The NASB Giant-Print reference Bible is designed to be easily read by older readers and the visually impaired. This Bible features large, clear text and is bound in a variety of quality materials. If you are searching for an economical giant-print edition, this Bible is an excellent choice. About the Binding & Cover The edition featured in this review is bound in Leathertex, an artificial leather that is flexible and durable. Leathertex is thought to be as durable as bonded leather, though it has not been on the market long enough to know for sure. This edition is also available in bonded leather, hard back, and genuine leather. The binding is sewn for added durability. Size: 10.2 x 7.5 x 2 inches What's inside? The text size of this edition is 14 pt, an excellent text size for those needing a giant print edition. The layout of this Bible is double column format, red-letter edition, with subject headings. Features of this edition include: translation notes, a detailed Dictionary/Concordance, 13,000 end-of-paragraph cross references, 8 full color maps, pages for family record/ family tree and located in the back are Introductions to the books of the Bible. This edition has one burgundy ribbon marker and the pages are gilt in gold, which looks elegant with the burgundy cover. In the Front 1. Presentation Page 2. Family Records 3. Forward to the NASB 4.

Dictionary/Concordance 2. Introduction to the books of the Bible 3. 8 full color maps About this Translation The translation used in this edition is the Updated New American Standard Version. The New American Standard Bible (NASB) is a revision of the 1911 American Standard Version. The American Standard Version is a reversion of the King James Version. Many view the New American Standard Bible as one of the most literal translations of the 20th-century. Since its completion in 1971, the New American Standard Bible has been widely embraced by many as "the most literally accurate English translation" from the original languages. In 1995, the Lockman Foundation reissued the NASB text as the NASB Updated Edition (or more often known, the Updated NASB or NASB95). Since then, it has become known simply as the "NASB" and has replaced the 1971 text in most current printings (although the Thompson Chain Reference Bibles, the Open Bibles, and the Key Word Study Bibles use the 1977 text for their NASB editions). My Personal Opinion: The quality of this Bible is excellent for an economical edition; the binding is sturdier than many other giant-print editions, and the text is a large, clear size making this edition easier to read. To test the readability of this edition I asked my friends and family for feedback. My mother found this edition to be very readable and a pleasure to use.
