He'll send his favorite son David to cut off two hundred of their foreskins and present them to the then king in exchange for stealing his wife. If that doesn't motivate you to convert to the bible's deity of choice, I don't know what will. The methods of retribution are creative and unique. Killing cities with fire or the whole disobedient world with a flood lead the way in terms of headcount, but whether it is frogs, locusts, or drought, this dude makes his point: my side or else. Then you get the new testament. Sure the same old contradictions are there. But this time, the story gets washed through the eyes of people whose grandfathers weren't even born during the events they are writing about. The worst part is that the modern interpretation of who the reader is told to emulate is absolutely offensive. The Jesus portrayed by the gospels is an awful model of how to live your life. He is a model of self-destruction. Why live out your life helping the poor and healing the sick or god forbid being a good example to people? Instead, a life of immolation as a model is chosen. Give until you are dead and don't pursue anything on your own. That is your standard. Live to that. Human's who want to live forever (sigh - when is man going to stop thinking they are anything but finite) are told to emulate a man who choose a path of self-destruction. Overall this is an angry, confused book written by a bunch of savages who tried to make the world make sense, just like people have done since the beginning of time. On a side note, for a good time, read Leviticus. Best book of the bible in a landslide. . . if it were a comedy. Taken seriously, it is a scary window into the mindset of the people who follow this tripe. Don't worry though, 99% of them will never read the bible and instead take other people's word on something that they claim is the most important thing in their lives.

    most literal and accurate. this is my bible of choice. stitched and genuine not bonded leather. i use it daily and it needs to be tough. ESV and NKJV are also very good. I read the King James in its original translation and it was not nearly as hard to read as most people protest from my view but i see no value over the NKJV as it is a lot more readable and just as accurate unless your dealing with the "king james only" club. whats the best bible to read? the one you actually will. if that’s the most literal and accurate. this is my bible of choice. stitched and genuine not bonded leather. i use it daily and it needs to be tough.

    I learned about my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Also, the source of life, the result of the fall, the redemptive love of God, how to live, how to love, how to die, what happens afterward, and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.

    OK, I know it may seem trite to put the Bible in among the books I'm currently reading, but there have been some significant changes in my life that compelled me to add it. First I lost my dad on 9/4/09, and love, prayer, and the Bible are what held me together during that time. Also, as I've been talking with my therapist in the past couple months, I've had a tremendous breakthrough with my depression, anxiety, agoraphobia...you name it...and it's all because I've been speaking aloud and rebuki OK, I know it may seem trite to put the Bible in among the books I'm currently reading, but there have been some significant changes in my life that compelled me to add it.

    Yes, I know, I'm surely going to hell for giving the Bible only 4 stars. But some of it is really hard to get through. And, this is the one I was presented with when I was confirmed Catholic. Yes, I've actually read all three. And studied them through various theological courses.

    (view spoiler)[The Bible IS amazing. It is full of 'impossible' prophesies like the city of Tyre being destroyed and (if I remember correctly) it had recorded in it, information on the Assyrian Empire long before we even discovered ruins from Assyria. I find the prophesy on Tyre the most fascinating one (Ezekiel 26:3-21) where it says: "...therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Tyre, and I will bring many nations against you, like the sea casting up its waves.

It is full of 'impossible' prophesies like the city of Tyre being destroyed and (if I remember correctly) it had recorded in it, information on the Assyrian Empire long before we even discovered ruins from Assyria. I find the prophesy on Tyre the most fascinating one (Ezekiel 26:3-21) where it says: "...therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against you, Tyre, and I will bring many nations against you, like the sea casting up its waves. They will destroy the walls of Tyre and pull down her towers; I will scrape away her rubble and make her a bare rock. Out in the sea she will become a place to spread fishing nets, for I have spoken...and her settlements on the mainland will be ravaged by the sword...from the north I am going to bring against Tyre Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon...He will ravage your settlements on the mainland with the sword; he will set up siege works against you... They will plunder your wealth and loot your merchandise...and throw your stones, timber and rubble into the sea...I will make you a bare rock, and you will become a place to spread fishing nets and you will be built no more!" What actually happened? Why don't you read up on it...King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon came and destroyed the mainland city of Tyre! However he was unable to effectively attack the island city. So he laid a 13 year siege, forcing the island city of Tyre to accept Babylonian rule, but the city remained intact! The prophesy says that many nations not just Babylon would rise against Tyre as the book Exploring Creation in General Science says: "The Prophesy in Ezekiel states that Nebuchadnezzar will destroy the mainland city, but it says that 'they' will throw stones and timbers into the sea. In using the pronoun 'they' instead of 'he,' the prophesy makes the distinction between Nebuchadnezzar and the others that will stand against Tyre. Thus, the pronoun 'they' does not refer to Nebuchadnezzar; it refers to the other leaders who will try to destroy Tyre. As history tells us, other leaders did indeed, march against Tyre." (Exploring Creation in General Science) It goes on to say: "In 333 B.C., Alexander the Great demanded that Tyre allow him to occupy the Island City. The King of Tyre, Azemilicus, was willing to grant Alexander dominion over Tyre, but was unwilling to let him and his army occupy the city. Alexander was thus forced to attack Tyre in order to gain full control over her strategic location. According to Encyclopedia Britannica Alexander had no fleet with which to attack the Island city of Tyre, so he completely destroyed the mainland city and dumped all its debris into the ocean. There was so much debris that Alexander was able to construct a wide bridge of debris from the mainland city to the Island City, making it possible for his army to march close enough to Tyre to build siege engines (like catapults) and attack the city." It's quite amazing how well what actually happened matched up with what Ezekiel prophesied in the Bible Again quoting from Exploring Creation in General Science Ezekiel also predicted that many nations would march against Tyre, and that's exactly what happened. After Alexander the Great's conquest, the Seleucidae, the Romans, the Moslems, and the Crusaders all took turns conquering Tyre. After all this fighting, Tyre lay in ruins. Today, old Tyre is, indeed, scraped down to bare rock. According to historian Nina Jidejian, 'The Port [of Tyre] has become a haven today for fishing boats and a place for spreading nets' (Tyre Through the Ages, Nina Jidejian, El-Mashreq Publishers: Beruit, 1969, p. 139, emphasis added)." Wow! What an amazing prediction, it is amazing that we have such an awesome all powerful God on our side!. (hide spoiler)] I have been reading two books called Rise of the Fallen and Cloak of the Light by Chuck Black, they are about the war between Angels and Demons told in a fiction/factual way, they are really great and they have given me a lot to think about as I read through the bible. I found several great verses that are really interesting after have read through these books and the Bible: "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." (Ephesians 6:21) "...an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, 'Arise, take the young Child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him.'" (Matt 2:13) My favourite Bible Characters: Jesus Luke John Timothy Joshua Description: A factual book telling you everything that is of absolute importance to humanity, how we should live, what is planned for our future etc. as well as a thorough history of the nation of Israel and the world. Author Description: God inspired the Bible to be written and it is not written by any one man. God is the creator of all things living and dead, and he controls the universe. He has however given man his own free choice and to be frank we messed it up big time. A world that was perfect has become corrupt. And people no longer know the truth. God however has a plan and he is putting that plan into action now, as sometime (we don't know when) he will return to rule the earth in justice. Main thrust of the Bible: I just pointed out some of the main thrust of the Bible above. But the absolute main thrust is that God is not done with us. He loved us and no matter how corrupt we get he will always love us, in fact: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16 NIV) The price has been paid and God gave us a free ticket to eternity. This is the part that so many people struggle to comprehend, Jesus was raised to life through the power of God the Father. The other important thing was the formation of the Church, people get confused as to what the Church means. Most people think of it as a cold building with painted glass windows. But the church is actually the body of people that Jesus called to be a witness to the world and to minister to fellow Christians. The Bible also clearly tells us that the world (contrary to secular beliefs) was created in 6 literal days. Bible scholars have also worked out from dates given by the Bible that the world is only (surprise, surprise) 6 or 7 thousand years old, not millions of years old as is widely supported by secular people. What I believe: Besides what I have already written, I believe that the Bible aught not to be rated and you can't really rate it. I also personally believe that the Bible teaches that the Children of Israel were and are God's Chosen people. As with Non-Believers no matter how far the people of Israel wander, they are still loved and blessed by God, and can't we see that blessing displaying in the nations life today, with the 6 day war and all that, the Israelites are being looked after by a loving God. That is just some of what I believe. "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness," (Timothy 3:16 NIV) More To be added in the future as I learn more and more ever day about the bible!!!

    Seriously, the Bible is my favorite book. It's got a little of everything in it that I love (history, science, mystery, Mystery, love, romance, explosions and fire, wisdom, prophecy, darkness, poetry, unanswered questions, self-help, tragedy, beauty...) I hate that the author is "Anonymous"; I call him God. THIS particular Bible, I'm reviewing both the translation (NASB) and the publisher (Cambridge).

If you read like I do, though, do yourself a favor, save yourself some money in the long run, and BUY A CAMBRIDGE. Seriously, yes, they're expensive. But my other NASBs have the pages falling out, so you lose your notes, then you have to figure out how to 'dispose' of it (if you're not trying to duck-tape it together). HAND-SEWN is a must. NICE PAPER that takes ink is a MUST (though I use colored pencils mostly). MAPS and some kind of concordance are very nice. But don't get bogged down with a book so big you can't carry it with you and actually READ it; that's why this edition was so perfect for me: it's luggable! This edition just has it all; I've had it for years now and not one loose page or torn corner! If I lost it, I'd buy another just like it.

    I gave my life to Jesus in 1973, and started reading the KJV. After about a month I switched to the NASB version and its been my favorite ever since.

    I love to read the bible. It's been six years since God got ahold of me, and I'm just finishing my sixth time through the bible. My hope is to read through it every year for the rest of my life. NASB is my favorite translation because (1) it's the most literal, and I am an extremely literal person, (2) it's so poetic, especially through Psalms and Proverbs and the major prophets, (3) it's the easiest version to memorize.

He pours out His heart in the Old Testament, and He pours out His life in the New Testament.

    The Holy Bible is the love letter from God to us. He used several people to write the Bible in order to show His love for all His creation. And it is with honour that I finished reading this love letter for the third time and I would also like to encourage you to do the same.

He also created the man and the woman, Adam and Eve. And He The Holy Bible is the love letter from God to us. He used several people to write the Bible in order to show His love for all His creation. And it is with honour that I finished reading this love letter for the third time and I would also like to encourage you to do the same. "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth" This is Genesis 1:1. God has started His creation. He created everything that your eyes can and cannot see. He also created the man and the woman, Adam and Eve. And He told them: “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” However, that's exactly what happens one day. They ate it after being persuaded by the serpent. The consequences of sinning result in the broken relationship with God. For God is saint. They are expelled from the Garden of Eve. From Adam and Even to us there is a separation, we are separated from God. Yet, God so loves His creation that He promises to send the Messiah to restore this broken relationship with Him. God has a lovely plan. God decided to send His only Son to the world, so that whoever believes in His Son may be saved and live forever. The Messiah is Jesus Christ, who came to this world, to live, die and ressurreced after three days for me and for you. The plan seems to be very simple but it involves faith. It involves believing that Jesus is the Son of God, that He is the Christ. John 1:11,12 says: "(JESUS) came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God". That's why we have Christmas, to celebrate the birth of Jesus, because without Him, we cannot find God, because Jesus said “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6) When we receive Jesus in our heart, we have a new life and when we die, we have ETERNAL life with God. God loves us passionately and He's anxious for a relationship with us. A relationship of guidance, protection, involved by His love. Do not let sin be an obstacle for not being with God, but allow Jesus to be the bridge to reach God. I usually say that we are on one side of the abysm and God is on the other. The abysm that separates us from God is a life without Jesus. When you believe in Jesus, the bridge is constructed and you walk safely to the other side, to have a life with God, in Christ. And my one and only desire is to help you understand the love that God has for you, shown in His Son Jesus Christ. And even if it is necessary for me to write more so that you can understand God's love, I will. Because deep inside you feel that you need God but sometimes you just don't know how to find Him. Let Jesus do it all fo you ;) And...Merry Christmas. Larissa Fauber

This Bible is black letter edition. The text size is 6.8 type, which is good size for a compact Bible. 6.8 type is very readable when compared with other compact editions. The format of this edition is double-column, verse format, with subject headings. The paper is an off white color, and is non reflective which many people like in a compact Bible. The paper also has a semi-transparent quality. I do not recommend using highlighters in this Bible. If you would like to highlight passages I recommend Crayola color pencils they work best on thin paper. This edition includes a built in navy blue marker, which matches very well with the cover.

The American Standard Version was 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 This compact Bible contains the updated New American Standard Bible. 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 supplanted the 1971 text in most current printings (although the Thompson Chain Reference Bibles, the Open Bibles, and the Key Word Study Bibles still use the 1977 text for their NASB editions). My Personal Opinion I like the style of this cover, the design is simple yet elegant. I also like the rich navy blue color. Its always nice to see beautiful cover styles for Bibles. This edition comes in four other colors, and styles. The compact size & light weight of this Bible makes it a good choice for traveling. The New American Standard Bible Compact edition can make a very elegant gift for someone on the go

Please understand that I am not trying to add notches to my Bible-reading belt, nor am I a legalist who thinks reading yearly makes me better than others. Rather, reading the Word of God is crucial to my walk with God. Knowing His Word allows me to better know His wisdom and will. "Thy Word I have hid in my heart, that I might not sin against Thee." As it states in Hebrews 4:12, "For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." One of my favorite Chrisitan singers, Stephen Curtis Chapman, at the 2009 Dove Awards, discussing his life after his son accidentally ran over his daughter causing her death, summed it up quite eloquently, "Scripture hasn't just become more precious, but it's become the air that I breathe. There have been some mornings where I'm not sure if I'll be able to get out of bed, but now when I read the Bible, it's become my oxygen." I couldn't say it any better, Mr. Chapman.

    One of the issues in purchasing a bible that you plan to both carry with you and read for substantial stretches is finding one that is compact without being illegible due to tiny print size. Correctly selected typefaces are the best remedy for this problem, and this edition gets it right. What the NASB lacks in readability (and I would characterize that liability as slight), it makes up for in accuracy.

Correctly selected typefaces are the best remedy for this problem, and this edition gets it right. What the NASB lacks in readability (and I would characterize that liability as slight), it makes up for in accuracy. While no translation is truly "word-for-word", any word deliberately inserted for clarity that does not correspond to the original language of the manuscripts is indicated in italics, leaving the exegesis largely to the reader. This is not a devotional study bible in the usual sense, as it contains no commentary that does not concern translation issues, and the concordance is pretty weak (and perplexing in terms of which words and names are included). If you're looking for a solid, trusted translation that is as free of contemporary editorializing as possible, this is a good choice.

    Of the three versions of the Bible that I've read thus far (NIV, King James, and NASB), I found the NASB to be the one that spoke to me most clearly and most lovingly. By that I mean that reading the NASB was like having a conversation with an old friend, sitting by a soft fire in comfortable chairs, discussing the ways of God and all that He has done for us. It was a pleasure to read from end to end and it was also the quickest read of the three (NIV took me a little more than eleven months, Ki Of the three versions of the Bible that I've read thus far (NIV, King James, and NASB), I found the NASB to be the one that spoke to me most clearly and most lovingly.

Maybe it was because I read it right after finishing the King James. To date, even though my church uses the NRSV, I find myself carrying the NASB around because it's my preferred version. It combines the poetry of the King James with the ease of understanding of the NIV. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in reading the Bible straight through. The word of God resonates in my heart with the NASB.

    No matter what your background or worldview, this book is a must read. It is easily the most studied/challenged book ever written, not to mention the one that has had the biggest impact on world history. It tells the story of God's relationship to humankind, how the first humans chose to turn their backs on God so He designed a way to restore the relationship back to what it was meant to be.

The Bible is more than a story- it has the power to impact the way you view the world, the way you view yourself, and ultimately the way you view God.

    Did you know most (if not all) serial killers come from religious families? Also, that this book consists of incest, bestiality, sexism, racism, and polygamy? Then goes and says "love one another"? This book repeatedly contradicts itself to the point of it being comical and repeatedly insults the intelligence of the reader. The characters were shoddy, I couldn't follow the plot, and the man character was so far-fetched I couldn't believe a word of it. Considering this was written over 100 years aft Did you know most (if not all) serial killers come from religious families?

    I don't understand much of what's written in this book...particularly the first half. In spite of that...this has been an interesting and even life changing read. It's a great deal like Tolstoy's War & Peace in that there are large sections of it that I'm tempted to skip over...but I keep getting rewarded as I plow through it. I find Jesus to be a most remarkable man and have come to believe in him as God.

He surprised me with his kindness and willingness to sacrifice in the face a people who first throng to him and then murder him. I'm glad the murder thing didn't end up working out so well for them ;)

    "For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea." Habakkuk 2: 14 It doesn't seem to matter how many times I read the Bible, it doesn't matter how often I read those last words in Revelation "The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen." The next morning I open it again, usually a different translation, but once again I read the words "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" I'm pulled in all over again.

    Read the bible in a year, some stretches were hard, Leviticus and some prophets, the disadvantage of reading it in a year is the lacking of depth in a passage for there is only so much time the advantage is that you read the whole book and it is awesome to see all 66 books connect. It is powerful, the word of God

    It's only taken me twenty years, but I finally read the whole Bible through. This book is full of so many truths.

    Always Reading! Romans 15:4 For whatever was written in earlier times was written for our instruction, so that through perseverance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.

    It feels silly to rate the Bible - it's God's Word, of course it's good! I just wanted a record that I read through the NASB version this year.

    I read just the text of this 'quick study' bible. I bought this Bible used a few years ago--was thrilled to do so--because of the layout. It isn't always easy to find NASB Bibles that are a) in paragraph format instead of verse, verse, verse; b) in black letter and not red letter; c) in a font size that is easy on the eyes. This Bible is all three. I do LOVE the NASB translation. It is one of my top three translations of choice. I adore it really.

This Bible is all three. I do LOVE the NASB translation. It is one of my top three translations of choice. I adore it really. It was a joy to read this one over the past few months. I began with Genesis. I ended with Revelation. But I didn't read it cover to cover. I tend to always begin and end the same way. I like to read the first five books together--the books of the law, the torah. I like to always, always, always finish with the works of John. I read John, 1 John, 2 John, 3 John, and Revelation as my last five books. I've also started to save the book of Psalms for my last read in the Old Testament. I'm not sure which translation I'll tackle next. But I know where I'll be reading!

    Completed something I never thought I would...read the Bible over the course of a year. The study and readings helped me realize that beyond being the word of God, the Bible is also an amazing cultural, historical, and literary work. I followed the YouVersion schedule - totally worth it if you’re ready for a larger commitment. Daily readings include a devotional/explanation and require only 20-30 minutes a day.

    I read it in a year. I learned a lot about obedience and sticking to a schedule. I won’t be doing it next year because I feel the Lord has other things for me, but I believe I will do this again in my lifetime. Reading it quickly brought out a lot of new things I hadn’t noticed before. Very helpful.
