This is the bible for which I've been waiting. I have always been fond of the study tools in the NIV Study Bible, but I have never been satisfied with the NIV translation. The NASB is credited as the most accurate and literal translation. With the 1995 update it's even more readable. The study notes cover historical, archeological, and devotional information. The center-column references are exhaustive. There are very detailed in-text maps and charts that provide supplemental informtation. The book introductions provide extensive information on the background of each book as well as providing a detailed outline. In the back of the bible there are three indexes. There is a subject index, an index to the study notes and the NASB concordance/dictionary. In the front of the bible there is a very detailed chronological timeline. There are also several essays on selected subjects. This is a very useful study tool and by far the most complete study bible in the New American Standard that I've ever seen.

If you are a serious student of God's Word, and are looking for a Study Bible...THIS is the one to buy! I have used the NIV study Bible for years, but the thing that has always bothered me about the NIV is the translation itself. It has been my constant experience that when you read a dynamic-equivalent translation, one thought lingers in the back of the mind--"Is this what the Word of God REALLY says?" The New American Standard erases that lingering question. One can read this the NAS with confidence knowing that this translation is as accurate and literal to the original that one can find today! Thus, the superiority of the NAS--as a translation--is the basic reason for buying this study Bible.
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.

If you love the NASB, and are a serious student of the Word, this is the bible for you. It has the award-winning study notes of the NIV Study Bible plus the reliable New American Standard Bible translation with the 1995 update, hailed the most accurate word-for-word (while extremely readable) bible on the market. It has exhaustive center-column references. Charts on almost every bible subject possible are included. Introductions to every book of the bible are extensive and include information on the following: Style, Date, Author, Subject Matter, Cultural Information, and very indepth outlines. There are hundreds of intext maps and a very extensive chronology of the bible included at the beginning of the bible. The best thing about the study notes is that they are not biased to any particular denomination. When more than one view exists on a subject, generally at least three views are presented. Information from all kinds of archaeological and historical sources offers much needed insight to difficult passages. This is your one-stop for cultural, historical and theological information for almost every verse in scripture. I'm a youth minister and this bible is my main source of study and lesson preparation. I find that I don't need much more than this. If you're a minister or just a student of the Word, then you can't go wrong with the NASB Study Bible.

The NASB study bible is probably the best study bible on the market. When studying, having a literal translation is the best. Of course, referring to a more dynamic thought-for-thought translation for general reading or devotional reading sometimes is better, but when it comes to in-depth study nothing beats the NASB.

So how does the NASB study Bible compare to all these new study bibles that have come out?

NASB vs ESV "3 reasons why the NASB is better"

1. I think "essentially literal" (ESV) is not as good as "most literal" (NASB)
2. The bulk of the ESV Bible, with many tools and items that would probably only ever be used once or twice (introductions, articles, etc.), is a little too big to be practical (aka bringing to church).
3. I honestly think the notes in the NASB study bible are better than the notes in the ESV study Bible.

NASB vs. NLT "3 reasons why the NASB is better"

1. The NLT is a very dynamic translation. I think that most of the time it accurately conveys the meaning of the text. However, it does this by adding words for clarification and changing the word order - when it comes to idioms the NLT translates them all. Thus, if one is trying to use the NLT for study purposes the most you can study is what the text probably meant, not what the text actually says and then figuring it out what it meant. The NLT translators had to make decisions when deciding what the text meant, but sometimes other meanings are possible. But you will not have access to those other meanings with the NLT (though the notes sometimes make up for that).

2. Again, the NLT study bible is very bulky. A little more practical than the ESV study bible though.
