font to be the most readable of all.

This NASB has fine paper, pages do not stick together, easy to navigate - this is a Cambridge trait.

I personally prefer the verse format over the paragraph format, but only because it is easier to look up single verses. I'm sure I will get used to it, the paragraph format is superior for reading and getting the context. I would also have prefered it in black letter edition.

Of course with the NASB, you get a superior concordance including proper names, and of course, great center column references, far superior to the Concord KJV.

In terms of quality, I would think that this would be the best made NASB available. I have returned some of the other calfskin editions for quality reasons. Once you have owned a Cambridge (or some of the fine Oxfords), you come to expect a lot when you shell out $150 for a permium leather bound bible. This NASB meets that bar.

This Bible is really what I've been looking for for some time. Its high quality construction, like the little sibling, Pitt Minion version, jumps out at you when you lift if from the box. The leather feels even better than the Pitt Minion Version. As the description says, its wide margin, larger print, and heavier paper, all make it an ideal "working/studying bible." Not to be confused with a study bible, it's a reference bible in which you can write your own notes, important observations, add to the references, etc. It has 2 ribbon markers, 15 very high quality maps (one map takes two pages, therefore 16 pages of maps), with a substantial map reference/guide, concordance, and additional blank and ruled pages at the back for lengthy notes. Its just so nicely laid out and the materials are so high quality, Its what I wanted for my long-term repository of notes and study.
I found two minor issues, one quality and one design. The design issue is that the ruling on the ruled pages is printed all the way to the margins, and with several pages it adds up and is visible on the "gilded edges", especially when the bible is open, it just is not aesthetically pleasing as it could be. By this I mean that you have these beautiful gold/red pages, and then in one section of the face of the edges, you have all these little tick marks running the full length of the edge (open face of the closed Bible). Its minor, but could have and should have been avoided by not printing the lines the entire width of the page - an oversight in an otherwise very fine work.

Cambridge Bibles are the world's best. There is simply nothing close to their markmenship. I only wish that other Bible publishers such as Zondervan, Nelson, or Crossway would take a lesson from Cambridge Bibles and follow their lead.

In this edition of the popular Pitt Minion series of Bibles from Cambridge we find the world's most literal translation, the New American Standard. The Pitt Minion comes in the King James and the New International Version (both of which are worth getting as well), but the NASB tops them both in its literal translation. I hope that Cambridge will release the Pitt in the New King James and the English Standard Version in the future.

The Pitt Minion has great leather, onion pages (or commonly called Bible paper), and has cross centered references. The words of Christ are in red. The only negative to the pitt minion series is the small letters. If you need reading glasses then I do not recommend the pitt series but for those who enjoy the NASB and want it in genuine calfskin leather in a compact form, this Bible is for you.

Like most Cambridge Bibles, the quality of this Bible is top notch. It is a bit pricey, but when you consider it should last a lifetime the cost is worth it. Personally, I have only two minor points that I would change if I could: (1) The 8 pt. type is a little bit smaller than I would ideally like; (2) The inner and outer margins are not the same size. As this is a double column Bible, it would be ideal if they were. I would hasten to add, though, that the smaller inner margin is still 1" wide, which is sufficient for my own use. Again, all in all, if you're looking for a top quality wide margin NASB, and if the caveats don't bother you, you won't do better than this.

UPDATE on 4/26/08: Examined the goatskin. Absolutely the finest Bible covering I've ever seen. If you can handle the extra $$$, you absolutely won't regret it.

I have many bibles, and won't attempt to argue the ESV vs. RSV vs, KJV vs NASB, etc. issue, I own several copies of each. However, I must say that this is very close to the best Bibles, I have ever owned. From an overall quality perspective, its probably the best, from a materials perspective, it might be second after the Signature Series from Thomson (which does not have the NASB available). The binding, leather, pages, and very importantly, print quality, is just wonderful to hold and use! Add to this, the small yet readable and useful size, and the concordance and references, this is a must have! IF you're looking for a small, reference NASB, this Bible is undoubtedly the best available.
